Our Culture

Quantum Metric’s number one objective is happy people, diverse and inclusive culture. We’re passionate about empowering our people to become the best version of themselves, offering coaching and training programs designed to accelerate their career in whatever direction they choose.

As a remote-first company, we understand the importance of building an engaged, diverse, and fun place to work. We hold regular company-wide events, seasonal challenges + games, and Quantum Metric supported local outings when Zoom becomes too much. We also have a number of Employee Resource Groups that provide spaces to discuss, share, and reflect on topics that impact us both inside and outside of work – from being new to SaaS or navigating it as a first-time parent, to overcoming the barriers faced as Black, Asian American and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, LGBTQIA or other underrepresented backgrounds.

We are also passionate about the connections we build with our customers. You’ll not only work with some of the world’s most recognized brands, but build lasting relationships.

At Quantum Metric we value all types of experience and education and don’t expect you to meet every qualification for this position. We are most interested in the unique perspective you can bring and your ability to uphold our values of passion, persistence, and integrity.

About the Role

Most C-suite leaders pay little attention to a critical factor that will help determine their effectiveness within their lifetime: the administrative leader that guides their day-to-day operations. The goal of this role is to allow the leader to transition administrative responsibilities entirely to someone who thrives in this role. The leader must remain focused on larger commitments, priorities, and stay focused. Their discipline and momentum are core to their success and will now begin with you. This EA will be encouraged to take on additional responsibilities once a baseline of responsibility, accomplishment, and trust has been earned. Quantum Metric’s Executive Business Partner, with whom this role reports to, is not looking for a temporary fix, but rather a loyal and dedicated partner for many years to come. This is a unique position in that the EBP does want you to stand shoulder to shoulder with her (as opposed to being a subordinate), she understands and deeply respects this role, responsibility, and a high level of expected trust. This position is for a seasoned professional, a confident communicator, a forward-thinking activator, an ULTIMATE achiever, and a process/efficiency expert. This is for the person who loves the details and enjoys exclaiming, “I got this!” to any and every task, regardless of size or scope.

This opportunity is designed for a uniquely disciplined spirit who is unafraid to serve as the trusted advisor, confidant, and partner to the Executive Business Partner and Executive Team. You will be expected to support them in organizing and prioritizing the growing demand of inbound requests, information, and the flow of new opportunities.

Critical Skills

  • Critical Responsibility: The biggest responsibility of the Executive Administrator is allowing the executive to operate within their “desired zones” – within their strengths and rising above the noise towards making their highest impact.

Proactivity and enthusiasm must be a part of everything you do.
  • Time + Calendar Management: Quantum Metric leaders view timeliness as the ultimate trust-building and reinforcing mechanism; nothing makes others feel safer across any relationship than someone who is highly transparent and communicative. They will respond quickly and be on time for commitments at all costs. They are highly organized around a strict calendar system already in place. A significant part of your role will be to maintain this system to maximize their time and place them in their ”desired zones” as often as possible.
