Job Requirements


Close proximity to our building at 150 Hooper St. is highly desired, as this role will require quick and easy arrival to the building if issues arise, even at inconvenient times.

You are detail oriented, organized, and able to work independently.

In a perfect world you’ve managed a commercial building before and have worked in an administrative job. In a previous role, you will have demonstrated an ability to plan effectively, but shown the flexibility to handle the unexpected and be fine with changing priorities. Since you’ll be helping the executive team with a variety of tasks, you will need to demonstrate the ability to handle confidential information with discretion and utilize significant amounts of independent judgment.

Since you’ll be interacting with both vendors, staff, tenants, and funders, you must have excellent written and verbal communication skills and be customer service oriented.

We also expect all applicants to be proficient in using standard office computer software/systems (G-suite, Word, Excel, etc.).

SFMade and 150 Hooper are both non-profit organizations that are forward-thinking problem solvers working for creative entrepreneurs. We embrace technology whenever it can help.
