Office Manager

We're seeking an office manager to oversee the ever-growing Scalyr office and business operations.

First, a bit of background...

We’re a VC-funded startup, founded in 2011 by former Google engineers with a deep background in technical operations. Our founder Steve Newman (one of the creators of Google Docs) was frustrated by the sheer number of tools required to get his job done managing infrastructure at Google (17 different tools at one point!). Scalyr was created to solve that problem.

Over the past few years, our small team has developed a powerful tool for DevOps teams. It’s lightning-fast, feature-rich, and our customers - primarily engineers - love it (and pay for it.) We’ve been growing at a rapid clip, and we need more talented folks to help organize and manage that growth.

Your role & goal

You'll be responsible for overseeing all aspects of Scalyr's office life - from the physical (organizing documents, equipment, etc.) to the logistical (managing our transition to larger space and that move and setup) to the aesthetic (helping design the office) to the delicious (helping keep our kitchen stocked and our daily lunch options interesting).

You'll also take on some of the broader business operations tasks -- vendor management, staff travel coordination, interview scheduling, employee reimbursements, and more.

This is an important role and you'll have a chance to make a real impact in the day-to-day lives of all our employees.

You should

  • By hyper-organized and detail-oriented;
  • Have at least 2 years of professional experience in a similar organizational role;
  • Be able to work with a medium-sized team of mostly technical folks;
  • Be excited about broad responsibility - you'll be responsible for a large surface area of tasks, and that should energize you, not overwhelm you.

Your teammates

You'll report to Noah Lehmann-Haupt (who heads operations) and work closely with Kimbre Lancaster (who manages business and marketing operations), but as the lifeblood of our office, you'll be working with the entire team.

We’re a small, close-knit group. We’re highly technical and cerebral. We listen to each other, value both affirming and dissenting opinions, have healthy debates (with no bruised egos), and love talking about our product, engineering, and everything else (from world politics to TV to science fiction novels.) We range in age from 20s to 50s.

More about the gig

  • Full-time, on-site at our office in San Mateo (but with the ability to work from home/remotely 1 days / week);
  • Competitive salary & equity;
  • Generous benefits including comprehensive healthcare, free lunch, flexible schedule, unlimited vacations, and a very easygoing, low-stress, supportive and fun office environment.

A bit more about us

Scalyr is backed by top-tier VCs (Google Ventures, Bloomberg Beta, Susa Ventures, Sherpalo Ventures.) We have plenty of cash, and *gasp* paying customers and a healthy business model.

We're a team of seasoned software professionals, hailing from places like Google, Stanford, and MIT. Many of us have founded or co-founded startups and we're all nerds at heart.

We're a highly engineering-focused company -- we build a tool for engineers made by engineers. And we're just beginning to go through the explosive-growth phase (5x revenue growth over the last year and we're signing 7-figure customer contracts). This is a great time to be a part of the early team.
