Job Description

  • We are a holding company based in New York, USA that owns and operates multiple internet businesses, all of which are in startup mode, and all of which have employees spread throughout the world, but with a large number in Pakistan.
  • The Chief of Staff will report to the Owner and Chief Executive Officer and you will report to and work closely with him across all businesses.
  • This role is one of deliverables creation, communication, planning, research, analysis, communication and execution.
  • You will essentially be an extension of the Chief Executive Officer -- creating high value business work product at his direction to allow him to leverage his time better.
  • You will get exposure to a wide range of businesses, functions, and tasks.

Tasks:

  • Creating polished documents and deliverables based on directions, notes and preliminary guidance from the CEO. These will include memos, spreadsheets, documents, instruction manuals, and presentations 

  • Performing online research

  • Performing analysis

  • Helping formulate written communications to key partners 

  • Communicate with other employees in the organization on the CEO’s behalf

  • Helping supervise and monitor other employees in the organization on the CEO’s behalf

  • Writing copy for templated outreach emails 

  • Possibly helping with recruiting and growing our team

  • Planning and launching new initiatives within our portfolio companies

  • Various administrative tasks relating to our portfolio companies 

General skills and abilities:

  • Extremely strong written English communication skills with highly polished western grammar. This is essential, as this role involves communication with outside parties who are not based in Pakistan. 

  • Ability to be clear and precise in your thinking and writing. 

  • Attention to detail is crucial.

  • Read and follow directions closely -- pay attention to details
  • Create documents and work product without typos, and minor mistakes
  • Create polished work and deliverables -- ex. with proper, attractive formatting
  • Ability to learn quickly. You will be working in multiple business areas, and we will be using multiple tools, and platforms. There will always be a learning curve in whatever you are doing. If you enjoy learning, this is a great role for you.  

  • Strong research skills and resourcefulness in gathering information

  • Self-organization: you need to be very organized in this role

  • Ability to manage projects and tasks. 

  • Analytical skills. You will be asked to perform analysis of qualitative and quantitative data and make conclusions or recommendations. 

Software and platforms

  • Familiarity with Google Sheets, Google Docs, and Google Slides are crucial

  • Excel and Power point fluency are important

  • In Excel and Google sheets, the ability to organize, manipulate, analyze and draw conclusions from data sets is a huge plus -- using pivot tables, data tables, etc. 

  • Familiarity with and experience with basic internet business infrastructure (ex. Wordpress, database platforms such as Airtable) a big plus 

Personality and Attitude: 

  • You need to be very self-motivated. 

  • Attentiveness and responsiveness. You must be an “on top of it” person, excited to pitch in, help, respond, and engage. 

  • You must be excited to work and be challenged. 

Other Cultural Fit Items: 

  • We are a distributed organization, where everybody works from home. If you are someone who has a strong need to work outside of home, to commute, or to work in an office surrounded by co-workers, then this is not the job for you. If you are someone who needs to work from home or who strongly prefer to work from home, or greatly enjoy the advantages of working from home, then this job is for you. 

  • You are expected to be productive at home.

  • So you need a setup and a work arrangement where you can work and be productive. 

  • You need to be or become familiar with distributed team productivity platforms such as video conferencing (Ex. Google hangouts) and company chat (ex. Glip, which is what we use, which is simlar to Slack) 

  • Because we are a distributed organization, written communication is extremely important -- clear messages in company chat, well and precisely articulated documents, etc. form the backbone of our collaboration.

  • This is something you should be very comfortable with. 

  • This also means you need to be a highly honest and accountable person.

  • Nobody is going to be looking over your shoulder constantly. 

  • You need to be trustworthy as you will be managing confidential organization for the company

Background and Experience: 

  • Business education and/or experience is crucial

  • Undergraduate degree in business or related field (marketing, economics, finance, statistics, math) is extremely helpful, MBA or related advanced degree is a big plus. 

  • Experience and knowledge of other relevant fields for internet businesses is extremely helpful: ex. Digital marketing, Customer Acquisition, Growth Hacking, e-mail marketing, Social Media

Career Path

  • This role is extremely rewarding and fascinating in and of itself

  • However, based on the interest of the employee, after a few years of strong performance in this role, there can be a path to a specific operating roles in one of Dawn Equity’s portfolio companies. 

What happens next:

  • If you are interested please apply with your CV, a writing sample, and any other examples of your work product that you can share (spreadsheets, presentations, documents, etc)

  • After an interview, if your performance is strong, as a next step you will be asked to perform some tasks as trials. Our policy is to pay candidates for work done as trials.
