Chief of Staff to the CEO

Description

Strategy, Accountability, Ownership. Does this sound like your next great opportunity?

 

Groupon is an experiences marketplace that brings people more ways to get the most out of their city or wherever they may be. By enabling real-time mobile commerce across local businesses, live events and travel destinations, Groupon helps people find and discover experiences––big and small, new and familiar––that make for a full, fun and rewarding life. Groupon helps local businesses grow and strengthen customer relationships––resulting in strong, vibrant communities. Even with thousands of employees spread across multiple continents, we still maintain a culture that inspires innovation, rewards risk-taking and celebrates success.  

We are seeking a Chief of Staff reporting directly to the Chief Executive Officer. This position will act as both an advisor to the CEO and a delegate on his behalf. You will partner closely with the Senior Leadership team to develop, communicate and execute strategic plans across the business. Day-to-day responsibilities are dynamic and will vary greatly based on the candidate & the business needs at the time. This role serves as a potential pipeline to senior operational roles at Groupon.

This role will be based in Las Vegas, Nevada.

We're a "best of both worlds" kind of company. We're big enough to have resources and scale, but small enough that a single person has a surprising amount of autonomy and can make a meaningful impact. We're curious, fun, a little intense, and kind of obsessed with helping local businesses thrive. Does that sound like a great way to grow your career? Let's get into the details: 

 

You'll spend time on the following:

  • Act as thought partner to the CEO on all aspects of corporate strategy

  • Understand and actively participate in full scope of running a global, public company - both internally and externally  

  • Drive the annual business planning process and work intimately with the senior leadership team (STeam) to shape strategic priorities

  • Own content, strategy and agendas for STeam meetings, executive offsites and Board of Directors meetings

  • Build strong relationships with C-Level and S-Team members to influence decision-making across the organization

 

We're excited about you if you have:

  • BA/BS degree or equivalent experience required; MBA strongly preferred

  • 10-12 years of overall work experience; including 1+ years in Management/Strategy Consulting, and 1+ years in Product Management, with a proven track record of success

  • Director-level operating experience (e.g., marketing, product, business development) and online or marketplace experience a plus

  • Strong program management skills to drive multiple initiatives in a changing environment with limited supervision

  • Experience navigating complex / matrixed business organizations and negotiating optimal solutions across cross-functional teams

  • Analytic, strategic and structured thinker with entrepreneurial drive

  • Clear and effective communicator via keyboard and in-person  

  • High integrity, trusted advisor with high EQ and low ego

  • A big plus if you have prior Product Management experience
