Solar power is the largest source of new energy in the world. Raptor Maps is a fast-growing, venture-backed, MIT-born climate tech startup that is building software to enable the solar energy industry to scale. Parties across the entire solar lifecycle use Raptor Maps’ data model to manage ever growing utility-scale solar portfolios. We are an industry leader with hundreds of customers, including owners, builders, operators, and aerial service providers, across over 45 countries with 200+ million solar panels under management. Our software platform is essential in the fight against climate change.
We are seeking a highly organized and pragmatic Executive Assistant (EA) to provide high-level administrative support including but not limited to managing schedules, travel, and expenses for the Founders.

- Collaborate with senior-level executives to think strategically about meeting flow and agendas, and shape them accordingly.
- Compile necessary reports and/or presentations using Excel, Powerpoint, and other internal tools.
- Proactively anticipate the needs of executives and understand the bigger picture, constantly asking “what should we be considering?”
- Prepare expense reports
- 3+ years administrative support experience within a fast-paced professional environment - tech, private equity, investment banking, or professional services experience a plus
- Strong attention to detail, follow-up and excellent organizational skills
- Strong sense of urgency, adaptability, flexibility and resourcefulness
- Ability to function professionally under pressure, while managing multiple concurrent projects and deadlines
- Proficiency in GSuite, Slack, Excel, and PowerPoint
- Must possess personal tact and good judgment; excellent interpersonal, written and verbal communication skills
- Occasional after-hours work may be required
