About the role

GlossGenius is seeking a highly motivated Executive Assistant to work directly with the CEO so she is able to focus on the most important projects for growing our business. You won't just execute on scheduling, you'll help spot inefficiencies in how the Office of the CEO operates and implement processes and systems to fix them. You'll be a key point of contact for internal and external stakeholders. You'll get your hands dirty in a lot of different areas of a quickly scaling business.

This role is expected to be in the New York office on an as needed basis but on average two times per week.

What You’ll Do

  • Full calendar and scheduling support for GlossGenius' CEO, including internal and external meetings. You will build and follow strong calendar prioritization principles to help determine the most efficient use of time.
  • Occasional personal scheduling requests such as appointment and reservation scheduling, as well as travel booking.
  • Taking notes and tracking to-dos, both from meetings and requests that come in via email and Slack,
  • Helping ensure executives' time spend is aligned with company priorities.
  • Planning company events and managing high priority meetings, including board meetings.
  • Office management tasks, including coordinating in-office events, managing catering, ordering supplies, and liaising with relevant contractors and stakeholders.

What We’re Looking for

  • You have 5+ years of experience supporting senior executive leaders; including some startup experience, and a bachelor's degree.
  • You are highly organized and detail-oriented — you don't just care about the little things, you obsess over them. You notice when something isn't quite right and you take initiative to fix it.
  • You love making someone's world run smoothly.
  • You're a professional, collaborative, and effective communicator, both verbally and in writing.
  • You're an exceptional owner — you see a problem, you solve it.
  • You love working with people! You have high EQ and can balance holding people accountable while maintaining a good rapport with them. You're comfortable standing up to senior leaders to protect your executive's time.
  • You thrive in ambiguous, fast-paced environments. You make order out of chaos.
  • You have excellent professional discretion and are comfortable handling sensitive and confidential information.
