Executive Assistant, Education

at Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (View all jobs)

Redwood City, CA

Founded by Dr. Priscilla Chan and Mark Zuckerberg in 2015, the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative (CZI) is a new kind of philanthropy that’s leveraging technology to help solve some of the world’s toughest challenges – from eradicating disease, to improving education, to reforming the criminal justice system. Across three core Initiative focus areas of Science, Education and Justice and Opportunity,  we’re pairing engineering with grantmaking, impact investing, policy work, and movement building, to help build an inclusive, just and healthy future for everyone.

Our Values

We believe we can help build a future for everyone.

  • We aim to be daring, but humble:  We look for bold ideas — regardless of structure and stage — and help them scale by pairing engineers with subject matter experts to build tools that accelerate the pace of social progress.
  • We want to learn fast, but build for the long-term: We want to iterate fast and help bring new solutions to the table, but we also realize that important breakthroughs often take decades, or even centuries.
  • Stay close to the real problems: We engage directly in the communities we serve because no one understands our society’s challenges like those who live them every day.  

Our success is dependent on building teams that include people from different backgrounds and experiences who can challenge each other's assumptions with fresh perspectives. To that end, we look for a diverse pool of applicants including those from historically marginalized groups — women, people with disabilities, people of color, formerly incarcerated people, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or gender nonconforming, first and second generation immigrants, veterans, and people from different socioeconomic backgrounds.

The Opportunity

As an Executive Assistant for the CZI Education Initiative, you will primarily support the Head of CZI’s Education. You will work in close partnership with the other Executive Assistants  on the Education initiative, as well as Executive Assistants  across CZI. The ideal candidate has excellent interpersonal skills and incredible attention to detail. You should be able to work and learn quickly, and always be one step ahead. You will need to be a masterful problem-solver and an organizational whiz given complex cross-functionality of the team. Experience at a technology company is ideal, but not required.

You will

  • Handle an extensive array of administrative tasks for the Head of the Education Initiative: wrangle hectic calendars and prioritize time, book travel, plan events, expense reporting, etc.
  • Anticipate needs and proactively seek appropriate resources to support your executive and the team
  • Build and develop cross-functional relationships internally and external partners
  • Identify new systems and processes to help drive increased leader and team efficiency, effectiveness and impact
  • Partner with other executive assistants cross-functionally to improve organizational practices and processes
  • Other tasks as requested, including but not limited to event planning and project support work

You have

  • 8+ years of professional experience with related administrative, operations or project management with prior experience supporting technology teams in a fast-paced environment
  • Experience successfully supporting executive-level leaders with wide scopes of responsibility
  • Excellent written, verbal and interpersonal communication with the ability to build positive relationships easily and with authenticity
  • Can easily work with ambiguity and shifting priorities
  • Excellent judgment while handling highly confidential and proprietary matters
  • Agility and flexibility in a fast paced and collaborative environment
  • Strong time management skills with outstanding attention to detail and the ability to multitask and prioritize across projects to meet goals
  • Ability to learn quickly and ask for help when needed
  • Tech savvy, comfortable communicating virtually and learning new office tools (especially Google Apps like Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Spreadsheets and Slack)
  • Passion for our mission and desire to contribute to an innovative organization!
