Location: USA Only, TELECOMMUTE

We are Nowsight, a business intelligence company, searching for a virtual assistant who lives to support others and is already working with another client or two in a similar capacity. We need someone who is in front of their computer, checking email and answering their phone between 9 to 4 pm ET. Though this role will only take 10 to 15 hours a month; it requires you to be on-call for when team members need immediate assistance (mostly related to scheduling).

We want to work with a team player who is proactive, flexible, result-oriented, and comfortable in a virtual autonomous environment.

We are looking to build a lasting relationship with the right person who will grow and learn with us.

Benefits

  • No daily commute! This position is 100% remote and flexible in that you can work from anywhere in the United States.
  • Working with a team who are passionate about technology and business intelligence
  • Hourly rate starting at $35/hour

Please note this is a SUBCONTRACTOR position, and NOT full-time. We are looking for someone who is already working in front of a computer during Eastern Time business hours. The ideal candidate is an already established virtual assistant who is looking for an additional low-hours client and has the flexibility in their schedule to handle last-minute tasks and requests.

If you think this position is for you, in the application portion of this job description, for the question where we ask about your plans for the summer, please do not tell us your plans. Instead, please write "I live in (insert your city and state) and interested in this Virtual Assistant position with Nowsight. I realize this position is an independent contractor position that will require up to 15 hours per MONTH!” Then, please write two or three sentences about a fictional character with artificial intelligence (no plagiarism, please) and two or three more sentences telling us why you think we asked this question as it relates to the company.
