Job Description

About Us

Proton.ai is revolutionizing wholesale distribution. Distributors sell nearly every physical good you come across. Key to the economy, they make up over 28% of GDP. But there’s a problem. Selling as a distributor is complicated. Distributors carry hundreds of thousands of SKUs, making it impossible for distributors to know what their customers need. Proton cuts through this complexity with AI. We provide a solution that modernizes distributors' sales efforts. And in doing so, we help distributors better serve their customers.

Our company is in hypergrowth mode. We’ve grown >6X YoY. Needless to say, it’s an exciting time to join the Proton.ai team.

The Role

We’re looking for a smart, scrappy Chief of Staff to partner closely with our CEO and COO on a wide range of projects. This is a new role that has become critical as our company grows and scales.

The Chief of Staff is a unique, high impact role with huge potential growth and lots of mentoring opportunities. You get visibility into every part of our company. You will participate in executive decision making. And you’ll gain a foundational understanding of how to build and scale a startup.

What you’ll do:

  • Sit at the table with our CEO and COO, and contribute to company priorities and strategy

  • Create materials for key internal and external meetings (including Board of Director meetings, company-wide All Hands, etc.)

  • Own and manage a wide range of special projects across functions--projects critical to the company’s success

  • Lead internal reporting and visibility efforts

  • Own and execute various responsibilities across functional areas: For example: own our monthly reporting, and be responsible for contracts for new product offerings

You’ll be a great fit for this role if you:

  • Well-rounded set of project management, communication, and analytical skills

  • Love both variety in your work, and diving into new areas

  • Enjoy owning a wide range of responsibilities at a young startup--you love participating in company-defining strategy decisions, and you don't mind executing on day-to-day tasks that just have to get done

  • Have a “business generalist” background.

  • You’ve previously worked in an operations role at a startup, in management consulting, or in project management

  • Please note: we’d still encourage you to apply even if you don’t have this background!

  • Aspire to be a startup Founder/ CEO/ COO someday

  • If any of the above sounds like you, we’d love for you to apply!

Benefits

This is a full-time remote position: Salary: $98k. Plus equity, health benefits (we pay 99%), 401k and a generous vacation policy.
