What is Byron Assistants?
We are a B2B SaaS-enabled platform called Byron Assistants. Byron matches businesses and professionals who are looking for help to offload their work with short or long-term tasks with our internal US-based virtual assistants.
We currently are at high 6 digits (USD) in ARR and we’ve grown 20x YoY!
Overview of our two assistant models
Short-term on-demand assistants for quick one-time tasks
Access to a dedicated long-term assistant for continuous and consistent support
Quick background on our assistant certification program and why we acquire great talent
All of our assistants are exclusively US-based, college educated, and have at least 3 years of virtual work experience.
Project manager has full visibility of all live projects on our back-end platform to ensure quality - before any potential issues arise.
Our Terms have a built-in NDA for each of our customers, and each of our assistants has an NDA with Byron Assistants as well to protect all parties.
What are we looking for?
We are looking for a full-time Chief Operator who is ready for a new long-term role and is actively seeking their next challenge; preferably someone who has owned/led their own B2B SaaS or agency business at some point to new levels, and has the drive and sees potential to scale Byron to multiple 7, even 8 figure topline in a couple of years.
Or, are you hungry, have dabbled on a few projects here & there, but really excited to steer the ship and scale Byron to new heights with great upside potential for you? We’d love to talk to you as well!
