Greenroads Foundation is seeking a full-time Operations Coordinator with customer service, recordkeeping/clerking experience interested in a supporting role for non-profit program operations. As Operations Coordinator, you will be assigned to complete and deliver specific activities that support the mission and vision of the organization, helping us keep our customers happy, our records compliant and organized, our finances airtight and afloat, and our operations seamless and efficient.

As Operations Coordinator, you have an impeccable eye for detail and numbers. You are positive, creative, methodical, dependable, resourceful, and you are almost absurdly organized. Preparation is your middle name and routines are your game. You are a skilled manufacturer of time and have intense focus on your goals. You pay attention to the details and are a notetaking guru. Everything is easier because of you and nothing is impossible. You are productive and you make other people more productive as your own personal mission. You love helping people and supporting your team. You love keeping the trains running on time (including by not crashing into each other and staying on the right track.) You think on your feet and adapt quickly to changing dynamics. You want the paper trail to be complete and easy to find what you need at all times. Presentations, charts and graphs always exactly match to specifications and look beautiful. Need a memo? No problem, you've got it summed up in this nice bulleted list in your back pocket already. You are patient and a stickler for rules, procedures and best practices (you may even have experience writing them yourself) and you know them backwards and forwards. You take lessons from your mistakes instead of making them again. You measure twice and cut once. You are a MacGyver of meeting logistics and have them nailed down to every last detail. You trust and verify. You triple check that i's and t's are dotted and are committed to quality, so you don't mind working at something until it is great. You have dreams about beautifully organized and intuitive file structure and clean contact records. You hate surprises and are deeply committed to ensuring that financial statements are flawless, with no drama. You are an individual contributor that loves being good at what you do and you learn by doing. 

As an employee of Greenroads, you will become a daily representative of Greenroads and its mission to benefit communities and the environment by recognizing sustainable transportation projects and promoting sustainability education for transportation infrastructure around the world. 

Greenroads is currently an all-telework office due to COVID 19 hiring in the Seattle metro area.
