This role requires a combination of intense focus and flexibility, and a willingness to play an incredibly active part while enjoying behind-the-scenes access to 1 of the top 3 women-led startups in America. This is a critically important role, enabling the CEO and senior leadership to work more effectively with internal and external stakeholders.

As Copia's trusted partner and ‘right-hand person,’ the role demands strong attention to detail, impeccable writing skills, and the hunger and hustle to get shit done right without excuses or ego. You have the ability to ‘create calm from chaos’ and are motivated to help make the team as effective and efficient as possible.

The ideal candidate wants to grow with Copia and is excited to take on this huge responsibility. This position requires a lot of work but is an incredible stepping stone towards a larger impact within and beyond the company. Plus, you get to work with badass people from every industry and event you can think of -- from the Oscars to the Super Bowl. Moreover, you'll have the ability to bring long-lasting change to one of the most important movements, causes, and leaders of our time.

TLDR: *You are ridiculously organized and incredibly efficient. You exude positive vibes. You have a great work ethic and impeccable writing skills.* Major brownie points if you are funny too.

What's the job, really...

- Smoothly running and organizing the CEO’s inbox ('Inbox Zero is always a great ambitious goal!)
- Strategize best approaches and meeting agendas prior to conversations with business leaders & stakeholders
- Work with the team to ensure appropriate follow-up post-meetings and events
- Create and update a Salesforce database of customers, influencers, potential ambassadors, investors, supporters -- proactively develop backgrounders on them & find appropriate ways to engage them
- Monitor progress/achievement of next steps resulting from internal and external meetings
- Work closely with the CEO and senior leadership to be apprised of and prioritize upcoming commitments
- Analyze issues and opportunities that could impact the CEO and the company
- Develop alternative approaches to addressing problems (regardless of their complexity)

What we're looking for...

- Bachelor's Degree or higher
- Minimum of 2 years full-time relevant work experience supporting senior level executives preferably in social enterprises, startups, technology, marketing or related companies
- Exceptional writing skills -- the ability to create short-form, long-form, email form, medium form, etc. content in a professional, engaging and effective manner
- Very strong technical competency, specifically with Apple products (preferred) or Office (e.g., Pages/MS Word, Numbers/Excel, Keynote/Powerpoint), Slack, Gmail, and GCal.
- Ability to prioritize effectively, exhibit critical thinking, and strategically anticipate shifting and competing priorities and needs
- Interest and experience implementing processes and procedures to improve work efficiency and productivity
- Proven ability to exercise sound judgment in a fast-paced, dynamic work environment
- Must demonstrate a positive, helpful demeanor and the hunger and hustle necessary to get things done right at startup speed (aka lightening fast)
- Have a natural gift for sending eloquent, memorable, and mistake-free emails
- Ability to treat highly confidential information with care & discretion


- Ground floor opportunity; shape the direction, efficiency, and culture of the company
- The rare opportunity to change the world such that everyone around you will be using Copia to eliminate food waste. We’re not just another social site, chatbot, or cat photo-sharing app -- we’re moving good food and real assets to people in need and reinventing transportation and logistics globally to eradicate the dumbest problem of our time, hunger.
- Work with the most talented, intelligent, hard-working and kindest co-workers
