As the Executive Assistant for our Chief Revenue Officer and VP of Finance, you will be responsible for supporting those executives as well their teams.

    • Proactively manage calendars for the executives, ranging from large, internal cross-functional meetings to external events with key members of the design community.
    • Arrange meetings, calls, events, and travel.  Set and test everything out in advance to ensure a seamless experience.
  • Facilitate the executives’ internal and external communications 
    • Screen, prioritize, and (when needed) respond to incoming correspondence with impeccable grammar and tone.
    • Perform admin tasks such as completing expense forms, proofreading, prepping meeting materials.
    • Maintain an intuitive online filing system that enables quick information retrieval.
    • Accurately represent the executives’ point of view when discussing matters with internal employees.
    • Maintain a high degree of professionalism and confidentiality when handling sensitive corporate or personnel matters.
    • Collaborate with their teams and fellow execs to make sure everyone is on the same page, and working towards the same goal(s).
  • Manage internal and external relationships
    • Represent the company with poise and professionalism when interacting with internal/external audiences.
    • Be the point-person during internal and external company events, handling ad hoc issues as they arise.

    • Exercise business judgement and discretion in all contexts with all audiences.
    • Handle special projects and responsibilities, as needed, like taking notes during meetings, or covering other executives’ desks

  • You're smart and dependable: you stay on top of multiple, perpetually-evolving projects with keen detail orientation, and never miss a deadline
  • You exhibit a contagious calm under pressure and exude positivity
  • A track record of success in a cross-functional, fast-paced environment
