Forward Management, LLC
Forward is redesigning the delivery of healthcare from the ground up. We combine the best of modern technology (chatbots, sensors and artificial intelligence) with exceptional people to provide world-class care.
We need a motivated and detail-oriented individual to support our CEO to help Forward scale over the coming years. The Chief of Staff will own special projects for the CEO and help fill in gaps in orgs and teams that dont yet exist or that need to be scaled and professionalized.
We were founded in January 2016 by former executives and engineering leaders from Google and Uber, and are funded by some of the worlds best investors and entrepreneurs including Founders Fund, Khosla Ventures, First Round Capital, Eric Schmidt (Google/Alphabet Chairman), Marc Benioff (Salesforce Founder), Joe Lonsdale (Palantir Founder), and Garrett Camp (Uber co-Founder).

WHAT YOULL DO:
Work directly with our CEO to help fulfill his objectives across the company
Get in the weeds of every part of the company, help bring better decision-making and collaboration across every org
Run special projects and strategic initiatives, owning design and implementation end-to-end
Communicate decisions and priorities across the company to make sure teams are aligned
WHO YOU ARE:
Impactful - You’re deeply mission-driven, and you think there’s more to life than software that enables puppy ears to be superimposed in photos. (Although we agree those are cute.)
Entrepreneurial - You’re a self-starter who loves to own things end-to-end. You don’t ask for permission - you make it happen.
Organized - You know how to keep the trains running and youre great at managing complexity without being overwhelmed.
A Problem Solver - Youve solved ambiguous operational and growth problems, and are always looking for a new challenge. Every project you work on will be the first of its kind at a fast-growing startup and youll have to make decisions with imperfect information.
A Great Communicator - You can influence people who you dont manage and be persuasive and effective while still remaining pleasant and professional.
> 5 years of experience. Startup experience is a plus.
Why Join Forward?
We don’t want to just move dollars around the healthcare industry - we want to rebuild it and fix it. All of it. You’d be a major part of the story behind one of the most ambitious startup attempts of the past decade and you’d work with a team of people who want to use their talents for good.
