Chief is changing the face of leadership. Our mission: build the most powerful network focused on connecting and supporting women leaders. Our members are VP and C-level executives across every industry who are leading their companies today and building a more equitable tomorrow.

Launched in early 2019, Chief is a Series B stage start-up backed by General Catalyst, Inspired Capital, Primary Ventures, CapitalG, and other top-tier investors. The Chief network includes 12,000+ members from across the United States. We are headquartered in New York City with additional Flagship spaces in Los Angeles, Chicago, and, soon, San Francisco.
We are tech-powered. Our members make meaningful connections, engage in compelling discussions, and view our unique content through our digital platform. Our Product and Technology teams are building the future of that platform, with data and insights at its heart.
As our UX design & research scale, we're looking for an experienced design & research leader to build out a world class team. Member experience is at the heart of what we do, delivered through our platform. It requires the ability to understand what drives our members backed by user studies and data, and then shape that into intuitive designs for desktop, touch, and mobile. You’ll be a foundational member on the Product & Tech leadership team, working together with your partners in product management, engineering, data, and other disciplines to define the strategy, operations, and communications that guide the team to build great products addressing our member needs. We need this person to be able to juggle the responsibility of growing & developing a team, while also being hands-on with design. Hiring, coaching, and maturing our processes are key parts of the role.
