Job Description:

If you are a job seeker with a disability and require a reasonable accommodation to apply for one of our jobs, you will find the contact information to request the appropriate accommodation by visiting the following page: Galvanize helps individuals and companies succeed in today's digital economy. We do that by fostering a community of learners across students, startups, and companies on our campuses. Across our four lines of business, we help transform individuals and organizations into the tech industry:

  • Consumer Education: bootcamps that transform individuals and careers into technology
  • Enterprise Training: bootcamps (and other solutions) that transform large enterprises
  • Military Training: bootcamps (and other solutions) that transform service members and branches
  • Community: co-working spaces that transform entrepreneurs, startups, and companies In early 2020, Galvanize was purchased by Stride (formerly known as K12). Since then, Stride has invested into Galvanize's infrastructure to set the company up for short and long-term success and growth. The addition of this role on the Executive team is to double down on that investment. Galvanize is hiring for a Chief of Staff that will report directly into the Chief Executive Officer. This operational and strategic role will help the CEO, the Executive Team, and the company be more productive and successful. The primary responsibilities of this job will anchor on operations, communications, and the delivery of strategic Initiatives, amongst other things. The desired candidate will be comfortable with ambiguity and the ability to effectively collaborate with all levels of the organization. A high degree of autonomy is required to identify the optimal priorities while rallying individuals and executives around them to get them done. This individual should be able to learn quickly, adapt to new situations and environments, and be thrown into any situation and thrive. As Stride continues to build out and invest in their Career Readiness organization, Galvanize is uniquely positioned to bring its products and services to transform the lives of even more individuals. This candidate should be invested in the future of alternative paths to education and passionate about delivering our services to more individuals to have an even greater impact. Essential Functions:
    • No job is too large or too small; do whatever it takes to make the company more successful
      • Represent Galvanize, the Executive Team, and the CEO at all times
      • Be ready to play multiple roles on behalf of multiple people at multiple levels
      • Partner selflessly across multiple teams; be efficient and considerate of others' time
      • Be willing to raise your hand to take on the job that nobody else wants to (or can) do
      • Accept that you're only successful when other team members are successful
      • Elevate and improve the performance of the team around you
        • Maintain high standards and deliver consistently; show others "what good looks like"
        • Build camaraderie with all levels, from executives to individual contributors
        • Navigate difficult situations elegantly; avoid the blame game and hurt feelings
        • Work across teams to break down barriers, identify things that are broken, and fix them
        • Help identify strong and weak performers naturally; help managers recognize them, too
        • Help drive the company and executive team operations to the next level
          • Drive alignment between Galvanize's vision, mission, strategy, and key initiatives
          • Shape metrics and dashboards to help the Executive Team and company operate

          • Look for opportunities within the teams of Executive Team members; help as needed
          • Protect the Executive Team from requests and tasks that you can handle
          • Help drive, lead, co-lead, partner, delegate, organize, and track key strategic initiatives
            • Convert general ideas of the Executive Team into actionable plans with little intervention
            • Handle issues that you can handle while surfacing issues that need surfaced
            • Drive meetings, organized thinking, and key problem solving sessions, as needed
            • Consistently track the Top X initiatives of the company; measure and report out
            • Transition your way out of each job; find a long-term home once it becomes manageable
            • Craft and drive key communications for the company, Executive Team, and CEO
              • Handle all internal and external communications; get drafts to 90%+ "independently"
              • Take pride in the quality and clarity of communications, specifically those externally facing
              • Tap into the sentiment of the company to constantly know what people need to hear
