Our products – the Uniswap Interface, the Uniswap Mobile App, and the Uniswap Extension – are powered by the Uniswap Protocol.

We are looking for an experienced executive assistant (“EA”) who can provide meticulous administrative support to our COO and CEO in a fast-paced and dynamic environment. The role reports to our COO, but it frequently interacts with the rest of the executive team and other leaders across the company.

The ideal candidate is organized, detail oriented, flexible, diligent, patient, and thorough. They must flawlessly handle the typical tasks of an executive assistant: scheduling meetings, drafting emails, and supporting executives’ day to day operations. The candidate will do so while maintaining a positive attitude, serving as a regular confidant and occasional advisor to the executives, and tactfully supporting the executives as an accountability partner. They will be exposed to sensitive information and situations regularly, and they must handle them with professionalism, discretion, and courtesy.

The EA expands our executives’ ability to lead the company by freeing them of day to day minutia, creating more capacity for deep & impactful work; they are therefore an essential contributor to our success.
