Chief of Staff

San Francisco, California
Operations
Full Time
Welcome to the Panda Squad!

We are a San Francisco based team that wants to shape the future of visual storytelling and communication using the power of voice. That's why we're making a new state of the art mobile tool that turns the stories you tell into short animated movies. Sound cool? Good! Because we need your help.

Panda listens to the words you say and creates an interactive 3D overlay that can be used in video calls and recordings like none you've seen before. We're sick and tired of the daily popularity contest that plays out on social media and want to give the world a new way to share the stories that matter most.

Panda helps users tell and share stories that can’t be told on other platforms. Stories that are real, relatable, and valuable. How do you tell someone about your breakup or what you were daydreaming about at work with a traditional social media post? Panda wants to makes this possible in a fun and wholly original way.

Our tight-knit and growing team of seven comes from a range of diverse backgrounds and cities including New York, Los Angeles, and Atlanta. Together, we’ve spent over a year making Panda a reality and now we need you for what we believe is the next revolution in communication.

As the Chief of Staff at Panda, you'll work in close collaboration with our CEO to prioritize and plan strategies to achieve company goals, communicate essential information to investors and stakeholders, and generally steer the company ship. This is a distinct opportunity for someone early in their career to learn the ins and outs of the operational wing of a startup.

Within six months, you'll have nearly full autonomy to make key operational decisions that will help shape the future of Panda. Working alongside the CEO, your work will be monumental to keeping the company on track as it grows and evolves at a blazing pace.
