About the role

🚀 About Pulley

Pulley's mission is to make it easier for anyone to start a company. We believe that more startups should be created, and that founder-led companies are more successful in the long term. With Pulley’s cap table management tools, companies can better understand and optimize their equity for the long term. Starting a company is hard enough. Managing equity shouldn’t be. 

We’re a high-performing team looking for passionate, execution-focused, self-starters to help us build equity management tools for founders. Pulley is growing quickly with over 1600 customers including unicorns like Clubhouse, Birdies, Coda, and Fast - all within our first year of product launch. Our trajectory is fueled by top investors like Founder's Fund, Stripe, General Catalyst, Caffeinated Capital, 8vc, Elad Gil, among other great angels. All of our growth has been organic, and we’re growing the team to meet the demand.

🌟 Who We're Looking For

Pulley is looking for a chief of staff who will help scale a fast-growing startup from 5 people to 50 by first filling key roles themselves, building processes to help that function scale, and backfilling for themselves by hiring specialists in sales, recruiting, marketing, etc. over time.

We’re a start-up with big plans, and we need a team member who can be our “glue” -- we’re calling the job Chief of Staff, but we really see it as our very own Organizer of the Chaos; Trusted Thought-Partner; Truth-Speaker; and Execution Extraordinaire. If you thrive in a fast-paced start-up environment and hate being told to “stay in your own lane”, then we’re interested in talking with you about this role.

Our Chief of Staff’s responsibilities will cover a wide variety of our growing business areas -- from establishing our initial team operations to lending a hand with customer support, to working on projects with our founder. One of the most exciting parts of our Chief of Staff position is that you’ll be on the front lines of the company’s most critical projects and you’ll have the opportunity to evolve your role and grow along with us. 

🛠 Responsibilities

  •  Keep Pulley running internally by driving standup and internal meetings.&nbsp

  • Drive team momentum and process by managing the weekly sprint process

  • Onboard and support Pulley users by becoming an expert at equity and cap table management. Overtime help build out the onboarding team and process to scale

  • Grow the team by running the recruiting process and pipeline.&nbsp

  • Build team culture by organizing virtual and in-person offsites

  • Drive special projects such as partnerships with law firms and integration partners

🙌 Qualifications & Fit

  • You have strong written communication skills - critical for our remote-first team

  • You have a strong work ethic and willingness to do whatever it takes to deliver results

  • You thrive in bringing structure to highly ambiguous environments

  • You have experience taking initiatives or products from idea to launch

Nice to haves

  • You have 4+ years of work experience. High slope new grads are also encouraged to apply if you're up for the challenge

  • You think analytically and get a kick out of diving into the data and thinking from a first-principles perspective. Engineering or quantitative background preferred, but not required

💚 Benefits

  • Generous health insurance

  • Unlimited paid time off

Our Culture

TL&DR - Pulley is not a good fit for everyone, and that’s OK. <u>This is a bit about the culture of Pulley</u>. We need people who aren’t just interested in working at a startup; we need people who are excited about building a great company. In addition to function-specific skills, here are some traits that enable our team members to thrive:

  • Ego-less Learner -- Every day at Pulley, we are trying things that we’ve never done before - sometimes they work; sometimes they don’t. To be successful here, you need to embrace that feeling of ‘being a beginner’ and be willing to accept feedback in stride. 

  • Less Talk; More Action -- Everyone rolls up our sleeves at Pulley. If your strength is being the ‘idea gal or guy’ but you don’t create your own slides or write your own code, then we are not a great fit.  

  • Prioritize ruthlessly - Our view is that being a <u>10x engineer</u> is not about writing more code; it’s about making the right decision on what to build. We’re hiring for people who can make the right strategic decisions on where to spend their time

We’re also inspired by the culture work done at other companies and plan to develop our own playbook here too. One of the concepts that resonate most with us is the importance of <u>stunning colleagues</u>.

If you like the sound of our environment and you’re passionate about joining a team like the one we’ve described, we'd love to talk!
