Chief of Staff


At Arcus, our mission is to advance AI through better data. We believe that data is the ultimate representation of the world and providing ML models with the highest fidelity representations is the most important challenge to solve for AI today. We’re advancing the state of the art in AI by ensuring that every model has the data it needs.

We’re building the comprehensive data platform that enables our users to build intelligent AI applications on their structured and unstructured data. From “chat over your data” to multi-modal, reasoning applications – Arcus scales to the complexity of any intelligent AI application. Arcus manages the data workflows needed to make large-scale, complex data useful for LLMs – from ingesting and indexing the data to providing retrieval and evaluation capabilities – Arcus supports even the most complex queries on the data for AI applications.

We’re extremely well-funded and backed by top tier VCs and angel investors who share our mission and we’re based out of our Flatiron office in NYC.

What You'll Do

As Chief of Staff at Arcus, you’ll work closely with our founders and the rest of the team to accelerate the business and growth of the company. You would be the first business hire in a top-tier technical team and be responsible for owning strategic priorities in the business, scaling our commercials and operations and working closely with our CEO/CTO to define and execute top-level strategy. This role would span across commercial and go-to-market, marketing, business development, product strategy, operations and more; it is likely to change with the growth of the business.

The ideal candidate is highly ambitious and driven and can marry strategic thinking and in-the-trenches, scrappy work. This role is expected to graduate into a leadership role in the company and the ideal candidate would have the potential and drive to head a function of their interest.

Key Responsibilities

  • Support the CEO/CTO across strategic and commercial priorities of the business.
  • Define and execute on a broad range of priorities and initiatives to accelerate the business from go-to-market to product marketing to operations and more.
  • There are few responsibilities outside of the realm of this role (besides for engineering).

Who You Are

  • 2+ years of experience in a top-tier consulting, banking or early-stage technology role.
  • A technical foundation with a degree in computer science, engineering, math or similar.
  • You have a demonstrated track record of excellence, across any field or domain (not necessarily related to the role).
  • Exhibit a strong passion for taking ownership, continuous learning and personal growth, with a willingness and ability to roll up your sleeves and work on the day-to-day priorities of the company.
