Office Manager & EA
Retool is a fast way of building internal software. Our goal is to make it easier for engineers to build custom, internal software. Software has transformed industries, but it's expensive to plan, build, and maintain. And that's a shame, because it's so useful! Our goal is to make this large class of software faster, cheaper, and more enjoyable to build. Because then we'll have a lot more of it, and that's a good thing.
We're based in San Francisco. Culturally, we're tightly knit, and enjoy spending time together. If we weren't working at Retool, there's a good chance many of us would be friends anyways. We enjoy spending time with others who are fun to be around, have some sense of humor, and can reason, debate, and make decisions without bitterness.
We're profitable and growing quickly. Our investors include Sequoia Capital, Y Combinator, as well as the founders of Github, Gusto, PagerDuty, Segment and Stripe.
About the role:
Having grown from 10 to nearly 20 people in the last 3 months, it’s time we add someone to our team who is dedicated to making sure our day-to-day administrative tasks are taken care of efficiently, reliably, and properly.

Here’s who we’re looking for:
You are experienced (5-10 years), detailed, and positive. You’re the type of person who thrives on taking care of things the right way the first time. A task comes in and you can figure out how to get it done without having to ask a lot of questions. When you say“I’ll take care of it” we know it’ll be done well.

Setup and maintenance of meeting rooms, ensuring they are always ready for the next meeting to start without delays

Ability to anticipate and respond to the needs of others before they arise
Superb attention to detail, well-organized, with a strong ability to execute
