Data Operations Assistant

We are looking for a part-time Data Operations Assistant to join our team. We are looking for a detail-oriented pop-culture enthusiast, who has comprehensive knowledge of and passion for film, TV, sports, music, video games, or a combo therein. If you are the kind of person who tracks what you’re watching or reading, in a spreadsheet for fun, that’s the passion we’re looking for.

How many countries has The Office been made in and what characters are in every version? What does “Post-punk” mean? When playing Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon is it the interrelated connections between the other actors that you think are interesting? These are the kinds of questions we are faced with every day, and knowing the answer, and/or having the skills to find the answer in a timely fashion, is what we are looking for.

This is a part-time position (15-20 hours per week) with flexible hours. We are remote-friendly and welcome candidates from California, New York, Arizona, Illinois, Texas, Virginia, Washington, and Pennsylvania.
