  • Account Executive


We believe time is our most precious resource and our mission is to help leaders shift their time from things they have to do, to what will help them reach their most important professional and personal goals.

We match our clients with a highly vetted and trained Philippines-based Executive Assistant. They are exceptional delegation partners who are motivated by impact and custom matched to our clients’ professional and personal needs.

Athena was founded in 2019 by Jonathan Swanson (Co-Founder of Thumbtack; took it to 1k+ employees and $1B in marketplace volume) and is led by our CEO, Robert Hayes (former COO at TaskUs, publicly traded company with 20k+ employees).

Since its formation, Athena has quickly constructed a roster of incredible clients — CEO, founders, investors, and executives from early stage startups to Fortune 100 companies including Airbnb, Meta, Uber, and more. Our roster even includes an NBA GM, a US Governor, and World Series Poker champion!

Athena is now at a crucial inflection point. With a small and mighty sales & onboarding team, we’ve scaled revenue ~7x in the past year (from ~$3M to ~$20MM in ARR) despite prioritizing quality over growth and almost zero dollars spent on marketing.

Athena’s sales & onboarding team is now looking for an Account Executive, who is eager to elevate our sales engine and close + onboard 100s of more exceptional clients as we look to scale from $20MM ARR to $200MM ARR and beyond!
