If you have a proven history of increasing responsibilities, and are now confident enough to pursue better pay, stronger culture, and a clearer path to growth--this is the role for you.
The Operations Coordinator supports our Finance, Sales, and People departments and manages our office here in Austin. They report directly to the Director of Operations and are responsible for a wide variety of tasks that will give them a front-row seat as we scale our business. This includes sending invoices and helping authors to make payments, supporting the hiring of Freelancers and Tribe members, managing our agreement and email templates, planning and coordinating Tribe events, and being the go-to for all things office management.
By virtue of your position, you will learn everything about how the Operations division works, and if you do it right, you'll quickly realize your value as a member of this high-performing tribe.
We have big plans and are scaling quickly, so advancement is guaranteed if you’re accountable, produce results, and are committed to learning. When that happens, you'll move into whatever role and department you’re best suited for--finance, sales, people, special projects, or something new that we create together.
But before you get all excited and start applying, understand one very important thing:
This job is no joke.
Expect to work hard and get results. This is NOT for someone who wants to "play start-up." This role is for a motivated person looking for an incredible opportunity to use their drive to learn invaluable skills and advance quickly.
If that describes you, come get it.
We’re Scribe Media, and our mission is to help everyone on earth write, publish and market their book.
The problem is that writing and publishing books are, for most people, a painful and difficult process, loaded with uncertainty and aggravation. Our goal is to make it as simple as possible, so that as many people as possible can do it.
We have multiple ways we help people do this. We can edit and publish an already written manuscript (Scribe Publishing), or we can help people write their book using a structured process with our guidance (Scribe Guided Author), or we can do a structured interview process that gets the book out of them in their words and their voice (Scribe Professional).
And if you can't afford our services, that's fine. We give away all of our information for free. Seriously, it's called Scribe Book School, and it's better than any paid course on the internet.
You can see some press about us here.
And you can see some of the books we've already published here.
Our company was started because a frustrated entrepreneur wanted to put all of her incredible knowledge and ideas into a book, but didn't have the time to write it or the patience to deal with the frustrating publishing process. So we solved her problem. The origin story is here.
Her book became an amazing success, and we realized the world was full of these people--smart people who should write a book, but don’t, because the process is so painful.
These people want to write books, but don't have the time or desire to do it the old way, and that's why Scribe exists: we help people turn their ideas into books that both cement their legacy and impact the world.
Our process has worked for over 1500 authors in six years, and we’re growing fast. Our ultimate goal is to help everyone on earth write and publish a book.
If we do that, we'll help create many thousands of books that would never have otherwise existed, changing the lives of millions of people. That's really exciting to us.
But if you really want to see why we do this...just watch this video of an author we worked with, Philip McKernan.
We're not going to try to pitch you a load of corporate doublespeak bullshit about how great we are. Instead, we’ll just show you proof.
These are all real tribe members, speaking openly and honestly about all aspects of what it's like to be part of this tribe:
You can also watch The Power of Vulnerability at Work, for an excellent glimpse into how much we care about each other as people, and how we approach our relationships.
You can see a bunch more videos here, on our YouTube Channel.
This is the operating system for our tribe: The Scribe Culture Bible.
We are consistently ranked the #1 Best Place To Work in Austin.
Also, Entrepreneur Magazine said we have the #1 company culture in America.
