✍️ Head of Partnership Communications
Remote (US-based) or San Francisco, CA /
Clubhouse is a new type of social product based on voice. It allows people everywhere to talk, tell stories, develop ideas, deepen friendships, and meet interesting new people around the world.
Our early users love the product and we have been featured in publications like The New York Times, Forbes, The Telegraph, TechCrunch, CNBC, and WIRED. Today, we are a small and productive team with a strong background in consumer products. We are well funded, with recent backing from top-tier VCs and many of the best angel investors from Silicon Valley and beyond.
As we open up Clubhouse to the whole world, we are seeking to add a few extraordinary people to our growing team. If you think you would be a good fit, please let us know! 🙏
As the Head of Partnership Communications, you will work closely with sports, media, arts, and brand partners on their Clubhouse efforts. This will require frequent collaboration with our marketing, social, partnerships, and product teams. In addition to liaising with practically every member of our small (but growing) organization, you will manage and coordinate with numerous agency partners in regions around the world. There are no slow days at Clubhouse and you will be challenged to think strategically and act swiftly to help partners and the creators with whom they collaborate to make the most out of their impact on the platform.
In this role, you will report to our Head of Global Communications. During the pandemic, we are working remotely. This role will be open to both local and US-based, remote candidates. We will have an office in San Francisco when we are able to safely reopen our office for those who prefer to work in person.
Who you are
You are driven, open-minded, and able to work with a diverse array of individuals creating in a myriad of genres. You love finding solutions for challenges that have no precedent and are able to provide the essential tactical support to creative-minded partners. You are smart but rooted in the knowledge that we are here to serve and amplify the creators of one of the fastest-growing platforms in the world.
You write good. A strong sense of humor and not taking oneself too seriously is also appreciated.
You have extensive experience working with media in all mediums. You have worked with partners in different media mediums for at least a decade. You delight in quickly writing and obsessively rewriting an announcement, quote or statement. You still get a thrill from working with a partner to plan and execute the perfect campaign. You are a strong communicator and are able to explain complex concepts to a global audience.
You are experienced. You have a decade-plus of experience as a communications executive at a fast-growing company and have a proven record of impact.
You bias towards action. You like to build and ship - favoring practical choices, speed and a respect for sequencing. You focus on the things that matter and push back on things that don’t. You make deadlines for yourself and you move fast.
You’re scrappy and entrepreneurial. You thrive in fast-paced environments and are comfortable with not knowing the answer to something. You are willing to roll up your sleeves no matter what the challenge is.
You take pride in what you do. You care deeply about your work.
You enjoy your work. You love what you do, think about it in your free time, and often find yourself building at strange hours—not because you feel you have to, but because you’re so excited to create something big for the world. Your favorite thing to do is to take on a huge challenge and pull it off.
You care about doing the right thing. You value diversity and go out of your way to ensure others feel welcome. You enjoy hanging out with your teammates, have a low-ego, and make the workplace more fun for everyone.
What you will do
Clubhouse has hundreds of partners creating content, building followings, and exploring new ways to leverage the platform every single day. You will work with these partners to help facilitate connections, conversations, and community building across the globe. You will develop press contact and market-by-market expertise in countries across the globe. You will play an outsized role in helping us build an organization that values and intertwines its own success with that of our creators.
Your work will vary and evolve over time and will cover multiple disciplines. On a given day, you may brief company leaders, coordinate an interview with creators on multiple continents and lead a discussion to help Clubhouse decide which new features the community needs the most.
You’ll grow and improve rapidly. At Clubhouse you’ll be working with an incredible team, who love to learn from and teach each other. You’ll find yourself stretching to new areas, immersed in feedback, challenged by your teammates, and growing your skills on a daily basis.
You’ll be an owner. We believe in hiring people and giving them as much responsibility as they can handle.
You’ll create something meaningful. Social products allow people to connect in ways that were never before possible. When the telephone was invented, it suddenly allowed people to speak with others across the world. Thanks to FaceTime, grandparents everywhere can now watch their grandchildren grow up. At Clubhouse, you’ll be figuring out something entirely new for the world—a positive product that brings people’s voices together for deep and meaningful conversations, creates new relationships, builds empathy across cultures, entertains people, and helps people develop ideas that change the course of their lives.
As an early team member at Clubhouse you will be a critical voice and have significant influence over the direction of the company. We will compensate you well, invest deeply in your development, and ensure this is the single best work experience of your life. If you think you might be a good fit for our team, we’d love to hear from you!
