Bobbie is hiring an

Executive Assistant to the COO

About Bobbie

Bobbie is creating a parenting culture of confidence, not comparison. And it starts with how we choose to feed our babies. We crafted our European style infant formula with purposefully sourced, organic ingredients to give parents a product they are proud to feed their babies, direct to their doorstep. Bobbie is proud to be the only US formula that is designed to meet both FDA and EU standards. 

Although 83% of parents turn to formula in the first year of their baby’s life, this is the silent majority that is often shamed for not being able to exclusively breastfeed. Co-founded by two moms and created by a team of mom scientists, nutritionists, pediatricians, and lactation consultants,  the Bobbie team knows first hand that there is no one size fits all for feeding. With Bobbie, we hope you can Bottle Boldly.

The Role

The Executive Assistant role is a unique opportunity to utilize both strong organizational skills and creativity. This role will be a partner to Sarah Hardy, Bobbie's Co-Founder & COO, representing the Bobbie brand internally and externally. This position is perfect for someone who thrives in a fast-paced, high-growth, and nimble (sometimes chaotic!) environment. As the Executive Assistant you will focus on keeping the machine humming, from managing a fully packed COO’s schedule to partnering with the wider leadership team in major company moments. In addition to facilitating the day-to-day support needed in this role, this person will have an opportunity to support Bobbie’s future of work endeavors. This person will be in the drivers seat with the COO in one of the fastest growing start-ups to come out of the pandemic. 

This role is required to be based out of the Bay area. There will be regular travel to Oakland and San Francisco working out of both Sarah’s home office as well as our SF Homebase in Noe Valley, based on her calendar and/or events.

    • Booking monthly travel and expense management
    • Meeting preparation, note taking, and follow-up
  • Assist and/or own content creation for the Co-Founder/COO, including drafting emails, agendas, and presentations.

  • Assist with (along with the opportunity to take on ownership of) our Balance Program, a virtual concierge offering for Bobbie employees.
  • Support other duties and special projects as assigned.

What we would like you have: 

  • 5+ years of experience supporting a dedicated C-level executive required, experience supporting a COO/CEO highly preferred.
  • Previous experience in a high growth environment required.
  • Strong work ethic, proactive, exhibits positivity, professionalism, confidentiality and good judgment. 
  • Incredibly organized and resourceful; able to juggle and multi-task, with an acute attention to detail and follow through.

  • Confidentiality and experience with access to confidential matters and information.
  • Ability to navigate and thrive in ambiguity.
  • Advanced presentation skills (Google Docs, Keynote, Excel) and grasp of current social networking systems.
  • Ability to remain calm and poised under pressure.

You’re inspired by our core values:

  • Be Radical - We are change makers, rule breakers and stigma shakers. We are unapologetically bold and use our megaphone for good.
  • Nurture the Tension - Parenthood is full of healthy tension, and so is building a company. We embrace the unknowns, practice humility and are a culture of learners.
  • Deliver Ounce by Ounce - Our customers have entrusted us to feed their babies. We lose sleep over the details, so they don’t have to.
  • Don’t Assume - We embrace our unique perspectives, withhold judgment, and find beauty in the paths that brought us all to Bobbie. Our strength is celebrating each other and our collective voice.
