Manage projects simultaneously, identifying gaps and taking ownership of projects; compiling and preparing material and agendas for team meetings, such as all-hands presentations and events.
Develop an understanding of the team and field requests from members, as well as internal and external contacts, making a point to be available and approachable.
Maintain relationships and strong communication with collaborators across the globe to help support team programs and goals.
5+ years of experience as an EA or in a similar role, with experience building the trust and context necessary to succeed as an executive partner.
Experience working in or with finance, operations, tech, or any relevant sector.
Strong project management skills, used to build processes and programs to benefit your executives and teams.
Experience collaborating with team members from different backgrounds and communication styles, and experience with the challenges of supporting a diverse and growing global team.
Can demonstrate a large capacity and workload, ability to move quickly and context switch, and manage your own bandwidth and boundaries.
