We were recently named a 2022 Forbes America’s Best Startup Employer after being evaluated for employer reputation, employee satisfaction, and growth. Grow with us and complete our ‘mesh’!
We are looking for an experienced Executive Assistant to support our two Founders and their prospective teams. We are looking for an EA who is highly competent, eager to take on new projects, has exceptional communication skills, has strong attention to detail, and is able to manage various priorities in a fast-paced environment.
At Tetrate, we have a strong culture of self-sufficiency; everyone from the top down is a Doer. Many of our executives are not used to having an assistant, so we are looking for someone who understands what great administrative support looks like for the executive as well as their team. We’re looking for someone who can conserve executive’s time by reading, researching, and routing correspondence; drafting letters and documents; collecting and analyzing information, and initiating conversations when needed. Someone who enjoys streamlining hectic days and succeeds in the face of limited resources. We value someone who is highly organized, relentlessly resourceful, “pleasantly pushy”, and loves to get things done!
