Job Description:

Semi-part time assistant needed for startup-like venture.
I require a competent and highly organized individual with exceptional foresight and a high stress tolerance.
I am a demanding individual, with a low tolerance for explaining myself much more than once. My job ranges from dealing with large and small technology companies, to Hollywood producers and actors, to everything in-between.
I am a difficult personality to describe, with a large number of interests and businesses. I actively maintain a video production company, which creates "viral video" for startups. I have a business, with several employees, in the networking space. I work on feature films. I have several podcasts. I am perpetually busy, always interesting and always pushing myself to streamline my work and personal lives.
Think "Steve Jobs meets David Fincher" and you are in the ballpark of my personality.
If you haven't been frightened away yet.
You must be willing and able to:
- Respond quickly and smartly, based on my brand and personality
- Handle a situation without much hand-holding (soon after starting)
- Spend hours on the phone with people who will sometimes bore or irritate you to death
- Spend minutes on the phone with awesome people who you will love dealing with
- Do anything (within reason) to handle/fix/correct a situation
- Do anything (within reason) which needs to be done for the business
You must be able to do the following boring things:
- Coordinating meetings, flights, hotels (infrequently)
- Manage all incoming and outgoing communication (e-mails, letters, etc)
- Work with suppliers for branding (business cards, stickers, etc.)
- Scan and maintain documents (stored on Dropbox)
- Read and write in Apple Pages (no Word users, unless you are willing to learn Pages)
- Use Google Docs
- Read technical information and synthesize it (camera specifications, etc.)
I'll also ask you to:
- Book lunches
- Have lunch
- Brainstorm and be able to write on a whiteboard
- Answer phones
- Call people, for seemingly no reason, to see how they are doing
- Watch videos/movies/etc. a million times and give me your opinion on them
- Serve as a personal driver/valet/messenger/whatever needs to be done
- Make/order/prepare/summon/materialize food when needed
- Hold a camera
The important Stuff
You get a shared desk at a downtown location as part of your compensation (South Park or Union Square). If you have other interests and are trying to build your own business on the side, this could be a great fit.
In other words, I *want* you to be talented, smart and motivated and desire your own business or future. If you become a success in two years, I will both be proud and feel like I hired the right person.
If you've read this far, great. Prove you know your way around technology, as I need you to, and send me a link to a video of you -- shot on a Mac or handheld camera -- telling me why you'd be awesome for this position.
Yes, it's an odd request, but the position isn't traditional and requires you to be able to figure things like this out anyway... so, there you go.
Do not attach the video to an e-mail. Do not send me your resume without the video. If you need a place to put a video, Dropbox is free and you can share the folder. I've said enough.
