Office Administrator (Oakland, CA)

You are seeking to support a mission-based organization that has a positive impact on your community and the environment. You have a passion for active living, whether through weekend hikes, commuting by bike, or exploring the built environments that surround us. You have at least four years of experience in a professional environment and are looking for more ownership of your day-to-day tasks and projects. You relish interacting with staff at all levels and making decisions in a fast-paced environment—sometimes under pressure, remaining flexible, proactive, resourceful, and efficient, with a high level of professionalism and confidentiality. You seek to be valued for your contributions to the greater whole.

As the Office Administrator/Office Manager at Alta Planning + Design, you will work closely with the Regional Operations Manager and play a key role supporting our small and dynamic Oakland office as well as supporting regional initiatives.
