VP of Operations Startup Job at “NewCo” (Direct-to-Consumer Startup) in NYC

“NewCo” is a stealth-stage direct-to-consumer startup being incubated within and funded by NYC’s most active and prominent venture fund. Led by a team of seasoned start-up operators and a preeminent authority on the category, “NewCo” is looking to disrupt a fast-growing $82B category that is plagued with consumer frustration and dissatisfaction. Through a simple, elegant, sophisticated and trusted consumer experience, “NewCo” is building a transformational business that will continue to delight consumers for years to come.

As the VP of Operations, you will be the hub that holds the business organization together. Working closely with the CEO, VP of Business Development, Director of Supply Chain and VP of Finance, you’ll make sure we’re delivering an exceptional product experience to our customers while managing healthy margins. You’ll also be the conductor for the behind-the-scenes biz ops – from payroll, to benefits enrollment to office space management.

This is an opportunity to join the founding team of a business with rocket ship potential. But you will need to be up for helping build a business from the ground up. As such, you need to be equal parts thinker and doer. You thrive not only white-boarding strategies and problem solving, but also picking up the phone and getting stuff done.

You want to work hard and be rewarded in kind.

Your Background:

You are highly analytical and have worked in an industry that has developed and refined your analytical acumen. You are detail oriented and live for data. You are both collaborative and autonomous. Ideally you have worked in business operations in a small, growing organization but open to all backgrounds with transferrable skills.

Qualifications:

  • 6+ years professional experience in consulting, banking, at a startup or in a related industry
  • MBA or graduate degree preferred
  • Passion for early stage companies, ideally direct-to-consumer ecommerce
  • Demonstrated knowledge of business operations execution
  • Demonstrated analytical acumen
  • Unflinching hustle

Compensation:

  • Competitive salary / equity package
  • Competitive Benefits
