10up is looking for an Executive Assistant comfortable with a fast paced and distributed (remote) environment, to support the President & Founder in a timely, independent, flexible, confidential, and positive manner.
This position is available for a Part-Time or a Full-Time schedule. We are currently only accepting applications for candidates in the Greater Sacramento area. Closer to Roseville, CA is preferred.
The Executive Assistant’s primary duties include supporting the President with scheduling and logistics, review of business documents and agreements, recording and organizing notes, preparing written communication, review and follow up on corporate “snail mail,” and various personal and business errands and administrative tasks.
The Executive Assistant must be comfortable with an evolving role that requires autonomy and some ambiguity. As a growing business, the nature of needed support will likely change as the company and executive priorities shift. An adjustment period and shared learning curve is expected, requiring creativity and thoughtfulness. Candidates dependent on thorough lists of detailed instructions and repetitive tasks are unlikely to succeed.
A successful candidate must be proactive and reliable, with superior communication and critical thinking skills, comfortable with casual and fast-paced communication (e.g. text message), and acting on assignments with limited direction. The ideal candidate has experience in an administrative or operational business role, experience working remotely, and is familiar with modern online collaboration tools such as Google Suite, Slack, and Zoom (to name a few). An active interest in seeking digital tools and solutions to streamline collaboration and workflow is a plus.
The Executive Assistant will also be required to visit and co-work with the President, in person, on an as-needed schedule, which is likely to be more regular in the first month in the position. As the President works from a home office, the Executive Assistant must be comfortable visiting and sometimes working from the President’s home. The President will provide a quiet, private working space, as needed.
Ultimately, the Executive Assistant must be able to identify and address the needs of the President, and perform administrative tasks to ensure our company’s workflow runs smoothly.
As a growing business, the ideal Assistant who executes the job with excellence will have opportunities to grow and seek other opportunities and advancement inside of the business. Exploration of other tracks and avenues for contribution can begin within 1 year, but the right candidate is prepared to perform at least 2 years in the Assistant capacity.
