Social edtech startup: educating the poorest 1 billion children

At EIDU, we want to educate the world’s poorest 1 billion children by giving them the world’s best learning content at their fingertips.  As a start, we have created a learning app for young children in the lowest-income areas where it’s especially hard to get the high-quality education that all children deserve. Our solution enables children to learn by themselves, at their own pace, at a fraction of the cost of other alternatives. Over the next years, we will serve the world’s poorest 1 billion children by building the next generation global edtech learning platform.

We are looking for an Admin and Office Administrator. Your role will be a mix of administrative management (HR admin, finance admin), facilities management and in general supporting the wider team. 

What you will be doing

  • Ensuring the office is a great place to work in and to visit by keeping a clean, fully operational and well-run office, coordinating maintenance and cleaning and being the welcoming face of EIDU to all our external visitors
  • Sourcing office supplies and liaising with suppliers
  • Technical problem solving when needed, including the ability to troubleshoot minor issues with the printer, appliances and wireless networks
  • Assisting and handling internal and external communication, such as printing
  • Managing HR administration such as maintaining an accurate and organised HR filing system, onboarding new team members and processing contracts
  • Managing financial administration such as loading payments in the bank, processing budgets, reimbursing expenses and tax certificates
  • Coordinating legal admin such as insurance, contract reviews, work permits and other immigration issues
  • Team and office event management such as weekly team lunches, yearly office events and end of year parties
  • Assisting and supporting the team with the 1,000s of different tasks as they arise in a highly dynamic start up like EIDU

What we are looking for

  • End-to-end ownership: you handle your responsibilities autonomously, from finish to end, on time and with little oversight. You don’t just show up to work at the office, you own the office
  • Highly detail-oriented, thorough, and entrepreneurial; you’re a quick learning self-starter that works well in a fast-paced, start-up environment
  • Exceptional organizing, multi-tasking and self-management skills, e.g., solving ad hoc problems autonomously, creating processes for more effective administrative management, prioritizing tasks and effective time management when everything is happening with tight deadlines 
  • Positive and flexible attitude towards collaboration and teamwork
  • Passion for EIDU’s mission overall 
  • Preferably 5+ years of experience in a similar position 
  • MS Office or Google Docs (advanced level required for at least one of them)

What we offer

  • Being part of a social mission-driven yet business-minded start up, founded by highly successful serial tech entrepreneurs
  • Working in an entrepreneurial, fun, and result-oriented international team with highly talented people who care
  • Contributing directly to solving a pressing global inequality problem by improving what we do and how we do it on a daily basis
  • Growing your responsibilities as we grow our scale
  • Competitive compensation, including healthcare benefits and equity
