Kano (www.kanoapps.com) is looking for an Office Manager to support our growing team and ensure a tightly run ship. This position is part-time (20hrs), permanent with potential for growth!

We’re a small team where your decisions make an impact. You will have autonomy in creating and maintaining processes and systems that ensure the team is well taken care of and the office is run as smooth as a baby’s bum!  

You’re the type of person who geeks out on spreadsheets and details, and is passionate about creating great culture! Working closely with the People Ops Manager, you will be responsible for maintaining a well-run system, as well as continuously evaluating and adjusting for improvements. 

We offer flexible hours to accommodate real lives (the ones outside of the office too!), a good-natured and nerdy group of peers, the opportunity to make an impact on the work you do, and the chance to work in beautiful Victoria, BC.

You will see success in this role if you are: 

  • A multi-tasker and good at prioritizing. Responsibilities and tasks will vary day-to-day
  • Resourceful and have a proactive attitude -- the ability to stay one step ahead of the team needs will be highly appreciated
  • Entrepreneurial to drive, own and develop new ideas, initiatives and projects
  • Self-driven and don’t get overwhelmed easily
  • Positive and persuasive. You will often be the “face of Kano” both to other team members and the public, so attitude matters here.
  • The details person! Double and triple checking that bases are covered! 
  • Continuously improving our office space to create a positive and productive workplace
  • An event planner! You’ll be responsible for managing and coordinating events both great and small (lunches, parties, team off-sites, etc)
  • Great at Communication! Across teams, departments and up the chain
  • Able to coordinate and manage budgets and purchasing with staff, vendors and the finance team
  • Reflective; Identify and mitigate points of friction in day to day business procedures 
  • Excited about attaining the goals, and upholding the vision and values or our organization! 

The things we’re looking for in your background:

  •  Organizational skills and MAJOR attention to detail
  • 2+ years of experience in either office management, project management or administration
  • Exceptional communication skills
  • Financial literacy
  • Desire to build the best culture and work environment

It'd be a big plus if you have:

  • Knowledge or experience in HR and recruiting
  • Previous experience in a startup environment
  • Previous experience negotiating with B2B vendors and services
  • Experience with ensuring compliance around licensing laws, health and safety, and other statutory regulations
