Forward is on a bold mission to make high quality healthcare available to a billion people across the globe. We’re building the world’s most advanced healthcare platform from the ground up, combining hardware, software and doctors under one roof.
Forward was founded in January 2016 by former executives and engineering leaders from Google and Uber. We are funded by some of the world's best investors and entrepreneurs including Founder's Fund, Khosla Ventures, First Round Capital, Eric Schmidt (Google/Alphabet Chairman), Marc Benioff (Salesforce Founder), Joe Lonsdale (Palantir Founder), and Garrett Camp (Uber co-Founder).
We don’t want to just move dollars around the healthcare industry - we want to rebuild it and fix it. All of it. You’d be a major part of the story behind one of the most ambitious startup attempts of the past decade and you’d work with a team of people who want to use their talents for good.
As an early member of our world class Executive Assistant team, you’ll have a key role in rebuilding our country’s most important and most broken industry from first principles. As an Executive Assistant, you’ll handle a wide range of administrative support tasks, while juggling diverse responsibilities. We’re looking for someone who enjoys streamlining hectic days, who can jump into the chaos, and thrive in a constantly changing environment. We value someone who is a self-starter, incredibly organized, extremely flexible, who can maintain great external and internal relationships, and is an overall strong communicator.
Manage highly complex calendars and scheduling via Google Suite
Plan and coordinate external meetings, which may include cross functional teams, stakeholders, and outside vendors

Ensure managers are prepared for meetings, and have all necessary supplies or tools
Receive and direct external visitors
Assist in document management, compilation, distribution and storage
Compile receipts to file expense reports and track reimbursement status

Impact-Driven - You’re deeply mission-driven, and you think there’s more to life than software that enables puppy ears to be superimposed in photos. (Although we concede those are cute.)
Detail-Oriented - You have exceptional organizational skills and enjoy diving into operational processes.
Scrappy - You’re a hustler who will get your hands dirty and protect your builders at every turn.
A leader - You’re kind, collaborative and humble. Teams want to be in the trenches with you, and to build something great by your side.
Entrepreneurial - You’re a self-starter who loves to own things end-to-end. You don’t ask for permission - you’re too busy making things happen.
