Senior Executive Assistant (Office of the CEO)

Vancouver, BC

Axiom Zen is one of the fastest-growing and most innovative companies in Canada. Our CEO is a serial entrepreneur with a decade of startup experience in Silicon Valley. He has now relocated to beautiful Vancouver and we are looking for a new Executive Assistant to take us to the next level. Prior to founding Axiom Zen, Roham served with the Rising Tide Fund based in Silicon Valley as a partner focused on seed-stage investments. Here's some more detail on the role:

I am a CEO and I need your help.

I need your meticulous calendar management skills to keep me organized, up-to-date, and efficient with meetings. 

I need your confidentiality when I ask you to review documents that will send shockwaves through industries, or create entirely new ones. 

I need your astounding memory to remember all of the little things that I might forget (like birthdays, flight times, and that my meeting was moved from 3 PM to 4 PM).

I need your persuasive tone to tell my closest contacts that I value their time but can’t respond to their email right away. Most of the time, I will need you to respond on my behalf. 

I need your creative writing skills when I’m at a loss for words, or when I need to be direct, sincere, or humorous. 

I need your appreciation and understanding of the passion and energy I have for the team, and the company. I need you to bear with my crazy ideas and help bring big concepts down to actionable steps. It’s not always easy but it’s gotten us to where we are today. 

I need your relationship management skills to help me nurture my network of VIPs and stay top of mind. Remembering hobbies, a person’s favourite restaurant, or choosing a thoughtful thank you gift that will make their day will make my day. We will need to use a system to keep track of everyone and how we know them. 

I need your resourceful character to be able to hit the ground not running, but sprinting. This means getting up to speed with the latest tech and software that we use, like GitHub, the blockchain, cryptocurrencies, iOS/Mac, and numerous others. 

Most of all, I will need your trust. Trust that I can count on you. Trust that I can share my professional endeavours and aspirations. 

What you can expect:

You will have my support and respect. No matter what. 

You will have a mentor, coach, and leader who will share knowledge and wisdom gained from failing many times but succeeding more. 

You will learn so much about professional deals, building multiple businesses, and how people operate in the world of startups.

You will have exposure to some of the most influential people in technology and my most trusted advisors. The ideas, thoughts, and opinions you’ll hear will provide you with an education that few universities could match.

You will work with some of the most talented designers, product managers, engineers and marketers in the world. Our products have been featured on Apple’s Best of Lists and most recently our blockchain project – CryptoKitties – went viral in a matter of days. 

How to Apply:

Please include your résumé and cover letter with an answer to the following:
