Resignation Media, one of the ever-lovin' coolest places to work in Austin, is looking for our next receptionist! We need someone who is friendly, welcoming, engaging, and pleasant to all walks of life (mostly humans, but if you don't like puppies and/or kittens, we may have an issue). Our office has a fair amount of random traffic that just pops in to say "Hi." While we love our visitors, we are (mostly) here to get shit done. You'll have to match that aforementioned kindness with the ability to turn otherwise nice folks away at appropriate times. If you can stick with a firm "no," when needed, you'll kill it.

The right person for this role is highly organized, an excellent multi-tasker, not easily overwhelmed, and confident when interfacing with all levels of management, clients, vendors and staff. Basically: No task is outside of the receptionist's job title in providing for and supporting all employees here at HQ. Sound like fun? That's because it is. Apply with us today!
