About Us

Blank Street is a small-format coffee shop with big dreams. Our mission is to reinvent local commerce to better serve our customers, our neighborhoods, and our planet. We're starting with our own specialty coffee brand built on top of next-generation electric street carts and micro kiosks, while powering our customer experience through mobile ordering. Our vision is to empower local businesses around the world with the same operating tools & technology, making their goods more accessible for people to discover and love. We're rapidly expanding our reach throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan and looking for a bright & entrepreneurial Chief of Staff to support our CEO & founding team.

Position Overview

The Chief of Staff’s primary mission is to assist Blank Street's founders in making better and faster decisions. We're looking for someone who is exceptionally intelligent, thoughtful, organized and diligent. Functionally, you are "T-shaped": you have a broad base of knowledge in various startup functions from product to marketing, but primarily a specialist in finance & strategy. That means we are looking for someone who is exceptionally good at gathering information, conducting research, modeling scenarios, analyzing business data, and most importantly synthesizing and communicating all that information very effectively. Expect to be working on a wide array of projects touching every function of our business, while getting unparalleled access to everything and everyone the founders work with. We do not expect the Chief of Staff role to last more than 2-3 years. Throughout this tour of duty, we will be investing as much as possible in your personal growth and ultimately look to best position you for the next step in your career (which we hope involves launching new continents for Blank Street).
