You will work in our People Operations group and be a critical player in providing services that improve the experience of our employees and every person that engages with Rigetti. As your primary responsibility, we’ll be looking for you to prove that you can master the front desk and receptionist functions.

You should constantly be asking yourself ‘How can I make this better?’ no matter what you’re working on. Rigetti’s in hyper-growth mode, and every month, you’ll be challenged to move faster, and more efficiently, all while not sacrificing top-quality customer service.

In addition, one of the greatest benefits of joining a small, growing team is the broad exposure to areas like: Operations, Procurement, Events Management, Facilities, Finance & Accounting, Human Resources, Executive Support and more. You will have the opportunity to gain experience over time in these areas and more as you build and demonstrate the outstanding skills you bring to our company.

You are the right candidate for this role if you consider yourself organized, proactive, energetic, as well as service-oriented, in that you get the greatest fulfillment from helping others.
