Looking for a role that combines executive-level administration, support, strategic acumen, and project management?  Our Executive Business Partner supports our CEO and Chief Customer Officer (CCO), by working to streamline daily administrative tasks, support key initiatives, function as a trusted thought partner, and manage both short and long-term projects. 

At Buildout, we value Team, Customers, Product, Improvement, and Profit. Our efforts speak for themselves - we are one of the few SaaS companies with negative net churn and we’ve been listed in Inc. 5000 as one of the country’s fastest-growing companies, four years in a row.

As our first Executive Business Partner, you will be the supportive force that empowers and enables our CEO and CCO to have maximum impact on the business. On a typical day, you may be managing executive calendars to ensure they are focused on priorities, handling other executive administrative tasks, helping to facilitate a meeting, to managing a special project on behalf of the executives to improve our company’s strategies and operations. You will act as a  point of contact between the executives and our employees, clients, and external partners, ensuring communication is well managed and important information is escalated. 

The ideal person for the job has a passion for operational efficiency and supporting executives to have a big impact, combined with meticulous attention to detail and the ability to act independently and drive positive change. If you thrive in a fast-paced environment, are a persistent problem solver, and are passionate about finding order in what others see as chaos, we would love to hear from you!

What You’ll Bring to Buildout 
  • This is a highly valued and visible role so you should have at least 5+ years of experience providing support to C-Suite executives
  • Intuition to react with an appropriate response to emerging situations or shifting priorities, and comfort multi-tasking, solving problems, and making decisions.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills as you’ll be sending key communications on behalf of the executives. 
  • Enjoy working in a fast-paced, high-growth environment with great time management skills
  • Excellent organizational and planning skills and the ability to think proactively and critically
  • Exceptional calendar management skills and good judgment in managing executive calendars
  • Ability to work independently and with other members of the senior leadership team
  • Discretion and sensitivity especially regarding confidential information
  • Self-starter: developing and managing projects of different sizes to successful completion
  • Proficient in Google Suite and Mac operating systems as well as Microsoft Office. You should also be open to learning new software tools 
  • Giving and receiving feedback as a way to improve working relationships with others is in your DNA
What You’ll Do at Buildout 
  • Increase the impact of the CEO and COO (the executives) by supporting them and becoming a trusted thought partner, helping them to clarify their priorities, develop insights and action plans, and then ensuring their time/projects/calendar/efforts are focused on priority areas
  • Help the executives remain focused on strategic agendas by exercising intellectual curiosity, independent judgment, and initiative to understand the executive’s needs and objectives
  • Track high priority initiatives for the executives to ensure they are moving forward, identify potential obstacles and escalate priorities that require executive focus 
  • Conduct research and analysis to provide strategic insight and support business case development and executive decision making
  • Act as a point of contact between the executives and employees, customers, and external partners
  • Perform administrative tasks for the executive’s with timeliness, composure, and attention to detail: managing calendars and scheduling, organizing and managing recurring meetings, organizing travel, filing expense reports, developing presentations, formatting documents, and executing special projects (which drive business impact)

Of course, what is outlined above is your ideal day-to-day, but things may shift based on business needs and other projects and tasks could be added at the discretion of your manager.

  • Customers: We listen to and support our customers across our teams. We believe that customer service is in every job description and commit to delighting our customers.
  • Product: We live by Q=PUE (n. pooh): Quality = Polish x Understanding x Engineering.  We seek to empathetically Understand the problem and always ask “why.” We iteratively Engineer great solutions. And we patiently Polish the result to get to Buildout Quality.
  • Improvement: We focus on making a significant impact by taking steps to improve ourselves, our company, and the lives of our customers.
