Position: Administrative Coordinator
Salary: $20,000-25,000 per year
Type: Full Time
We are a collective of people who are passionate about two things: the web, and helping people. We share a love of tech,
design, and business, and a gung-ho urge to zag when everyone else zigs. All of us care deeply about our work and our
partners in that work. This gutsy, authentic approach makes us a great fit for eCommerce retailers throughout the country.
Gauge has grown steadily since 2007, and we’re launching into a new phase of growth. We take the long-term view, both
in-house and with our clients, so we need someone organized, proactive, and adventurous. If you daydream about what it
could look like to build a web company that team members and clients want to partner with for decades, we would love to
talk with you. We hope you are ready to be a major part of building the culture and creative process here at Gauge.
We are based in a modern office in sunny Savannah, GA, but we have remote team members up and down the East Coast.
This position is open to both on-site and remote candidates.
Gauge is a special place, thanks to the dedicated, ambitious, down-to-earth, and geeky people who make up our team. All
of us truly invest in the clients and team members we work with. Whether we’re in the office launching a new site or
heading to Forsyth park to play some soccer, each day holds some fun. We want people who share our passion for
creativity, business, and technology.
Our clients are people with dreams, families, and most of all, stories. Many have built their businesses from nothing. They
are the salt of the earth and they come from many different industries. We have the pleasure of helping them tell their
stories in a powerful, compelling way. If we do our job right, they’ll get to hire more people, help more of their customers,
and put their kids through college.
We don’t forget that there are people behind the email addresses we see everyday. They are motivated, interesting, and
trusting, and we have built friendships as we’ve done business over the years. These long-term relationships and creative
partnerships add up to make our job incredibly rewarding.
As our Admin Coordinator, you’ll be the chief plate-spinner and office string-puller, handling crucial tasks to keep our team
connected, equipped, and effective. We need a behind-the-scenes superhero capable of juggling matters like renewing
business licenses, managing facilities and resources, planning team events, and keeping the Dr. Pepper stocked. (All
In this role you’ll work closely with our Operations team—the Finance Dept., People Dept., and Leadership—to keep the
Gauge machine running smoothly. Attention to detail, the ability to anticipate needs, and a passion for organization are

out of a social event you planned, this role might be perfect for you.
You’ll also need to understand the value of both stability and flexibility in office administration. The Gauge approach to
process is “Enough structure and no more.” In this position, that means developing and following lightweight processes,
always seeking to improve and simplify without unnecessary bureaucracy and red tape. Think trellis, not skyscraper.
