Job description

Led by a team of ex-Uber, Salesforce, Amazon, Facebook executives and exited founders, our client is looking for a talented Senior Marketing Manager to join them in scaling the “ChatGPT for your people.” Already deploying with some of the world’s largest blue-chip brands, they have received substantial seed funding from four venture capital funds across San Francisco, New York and London. They are backed by selected Unicorn CEO/Founders who have already scaled in a similar space with demonstrated domain specialism and sustained profitability and growth. Their mission is to give everyone a voice at work by leveraging the power of AI & video. They are seeking highly motivated missionaries who believe in democratising the workplace, the need for underrepresented voices to be heard and the potential for a more inclusive world through technology.
They enable their large corporate customers to run the equivalent of a 100,000 person focus group/survey with instant AI summarisation of the key outputs and strategic suggestions generated. Whether you’re a facilities worker or a CEO, your opinion matters - now it can also be heard at the very top, thanks to them. The company is only at the beginning of its journey. This role therefore suits someone excited by the prospect of building and scaling from the earliest stages, which means diving into diverse areas of the business and having a real impact.
The team works out of dedicated offices in West London. However, they prioritise hiring the best people regardless of where they are based and are firm believers in remote work. They are therefore open to people based anywhere near a UK time zone who are comfortable with infrequent and company-expensed travel to London. Likewise, they also offer sponsorship for those who are interested in relocating to London.
The Role
As Chief of Staff, you will be working directly alongside the CEO/Founder across all areas of the business. Your remit will vary frequently, depending on what business priorities call for at different times. Expect to be required to deal with customer engagement or hiring one day to Board and fundraising investor deck preparation the next.
This is a pivotal role that will be considered a part of the Leadership team at the client with unique visibility across all functions. You will be required to align with all business leaders to help strategize and execute across their remits. Attendance in leadership syncs alongside Heads of Engineering, Revenue, Operations will be necessary.
The successful candidate will be expected to act on behalf of the CEO regularly to answer enquiries and guide individual projects/meetings in the CEO’s absence. This is a “swiss army knife” position that requires an extremely capable individual who nevertheless is comfortable with rolling their sleeves up and supporting across a wide range of responsibilities.
Experience Required
Demonstrated success in generalist roles e.g. management consulting, investment banking, startup operations; preference will be given to MBAs and strong academic performers
Ideally you’ve experienced scale before and are comfortable with (or at least very excited and motivated by) fast growth, fast hiring and the world of scaling a startup.
