Seeking a Rad Executive Assistant


The position of Executive Assistant at Against the Grain is a challenging and diverse role that will require tasks ranging from sensitive data entry and manipulation to daily errand running and manual tasks.  Our EA will primarily assist Adam Watson, the Managing Member handling the bulk of executive and financial operations but will also involve more limited assistance to the other three Managing Members of the company.  Just as Against the Grain is a unique player in the already eclectic field of craft brewing, so must our EA be unique.  Many of the tasks required will be the kind of task that usually gets done in a suit behind a nice desk.  Instead you may be doing these tasks in a pair of shorts at the bar while listening to metal.  Still excellent?  Read on.
