Think of Us (TOU) operates as an R+D lab for child welfare. We take on strategic - and opportunistic - projects with the goal of causing “good trouble” and ultimately, driving concrete, structural changes in policy, practice, resource flows, power dynamics, relationships and mental models.
Our ultimate goal is to build proximity so that those with Lived Experience in child welfare (former foster youth and those surrounding them) are fully integrated into every level and every decision of the system, ensuring everyone touched by child welfare has the conditions they need to Heal, Develop and Thrive.
We work across the ecosystem of current and former foster youth, child welfare workers, philanthropists and policymakers to Spark, Support and Drive to change the power dynamics to systematically center those with lived experience in child welfare.
This is a fast-paced, cross functional, high impact, problem solving role. The Chief of Staff is the right hand to the Managing Partner, acting to enhance their capacity, drive strategic alignment, and execute key organizational priorities. The Chief of Staff will help the Managing Partner operate better, faster, and with more insight across the entire organization.
The scope of work is dynamic - you provide leadership and take initiative to support key projects, manage critical communication flows, and plan leadership meetings. You provide thought partnership while also ensuring excellent execution and project management across the organization. The ideal candidate is strategically-minded, analytical, highly organized, skilled at collaborating across functions, motivated in a fast-paced environment, and passionate about tackling the trickiest challenges.
This position will report directly to the Managing Partner. While most TOU roles are remote, we have a strong preference for this role to be based out of Los Angeles with an expectation that this employee will work at least part-time in person (location TBD - expected to be Downtown or NELA area).
This role has a salary range of $90,000 - $110,000, with specific offering based on experience. We are looking to fill this position immediately - applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis.
