Are you an Executive Assistant (EA) ready to take on a new challenge? The Amazon Web Services (AWS) AI team is seeking that exceptionally bright, multi-tasking, and self-motivated Executive Assistant who will provide full administrative support to Directors. Maximum impact, maximum performance, and maximum fun are all part of the job description.
As a support partner to the Directors, this role encompasses everything from managing complex calendars and travel, to maximizing time efficiency and working closely with other EAs within AWS and throughout Amazon. The position will manage critical meetings in a fast-paced environment and continuously seek new opportunities to make the executive and their teams more efficient.
Our ideal EA candidate is organized, innovative, knowledgeable, and forward-thinking when it comes to ensuring smooth operations.

Diplomacy is the rule of thumb in this role. A high level of integrity and discretion in handling confidential information is a must, and professionalism in dealing with executives inside and outside the company is key.

Some flex hours may be required.

* Understand the business priorities and identify process improvements to create efficiency and scale for the Director and their leadership teams.
* Tracking and driving completion of key deliverables and follow-up on outstanding items.
* Successfully complete critical aspects of deliverables with a hands-on approach, including drafting various documents and correspondence, and other tasks that facilitate Director' ability to effectively lead their teams.
* Support annual operational planning process, business planning and performance review cycles.
