Dream Job Posting — Chief Strategy Officer for Well-Funded Start-Up

I love nothing more than connecting a talented person with a dream job. So when a client asked me to help him find someone for a senior position, I jumped at the chance to do some matchmaking.

This is a perfect example of the hidden job market at work. This position isn’t being posted on the job boards. You have to be tapped into the right network to even hear about it. And I know that someone out there in my extended circle is a perfect fit. Could it be you?


About the position: The job is Chief Business and Strategy Officer for a NYC-based technology start-up with venture financing. This company already has a fantastic product and  a significant client base. They are looking for someone to help them chart the company’s future growth and build new partnerships and revenue streams. You would be based in New York City (with some travel required) and report directly to the CEO. The compensation package is very competitive and includes bonus and stock.

Job qualifications:

  • Minimum of seven to ten years of sales and business development and managerial  experience.
  • Significant knowledge regarding financial companies and markets.  Some experience with healthcare would be preferred.
  • Proven performance in gaining new business and growing revenue with Fortune 1000 companies.
  • Visionary thinker with strong presentation skills
