We’re BCG Digital Ventures. Adventure awaits you. 

We are an ever-growing global team of the world’s most remarkable entrepreneurs, designers, engineers, venture architects, product experts and investors. Our ventures create a strategic advantage for the most important global companies.

Operations at BCGDV

Our Operations team is the internal force that drives our business forward. It’s where organizational insight meets operational excellence. From Human Resources and Information Technology to Marketing and Finance, they are a dedicated group of one-of-a-kind problem-solvers with a deep commitment to world-class business services.

BCG Digital Ventures (“DV") seeks a Director of US Venture Recruiting to build a newly created business within the firm: a cutting-edge in-house recruiting agency. Leading this client-facing agency, the Head of US Venture Recruiting will work closely with DV’s US leadership and the global People Operations team, as well as with executives of corporate partners, supporting all of the start-up ventures DV builds. S/he will be innovative and imaginative, driving the sourcing and hiring of the highest quality talent for DV’s ventures.

In addition, the Director of US Venture Recruiting will create a process around overall venture recruiting and will be responsible for developing the in-house agency to offer recruiting services to all of DV’s ventures in the US, even once they have been commercialized. The venture recruiting agency is a revenue-generating function.

The successful candidate will be very strong in client management and will demonstrate a level of sophistication that goes beyond recruiting, including organizational design and compensation design for founding teams (with an understanding of long-term incentive compensation plans including ESOPs and LTIPs). Likewise, the successful candidate will support venture teams directly on key talent and HR topics (e.g., developing a framework to identify the ideal location and headquarters for each venture).

They will provide leadership and guidance to a growing team and will be up-to-date on the latest people and talent trends, having a progressive outlook on performance and development. S/he will preferably have some background in executive recruitment and experience in closing C-level candidates. Ideally, this will be in the context of start-ups (e.g., Chief Executive Officer, Chief Product Officer, Chief Technology Officer, VP of Customer Success, VP of Growth, and Chief Revenue Officer hires, among others). The Director of US Venture Recruiting will also have experience helping junior recruiters navigate the tech/VC/Series A companies and landscape.

You should have:
  • Experience as an executive recruiter within a start-up environment
  • Experience building and managing a recruiting team within a quickly growing recruiting organization
  • Experience recruiting for multi-disciplinary roles in New York and Los Angeles, among other regions
  • Deep networks in talent-sourcing communities
  • A strong background in client/account management at senior levels and within complex governance structures
  • An understanding of tech/ VC/Series A companies and landscape
  • Experience in compensation design (including long-term incentive structuring) for start-up talent
  • Prior involvement in organizational design. Ability to juggle multiple initiatives and short- and long-term priorities in a challenging fast-paced environment that involves building companies from zero at an unprecedented pace
  • Self-motivation and initiative; creative problem-solving skills and willingness to offer suggestions for improvement
  • Demonstrated diligence, attention to detail, and technical intuition
  • Ability to join teams and build relationships throughout a loosely structured organization; similarly, ability to build relationships to leverage resources
  • Flexibility as a service-oriented, positive team-player; non-hierarchical and non-status oriented
  • Gravitas and executive presence; the ability to have strategic talent conversations
  • Cerebral capacity, humility, resiliency, and ability to stretch one’s own development; self-reflective with an openness to giving and receiving feedback
  • Strong leadership skills with the ability to mentor and coach junior members of the team while also driving own performance

An Insider's view of BCG Digital Ventures

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The Center is an interesting mix of east-coast grit and west-coast chill. There’s always something new to explore and learn, as most DVers have a wealth of business and life experience. Lunches (and occasional late night dinners) are eaten family style and the people are supportive, which helps us all keep calm during high-stress situations.


Senior Strategic Designer

What does your typical day look like?

One week I am flying to a far flung city to understand big customer and market frictions, the next week we are ideating on how we solve these challenges. By far, some of the most interesting and fast paced work I have ever been part of.


Lead Venture Architect

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I came to DV from an event background and was hesitant to take a job as an Executive Assistant – I had never been an assistant before and didn't know the ropes. Over time, I was encouraged by my line manager and others to take on new challenges and my responsibilities grew to managing all center events, furthering the DV vision.


Senior Executive Assistant

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

I maintain multiple (8+) mentor relationships across functional groups and at all levels of seniority. This enables me to have 1 on 1 conversations biweekly or monthly where I can listen to questions, concerns, and aspirations, and also share my vision or objectives.
