The Challenge Ahead:
Reporting to the VP/GM for Battlefield Central Technology, the Admin Assistant will proactively work across the Battlefield organization on several levels to understand the Battlefield Central Technology Sr. Leadership requirements and to act on appropriate deliverable items.
An Admin Assistant will act as a partner to a triad of Sr. Leaders: a technical leader, a development leader, and a production leader who also reports to the VP/GM of Battlefield Central Technology. The Sr. Leadership triad spans a nine-hour time difference, from Stockholm to Seattle, with a critically important, and limited, two- to three-hour per day shared calendar window. An Admin Assistant will focus efforts to manage this shared calendar window to ensure each day is scheduled appropriately, while managing travel, team meetings, and list of every evolving priorities.
