Do you live and breathe organization, assisting others, and systemization?
Do you want to join a team of heart centric A-Players who are working on growing a leading online academy within the crystal and healing community? If you are organized (to a fault), self-motivated, insanely efficient, and can meet a deadline without batting an eyelash, this may be the best day of your life.
Hibiscus Moon is looking for an efficient and proactive part-time Remote Project Manager Assistant to contribute and support the planning and execution of projects. The perfect candidate will be willing to operate under different company hats, have a wide range of experience, and be organized (almost to a fault).

Hibiscus Moon is on a mission to instill confidence in the crystal community by teaching the science behind how and why crystals work. We have students in 47 countries with over 1970 graduates from our online academy. With a robust curriculum and programs that dive deep into the science behind the healing powers of crystals, we support and engage with our large community across various market channels, continually growing to provide an inclusive, fun, and knowledgeable platform.
