Job Description



DESCRIPTION

Amazon is seeking a proactive, customer service obsessed and team-oriented Executive Assistant to support the Mobile Business Development team. This role requires attention to detail, organizational skills, and the ability to meet tight deadlines and juggle multiple critical requests across internal and external stakeholders. The Executive Assistant will act as a seamless extension of the supported Director(s) and will work closely with other Executive Assistants throughout the organization. The candidate will be comfortable in a fast-paced, goal-focused environment, while maintaining great flexibility, a sense of humor and composure.

In addition, the ability to have a high level of integrity and discretion in handling confidential information and professionalism in dealing with senior professionals inside and outside the company is critical. The successful candidate will possess the ability to complete complex tasks quickly with little guidance, react with appropriate urgency to situations that require a quick turnaround, and take effective action without having to know the whole picture. The ideal candidate must be able to work successfully in a team environment and build effective working relationships inside and outside the group.

• Catering and supply orders
• Track and help drive completion of key deliverables and follow up on outstanding items (including meeting notes and action items)
• Management of team space, including moves and reconfigurations
• Work closely with the leadership team, recruiting and other Executive Assistants to provide support to the organization
• Document writing, editing, and readiness
• Ensure accurate archiving of departmental data on appropriate SharePoint sites and Wiki pages
• Prepare reports using Salesforce
• Have fun at work and help others do the same
