The problems you will solve

We need someone who can be trusted with coordinating our professional engagements and managing our calendars, emails, meetings, contacts, etc., to relieve us from administrative work, so we can focus more on the responsibilities that come with leading a company.
Organizational priority management and key stakeholder alignment.
Identifying and prioritizing the list of things we need to do each day such as important emails to follow up, documents we need to review or sign, deadlines we are missing, reminders, etc.
Implementing and maintaining procedures/administrative systems as necessary to ensure smooth daily operations of the company.
Managing our daily calendars as a gatekeeper against any waste of time.
Analyze, evaluate, and implement performance improvement initiatives in close collaboration with top management.
Presenting high-impact insights and findings to the management and leaders in the organization.
Drive the development of models, dashboards, and standard reporting.
Produce and communicate relevant information by transcribing, formatting, inputting, editing, retrieving, copying, and transmitting text, data, and graphics. For example: generating an investor update and creating a job description like this one.
Work collaboratively with leadership and top management team to support high impact and strategic projects.

The impact you will have

This is your career on “adventure mode” as you will directly report to the CEO.
Expect unparalleled immersion in the start-up ecosystem, from strategic to the tactical. The scope (international, spanning data policy/advocacy/compliance work) and caliber (C-level interaction) that this role demands are atypical and filled with growth. This degree of access will be highly valuable to any candidate keen to learn more about Generative AI and Privacy Engineering, and get front-row seats to the shifting technological regulatory landscape.
