Executive Assistant (Remote)

40 hrs p/w
Salary: $40,000 - $60,000

Headroom is bringing the future of work to the present, one task at a time. We offer Remote Executive Assistance to the best and most successful Entrepreneurs & Executives in USA and Europe. Every day, we help founders of the hottest startups and fast growth companies unlock their potential.

Like our members, our Headroom Executive Assistants (EAs) are ambitious and hungry. We never settle for "just ok", we are constantly finding ways to improve, learn, and make a positive impact on the lives of our members. We know better because we work together, thanks to our proven Headroom method and people-oriented culture. We measure our success in accuracy, thoroughness and flexibility and we love to grow with the members we assist.

Our mission is to empower people to unlock their full potential and make an impact. Starting from those who work with us.

At Headroom, we strive for a positive, diverse and supportive culture. We look for people who are curious and committed to growing personally and professionally every single day. We welcome employees with diverse and neurodiverse backgrounds and from underrepresented groups. As a remote-first company, we offer career paths that are accessible to people who have visible and/or non-visible mental and physical impairment and conditions.

We're also working to break the stigma and gender bias around administrative roles, which should not be "a woman's job". That's why we strongly encourage you to apply for an EA role no matter your gender identity: after all, our members come from all walks of life and so do our Executive Assistants. And that’s our biggest strength!
