We exist to give early-stage entrepreneurs access to a world-class network from the very start.

Chief of Staff

The Chief of Staff will be instrumental in allowing Contrary to take on new initiatives and long-term projects. They will assist other teammates with marketing, event planning, data gathering, due diligence on investment opportunities, and more.

What's in it for you

As a young firm with an exceptional track record thus far, Contrary has unlimited room to grow. If over the coming years you'd like to build a marketing team, handle our day-to-day network operations, or something else, you can do that. We set a high bar, but you'll have a complete view into our inner workings and control over your own future.

Who you'll work with

Contrary is currently a small team of two full-time, plus 100 part-time scouts scattered across the US. We think that your future coworkers are the strongest reason to consider joining us. You can learn more about Eric and Will online and judge for yourself. Folks we've worked with in the past have also loved the energy and diversity of our scout network.
