Chief of Staff to the CEO

Webflow is a fast-growing, mission-driven startup leading the emerging no-code industry. With over 100,000 paying customers, we’ve built a sustainable business to empower everyone to create software without having to learn to code. We’re looking for an experienced Chief of Staff to support Webflow’s CEO, Vlad Magdalin, during our next phase of rapid growth.

As Chief of Staff, you will be a senior-level individual contributor and member of the executive team. You will work closely with Webflow’s talented and diverse executive leadership team to ensure all business functions work together effectively to deliver on Webflow’s key strategic objectives. This is a rare opportunity for a goal-oriented and people-centric individual to shape the future of a leading technology company.
