TileDB is looking for a highly organized and proactive Executive Assistant to support our CEO, CRO, and the broader executive suite. This role is pivotal for the smooth operation of our fast-paced startup. The ideal candidate will excel in a dynamic environment, managing multiple priorities with a high degree of professionalism and efficiency. In addition to traditional executive support responsibilities, this role will also involve working on special projects that are critical to our company's growth and innovation.


We build the TileDB Cloud Database. TileDB was founded in 2017, after several years of implementation at Intel Labs, to solve use-cases at the Broad Institute and MIT. TileDB has raised over $50 million in funding from high-profile investors, with our most recent funding round ($36 million Series B) announced in Oct. 2023.

We are a remote first, distributed team with employees in the USA, Europe, and South America. Our headquarters are in Cambridge, MA, USA and we have a subsidiary in Athens, Greece. The nature of this role will require some weekly in office time at the Company’s headquarters in Cambridge, MA.


As the first executive assistant hire, you will be fundamental in shaping the role, the relationships and the culture of a brand new team. Our leadership and operations team will be on hand to support you as you onboard and grow your footprint in the Company. As a hyper-growth Company, many of our recent hires are the initial builders of their departments for process, procedures, communication and goals – achieved whilst working in a fast-paced environment – this same team will be there to support you to do the same in your own field of specialization.
