About the Role:
Our President of Product & Business, Kevin Weil, supports Product, Software Engineering, Marketing, Sales, and Impact at Planet. Kevin is seeking a thoughtful, diligent, detail-oriented, and fun Executive Assistant and Business Partner. The role is wide ranging, spanning the basics (calendaring, expenses, flights) all the way through higher level work: briefings for key meetings, attending meetings in Kevin’s place, helping Kevin think through strategic and personnel issues, and developing/mentoring other admins on the team. The ideal person is someone with a strong growth mindset who is eager to build a long-term professional relationship.
Our team of executive operations partners are the critical ties that bind our organization and you would have the opportunity to pair collaboratively with each to ensure the executive team evolves its own team’s culture as you help Kevin maintain a focus on what matters most -- our people, our culture and our long term path to achieving our mission.
