Enjoy autonomy and virtual work that offers new challenges.

Meet Zirtual

We are an innovative and fast-growing Virtual Executive Assistant service that provides smart, service-driven "Zirtual Assistants" to busy entrepreneurs, small business owners and professionals. Our community of Zirtual Assistants use their ninja-like organizational skills to assist clients with all kinds of tasks — everything from booking international travel to scheduling a haircut to researching fashion blogs.

Our ZAs are:

  • People looking to make an income while also being home with their kiddos and loved ones.
  • Former members of the corporate rat race who escaped the land of cubicles and micromanagement.
  • Challenge-seekers who enjoy working for a rapidly growing company where no two days are the same.
  • Tech-savvy, service-loving, problem solvers who didn't settle for a typical, boring and utterly unrewarding job.
The best part? Our ZAs all work from home!

What makes our Zirtual Assistants so awesome?

Like administrative super heroes, our ZAs use their high-speed internet connections to make the world a better place for clients every day. With internet research skills more powerful than a locomotive, our ZAs crush difficult problems and organize those who have never been organized before. They schedule appointments with the greatest of ease and save the day with lightning fast travel bookings. No task is too big or too small for our league of extraordinary assistants!

Of course they also need some more practical qualities, too, like solid phone access, a strong knowledge of Google tools and Microsoft Office applications (or the ability to learn them quickly) and availability during regular business hours, Monday-Friday. A sense of humor also wouldn't hurt!

All of our ZAs thrive in high-pressure situations. They juggle multiple clients and are constantly challenged to learn new things.

We are hiring for both full-time and part-time positions.

Want full-time work?
Our full-time ZAs start at $12 per hour and work from 9AM to 6PM each weekday. They also qualify for benefits.

Hiring FAQs

Hiring FAQs

How long does the hiring process take?
The automated task portion of our hiring starts after you submit your first task and can take up to three days, ultimately depending on how fast you complete the assignments. After you complete the process, the hiring team will then begin to evaluate your work. Because of the number of applications we receive, we are unable to give a definitive timeframe for the evaluation portion.

If we do move forward with your application, you will be sent to your first, virtual, face-to-face interview.

Will I hear back after sending in my application?
Because of the high volume of applications we receive, it is difficult for our team to respond to every application that comes through. Rest assured, if your application is a match for what we're looking for, we will absolutely be in touch.

My state is not listed. Will you be hiring in any other states in the future?
We do not have a specific timeframe for opening hiring in other states. Please feel free to check the website periodically to see if our needs have changed.

If I do not make it through the process, will you tell me exactly why I was not moved forward?
Due to the amount of applications our department receives, we are unable to provide specifics to each candidate. If you're interested in applying again in 30 days, we encourage you to read over and become familiar with our job description.

You usually respond quickly to my emails, but it's been over 24 hours and I still haven't received anything! What's going on?
Never fear! Sometimes we get large influxes of candidates which slows our response time. If it has been more than five days and you still have not heard back, please follow up with us by sending an email to

Can I re-apply if I am not moved forward?
Yes, you can definitely re-apply! We just ask that you wait 30 days before doing so.
