Now Hiring - Receptionist

Posted by Jerri Barrett, VP of Outreach on January 13, 2015 | SRF Outreach


SENS Research Foundation is looking to hire a full-time receptionist beginning as soon as possible. We are a small, non-profit research foundation located in Mountain View, CA.

The job is 40 hours per week, with fully covered health insurance and a 401(k) plan offered after the 90-day introductory period. The ideal candidate would have 1+ years of experience in both an administrative role, as well as in the non-profit space.  We’d also prefer the candidate to have some prior experience with laboratory operations and accounting. A high school degree is mandatory for this position, as is a valid USA driver’s license. We are happy to train on-site for a candidate that is quick to learn and highly motivated but may be lacking in the requisite experience.
