Office Manager / Business Manager Position


We are looking for a skilled, professional, and friendly person to assist in the business operations of our 10-person IT consulting firm in Berkeley near University and 6th.


Because we are a small firm, you will work directly with the firm's leaders, and you will be responsible for everything from office supplies, to client communications, to tax payments and payroll processing. Many of our office procedures are documented, and you'll be responsible for following those procedures and recommending improvements or new procedures as the business grows.


You should have prior experience with business procedures (basic accounting, payroll, taxes, and hiring) and an administrative background or be a very quick study. You'll need to be comfortable accepting a lot of responsibility and able to follow detailed procedures while making few mistakes, and when you make a mistake, you'll be expected to acknowledge and address it quickly. You should be comfortable with computers and with Microsoft Office. Experience with QuickBooks and Access (or readiness to learn) will also be helpful; you'll have a short time to master these skills. You'll also need to be able to supervise a part-time assistant.


This is a great opportunity if you intend to start your own business some day or want exposure to a variety of administrative tasks and challenges. You can even help us write our employee manual! We are a growing and family-friendly firm, and the person in this position is well-placed to grow with us. And if you have an interest in websites, databases, graphic design or other aspects of computer, network, or telephone systems, we can definitely offer growth opportunities in these areas as well.


Full-time or part-time (minimum 20 hours/week) is negotiable. Flex time is possible. Salary is negotiable, but currently targeted at $20-$25/hour. To apply, please send a resume and a cover letter describing what you are most looking for in choosing a place to work.
