Role Overview

500 Global is a venture capital firm investing in the world’s potential. With over 3,000 investments in 80 countries, and feet on the ground in 20 cities globally, we want to see ideas coming from anywhere innovate for people everywhere. This is where you come in. Malaysia has long been a hub of operations, not just for 500 Southeast Asia’s  investing, but also for our global operations. 500 Southeast Asia is an early investor in Grab, Bukalapak, Carousell, and Carsome, amongst 250 more in the region. Your role is to be a support pillar to Malaysia’s continued role in making things happen for entrepreneurs. You’re going to do this by supporting a Managing Partner of this firm, who happens to be based in Malaysia. You’ll be working the same long hours, organizing his tasks, projects, calendars, relationships, all the way to his food, deliveries, shopping, and personal errands. But you are not alone. You are working side by side with a very experienced Office Manager as well as the partner himself to cement this support function for the long haul. This is not a ‘gig’. This is not a ‘job’. This is not a ‘stepping’ stone. This a ‘career home’. This is a lifelong partnership with one individual that dedicates his life to helping thousands of entrepreneurs win. You should only apply if you would like to be in this role for a very, very long time. When you look back decades from now, you’ll see a long list of ideas and dreams that came true, because of each and every task you did so well.

    • Manage and organize a high volume professional and personal calendar across multiple timezones and priorities, schedule and coordinate appointments, meetings and travel as necessary.
