EnSoft Corp. is an engineering software company located within the Iowa State University Research Park. Today our products and services are used by over 350 companies worldwide including every major automotive, aerospace, and defense company in North America, Europe, and Asia.

We need someone who is friendly and detail-oriented to help us keep our office running smoothly. Tasks will include routing incoming e-mails and mail to the correct person, maintaining customer records, stocking office supplies, distributing mail, and other business related tasks.

You will learn:

  • about the corporate structure of large multi-national Automobile and Aerospace companies
  • how to use - a popular Customer Relationship Management system
  • about North American, Asian, and European business practices and culture
  • how a small business operates
  • and much more!

Job Skills / Requirements

  • Courteous and caring: Our customers love our products; we want to show them our appreciation too.
  • Detail oriented: We are pretty casual around here except when it comes to accurate records. (It's hard to be courteous and caring when you misspell someone's name)
  • Be able to admit when you goofed: It's ok to make a mistake once in awhile; best to resolve it quickly and move on.
  • Knowledge of a foreign language is a plus, in particular Japanese or German. Japanese nationals are encouraged to apply.

Please send us a resume, unofficial transcript, and a cover letter. The cover letter should tell us about how you have been courteous, caring, and detail oriented in the past; there are no right or wrong answers, but some answers are more interesting than others.
