Imperva is seeking a dynamic Executive Assistant, with a passion for project coordination, who wants to make their mark on a growing organization. The ideal candidate is high energy with strong project management skills, and a proactive, no task is too small, attitude. The Executive Assistant will provide the full spectrum of support to the CRO.
In this role, you are more than a traditional Executive Assistant. You will become a partner to the CRO, the Sales team, and team members from all departments. You will have a chance to assume a wide range of responsibilities - all of which will require ingenuity, innovation, and integrity. Imperva is a fast-paced company, and you will need to be able to quickly adapt to changing priorities, execute on projects without explicit direction, and operate with the utmost confidentiality.
- Own CROs day-to-day schedule - not only scheduling meetings but also taking proactive action to shift meetings as necessary to ensure that the CRO is spending time in the right areas based on current business priorities.
- Partner with the CRO to prepare agendas, presentations, and lead staff meetings, company all hands, and various other meetings.
- Review meeting briefing documents to ensure that the CRO is prepared for all external meetings (partners, customers, vendors).
- Help drive completion of key tasks and projects.
- Lead and provide support on ad hoc strategic projects as needed.
- Identify areas of opportunity for business process improvements and make recommendations and/or establish more efficient and effective processes.
- Plan and coordinate department and company events, including management of all event details from venue bookings to agenda and presentation creation.
- Book domestic and international travel arrangements (air, hotel, ground travel) and create detailed itineraries for CRO travel.
- Be a go-to resource for all internal teams and partners. If someone isn’t sure how to get something done, you know how or you’ll help figure it out!
Skills And Requirements:
- Proven track record of supporting C suite executives in a fast paced environment.
- Ability to understand current business priorities and manage CRO calendar to ensure they are using their time efficiently and effectively.

- Polished written and verbal communication skills and previous experience communicating with internal and external stakeholders on behalf of executives.
- Detail-oriented with excellent organizational skills
- Proactive problem solver with strong critical thinking skills. You’re able to recognize the difference between tasks you can do independently vs when you should align with the executive first.

- Comfortable in a fast-paced technology environment, past start-up experience preferred
- Must be high energy, work with a sense of urgency, and demonstrate flexibility
