Executive / Virtual Assistant

Location: Anywhere (Remote)


Doubledot Media is a New Zealand-based company creating online tools and training for people looking to start their own online businesses. We’re based in Christchurch, but the majority of our team work remotely from various places around the world. (Living in the future FTW!)

We have a full-time Executive / Virtual Assistant position working directly under our CEO.

Day-to-day responsibilities include:

  • Daily monitoring of key services and metrics, reporting issues to the appropriate staff.
  • Proofing and editing content, both offline and online using our content management systems.
  • Compiling the monthly staff newsletter.
  • Assisting other staff with correspondence, data entry and some online marketing tasks.
  • Contributing to general operating efficiency across the company.

You'll need:

  • Excellent written English and a friendly manner in writing.
  • Common sense and the ability to "read between the lines" to understand what our CEO is thinking.
  • Meticulous attention to detail. Your spelling and grammar should be top notch.
  • Excellent time management skills. Since this can be a remote working position, you'll need to be organized, motivated, and (dare we say) a "self-starter".
  • The ability to learn new software and systems. You'll be working with our custom content management system, so it's good if you're a quick learner and not fazed by learning new tools.
  • Basic book keeping and accounting skills will also be regarded favorably.

Neat things about working with us:

  • Flexible hours
  • Work from home (or from our Christchurch office)
  • Relaxed, ego-free, family-friendly work culture

If you'd like to come work in our Christchurch office in Ferrymead, you also get:

  • Weekly Friday BBQ (or sushiBQ, or ThaiBQ)
  • Novelty coffee mugs
  • An extremely comfortable chair
  • Tap dancing seagulls
