We’re building the more sustainable future of commerce in cities and we’re backed by the best VC partners, including Andreesseen Horowitz, Redpoint, First Round and Construct Capital. We're on a mission to make everyday sustainable choices effortless and solve one of the most consequential problems of our generation by building the first ever zero-waste two-way last-mile logistics network that'll power the future of commerce.

To my future Chief of Staff:

I’m looking for a Chief of Staff to join me on our Leadership Team. As The Rounds navigates the next phase of our company-building journey from Series A to B and beyond, I need an analytical thinker with high EQ to help me focus on what matters most and own select strategic priorities. We’ll sometimes operate in lockstep and sometimes divide & conquer. You will work closely with my Co-Founder to cover for me internally when I'm focused externally and with our People Ops Lead to help optimize the right org strategy to drive higher team performance with more purpose and intent. You will be responsible for creating leverage by both supercharging me and acting on my behalf to facilitate strategic decisions, taking ownership to proactively analyze data, manage key action items and follow up on execution. The company will know that responsibilities that fall to you are guaranteed to get done. The CoS role is a 18 month “tour of duty,” during which you will gain unmatched exposure to every aspect of the business. Based on your interests and career goals, I will personally set you up to crush your next role at The Rounds.
