Since March 2020, we’ve educated 5,000+ students on strategic decision-making frameworks through our proprietary “sprint” product delivered by world-class business school professors. Now we're expanding our product to other distinguished professors, authors, and practitioners to deliver elite business strategy education to today's business leaders at a fraction of the cost.

We are seeking a hands-on, execution-focused Chief of Staff who will tackle a range of projects to accelerate our growth. We’re looking for a business athlete who can move between strategy and execution and leverage data and business instinct to get things done.

This is an opportunity for a self-starter who ultimately wants to move into a Biz Ops leadership role to join a fast-growing startup led by proven entrepreneurs. In this role you will initially report directly to the CEO and work closely with our leadership team.

What you’ll do:

- Lead professor outreach; research, identify, pitch, and sign new professors to build Section4 sprints and other products.
- Lead new partner development; research potential partners, screen inbounds, negotiate contracts, nurture relationships, and track financial performance/payback.
- Organize, budget, and set up annual all-company offsites and bi-annual team meetings; this could also include identifying and recommending in-person NYC office space post-Covid.
- Handle all contract negotiations and signing.
- Assess/filter all inbound interest to Section4 and provide recommendations for any next steps (you must be willing/able to lead business development calls).
- Be prepared to take on additional responsibilities to accelerate our growth.

Who you are:

- 4-6 years of experience in management consulting, strategy or business operations in another startup.
- A business athlete who can take on challenges across an organization.
- Data-driven mindset and ability to balance data analysis with business instinct to make strategic recommendations.A self starter who can roll up their sleeves and tackle projects quickly.
- You thrive in an environment with changing priorities and responsibilities; you’re great at prioritizing tasks and managing your time effectively.
- You are nimble and action-oriented with a penchant for over delivering while hitting deadlines.
