Office of the CEO

Executive Assistant

South San Francisco, CA

At Plenty, we’re on a mission to give people in local communities everywhere access to the freshest, most amazing tasting produce possible. And to do so in a way that’s better for the planet.

About Role

The people and teams who make up Plenty are at the core of how we do that. We are an ag-tech company looking for a world-class executive assistant to support the Office of the CEO.

This person will have a “front row seat” to all that is happening within the Office of the CEO. Whether it’s executive recruiting, board meetings, the next big company initiative or high-profile external press, this role will help ensure the CEO is always prepared and ready to drive towards the best outcomes for the Company. This role is not only an amazing opportunity, but it is also a lot of work and requires presence in the office 5 days per week. Expectations of this person are very high, so we’re looking for someone who enjoys being “on-call” and ready to execute, even when not in the office.

What You'll Do

  • Manage CEO’s calendar; schedule and coordinate a high volume of meetings with internal and external constituents
  • Keep CEO on-time for meetings; ensure CEO is where he needs to be
  • Book CEO’s travel arrangements and other related logistics
  • Handle meeting logistics and provide meeting support (e.g. reserve rooms, greet guests, ensure A/V equipment is in working order and presentations are properly loaded)
  • Complete and submit expense reports in a timely manner
  • Develop and implement streamlined processes and procedures
  • Assist with special projects; take on additional duties as needed
  • Work closely with other members of the Office of the CEO to ensure key initiatives and/or VIP events are executed flawlessly

What We're Looking For

  • 3-5+ years experience at a hyper growth startup or similar fast-paced environment, particularly in a highly collaborative, cross-functional team setting with multiple internal and external stakeholders
  • Extremely professional and polished; you will be a representative of Plenty and the Office of the CEO
  • Proven track record of partnering effectively with executives/leadership team
  • Ability to see around the corner and anticipate needs or issues before they arise
  • Ability to exercise good judgment, discretion and confidentiality
  • A self-starter with an ability to excel in a dynamic, ever-changing environment
  • Exceptional emotional intelligence and personable
  • Extremely reliable, highly motivated and resourceful
  • “Roll-up your sleeves” attitude -- no job is too big or too small
  • Excellent project management and organizational skills and an incredible ability to multitask
  • Technically savvy and exceptionally skilled in MS Office, Google Calendar, Gmail, and Slack
