About Guest House
At Guest House, we’re reimagining how spaces are furnished and people shop. From our origins as a furniture store in our own house in Denver, CO to a rapidly growing technology platform disrupting a $200 billion dollar furnishings market, we’re seizing the opportunity to turn millions of homes into retail destinations. Today, we’re operating in Denver, Boulder, Colorado Springs and San Diego. We’re growing quickly after recently raising a $3 million seed round led by Range Ventures, with participation from Ludlow, 87 Capital, Rucker Park, V1 and Breaktrail.

Retail, meet real estate.
We see every real estate listing as an opportunity to create a beautifully-designed, shoppable space that immediately makes the buyer feel at home. And the market is huge, with over 5.5M homes sold each year and over a quarter of them being staged.

  • We’re creating the future of furnishing by staging homes anyone can shop (@guesthouseshop)
  • We partner with leading brands including Crate & Barrel, Joybird, Burrow and many more
  • We’re creating the most loved furniture resale marketplace, where you can shop gently used products from your favorite brands at a fraction of the price
  • We’ve built the first-ever tech platform for staging that allows us to scale our model faster and more efficiently than anyone in the market
  • Homes sell 40% faster and up to 25% more when staged by Guest House

Home staging is just the start. We envision a world where all spaces can be designed with Guest House, while simultaneously providing an innovative retail experience. Imagine, with a few taps, being able to recreate the trendy boutique hotel room or Airbnb stay in your own home. Across real estate, hospitality, and more – we’re changing the way people shop forever.

The Role
With a recent $3M fundraise, our eyes are on the future. Our Chief of Staff will be responsible for partnering with Alex to design a comprehensive operational strategy to achieve our market expansion, scaling and operational efficiency goals. In close partnership with the CEO and other Guest House leaders, the Chief of Staff will help bring the vision and organizational goals to life alongside a high performing team (including: Jon, Stang, Bret and Elliot). As a partner to the CEO, you will be afforded a great deal of autonomy to accelerate the momentum of strategic initiatives and day-to-day operations.

In the first 12 months, you will focus on:

  • Diving into our most important business challenges to help define our operating model and establish Guest House as the category leader
  • Leading and partnering on special projects at the direction of the CEO
  • Evaluating opportunities to streamline and enhance our model, defining a vision to accelerate revenue growth and market expansion in a cost-effective manner
  • Navigating ambiguity, intensity and some turbulence along the way while building resilience within our operations and for our team
  • Developing high-quality processes to improve how we operate company-wide in partnership with other cross-functional leaders
  • Ensuring we have the systems and measurements in place to monitor progress and outcomes or quickly identify opportunities for improvement
  • Bringing a data-driven point of view to every decision in order to provide clear direction to your team and cross-functional partners
  • Forging trusting, strategic and productive relationships with our team as well as our partners, vendors, and investors
  • Building a functional, efficient ecosystem balancing the needs of realtors, designers, brands and shoppers

We’ll prioritize the following experiences and traits:

  • Experience advancing through analytical, operational or GM roles with an increasing sphere of responsibility in growth-stage, dynamic technology companies
  • Experience with a marketplace business / market expansion
  • Exceptional analytical skills and expertise in Excel and the ability to translate data into actionable insights and recommendations
  • The ability to create and implement systems, organizational structures, and processes to achieve the organization’s KPIs paired
  • A track record of outstanding performance among a high-performing peer group
  • The ability to be decisive and mobilize the team to seize critical opportunities, prioritizing the most important activities rather than the most obvious ones
  • Excellent communication skills, a commitment to collaboration and a positive attitude regardless of what each day brings
  • The ability to succeed with limited resources, bringing a hands-on, builder mindset where you thrive on pulling process out of thin air
