Job description

To continue striving for holistic excellence in our operations, we are seeking a highly capable Chief of Staff to join our leadership team. Alongside the CEO and COO, you will be a driving force in our organization and strategic initiatives. You will play a crucial role in moving from strategy to execution, from values to culture, and from efforts to results.

You are an exceptional leader with a dynamic blend of strategic conceptual understanding, project management expertise, and administrative prowess. Your role requires a strong, reliable personality with a sharp, forward-thinking mind that has keen attention to detail, and takes the initiative without losing sight of the big picture. Exceptional skills in organization, team administration and leadership are given. As Chief of Staff, you will champion our values, act on their behalf, propel our mission, and develop us as a team and an organization.

Key responsibilities & tasks

From strategic planning to execution

  • Contribute significantly to the planning, development, and administration of organizational and team development initiatives.

  • Work closely with the co-founders and executives to pull, push, and drive both our team and organization fearlessly forward into exceptional execution.

  • Take proactive action to build and develop a stellar team that can compete with global champions—as we won’t settle for anything less.

Operational leadership, administration & change management

  • Drive operational excellence in collaboration with an exceptional co-founder and executive team, and foster a proactive, high-performance culture within the organization and the team.

  • Lead change management projects, from defining organizational concepts and goals to resource allocation, implementation, and communication.

  • Own, develop, administer, and operationalize all internal cross-team processes and tools to maintain a high-performance environment while moving through rapid business growth.

Leadership in people & administration

  • Uphold our strategic goals and embody our performance culture.

  • Steer strategic HR functions by leading our culture and people management roles: Covering team growth, development (through initiatives like the Yatta Academy), activities, and tooling.

  • Promote a vibrant and inclusive company culture that supports our vision and strategy—and fosters our company’s core values and culture code.

Strategic advisory & support

  • Serve as a sparring partner to the CEO, the co-founders and top executives, offering support on all strategic and performance-related matters, and being instrumental in continuous improvements while executing projects and operations.

  • Actively engage the whole team in our vision, mission, business, and markets—establishing Yatta as a thought leader.

Required qualifications

Basic education & skills

  • A first-class degree, ideally from a top-tier business school.

  • Exceptional organizational and communication skills with a structured thought process.

  • Proven competence in handling complex issues and managing stakeholders.

  • Fluency in English and German, both in writing and speaking.

Relevant work experience & track record

  • At least 2-3 years of experience in strategic consulting at one of the TOP5 firms, ideally at McKinsey or BCG.

  • Experience in personnel management, business administration, organizational development, or change management is a must.

  • Additional administrative or leadership experience in the VC-backed tech startup landscape (e.g., Rocket Internet or similar) is desirable.

Personality & way of working

  • Empathetic and goal-driven, demonstrating strong communication and negotiation skills in personal interactions.

  • A leader with an eye for detail, who takes initiative, solves problems, and gets the job done.

  • Embraces a generalist approach, aspiring to holistic excellence in all aspects of your work.

  • A team player who can confidently navigate conflict, showing strong drive, commitment, and determination.

As the Chief of Staff at Yatta, your role goes beyond a mere job description—it‘s a calling. You will be the linchpin connecting strategy to execution and vision to performance, the administrative maestro with your finger on the pulse of our organization, and the leader who guides us towards success. This is a unique opportunity to shape our future and to translate our vision into operational excellence.
