Opportunity

Endeavour has an exciting opportunity for an Executive Administrator (EA) who is passionate about sustainability and eager to get a foot in the door of an innovative company that’s on a journey to transform the world’s infrastructure. The EA works directly with Endeavour’s Founder and reports to Endeavour’s Administrative Manager. This role has a birds-eye view of everything that’s happening in Endeavour’s ecosystem.

Because Endeavour is rapidly scaling a diverse portfolio of next-gen tech companies and managing a wide range of activities, the EA plays an integral role in helping Endeavour’s team remain efficient.

We are looking for someone agile, professional, and comfortable in a dynamic, fluid, and primarily remote environment. The right person must be trustworthy with confidential information, highly organized, self-motivated, an excellent communicator, can think strategically to anticipate executive needs, and works equally as well independently as with a team. The right person should be goal-oriented and eager to learn and grow. The contributions of the EA will have a significant impact on day-to-day activities of the Founder and the Endeavour’s Support Team that are critical to successful management of the Endeavour ecosystem. We would like the Executive Administrator to be on site working side-by-side with the Founder 2-3 days per week and remotely the other business days. The schedule will change from week to week based on the Founder’s travel schedule.
