Executive Assistant

At Zipline, we design, manufacture, and operate autonomous delivery service at national scale. We develop our own hardware, write our own code, and stress test our product with thousands of flights. We manufacture all of our aircrafts and ground equipment. We hire and train elite local operators to run our distribution centers that deliver lifesaving medicine on a daily basis. We do all this ourselves to ensure that doctors can confidently rely on us to deliver what they need, when they need it, to save their patients. Today we do all of this with just over 100 people at the company. We are growing rapidly to new geographical and product markets. The Executive Assistant is a dual role with equal responsibilities to support our two co-founders: CEO (Keller Rinaudo) and Head of Engineering (Keenan Wyrobek). You will also be working closely with the Chief of Staff and leaders of the Engineering, Manufacturing, Global Operations, and Internal Operations teams. We believe this provides you with a holistic view of the company's top priorities and needs. Your chief responsibility is to ensure that our leaders can ruthlessly prioritize and stay laser focused on where they will have the highest impact to achieve our mission. We are also excited for you to build strong relationships with Zipline partners (including senior government officials around the world and global health and logistics partners such as UPS, Gavi, Gates Foundation) and our dynamic group of team members. We are looking for someone who independently achieve solutions to difficult challenges, biases towards action, shows incredible accuracy and agility, and commits to seeing every project through to its completion. You must thrive in chaos. Communication should be one of your greatest strengths so you can confidently represent Zipline and our executives in your oral and written communication. Role is based in Half Moon Bay HQ. Limited travel required.
