Turn your passion for collecting into a career at Collectors Universe. We're the leader in third-party authentication and grading services for high-value collectibles including trading cards (Professional Sports Authenticator), coins (Professional Coin Grading Services), video games (Wata), event tickets, autographs, and memorabilia. If you’re a collectibles enthusiast, or if you want to help us in leading the global expansion of the collectibles market through our values of integrity, teamwork, and innovation, we’d love to hear from you.

As Chief of Staff, you'll work directly for the President of Wata and serve multiple roles across the business and for Wata's executive team. You'll be a trusted and integral part of this growing business. Consider yourself: part "air traffic controller"; part integrator - connecting work streams that would otherwise remain siloed; part communicator - linking the leadership team and the broader organization; and part confidant without an organizational agenda.

  • Serve as a thought partner to executive(s) and help evaluate the value of various projects; help prioritize projects based on value and strategic importance
  • Understand the workings of the organization and guide the team for high project efficiency and better delivery of results
  • Understand the existing operations workflow and organization, and work with appropriate teams to help identify opportunities to find talent internally and externally
  • Serve as a communicator linking the Wata leadership team and the broader organization, including: cross-functional communication with other business unit heads and CoS in Tech, Product, and Operations

Who You Are

  • Clear understanding of the CU ecosystem of businesses and service lines
  • Proven ability to manage projects across diverse teams and multiple concurrent projects
  • Experience in navigating ambiguity and change
  • Ability to manage relationships with tact, candor, and grace
  • Ability to simplify complexity and apply strategic thinking
  • Can anticipate and avert problems in the day-to-day operations
  • Tech-savvy in evolving technologies
  • Comfortable with public speaking and facilitating large group sessions
  • Preference for familiarity or interest in collectibles and the video game industry
