CAREERS

We don't push jobs. We work with candidates to understand their career goals.

 

And we try and actually be a resource as they explore want to do: operations, product, investing, or even go back to school.

We have a very specific niche focus: strategic and operational roles at startups.

 

So if one of our companies is a fit, great. Otherwise, we come from similar backgrounds and are happy to generally help and be a resource. We like to think of ourselves as "subsidized career counselors"

No - you will never pay us for it : )

Role descriptions and career paths

Business Operations

Also known as "Biz Ops" is a new term for the elite group of generalists who can jump into any problem with any part of the organization and own it from end-to-end.

Why your startup also needs a Biz Ops team

Growth

At a startup, this has a specific meaning to "growth marketing" at B2C companies. This means deep analytics around user acquisition, retention, and conversion.

Every company needs a growth manager

Strategic Finance

Sometimes this is the not-so-sexy aspect of finance. However, at a startup, it can span fundraising, strategic planning, sales ops, and tracking the health of the business.

Chief of Staff

Often requires a high level of ownership and responsibility within any startup. Direct access to the CEO and executive team provides exposure to the critical operational decisions.

Partnerships

Many companies also call this  "Business Development." You'll interface with senior leaders at other startups or corporate partners to build products, co-brand marketing, and more.
 

Why and when strategic partnerships make sense for a startup

Customer Success

At a series A/B startup, this is NOT account management. You are the voice of the customer for product development and are expected to build the entire commercial side of the business.
