Position Description:

Skysong Innovations - Director of Business Development, Digital Products

 

What we do:

ASU Enterprise Partners is a global-reaching non-profit based in Tempe, AZ. We raise resources to support students, researchers and programs at Arizona State University so that they can improve the world.

As is customary at ASU, we operate a little differently: not only do we cultivate philanthropy, we also identify real estate, technology transfer, international partnership and defense research opportunities that yield private support for the university. You can learn more about each of these entities at www.asuenterprisepartners.org.

 

Who we are:

Our team is varied - fundraisers, designers, scholars, financial wizards, ex-CEOs, filmmakers, venture capitalists, inventors, volunteers - and each member brings a different perspective to our vision.

Regardless of background, we share a mission that we can help, that quality higher education should be accessible -- no matter from where one comes -- and that we are responsible for the wellbeing of the communities we live in and serve.

 

Want to advance the most innovative university in the country - and your work?

Join us.

There is no single career journey at Enterprise Partners. Roles often shift as passions are discovered. You'll be encouraged to look across the organization to determine if new areas are of interest - whether in fundraising, real estate development, social media or something else. Training courses are offered every week, and our main offices face ASU's Tempe campus, where our employees' tuition is significantly reduced.

Our advancement opportunities are real - and so is the ability to be part of an intellectually stimulating, people-focused, mission-driven team doing meaningful work in a beautiful, vibrant, sunlit location.

Details about our comprehensive benefits are available at https://www.asuenterprisepartners.org/careers/benefits.

Position Description:

Executive Assistant to CFO - ASU Enterprise Partners

 

What we do:

ASU Enterprise Partners is a global-reaching non-profit based in Tempe, AZ. We raise resources to support students, researchers and programs at Arizona State University so that they can improve the world.

As is customary at ASU, we operate a little differently: not only do we cultivate philanthropy, we also identify real estate, technology transfer, international partnership and defense research opportunities that yield private support for the university. You can learn more about each of these entities at www.asuenterprisepartners.org.

Who we are:

Our team is varied - fundraisers, designers, scholars, financial wizards, ex-CEOs, filmmakers, venture capitalists, inventors, volunteers - and each member brings a different perspective to our vision.

Regardless of background, we share a mission that we can help, that quality higher education should be accessible -- no matter from where one comes -- and that we are responsible for the wellbeing of the communities we live in and serve.

Want to advance the most innovative university in the country - and your work? Join us.

There is no single career journey at Enterprise Partners. Roles often shift as passions are discovered. You'll be encouraged to look across the organization to determine if new areas are of interest - whether in fundraising, real estate development, social media or something else. Training courses are offered every week, and our main offices face ASU's Tempe campus, where our employees' tuition is significantly reduced.

Our advancement opportunities are real - and so is the ability to be part of an intellectually stimulating, people-focused, mission-driven team doing meaningful work in a beautiful, vibrant, sunlit location.

LOCATION: Phoenix, AZ

THE ROLE
The Manager, Regional Operations role is the backbone of our office-wide systems and operation, and is crucial to the success of our staff and region. Think of this role as the "Office Manager Plus," meaning you will effectively run office operations, while also taking on important work streams related to our budget, finances, compliance, and all staff engagement, all while operating with an unwavering customer service ethic. The person in this role needs to think of themselves as a regional culture leader, as their work and communication will uniquely impact every regional team. This role will work closely with the Executive Director, Chief of Staff, and the Manager, Regional Support & Communications role to form the Phoenix Regional Operations team.

The person in this role needs to be excited about setting-up systems, getting all of the details right, and be willing to jump in and troubleshoot various issues as they arise, whether it be a malfunctioning copy machine, helping a staff-member set-up a conference room, or sitting down with team budget trackers to track team expenses.

We are seeking individuals who align with our mission, core values and commitment to Diversity Equity & Inclusiveness and are ready to join us in this global movement.

THE TEAM
Communities across the vibrant and diverse city of Phoenix are working to create a thriving education system that lives up to their ideals of an excellent education for all.
