The Design for Change Studio in IDEO San Francisco is in search of an Executive Assistant (Leadership Coordinator). This person will be responsible for day-to-day coordination in support of studio leadership, occasionally juggling client workshops and other projects within the Design for Change community.
Our coordinators make the biggest impact through organization and flexibility. They ensure that our leaders and designers are prepared for travel, meetings, and other commitments, and creatively tackle hurdles along the way. This role is the drumbeat of consistency and reliability that keeps the studio moving forward in a coordinated way. We count on them to bring clarity to chaos, whether problem solving with internal stakeholders or ensuring external client needs are being met.
IDEO is a place unlike any other. It’s a place where you can solve complex challenges for our clients or the organization, working alongside thoughtful individuals who lead with curiosity, empathy, and optimism. Sure we work hard, but we also craft moments that allow our people to connect and create together. We encourage our community to bring their whole selves to work, respect the need for work-life balance, and allow for autonomy in the design process and your career.
