About Stuf

Stuf is a next-generation self-storage startup delivering modern, tech-enabled storage solutions closer to consumers and businesses. We are proud to be the home away from home for people's stuff. Traditional options are out of the way and inconvenient, so we’re building a hyperlocal storage network by monetizing basements, garages, and other underutilized spaces in your neighborhood. We take a hospitality-driven approach to delivering a best-in-class storage experience powered by technology. 

Today, our network spans San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Atlanta, DC, Seattle, and Boston. We have big plans to accelerate our growth and expand our network over the next few years. 

Stuf was recognized by Fast Company as a Most Innovative Company for 2022. We have raised venture funding from Altos Ventures, Allegion Ventures, Wilshire Lane Capital and Harlem Capital, and our founder was named to Inc.'s 2022 Female Founders 100 List. We dream big, communicate openly, show up for our teammates, and do whatever it takes to get it done.

About the role

Stuf is looking for an all-star utility player. You share our passion for reinventing consumer experiences in the “built” world, and your work will redefine the self-storage industry for years to come. Your past work experience allows you to see the forest from the trees, and you have a do-whatever-it-takes attitude in rolling up your sleeves and getting the job done.

You will have a rare opportunity to build and define the business from its early days. You will partner with the CEO to set company strategy and develop and execute an ambitious growth plan. In this role, you will often serve as an extension of the CEO to ensure the business is growing and that the team is motivated. 

As a utility player, you are highly analytical and comfortable with numbers, but you’re also an excellent writer and communicator with high EQ. As Chief of Staff, you will help the CEO design and build the business infrastructure and culture that sees the business scale and expand across geographies and product lines for years to come. 

The ideal candidate moves nimbly and thrives in a fast-paced environment. She / he / they cares about the details but sees the bigger picture and can zoom in and out as needed to serve the company and its key stakeholders.
