Venture Build Architect

| Greater LA Area
We’re BCG Digital Ventures. Welcome.
We are an ever-growing global team of the world’s most remarkable entrepreneurs, designers, engineers, venture architects, product experts and investors. We build ventures for the world's most important global companies.
This is BCG Digital Ventures. Adventure awaits you…
 
Introducing DV Growth, our Venture Build Team.
We have entered a decade of disruption of large corporate business models, driven by a step change in the power of technology and the audacity and speed of start-ups. To be fit for the future, visionary companies will deliberately re-imagine themselves by injecting or attacking established models with new ideas fueled by technology. The BCG DV Growth Cohort consists of world-class leaders, growth hackers and business operators who stand up our ventures with the strategies, systems and processes to drive rapid scale.
 
Together, we are helping corporations own the next horizon of innovation.
 
In a startup, the post-funding shift from incubation to commercialization involves countless decisions that must be made. Consideration must be given to the right software systems to run the business, including systemizing the entire customer-facing workflow. Legal, financial systems, HR systems, facilities and insurance requirements for the business must be determined. We empower our Ventures (Newcos) with strategic guidance and a comprehensive build process. Using our deep operational expertise to guide new companies towards launch and commercialization, we provide the playbook on how to set-up and operate a business. 

As a Venture Build Architect, you will use your experience to:

  • Create and execute comprehensive work plans to rapidly build capabilities in business orgs such as Customer Operations, HR, Finance and Compliance.
  • Project manage the implementation of systems and processes while managing and coordinating multiple stakeholders.
  • Contribute to operational playbooks that support the creation and growth of new businesses by laying the foundation for legal, finance and business operations.
  • Research new and disruptive tools and vendors, providing recommendations for a portfolio of solutions for incremental stages to support scale.
  • Roll up your sleeves and dive into the details. No operational task is too big or small

As a Venture Build Architect, you will have the following experience:

  • 4 to 7 years of business operations experience within the high-growth, digital startup space.
  • Additional experience in a corporate environment is a plus.
  • Extensive experience implementing successful systems and processes for business and people operations, preferably in an early-stage startup environment.
  • Working knowledge of operational infrastructure areas including customer operations, payroll and compensation, accounting and how to develop scalable processes.
  • Expert project management skills and familiarity with common tech-forward project-management tools such as Trello, Asana and Jira.
  • Expert MS Office skills, particularly MS PowerPoint, Word and Excel.

An ideal Venture Build Architect has:

  • A passion and enthusiasm for building great companies.
  • Fearless scrappiness to proactively identify problems and take initiative to solve them without waiting to be given instructions.
  • Excellent analytical skills and a data-driven approach to all solutions.
  • Exceptional collaboration and communication skills and the ability to collaborate successfully with a wide range of teams and seniority levels.
  • Comfortable working as an individual contributor in a fast-paced, dynamic, high-energy environment.

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.

Lydia

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.

Louis

Senior 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 alongside Joe Takai.

Lisa

Center Project Associate

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.

Hans

Partner

How does the company support your career growth?

Long-term career success is determinant on you making a name for yourself-- not only at DV on the project you're on, but longer term in the industry. I always try to find ways for my team to develop their personal brands and show them off as experts. Our employees' personal growth, visibility and brand is just as important as our ventures.

Tony

Product Director
