    Executive Assistant

    We're looking for an Executive Assistant to support our leadership team. If you were to join Cogsy today, you'd have the chance to join a fully funded startup at an early stage.

    You're likely a good fit for this position if:

    • Read these values and they resonate with you.
    • You love taking initiative and responsibility.
    • You're great at organizing things, documenting them and have a high level of attention to detail.
    • You can act quickly, are adaptable and always consider the cost-benefit ratio.
    • You have superior communication skills.
    • You are a quick learner, pick up new technologies/tools easily and always looking to automate a manual process.
    • Are self-motivated and feel comfortable working effectively in a 100% remote environment.

    What you'll do:

    • Providing strategic administrative and project management support for the executive.
    • Processing and managing emails and calendars.
    • Scheduling internal and external meetings.
    • Drafting and managing correspondence and communications on behalf of the executive, as appropriate.
    • Setting up eSignature documents and ensure proper completion.
    • Initiating and completing orders and purchases.
    • Booking travel and accommodations and meticulously filing expenses. Extra bonus, you find the best deals.
    • Planning and executing various team events and off-sites.

     NOTE: This is a remote position and you can mostly work from anywhere in Cape Town. The CEO is based in The Winelands (Paarl) and we would prioritise a candidate that is within a 30-minute transit to enable them to support the CEO in-person too.

    What you'll need:

    • Recent experience in administrative support, reporting to one or more executives
    • Experience working with executives in a rapidly growing environment preferably in SaaS or in consulting/agency environments.
    • Highly proficient in Google G-Suite Apps
    • Excellent written and verbal English communication skills
    • BONUS: You've used no-code tools like Zapier, SavvyCal, Missive etc


    • True flexible work: Work whenever and wherever your work best, taking into account some overlap time every day to stay aligned as a team.
    • Trust-based autonomy. You’re the expert in your domain. We trust you to solve challenges the way you feel is best. Count on the rest of the team to support you when you need, but never micromanage you.
    • Diverse team: You’ll be working with a diverse team from a range of countries and backgrounds. Making Cogsy an inclusive workplace is a top priority.
    • Paid for retreats: Once global travel is open again, we'll do week-long team retreats in fun locations.
    • Flexible holiday policy: Take time off whenever you need to recharge or attend to other matters. The team will hold you accountable to taking a minimum amount of time off in any rolling 12-month window.
    • Parental leave for those individuals that plan to discover the joys of having (more) children.
    • Health insurance (powered by Safety Wing) tailored for remote team members, whether you're at home, traveling or being a nomad.
    • Monthly learning and wellness allowance. Buy books, pay for your yoga class or get a Calm subscription for greater mindfulness. We’ll cover whatever helps you develop as an individual and become the best you.
    • We are a life- and family-first company that seeks meaningful experiences outside of work and we endeavor to help our customers do the same.
    • Does this sound like you? Want to be part of a self-motivated, empathetic, nimble team working to build something big? If that sounds like something you want to be part of, we want to hear from you.
