Executive Assistant at SendGrid
Denver, CO, US
Our Executive Assistants are what keep us going! Our EAs are folks who anticipate needs and are proactive in addressing. While they keep us focused and on-time, they also keep things light, make us laugh, and thoroughly enjoy their supporting role. They are magicians with calendars and find ways to make our executives more accessible and more productive...a tough combination! They help our busy leaders stay on top of things important to both the business and the team, and are keenly aware of the nuances and dynamics of the leaders and teams they serve. We’re an extremely fast-paced, high-growth organization, so our EAs need to move quickly, be flexible, and adapt. They are people who can tell it like it is, speak up to busy leaders, and are a rock that can be depended on at all times. Could this be you? If so, we’d love to talk with you! You’ll find more about what you’ll do and what’s required below:
