Hippo Education is on a mission to change the way doctors learn. We make fun and effective medical education that keeps clinicians up-to-date and at their best. We are financially strong and continue to grow with new products and a team that’s gone from 3 people in 2011 to more than 30 today. We’re a fun-loving and quick-to-laugh group that works very hard. Some of us work at the main studio in Los Angeles, others work in Santa Barbara,  and others work in the SF Bay Area and beyond. We think this is a great place to work and we’re genuinely proud of the positive impact we have on doctors and their patients.

As we grow, we need to ensure that Hippo continues running smoothly. That’s where you come in. As Hippo’s first Executive Administrator, you will hold a tremendous level of responsibility in the company. You will be responsible for supporting the CEO while also managing a wide range of critical operational aspects of Hippo, such as contracts / agreements, banking, payroll, employee benefits programs, etc. Organizational skills, being good with numbers, and having a compulsive need to fix every problem you come across will be key to your success in this role.
