The CoS also must be highly motivated, able to work under self-direction and as part of a busy team, highly organized, reliable, able to meet deadlines and have excellent written and verbal communication skills.

  • Supporting CEO on creating key documents (e.g., board communications, internal communications)

  • Prepping the CEO for critical client or prospect meetings




  • Ability to work autonomously, in ambiguous situations with little direction, running towards problems without being asked; solutions-oriented with strong judgment for the right course of action in any given situation.

  • Must be able to react to time-sensitive matters as well as manage complex, longer-term initiatives. Solid personal organizational skills as well as ability to support others in managing time and priorities.

  • The consistent ability to remain flexible, calm under pressure and adaptive to change as priorities shift, acting as a model for the CEO and the organization at large

  • 2-4 years of startup experience is highly preferable, however, at a minimum you should have experience with C-level executives and project management.

  • Proficient in the Google suite of applications


The above is a high-level summary of accountabilities and is not meant to be a comprehensive description of the role. Additional ad-hoc responsibilities will arise which will be considered to form a reasonable part of the role and role requirements may be subject to change from time to time.
