Current job openings

Vice President, Operations

We’re growing! Virtual Gurus is a well-established scale-up providing a Talent-as-a-Service platform to organizations that require fractional help with their administrative functions. We’re proud of what makes us different: a crazy strong social mission to provide fairly-paid opportunities to individuals from historically underrepresented communities.

We’re looking for a shining star to join us in the newly minted role of Vice President, Operations.  

We are seeking a seasoned, hands-on Vice President of Operations who will help us manage continued rapid growth. Reporting to the Chief Operating Officer, you will work closely with the executive team to provide the leadership required to set and achieve goals & objectives for our client success, talent and community teams. 


You’ve already grown a successful customer service or account management team at scale, preferably in a B2B setting. Metrics, KPIs, scoresheets - you’ve been there, done that and loved every minute of it. But you know that there are people at the end of those numbers and you ultimately want them to be successful - whether they’re a client, virtual assistant or one of your own team. 


Essential Duties and Responsibilities:

  • Achieve aggressive retention metrics for both sides of our talent-as-a-service marketplace
  • Directly manage and grow the client success, talent and community teams, working closely with the directors of each team on day-to-day operations
  • Identify areas for continuous improvement and develop systems and processes that track and optimize productivity, cost efficiency, metrics, and performance targets and any potential risks that may contribute to the long-term strategic plans
  • Develop and implement strategies with the client success, talent, and community teams that directly, positively impact client and virtual assistant retention
  • Work with the senior leadership team to translate strategy into actionable goals for performance and growth, helping to implement departmental goal setting, performance management, and annual operations planning
  • Develop budgets to allocate human and financial resources to achieve corporate objectives
  • Coach, mentor and develop team members through training initiatives that reflect full knowledge of the organization and its markets
  • Measure the effectiveness of the team through the creation and implementation of performance management activities and the development of key performance indicators that align with the company's overall annual goals 

How do you know if this role is for you?

  • You understand the two-sided marketplace and live to balance supply and demand
  • You have demonstrated experience managing the day-to-day operations in a high volume and high growth environment with a laser focus on customer satisfaction
  • You’re driven by the ability to make an impact and have worked in high growth startups
  • You are looking for a workplace you can call home, where you can be part of a family as well as a team.
  • You have 15 plus years of progressively high-performance leadership experience with a demonstrated track record of success
  • You’re energized by people and working with them – you’re involved in the business and you understand that in a business like ours, personality is paramount. You’re able to communicate effectively with all groups, from your peers, to staff, to customers
  • Willing to step in – while you need to be operating at an altitude, nothing is beneath you. You are equally okay with putting stuff in the back of your car and driving it somewhere when it’s necessary as you are with “minding the store” when the COO is absent

What’s in it for you?

  • Base salary plus performance bonus 
  • Health benefits
  • Convenient central location in Calgary (possibly remote/hybrid work to start)
  • A team that walks the talk on equity, diversity and inclusion 
  • Fun work atmosphere and regular social events

Virtual Gurus leverages proprietary technology to match organizations with highly skilled Canadian and American virtual assistants. Whether an organization needs a dedicated assistant, special project support, or help with occasional tasks we're your people. 

We look for people who are passionate, not content to let things happen; show empathy towards clients and virtual assistants and not operate from a place of solitude without asking questions; who are diligent in their work, but not controlling; and work to show a high level of competence without trying to achieve perfection.
