Why do we need an Executive Operations Director?

2024 is a critical year for WorkMoney. We’re into our fourth year of operation and dreaming bigger than ever. We’ve experienced exponential team growth and with this very talented team, have been executing complex cross-functional programs. In plain speak, we’re kicking ass, working across silos, thinking big, and we’re just getting started.

Our Founder and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) is poised to take on new challenges and opportunities this year and beyond. She can only do so with a strong executive team and an experienced Executive Operations Director and Executive Coordinator by her side. The right candidate will be a force multiplier, able to ensure our CEO shows up well in every room she’s in. Most importantly, the Executive Operations Director will help preserve and channel the CEO’s time by staying deeply in tune with organizational priorities, and working across teams to proactively surface areas that need the CEO’s urgent attention.

A typical day in the life of WorkMoney’s Executive Operations Director could look like:

  • Operational oversight: Serve as the operational lead in the CEO’s office, overseeing an executive coordinator and orchestrating the rhythm of day-to-day operations
  • Strategic time and priority management: Optimize the CEO’s calendar to align with her priorities. Lead daily stand up and wrap up meetings to manage, prioritize, and execute upon a running task list that runs the gamut from fundraising to thought leadership to organizational strategy
  • Meeting preparation and follow-up: Research, collect, and compose briefing materials, presentations, talking points, etc. for the CEO to ensure she can effectively engage in every meeting. As appropriate, collaborate with others across the organization on preparation. Proactively follow up with others on project status
  • Real time advisor: Serve as a trusted strategic advisor who rapidly responds with keen listening skills, perspective, and decisiveness when unexpected challenges and opportunities arise
  • Special projects: Manage projects of varying scopes and complexity for the CEO – including board and budget management – communicating her priorities and preferences in partnership with other members of the WorkMoney team
  • Team member development: Partner with the executive coordinator to bolster their skills and knowledge and provide opportunities for growth within their scope of responsibility
  • Translator and point of contact: Serve as an internal air traffic controller and referee of communications, requests, and tasks that require CEO’s attention
  • Strong leadership: As a leader in the CEO’s office, model the organizational values and act as a steward of the culture. Demonstrate a high EQ leadership style, fostering high-trust and collaborative working relationships across the organization
