At Gusto, we’re committed to hiring builders who derive joy from our company’s mission: to create a world where work empowers a better life. As a partner to the CEO, you will have far-reaching impact across the organization with a front-row seat to the inner-workings of a high-growth startup. This is a strategic, 1-1 partnership that requires thoughtfulness, confidentiality, and a supreme bias for optimization. Equivalent roles in other companies would be called Executive Business Partner.
We value superb communication skills — verbal and written. The ideal partner can confidently run executive staff meetings and navigate complex calendaring, with an ability to gracefully context-switch between both with ease. As a trusted member of the office of the CEO, you will be a confidante on all topics relating to company operations, prioritization, and feedback. Above all, your approach to the role should be to think like a business-builder. The office of the CEO at Gusto is a three-person team made up of the CEO, EBP, and Chief of Staff. You will be a key stakeholder in developing impactful priorities and high-visibility projects across the office of the CEO.
Here’s what you’ll do day-to-day:
Represent the CEO through phone, email and chat with internal and external stakeholders including investors, business partners, and c-level executives
Plan team off-sites and team-building events
Build cross-functional internal relationships, representing the office of the CEO
Prioritize a complex calendar, and implement systems to help scale the office of the CEO
Plan travel effectively, at least monthly
Act as a key stakeholder on special projects as needed
Here’s what we’re looking for:
Previous administrative experience, ideally supporting a CEO or C-suite member in a 1-1 partnership at high-growth organizations
Exceptional communication skills
Organized and detail-oriented — you must love creating order out of chaos
Experience organizing team events
Intellectual curiosity paired with a high growth-mindset
High EQ and empathy for others
Mastery of Google Apps
Our customers come from all walks of life and so do we. We hire people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. If you share our values and our enthusiasm for small businesses, you will find a home at Gusto.
