We seek an office admin to handle the day-to-day administrative and many key strategic activities for our revenue-generating, fintech start-up. This executive assistant role reports to the founder and involves wearing many hats. We are looking for someone who is comfortable with a wide range of responsibilities, including administrative support for the CEO, creating presentations, organizing documents, scheduling, reporting, maintaining the office space, and undertaking special projects. Mostly, it involves aggressively supporting the substance of the executive team so we can all add value each day. Our ideal candidate is a self-starter with a sense of urgency and who has a passion for creating a productive and engaging office environment for a rapidly growing company.
Note: This role is open to local candidates in the San Francisco Bay Area only.
