Chief of Staff to the CEO

San Francisco, California, United States · Executive Team


At Sudden Coffee, we believe that a great cup of coffee can transform your day. Our mission is to make world-class coffee accessible and affordable for all. In service of that mission, we created the world's first single-origin instant coffee. It tastes like coffee made at a hipster cafe--only possible by combining a deep expertise of coffee, chemical engineering, & industrial engineering. We make everything from our factory in San Francisco!

Sudden Coffee has been featured in Bloomberg, The New York Times, Food & Wine, and more. We are backed by YCombinator, Founder Collective, and CRV.

Sudden Coffee has grown rapidly in the last year, and we are on the path to raise a Series A. We are seeking a Chief of Staff to the CEO to help us take the company to the next level.

In this role, you will wear many hats - business operations, strategy, investor relations, culture & HR.

You’ll be responsible for developing our core business processes, tracking company performance, running a portion of day to day operations, and working closely with the CEO to develop our longer term strategy. You’ll also be responsible for executing on high priority projects.

Our ideal candidate is a highly motivated self-starter who is willing to get their hands dirty in an ambiguous, fast-paced startup environment.
