Vested World is seeking to hire a high-performing Chief of Staff to work closely with our investment team, reporting directly to the Managing Directors. From day one, the Chief of Staff will have an immediate impact on our productivity by streamlining strategic initiatives, designing and improving on our internal systems, managing in-house operations, and communicating objectives.
Who We Are Looking For
The ideal candidate will have proven experience in a business management or operations role, with a special focus on executive-level advising and collaboration. Our values, and our mission, will immediately resonate with you, and you have a deep desire for your work to mean more than just a paycheck. Importantly, you must gain energy by organizing, coordinating, and checking-in on the progress of our team toward our overarching goals, and won’t be afraid to object when we aren’t living up to our commitments to each other. You should be familiar with the Objectives and Key Results system for managing these commitments (or similar), have strong project management skills, a sharp attention to detail, and, lastly, should be comfortable working in a small team and taking on special projects across a range of business dimensions (such as operations, human resources, marketing, etc.). You will need to be capable in the realm of accounting, tax, audit and reporting, though you need not be an expert as you will be supported by a capable team of service providers.
What We Offer
You will be joining a fast-paced environment where ideas rule and everyone’s voice is valued and heard. We will support you in bringing your whole self to work, and in balancing your work with an enriching set of experiences outside the office, too. We offer competitive pay (including the potential for yearly bonuses), health benefits, unlimited vacation, and opportunities for continued professional development. Unlike with a larger organization, you will be able to gain invaluable insight and experience into all of the workings of venture capital fund management. While we hope that you stay with us for a long time, if you choose to leave, we will leverage our network to land you in the best spot for the next part of your career. You will be a visible member of our team, and will be acknowledged publicly and privately for the impact you are having. Lastly, your efforts will support our network of entrepreneurs who are changing the world for the better, providing the right candidate with a deep sense of purpose.
