About The/Studio: The/Studio is on a mission to democratize supply chain. We are an American company with almost 200 staff globally in the United States, China, Philippines and Romania. The company raised an $11M Series A from top Silicon Valley investors, is profitable, and we already have traction on our next big product offering; a marketplace for SMBs to work directly with factories.

About The Chief Of Staff Role: Your job as chief of staff is to ensure the success of the company by making sure our CEO is superhuman. Some of the responsibilities of the Chief of Staff would be helping the CEO hire key executives, analyze data, attend important meetings sometimes on behalf of the CEO, update important dashboards and help with strategy — as well as be in the "trenches" operations-wise to ensure nothing falls through.

In return, you get the ability to learn how to run a venture backed startup with almost 200 employees. You also get to learn about running an international business and deep operations and supply chain experience.

Ideal Candidate: you have an MBA or degree in a highly technical field such as computer science, economics, statistics, engineering, math, etc. You'd have spent time as a co-founder or very early hire in an early- stage startup. If the startup was a success that’s great; but we think a startup failure is equally as valuable if you extracted valuable lessons from it.

Job Description:

  • Interview important candidates and contractors and be a thought partner to the CEO on deciding on each candidate
  • Ensure that the CEO is well prepared for every meeting. Often you will be part of those meetings, taking detailed notes and prepared to help the CEO digest the important takeaways from the meetings. Other times you will attend the meeting on behalf of the CEO
  • Assist the CEO with communication to investors and to be prepared for board meetings
  • Assist the CEO with global communication throughout the organization
  • Work with the CEO on strategies to raise additional capital and even attend fundraising meetings
  • Work with the CEO to build out the long term vision and strategy of The/Studio
  • Help the CEO with communication across the organization
  • Be a reliable stopgap across the company and familiar with internal operations across departments

Skill Requirements:

  • You should be highly analytical
  • Experience working in a technology company
  • Quick learner
  • Strong personality with a willingness to challenge the CEO
