The Role

Do you have a passion for social impact? If yes, Socious Inc. is looking for somebody with your enthusiasm and skills to work as part of the team. We are looking for an experienced executive assistant who is curious, driven, and passionate about social impact. If you are looking for a role where you can make a major impact in the world, we want to meet you.

Socious is a community app for social change, powered by AI and blockchain. Many people are interested in contributing to social impact projects, but few of them can do so. We leverage this untapped potential by helping them contribute to society in an easy, fun way through a purpose-driven community app, AI recommendations, and blockchain-based community currency.

We started Socious in July 2021, so as an early employee you’ll be pivotal in shaping the direction of the company.

You’ll be able to work fully remotely, though we'll meet up in person several times per year, so we're looking for someone living in Japan. If you aren't here yet, that's fine: you’ll be able to work remotely until we help you secure a working visa.

In this role, you’ll work closely with executives to facilitate their work.
