The candidate will be highly organized, extremely detail oriented, self-motivated, as well as a demonstrated ability to respond effectively to changing workloads and priorities. A high level of integrity and discretion in handling confidential information, and the ability to manage multiple assignments and people simultaneously is imperative. A positive attitude and a good sense of humor is a must, as is the ability to be flexible and change direction at a moment’s notice. This position will work closely with other Executive Assistants and Administrative Assistants throughout Amazon. The ability to work successfully in a team environment and build effective working relationships inside and outside the group is essential.

• Processing special equipment orders for team
• Planning and coordinating team activities and events
• Tracking and helping to drive completion of key deliverables for team and executives, following up on outstanding items
• Having fun at work and helping others do the same



BASIC QUALIFICATIONS

• Strong written, verbal and interpersonal communication skills
• Advanced knowledge of Microsoft Outlook as well as strong working knowledge of Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and SharePoint
• Experience managing multiple calendars

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS

• A terrific work ethic accompanied by an ever-positive, get-it-done attitude
• Ability to quickly learn organizational structure and the objectives of the team
• Strong organizational and communication skills, team-orientated philosophy, and problem solving skills
• Ability to work in an ambiguous environment
• Ability to take on increased responsibilities as the position advances
• High levels of integrity and discretion in handling confidential information and dealing with professionals inside and outside the company
• Bachelor’s degree
• Ability to prioritize and handle multiple assignments at any given time while maintaining commitment to deadlines
• Sense of humor is highly valued
