What is NewCo?

“NewCo” (short for “New Company”) is a new consumer-focused DTC (direct-to-consumer) start-up venture being incubated by Harry’s. Over the past year, Harry’s has identified and vetted an exciting opportunity to create a new brand and business in an underserved CPG (consumer packaged goods) category. They are now gearing up to launch and looking to hire a team to build and run the business, revolutionize another category and improve the experience of millions of people. NewCo is currently in pre-launch stealth mode and will be spun-off as an independent company before the brand launches.

About the Role

The Office Manager / Executive Assistant role is extremely broad. As one of the initial employees at an early-stage start-up, you’ll wear many different hats - from supporting team meetings to ensuring payroll and benefits are properly administered to keeping supplies in stock. Additionally, you’ll support the NewCo CEO and Leadership Team administratively (managing calendars, travel, expenses). You’ll also play a key role in helping build the NewCo culture and making it an awesome place to work. In short, this highly organized, endlessly resourceful, thoughtful person will be a jack/jill of all trades that ensures nothing falls through the cracks. You’ll not only have the unique opportunity to gain experience in helping build a company from the ground up, but you’ll have a significant role in shaping its success.

Who you are:

Because the role is so dynamic, you must possess strong business judgment and agility to handle whatever might come your way. You have a passion for organizational efficiency and effectiveness and are a natural people person that has the communication skills needed to deftly handle a wide variety of people, functions and situations. You care deeply about people and teams and want to make an impact on building culture. Importantly, you can thrive in a fast-paced, constantly changing and often ambiguous environment that is a start-up where you often need to come up with solutions or processes because it hasn’t been done before.

What you will accomplish - Office Management (70%)

  • Inventory, maintain, and stock equipment and supplies (e.g., office supplies, IT equipment, snacks/drinks).
  • Be the focal point for IT needs in the office, liaising with external IT support as required.
  • Handle invoices and supplier payments on an ad hoc basis.
  • Proactively create and improve processes, systems, and tools to optimize office functionality / efficiency.
  • Help onboard new employees and coordinate with our external HR partner (PEO) to ensure payroll and benefits are administered properly and accurately.
  • Be the cultural ambassador for the office - constantly looking for ways to make NewCo a better place to work and drive employee engagement.
  • Create meaningful and engaging celebrations and activities that align with company values and goals.
  • Support as required with Marketing, Events, PR, CX and People related needs.
  • Manage relationships with building staff and office providers.

What you will accomplish - Executive Assistant (30%)

  • Expertly manage day-to-day scheduling, coordination, and meeting logistics for the CEO and Leadership Team.
  • Ensure team is prepared for meetings and events, internally and externally. This includes soliciting agendas, drafting prep docs, creating itineraries, making reservations, printing material, taking great notes, and doing whatever it takes to ensure effective preparation and action item follow-ups.
  • Manage expense reports and travel.
  • Anticipate needs, look around corners, and provide the highest caliber of administrative support

Basic Qualifications: 

  • 2+ years of professional experience, ideally in operations or in a fast-paced executive support function with cross-functional interaction.
  • Exceptionally detail oriented: You are a perfectionist who never lets anything fall through the cracks. You close every loop, spot every error, and look around corners to make sure every detail is perfect.
  • Proactive: You’re always three steps ahead, and know how to manage senior executives to help them avoid potential pitfalls. You are solution oriented.
  • Care about workplace culture: Some people come to work to do their job – you will see the workplace as somewhere to have also fun with others and to learn/grow, and put in place initiatives that make coming to work every day a more enjoyable experience for the NewCo team.
  • Entrepreneurial and Team Player: As a small start-up team, flexibility will be key. You are willing to help with any task no matter how big or small on any given day.
  • Great communicator: You can communicate nuance effectively to anyone, and you know how to modify your style based on who you’re interacting with. Whether it’s in an email, over the phone, or in person, you know how to get things done through your ability to clearly and professionally express yourself.
  • Consistent, Reliable and Hardworking: You are endlessly reliable, trustworthy, and consistent in your ability to produce the highest quality work. Everyone counts on you.
  • Creative problem solver: There’s no sticky situation that you can’t wiggle your way out of. You can think quickly on your feet and you come with solutions.
  • Relationship builder: You are naturally able to build rapport quickly such that you become a go-to in the office as a helpful resource.
  • Proficient in G-suite. Basic skills in Excel and PowerPoint a plus.

An Insider's view of Harry's

What are some social events your company does?

Inspired by the Winter Olympics, we're currently holding our own Harry's Olympics. It's completely ridiculous and incredibly fun! We also have happy hours, breakfasts, lunch and learns, and team offsites. I love joining smaller groups that connect me with people I don't work with everyday.

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

As Harry's expands beyond razors, we are focused on building a platform that can support multiple brands, which is transforming our technical infrastructure. We're also collaborating with our data analytics team to better understand our customers, both present and future, and serve personalized and curated experiences to them.


Software Engineer

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Besides working in an open office (where I’m quite literally always accessible), each week my co-founder & I speak at our all-hands meeting, allowing us to openly share what’s on our minds. We host Q&As, Fireside Chats, Lunch N’ Learns, & I co-sponsor our Women’s Employee Resource Group, where I work with folks at all levels within the company.
