About the role

We are looking for an Executive Assistant in Ho Chi Minh City, who will report directly to our co-founders to execute administrative and operational tasks. Your specific tasks will include but are not limited to: scheduling internal and external events, drafting email communications, Vietnamese to English translation (written and conversational), electronic and in-person outreach to various partners, drafting basic internet research reports, and fielding customer service inquiries. You will also be given operational freedom to execute tasks given directly from the founding team.

At Nook, you will be part of a small, tight-knit, and highly effective team. We are fast, action-biased, and expect all teammates to be self-starters with a spirit for entrepreneurship.


An ideal candidate for the Executive Assistant position hinges on three key qualities: VN/EN mastery, ruthless organizational skills, and adaptability. First, we are looking for candidates with exceptional English to Vietnamese (and vice-versa) language abilities, who can flawlessly translate working documents and act as interpreters when required. By adaptability, we are looking for the ability to tackle new projects and initiatives as the needs of the executive team continually evolve. Finally, an ideal candidate is resourceful in using different tactics to achieve the goals of the team.

  • 3+ years experience in administrative or operational roles
  • Fluency in English and Vietnamese (6.0+ IELTS)
  • Excellent organizational skills and attention to detail
  • Strong interpersonal, verbal and written communication skills
  • Collaborative, responsible, and punctual
  • Resourceful and scrappy problem solver
