Open Positions

Below you’ll find open opportunities to work directly with me to disrupt the culture of calculation and small-spirited ventures and to make things that are both meaningful and real, ordered to people’s thick desires rather than their thin ones. That requires a strong foundation. Here you’ll find all of the current opportunities that exist in this core, foundation-building team. Please check back periodically as this page gets updated from time to time.

Executive Assistant (Part-Time)

Summary: I’m looking for a part-time executive assistant (10-15 hours/week) to help manage day-to-day affairs in both my professional and personal life. Remote work is okay. Pay is competitive, and there will be the opportunity to grow into a larger role if desired.

Core Competencies:

  • Excellent oral and written communication skills
  • Excellent project management skills, or ability to learn quickly (Asana, etc.)
  • Diligence in file organization using Google drive
  • Stellar research skills
  • Competence in Google Docs, Google Sheets, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Powerpoint, and Canva
  • Comfort and ease using social media (LinkedIn and Instagram in particular)

 Responsibilities:

  • Manage email communication across several different email accounts
  • Manage multiple vendors across different domains and projects
  • Help administer a Substack newsletter and Mighty Networks community
  • Screen and respond in a professional way to a large number of requests, developing heuristics for doing so
  • Monitor social media accounts
  • Coordinate logistics for podcasts, events, and media appearances
  • Research and arrange travel
  • Manage calendar/appointments/bookings
  • Project management using Asana or similar tool
  • Manage google drive folders for multiple projects
  • Compile master events list and keep updated
  • Manage a CRM for all key contacts and opportunities
  • Pro-actively lead a weekly call with Luke to review outstanding items
  • Develop best practices and systems for workflow and document them all
  • Compile Meeting Notes and serve as scribe for selected meetings
  • Many more unpredictable tasks—this role will feel like a start-up company environment and requires a high degree of flexibility

Requirements:

  • High school diploma
  • At least one year of experience doing similar work
  • A heart

TO APPLY:

  1. Send a cover letter and resume/CV to m(at)lukeburgis.com. Be sure to state the hourly rate you’re looking for, and please demonstrate familiarity with my work.
  2. Include a 2-minute video introducing yourself. Share why you’re interested in the position and why you think you’re a good fit. You may include a link to it or attach it to your email, or—if you’d like to do it publicly—be sure to tag me at @lukeburgis and get my attention.

Step 2 in the process will involve responding to a few strange emails that I receive on a weekly basis with no direction, using prudence and common sense. Finally, Step 3 will be an interview with me.
