Chief of Staff @ Eniac Ventures in New York City, NY

Eniac Ventures

Eniac Ventures is an early-stage investment firm headquartered in NYC. Since our formation in 2009, we’ve been committed to backing highly technical founders who embody our values of authenticity, boldness, curiosity, and scrappiness. At Eniac, we believe that providing capital is just the beginning of the VC/founder journey and pride ourselves on the deep relationships we build with our founders.

Chief of Staff — Position Overview

The position is based in our NYC HQ and the opportunity to partner closely with our co-founder Tim Young. We are looking for a team member with a balance of hustle, passion for learning, and strong organizational and communication skills — someone who is ready to play a key role in serving the founders we work with, as well as the broader startup community.

This role provides a front-row seat to the ins-and-outs of running a VC firm, and will involve all functions of venture capital including working with our portfolio companies, vetting inbound opportunities, conducting diligence, and firm management. The ideal candidate will be a strategic thinker who is organized, thoughtful and has sharp execution skills. We welcome those of diverse backgrounds to apply. Prior experience in analytical and strategic roles — banking, consulting, or experience at a high growth startup — are examples of profiles that we think would be a great fit for this role.

We expect this to be a 2-year position, which will give candidates an in-depth introduction to VC and critical exposure to all elements of the business.

Specific Responsibilities

The Chief of Staff will work closely with Tim Young on all aspects of venture capital, including:

About Tim

In addition to his work as a VC, Tim is an adjunct professor at the University of Hawai’i at Mānoa’s William S. Richardson School of Law, and he’s passionate about helping to grow the region’s tech sector.

The partners call Tim the closer because of his ability to find the best partners and close rounds for our portfolio companies.
