Live in CA, OR, AZ or CO? Work as a Virtual Assistant for Upwork’s CEO

You can hang with the bigwigs, but you’re just as comfy around commoners.

If this sounds like you, the freelancing website Upwork may have a job for you as a virtual assistant to its CEO.

Ideally, you’ll have a personality that’s confident enough to anticipate the executive’s needs but approachable enough to work with everybody else in the company.

Although the position is virtual, you’ll have to travel to the Bay Area occasionally, so the company is only hiring in Arizona, California, Colorado or Oregon.

The job listing states that this position is contract to hire. According to Glassdoor, Upworks offers its full-time employees benefits like health insurance, paid time off and a 401(k) program, but reviews indicate some contract employees do not receive benefits.
