Administrative Assistant

Telescope Software AB is a Sweden based company with main focus on software development. We are currently looking for a responsible, communicative, responsive and self driven Administrative assistant for our test leader and project manager in our office in Davao.

Besides more every day administrative tasks, you will match competence profiles to requirements, write specifications and other texts, and assist the office in Sweden and Davao City with whatever is required. Many times we will just sit down and brain storm, in person or via chat, and your job will be to catch all those ideas and thoughts, and formulate those in an idea draft document.

In other words it is crucial that you are very professional and have a genuine and unique eye for “the final touch” of for example a business communique.

In addition to the above mentioned tasks, you will be required to do more every day administrative tasks required to make the office run smoothly. This could range from paying bills, basic book keeping, buying soft drinks or computers, sweeping off a dirty floor or boil a pot of tea for you colleagues, to arranging hotels or visa extensions and on rare occasions showing flown in guests the sunny side of Davao. Female applicants are preferred.

Your mind set should be that there is no task that you are too good to do, if it makes the enterprise run smoothly. A hungry, flexible, pragmatic, “go getter” attitude is a winning attitude for this position. In other words, if you see something that needs to be done - just do it!

The work will be performed at our small office located in Nova Tierra, Davao City, Philippines. You must live in Davao City or be willing to move to Davao City in order to apply for this position.

So if you feel that you can be the prestigious free and open minded glue between developers, managers, customers and wild ideas, do not hesitate to e-mail us your application in doc, pdf or odt format to You must include references, work samples, requested salary and a photo in your application.

No on the job training is available so you need to be self confident, creative, professional and “ready to go” from day one. If you do not fit the profile, please do not waste your own or our time.

Interviews and language tests will take place in Davao on March 8 - 12, 2011.
