Part-time Office Administrator

Part-Time Office Adminstrator

Who we are:

HopSkipDrive is a mission-driven company with the goal of making life easier for busy parents by taking some of the stress out of their family's busy schedule while also creating an economic opportunity for women. We are a ride service for kids that helps busy families get their kids where they need to go safely and reliably when their parents can’t.

We were founded by 3 working moms who have 8 kids between them and who developed HopSkipDrive as a solution to their own problems getting kids where they needed to go.  We are a VC-backed company with investment and involvement from nearly every major LA investor including Upfront Ventures, Greycroft and Pritzker. We recently closed a $10.2M Series A led by FirstMark Capital, bringing total funding to $14.1M.

We are based in downtown LA and are now helping families in three major geographies. Our mission, our enormous market potential, our team, and the technology challenges we are solving make HopSkipDrive one of LA’s hottest startups and an all-around awesome place to work.

Who you are

You are a friendly people person with a strong work ethic. Your attention to detail is unparalleled, but you don’t get caught up in the weeds. You do not feel that any job is too small for you; you are the kind of person who picks up trash when you see it. You thrive under pressure and are a master plate-spinner. Most important, you are a naturally empathetic hard worker who values her/his personal relationships. And your grammar rocks.

At HopSkipDrive, we know that to tackle our toughest challenges, we need different approaches, unique perspectives, and new ways of thinking. We are building a team of creative problem-solvers from many different backgrounds.

This position reports directly to the Co-Founder/General Counsel of the company.
