Office manager/ part time
For the past nine years, we're serving clients with outstanding strategic thinking and design.
We've worked with international clients such as Microsoft and Gore-Tex and family-owned brands such as Elkline, Globetrotter, and Bogner. We share our point of view as column writers, contributors to magazines, and on international stages such as the ISPO Retail Show in China. Something we're proud of too is our own "Monday" magazine. With each article we're changing the status quo, little by little, and every time we think we've figured it out another lesson shows up on our doorsteps inviting us to grow.
We make change attractive! Seriously.
Years ago, we were tired to follow the crowd but instead invented our branding methodology, "identity-based brand positioning." You can read all about identity based brand positioning on our website.
As and result, we are an agile, innovative, future-driven agency-studio with one goal: to design sustainable identities that impact people, all life and humanity.
Moving forward, we want to be focusing more on thinking, creating, and to serve our clients with services that help them thrive into a bright future.
OAGM is looking for an "Office-Manager-Organizer-Supervisor-Controller-Processes-Optimizer" (yes seriously), whose passion is, to serve and help other teammates and clients, to become their best, professional and personal self.
How is that challenge sound to you?
ABOUT THE JOB AND WORK
Did you ever watch "Suits" on TV or Netflix? Think about your new position as Donna. Harvey's assistant that is so much more than that. In the show, she is the girl who's got your back at any given moment. That thinks two or three steps ahead to prevent crises before they appear. Donna always has the company's best interest in mind. No matter what. Fundamentally, this job is nothing less than the backbone of "us". You're all for the team... oh, and yes, the founder as well!
Here is a little something about him. He was born and raised in Germany, he founded the company in 2010 and consulted numerous well-known companies around the globe and he now lives on Maui. Okay, that's the easy stuff. Let's talk about his personality. I would call the guy a creative innovator and passionate consultant; nothing more. He is all about future thinking and creating new ideas constantly. One of his most significant talents is his capacity to process situations in seconds and to provide help instantly. People are listening when he talks, but here is the thing: he's not good with the last 30 percent of a project. He needs someone to help him, and that someone is you. You will learn to read his mind, decode his language and thoughts, formulate road-maps to make his ideas happen, get the right people on board and make sure to follow through until the end!
