Chief of Staff / Founder's Associate (f/m/x)

Job description

Sharpist is on a journey to deliver measurable business outcomes to its global enterprise clients, through a digital people development solution that founds on 1:1 coaching. As Europe's leading solution for people development, Sharpist marries the individual employee's needs for personalized learning with the demand for worldwide scalability of global organizations such as Axel Springer, STRABAG, and Porsche.

To achieve this "personalization at scale" Sharpist bets on unparalleled user engagement. This engagement derives from combining a 1:1 human coaching offer with a digital learning journey that makes personal growth transparent and gamifies the development experience, just like Apple Health or Strava are doing in their particular domains.

As Chief of Staff / Founder's Associate (f/m/x), you are the crucial connection between the executive and leadership team, as well as the whole organization. Acting as an internal CEO, you liaise with investors, employees and key customers to identify and drive key business projects as well as manage the inner focus of the organization.

💙 We are an equal opportunity employer and we encourage you no matter of all ethnic backgrounds, genders, and sexual orientations to apply for this role. 🙂

What you'll do here at Sharpist

Within 1 quarter you will…

  • Learn how a CEO works with full access to all information and build relationships with key stakeholders

  • Organize external meetings with the board, investors and key external stakeholders

  • Start managing internal stakeholders, especially our leadership team to steer the focus of the company and use strategic touchpoints with every Sharpie, such as our Monthly Q&A

Within 1 year you will…

  • Identify prospects (investors and clients) and interact with key stakeholders

  • Run and compile market analyses and take part in business development activities
