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.


Send us a snappy email (careers@thevirtualgurus.com), letting us know why you’re interested, why you’d be awesome for the role and a general guideline of salary expectations. We’ll ask for your resume if we’d like to move forward with an interview.
