The Team You’ll Work With

We are looking for an Executive Assistant to support Carta’s CEO and Founder and work within the Office of the CEO. This person will report to the Chief of Staff and work closely with our CEO, EA team as well as the broader leadership team at Carta.

Carta’s Office of the CEO is small and wears many hats. We work both autonomously for our Executive - calendaring, meeting and agenda prep, travel and projects - but also collaborate as a team on broader projects such as events and offsites, hiring and best practices.

The Problems You’ll Solve

  • Build trusted business partnerships with Carta’s CEO, their internal stakeholders and other key Cartans across the business
  • Understand how Carta operates and its core products and offerings. Know who is responsible for what, which teams are in which office and who our executives and senior leaders are
  • Proactively and accurately manage heavy calendars (which includes internal and external meetings)
  • Triage and reply to emails, Lattice tasks/Google comments and Slack channels as needed
  • Support in the execution of team meetings, events and offsites; including the coordination of agendas and materials, budgets, logistics, hospitality and more
  • Book travel and process expenses timely; exercise good judgment and adhere our travel and expense policy
  • Approve expenses, travel and time off requests for the CEO’s direct reports
  • Special projects as directed by the Chief of Staff

About You

You are a roll-up-your-sleeves, “get in the weeds,” individual that has experience supporting senior leaders in a fast paced startup environment. You are incredibly detail oriented , a problem solver and have excellent judgment. You know how to find common ground with leadership and peers alike to build relationships. You are professional, discrete and eager to learn.

We believe you will be successful in this role if you:

  • 5+ years of Executive Assistant experience supporting a senior leadership role
  • Are a self starter that can operate independently and collaboratively
  • Have high attention to detail, strong organizational skills and the ability to handle sensitive information
  • Experience at a fast-growing company is a plus
  • Travel required
