Why Merely Join a Company When You Can Build One?

Business Strategy & Operations Director – Chief of Staff

We have an opening for a highly driven and motivated individual who has a track record of kicking butt and wants to move up the career ladder at a fast pace. If you despise ceilings and want to be known for building an organization rather than simply being a part of one, we’ve got room for you.

How long will it take you to get your boss’s, boss’s job? Are you the type of driven superstar who wants it now? What if you could leapfrog the process, without all the layers, confines, and restrictions of a global behemoth? We’re talking about an opportunity to be part of an emerging growth company that has the global scale, reach, and excitement of a big corporation, but the makings of a start-up – the entrepreneurial culture, personal freedom to act, intimate team camaraderie, and, yes, the equity upside.

Imagine a company so hot that in less than 5 years has scaled from a million to tens of millions of dollars in revenue, with a hundred million in its line of sight. Envision the possibilities and excitement of a company operating globally in more than 30 markets across North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. The potential of a company that has established an A-List client roster including Goldman Sachs, UBS, Dow Jones, Nasdaq, Gilead Sciences, First Data, and dozens of others, while building partnerships with industry heavyweights like Amazon and Equinix. A company so hot that it has been recognized by Deloitte as the 29th fastest growing tech firm in North America, and by Red Herring one of the Top 100 emerging growth companies globally.

Now imagine that you can leverage everything you’ve learned so far in your career to immediately become part of the company’s executive leadership team, working directly with the CEO to drive results from each of the company’s businesses while building practical leadership skills in a highly successful entrepreneurial environment. You’re able to challenge the status quo, apply cutting edge analyses, and direct change throughout all levels of the company. If you’re not ready to learn quickly, forego formal training, and tackle multiple projects at the same time, this role is not a good fit for you. However, if you ARE ready to accelerate through these challenges and bust open your career, jump on board and help us build a company that stands at the intersection of the tectonic shifts in enterprise IT, Global Cloud, and BIG data.


As a key member of our superstar team you will:

  • Set the pace, leading and delivering impressive results alongside other business playmakers
  • Independently drive critical process improvement and opportunity exploitation projects that rapidly enable company front and back office growth
  • Stop at nothing to ensure CFN serves its clients at the highest levels of quality
  • Develop an expert understanding of the massively opportune enterprise IT market
  • Prestigiously represent CFN at networking, awards, and corporate development events
  • Be a key asset for corporate development, working on strategic M&A
  • Advance the ladder to the next level in your area of choice upon completion of the program

While academic education is important, we’re much more focused on what you’re capable of. We favor demonstrated drive, determination, calculated risk taking, and leadership, over things like mandatory years of experience or advanced degrees. We offer a progressive compensation plan includes base, bonus, equity and a full benefits package with medical, dental, vision, life & disability insurance, and 401k with match. This is your opportunity to change the game, join an exciting team, and help us scale the wall in changing the way companies will do technology over the next decade.
