Ziva Meditation seeks a
Social Media Manager/Staff Writer/Operations Assistant (P/T)
Do you want to work for a company whose mission is to help others stress less and accomplish more? Are you a great writer who is intelligent, self motivated and detail oriented? Do you love helping people perform at the top of their personal and professional game?
Ziva is changing the global conversation around meditation. We care deeply about the work that we do and each other. And we’re growing – we’ve grown 50% or more every year since we opened. We are collaborating with some of the most exciting partners in the global wellness space. Ziva would be a great home for you if you love the balance between growing internally and externally. This is a fast-paced, supportive, and creative place to contribute your talents.

Working with a leading expert in meditation, you will need to have a passion for optimal health, and a willingness to take the Ziva course and practice daily meditation. Much of your job will be to support people as they move through their meditation journey, so it is important that you can speak from firsthand experience. This role will grow as the company grows.
This role requires high levels of organization, self-management and accountability. Your days will be varied and include working independently 50% of the time and at the Ziva studio 50% of the time.
