What we’re looking For: 

We’re looking for an experienced, extremely detail-oriented administrative professional in a high-visibility role, who will work closely with our CEO.

As the executive assistant, you have a natural inclination for logistics, planning, and details. You thrive under pressure, are dependable, and know when and how to push back. Keeping matters confidential is of utmost importance. In this role, you’ll get hands-on experience and exposure to what it’s like to grow a business by learning from experienced leaders in sales, marketing, finance, product, and engineering.

What you’ll do:

  • Draft internal and external communications on behalf of the CEO; emails, presentations, memos
  • Use detailed knowledge of company operations to prioritize conflicting needs, handle matters with urgency and care, and follow through on projects to successful completion
  • Maintain an efficient flow of information between the CEO and internal/external stakeholders on a wide spectrum of plans and priorities
  • Plan, coordinate, and facilitate professional/personal meetings, functions, and events
  • Review and summarize miscellaneous reports and documents
  • Support an unpredictable, ever-changing set of miscellaneous tasks e.g. expense reports and travel arrangements. 

What will make you a strong fit:

  • 8+ years of experience as an executive assistant or equivalent experience
  • Trustworthy: you practice impeccable discretion when presented with sensitive company, customer, and personal information
  • Owner: you’re self-motivated and have a bias for action, exercising sound judgment when making time-sensitive decisions
  • Problem Solver: you efficiently and proactively find resourceful solutions;  you know when to trust your instincts and when to ask for help
  • Service Oriented: you anticipate problems and prepare primary and alternate solutions as needed in a calm and efficient manner
  • Quick Learner: you have a natural ability learn new systems and be adaptable 
  • Confident Communicator: you have exceptional written and verbal communication skills
  • Focused on Details: you have excellent organizational skills, superior attention to detail, and accuracy
