The role

We’re looking for a Virtual Assistant to support our founder and our team as we grow They Got Acquired.

The ideal candidate is a strong writer, has excellent organizational skills, and follows through on what they promise.

You should have experience working as a virtual assistant, so you can be proactive about suggesting ways to support us.

You should also be comfortable working with a startup that’s still figuring things out. Our processes will constantly evolve, and we see this as an ongoing opportunity to improve how we work.

We’re looking for 5 hours/week of support as a starting point, with opportunity to increase as the company grows. Compensation is $25/hour.


What we look for

About you

Some of the tasks you might help with:

  • Add completed posts into WordPress
  • Send contracts to sponsors and podcast guests using PandaDoc
  • Coordinate advertising sponsorships, both ones we buy and ones we sell
  • Provide podcast support, including researching upcoming podcast guests, adding timestamps to episode show notes, and formatting transcripts
  • Research and order equipment
  • Make tweaks to our website in WordPress
  • Help draft our weekly newsletter
  • Complete misc. paperwork
  • Build documentation and processes
  • Anything else that comes up that helps our founder grow the business

Tools you should be comfortable using:

  • WordPress
  • Google Docs
  • We also use ClickUp (for task management), Loom (for asynchronous communication), Twist (for team communication, it’s similar to Slack) and PandaDoc (for contracts)

Still keen?

About the company

Our mission at They Got Acquired is to redefine startup success by highlighting “small” exits, especially those by bootstrapped and underrepresented founders.

By joining us in these early days (we launched in February 2022), you’ll get to learn about what it takes to grow a media company from scratch.

Our team is entirely remote. We believe it’s possible to make a meaningful impact and reach millions of readers without working ourselves into the ground. We love this work — and we also enjoy life outside of work.
