ABOUT BITWISE INDUSTRIES
Bitwise Industries creates a bridge between humans from marginalized communities and stories of systemic poverty to skills and resources necessary to access opportunities in the tech industry. By leveraging public-private partnerships, Bitwise provides paid apprenticeships to students to learn tech skills, connects them to meaningful tech opportunities, and builds vibrant buildings in underestimated cities to house their work. By upskilling disenfranchised humans, it empowers them to change their own lives—which ignites and transforms the regional economies of the cities in which Bitwise serves.
Bitwise has raised more than $100M in support of this important work; expanded its model to serve five cities (Fresno, Bakersfield, Merced, Oakland, and Toledo); and built a tech apprenticeship engine that will drive national jobs/economic recovery in 2021.

Bitwise Industries is seeking an entry-level candidate to join our team as an executive assistant.
We ask a lot of people who work for us. This is not a comfortable desk job. A solid fist bump to you if that's your thing, but it's just not mine. We don't have any 9-5 jobs -- we work when there's work to be done (so long as there's balance).
Part-time (20 hrs/wk) positions are very likely to grow into full time in under a year.
Full-time positions range from 30-40 hrs/wk.
These positions are currently a hybrid of remote (working from home) and in- office work.
No degrees or relevant work experience required. We want to know about hustle, integrity, and how you'll have our backs as we have yours. Folks who have a hard time getting in the door elsewhere are welcome to apply.
Folks who love #Fresno, #downtown, and really believe that "No one belongs here more than you," should definitely apply.
Our companies are aggressively inclusive. If that's not your thing, these are not the jobs you seek.
We don't pay anyone less than $20/hr. No matter what position we're talking about.
We have great benefits and such for full-time employees, but that's because we believe in employing the whole human, not just a resume. Start part-time and move to full...that's our jam.
You can be a great candidate even if you don’t fit everything we’ve described above. You can also have important skills we haven’t thought of. If that’s you, don’t hesitate to apply and tell us about yourself! We are committed to diversity and building an equitable and inclusive environment for people of all backgrounds and experiences, and we're taking steps to meet that commitment. We especially encourage members of traditionally underrepresented communities to apply, including women, non-binary, gender nonconforming, trans individuals, people of color, LGBTQIA+ people, veterans, and people with disabilities.
