At City Innovate, we’re well aware of the impact government can have on people’s lives. Which is why we won’t rest until every government has access to the modern technologies the private sector takes for granted. The barrier to success isn’t a lack of budget or the will to consider new and/or emerging technologies. No. The barrier here is legacy procurement processes that can be byzantine in complexity. City Innovate makes products to modernize legacy procurement processes and as well as to pioneer greater agility in procurement using something we call a Challenge-Based Approach.
Our clients are Chief Information Officers (CIOs), deputy CIOs, Agency Leaders, and Procurement Officials inside the government. Many are working on the most compelling problems facing the government today - including how to respond to COVID-19, wildfires, and other natural disasters.
We are looking for a Chief of Staff to help support our two co-CEOs on the journey as we grow City Innovate to the next level.
We are looking for someone who is extremely ambitious, curious, and hungry to make a big impact in the lives of our customers (the government officials responsible for changing residents lives through innovation in procurement). You are someone who possesses both a high level of customer empathy and an analytical mindset. You’re known for being a math and data wizard, but you don’t focus on the numbers alone - you know that in order to understand the full picture, you have to talk to users, to dig into the nitty-gritty of our processes, in order to fix and improve our product, services, etc. You are resourceful and aren't afraid to push yourself outside of your comfort zone in order to solve a problem. In this position, you’ll be the right-hand person to the two co-CEOs; they'll be leaning on you heavily to advance various parts of the org to the next level. No job is beneath you, and you know that speed of execution and innovation are key to winning. You hope to wear many hats, and you’ll likely start a company of your own one day.
Qualifications and requirements:
- Startup experience
- Ability to talk to users
- Attention to detail
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills
- Can prioritize across multiple projects
- Excel modeling
- Knowledge of SQL, Python, and possibly R is a plus but not a requirement
