Executive Assistant to the CEO

Vancouver, BC
We're looking for a seasoned Executive Assistant to help Roham, the CEO, anticipate and triage issues before they arise, act as a liaison, problem solver, and facilitator as the first contact, and help improve the flow and productivity for Roham and the wider team. You’ll play a key role in growing a business through your insights, and you’ll help shape the way a revolutionary new technology is introduced to and adopted by new audiences. Every day, you’ll collaborate with a world-class team in our Vancouver office.

Every one of us shares a common vision: to create the future we want to live in. We need the right people to help us realize that vision.

Our people are our greatest strength: our diverse crew flourishes in a distributed hierarchy where personal autonomy and professional growth are encouraged. We value our culture above else: regardless of where you came from, what you studied, or who you used to work for, your role here will necessitate both a high level of creativity and strategic thinking on complex issues. Everyone here is a founder, and no one fits in a box. We’re all driven by an insatiable thirst for learning and development, and that’s what brings us together.

  • Own the day-to-day workflow for the CEO and work with the team to prioritize and gain a holistic understanding of needs.

  • You demonstrate a strong work ethic with a sense of urgency and ownership and make decisions quickly & effectively using good judgement.
  • We believe in processes and the power of planning, but you will often have to roll with the punches and prioritize the most impactful tasks on the fly: you embrace unexpected projects, and ask for help freely.
  • Exemplare of resourcefulness with a dynamic attitude where you are able to adapt to a VERY fast paced tech startup and business roadmap.
  • Mature at all times but especially under pressure, and ability to anticipate and resolve problems before they need to escalate.
  • You exercise a passion for: acting as a gatekeeper against any waste of time, collecting and driving a list of key decisions that need to be make each day, such as: documents to review, important emails, deadlines, reminders, etc., and taking on random tasks that are important but difficult to complete in between a day fully booked with meetings.
Benefits and perks:
  • Competitive salary and expanded insurance: we offer compensation commensurate with the high level of talent we seek, and your vision, medical, and extended health benefits start on Day 1.
  • Commuter reimbursement: we cover public transport to work and back. If you bike, we set aside $1000/year for bike maintenance.
  • Flexible time off and remote work policy: we have a high standard for impact but we insist on work-life harmony. Minimum of 15 days off every year, with no hard limit.
  • Holistic initiatives and fitness: we have an in-house massage therapist and host yoga classes on site. We’ll reimburse for health-related benefits like gym memberships and personal training.
