Company Overview

May Mobility is transforming transportation by developing and deploying autonomous shuttles that get people where they need to go-- safely, easily, and with a lot more fun. Our unique technology for self-driving shuttles has enabled us to commercially operate in major cities across the United States and in Japan, transporting everyday people and solving their real transportation problems. We are unique in the self-driving space in terms of our passion for solving real problems in the market, building a strong business, and delivering great experiences to our riders.

An Invitation from our CEO

I’m Ed, the CEO at May. I’m looking for a Chief of Staff who can be my day-to-day lieutenant and partner. I’m looking for someone who can help me allocate my time to the most valuable work possible, by doing a few key things:

  1. By taking some things off my plate entirely (e.g. running our regular KPI meetings, taking point on the preparation of presentations (including project management aspects when these involve input from the broader leadership team);
  2. By helping me be incredibly well-prepared as I go into every meeting, every day-- both by preparing briefing materials and by helping me stay accountable for the tasks that I commit to;
  3. By being a thought partner in strategic prioritization-- helping me work through which activities (meetings/trips) I should agree to, challenging me to decline things when I overcommit, and helping to identify new strategic opportunities;
  4. And by helping me always know the truth about the organization-- building relationships around the company, and helping to strengthen a no-bullshit culture where we celebrate successes and learn from failures.

If you’re usually the hardest-working person in the room, and you place a premium on preparation and quality of work (i.e., you’re the sort of person who proofreads even an email), and you’re excited about the idea of being a daily partner to a CEO who knows he needs support to perform his best, then this might be a great job for you.
