Executive Assistant



San Francisco, CA, USA
Posted on Thursday, January 11, 2024



We are NFX, a seed stage venture fund based in San Francisco led by five General Partners who’ve started 10 companies that exited for over $10 billion. We have a dynamic team creating inspired content and building software tools for early-stage founders. Our team is based in San Francisco, Israel and Europe.

We are looking for an Executive Assistant to support one of our General Partners, with a preference for someone located in San Francisco.

Who Are You?

You thrive working independently. You will be supporting a General Partner who works across time zones, and you will be taking the lead managing their fast-paced life full of travel and meetings with top founders and investors. You will often be working with them remotely so need to be available during East Coast working hours, and excel at managing your own time to be as efficient as possible.

You can make more hours appear each day. You work magic with schedules. You look at a jam-packed calendar and you see opportunities amidst the chaos. You see the forest for the trees and effortlessly give off an air of serenity no matter the challenge.

Challenges entertain you. We say we need to visit 5 cities across the country in 4 days? You make it happen like it was Coldplay’s last tour.

You’ve got a lot of hustle. No task is outside your wheelhouse - if you don’t know how to do something you’ll figure out how to make it happen. We move fast, and you’ll have no problem keeping up.

For you, life is always on. There’s a blurred line between work and play. You know that sometimes the best work isn’t restricted to 9-5. You go with the flow, you’re flexible, and enjoy the ride.

The core role:

  • Coordinate internal and external meetings, you are an expert at Google Calendar and Zoom
  • Collect and prepare information for presentations and personal tasks; a form we submitted 6 months ago? You’ll know where to find it
  • Coordinate all travel arrangements; taxi, train, airplane all in one day? You make it happen with ease
  • Be available for communication to assist with last minute changes to travel and meetings
  • Work from our beautiful Hayes Valley office location with SF-based NFX team members
  • Available to meet during East Coast morning hours as needed


$90,000-$120,000 annual salary, dependent on experience and geography

Healthcare, dental, vision and retirement benefits

The nitty-gritty stuff.

If you are still reading this .. here’s the deal. You’ll be supporting a General Partner who is a former CEO -- now turned venture capital investor who spends his time in Europe, NYC, and San Francisco. You’ll keep things moving smoothly across time zones, and are quick to respond when urgent needs arise. To make all this look easy: you’re going to need 3 or more years in support roles, a track record of delighting people, your friends trust you with their secrets, and the Force runs strong with you.

If this is you … of course, we want to meet you. Today. Please apply below.
