  • Overview

    Together, our administrative assistants work hard to gather and communicate relevant information, coordinate requests and approvals, and address general concerns so that our technical teams can do what they do best: build amazing software! We invite you to use your organizational skills and attention to detail to provide outstanding administrative support to our development teams in Arlington and Tysons. You’ll work closely with the software development teams in the DC offices as well as be part of a tight-knit administrative team at our headquarters in Redlands, California.


    • Time is precious, so let’s not waste it. Promptly coordinate daily requests from the development teams including meetings and division events, purchase requests, travel arrangements, and registrations for conferences and training classes.
    • Keep the office running smoothly. Maintain adequate office supply levels, manage service calls for office equipment (coffee machines, lights, doors, conference rooms, etc.), ensure safety and IT concerns are addressed right away, and actively coordinate scheduling of conference rooms.
    • Deliver great service. Manage onboarding and offboarding for all new hires, interns, and contractors. Also, partner with HR representatives to handle onsite interview logistics.
    • Do you like to stay in touch? Good! We need you to coordinate workflow processes with various Redlands divisions to ensure appropriate handling of team requests.
    • Put your thinking cap on. You’ll solve administrative problems by analyzing workflows and identifying creative solutions that are in line with company and division policies and procedures.
    • Be an extra pair of eyes. Monitor things such as our timecard system to ensure accurate and timely submissions by the team.
    • Become a subject matter expert. Respond to employees’ questions about administrative policies, methods, and guidelines. Communicate any updates and changes to management so they can be an expert too.
    • Don’t worry about sitting idle. If time allows, you can join our development team to test the software and make sure it’s working as intended. As a bonus, you can learn a little about GIS along the way!


    • 3 years of experience with administrative work involving analysis and recommendations that led to the improvement of administrative procedures, practices, or programs
    • Demonstrated ability to work in a complex department, maintain large databases of information, and interpret policies and guidelines
    • Motivation and passion for getting work done in a consistent and thoughtful way, both independently and collaboratively
