What is NewCo?

“NewCo” (short for “New Company”) is a new DTC (direct-to-consumer) start-up venture being incubated by Harry’s.  Over the past year, Harry’s has identified and vetted an exciting opportunity to create a new brand and business in an underserved CPG category.  They are now gearing up to launch and looking to hire a team to build and run the business, revolutionize another category and improve the experience of millions of people.  NewCo is currently in pre-launch stealth mode and will be spun-off as an independent company before the brand launches.

About the role:

The Business Operations and Strategy Manager will be one of the key early-stage members of NewCo and will be responsible for wide-ranging set of operational and strategic activities critical to building and scaling NewCo, which will include commercial strategy (e.g., pricing, innovation roadmap), project management of product launches, consumer insights, business intelligence (e.g., LTV, customer economics), financial modeling, and supporting fundraising – just to name a few.  This is a highly cross-functional role that will need to develop strong relationship and processes within both NewCo and external parties (e.g., contractors, vendors, suppliers). Some domestic and international travel can be expected. You will report to the Head of Product Development of NewCo.

The role is perfect for someone who is yearning to translate their experience to a hands-on operating role, where they will make and own decisions that have real world business impact. And because NewCo is in the pre-launch stage, this role will have direct exposure to all aspects of the business and be part of the evolution of the business from the beginning.
