BuzzFeed, the social news and entertainment company, is seeking a Chief of Staff, reporting directly to the CEO. Working closely with our CEO, the Chief of Staff will help communicate and execute the CEO's special projects and initiatives across many teams including content, creative, technology, and sales.
The ideal candidate must possess strong project management, communication, and leadership skills as well as an excellent ability to communicate at the executive level. She or he must also have the high emotional intelligence and inclusive style needed to influence people across a diverse and growing organization. She or he will also have a record of working operationally without creating unnecessary red tape, and executing tasks that may have a high degree of ambiguity.
Tasks could be as varied as working with the CEO to drive cross-functional internal initiatives or supporting the implementation of external partnerships, to preparation ahead of big presentations or meetings, and assisting with travel and other appointment logistics.
This a demanding role, but one with a lasting impression upon the business. The ideal candidate sees this position as an executive bootcamp of sorts, and is eager to work with (and learn from) executives both in and outside of BuzzFeed. Travel requirements for this role could be as high as 50% of the time, and will primarily be domestic travel.
