Greetings, Ninja!

HQ has big, exciting, potentially career-changing news ...

We need a savvy Ninja with buckets of administrative badassery to help manage our team's growth!

OfficeNinjas knows the breadth of admin duties better than anyone, so if you become our Ninja, we won't limit you to a title that keeps you in one lane. The big must-have is a constant willingness to help a small team achieve big things.

We'll also need you to be familiar with the tech landscape, startup life, and various tools and plugins that make processes hyper efficient. If you're already thinking "Heck yes!," click over to our Careers page.

Love your job and can't apply? No problemo—feel free to share the opening with your Ninja pals!
