Karbon is looking for an experienced Chief of Staff to join the Karbon team and play a significant role in driving our next phase of growth.

You will possess strong project management, communication, and leadership skills as well as an excellent ability to communicate at the executive level.

The Chief of Staff will also have a record of working operationally without creating unnecessary red tape, and executing tasks that may have a high degree of ambiguity.

The ideal candidate sees this position as an executive bootcamp of sorts, and is eager to work with (and learn from) executives both in and outside of Karbon.
