A bit about the role:

Immutable is currently  looking for a Chief of Staff to join to work closely with our CTO & Co-Founder to drive some of the biggest strategic projects at Immutable, across product, engineering and design. This is a rare opportunity to join the leadership team of one of Australia’s fastest growing scale ups and have visibility and influence across all the key decisions made at the company. 

As the right-hand person of our CTO & Co-Founder, one of the first problems you’ll be tasked with is helping scale an incredibly complex product/engineering/design function, which will be crucial to our ambitious global expansion plans.

You’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Help set up new processes and functions within product/engineering/design 
  • Lay the groundwork to establish new functions (e.g. growth, product marketing) and identify the long-term resourcing requirements
  • Help with organisational design, team scaling and cross-function problems, working closely with the functional VPs 
  • Act as a sounding board for key strategic decisions, take high-level strategic direction, produce concrete output for the rest of the team (competitive analysis, product strategy initiatives etc) 
  • Manage leadership operations, improve communication and maximise effectiveness of the executive team in key forums 
  • Lead cross-functional strategic projects and planning processes including OKRs 
  • Help interview and hire top talent into the business
  • We would love you to have:

  • 5 years+ work experience in high performing environments
  • Product strategy experience 
  • High propensity to get things done (focus on execution)
  • Ability to influence key decisions at executive level 
  • Strategic product thinker - proven track record of making important product decisions previously
  • Excellent communication skills and high attention to detail
  • Some extra skills that would be awesome:

  • Previous experience in a scaleup/being a scale-up founder or Chief of Staff at high growth tech scale-up
  • Or a superstar operator at a high growth tech scale-up who wants more exposure to executive leadership decisions (aspirations to become C-level exec)
  • A demonstrated involvement in the blockchain industry or personal interest in crypto/NFTs
  • Some things we can offer you:

  • Competitive Salary and Employee Stock Options: Everyone in our team contributes to the success of our game-changing products, which is why we share all our wins company-wide. As we continue to succeed, stock options and a competitive salary mean you get to enjoy the upside!

  • Ideal office location: On-top of the Apple store on King Street, Sydney, CBD
  • Social events: Fun and regular company events to relax and connect with teammates
  • A bit about us:

    Unique blockchain assets (“NFTs”) have grown in popularity rapidly over the past few months. These unique assets allow people to own anything from in-game items to digital art to music and financial instruments. However, they are highly illiquid: transactions take minutes or hours to confirm, and Etherum can process fewer than 5 NFTs per second for the whole world combined. 

    To solve this problem for ourselves and for others, we have built Immutable X, a next-generation protocol for trading blockchain assets with instant trade confirmation, massive scalability, and no gas fees without compromising user custody. The goal of Immutable X is to help businesses scale their creation and trading of these unique assets (“NFTs”).

    Additional Information:

    Immutable is committed to building and fostering an inclusive, diverse workplace. We believe in incorporating everyone’s perspectives and experiences as this has been a significant driver in our success so far.

    For this reason, we strongly encourage candidates of all backgrounds to get in touch. Even if you don’t meet all the requirements of a job listing, do yourself (and us) a favour by still applying! It’s highly likely you’ll bring something to the workplace that we haven’t thought of yet, and we would love to hear from you.
