Executive Assistant

| Greater NYC Area
Hi, we're Brigit! A financial health app for the everyday American. By using cash flow data to automate finances, not only do we help people today, but also empower them to start saving for tomorrow. Brigit analyzes data from billions of individual bank transactions and formulates a deep understanding of each member’s cash-flow mismatches and spending habits. Using that data, we're able to send no-fee predictive advances and help millions of Americans avoid late payment fees, predatory overdraft fees, and interest rates. Our initial product is focused on disrupting the predatory $44 Billion payday loan and overdraft market and our future products will continue to empower and improve the lives of over 100M underserved Americans.

We're looking for an Executive Assistant to support senior leaders across a few functions in our growing NYC office. You will maximize our leaders’ ability to focus on their team's key priorities by coordinating their meetings and ensuring they are prepared for meetings, including compiling briefing documents for meetings, interviews, and events. Additionally, you will help support our growing office needs by running the administration of our office.

  • Work directly with our leaders to support their day-to-day business needs and conserve their time by drafting emails and collecting/analyzing information

  • Manage office activities including our landlord relationship, cleaning/maintenance scheduling, supply ordering, expense reports, furniture and setup, and correspondence with office vendors

An Insider's view of Brigit

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our office is unique. However, it is not simply the walls of the office that make it so. Every Brigiteer helps construct a fantastic workplace. Whether it be a co-founder taking time to teach us how to make an espresso, or collaborating across teams to add that special touch to our app. We see each other not just as coworkers, but as a family.

Customer Experience Specialist

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

You can write anywhere in the office. Walls, desks, windows…..really wherever you come up with an idea, there's always a marker close by to jot your best ideas down. It’s a very collaborative group and we work best when we can express ourselves visually.

Shruti

Growth Strategist

What makes someone successful on your team?

We recognize each other's successes and reward our efforts through encouragement, empowerment, and engagement. Through shared trust and appreciation, we motivate each other to achieve both our individual and team aspirations while maintaining Brigit's mission and core values.
