About Harrys 

Harrys started in 2013 with a specific goal: disrupt the shaving industry by creating an innovative, everyday product at a fair price. Since then, Harrys has expanded to Canada & Europe, developed relationships with retailers such as Target & Walmart, expanded our grooming brand into a personal care powerhouse, launched two new brands including Flamingo & Cat Person, & made our first brand acquisition with Lum. 

The key to our success? Our amazing people. From chemists, mechanical engineers, CX associates, to creative directors, sourcing managers, & logistics specialists, the Harrys team is composed of some of the most brilliant, diverse, & humble people youll ever meet. 

Our brands answer unmet consumer needs, but our company is a place of inclusion & innovation that attracts some of the brightest minds across industries, geographies, & backgrounds. Whether we have a team of 5 or 500, our core values & our startup mentality remain; we value continuous improvement & learning, teamwork & collaboration, creative problem solving, & open & direct dialogue & feedback.

Harrys is operating as a hybrid-first environment - for us, that means that we ask folks to come into our beautiful, 88,000 square foot SoHo office a minimum of 2 days per week, with flexibility to choose exactly which days work best for you.  What will you get out of that?  Bagels on Wednesdays & lunch on Thursdays, & fully stocked kitchens with snacks, coffee, & drinks everyday.  Cant forget the free products & the opportunity to have some meetings without Zoom (remember what 2019 was like?)

About the Team

The Office of the CEO is a small but mighty team that ensures everything & everyone at Harrys, Inc is running smoothly. The team is responsible for day-to-day operations & communications across the company. The team partners closely senior leaders & employees in each of our three offices (NYC, London, & Germany). Because Andy, our CEO, interacts with almost everyone at Harrys, so, too, does his team -- in many ways this team is the face of Harrys, constantly interacting with all of our most important internal & external stakeholders.

About the Role

The Executive Ops Manager will serve as an essential partner to Andy (our founder & CEO) & Andys Chief of Staff. This highly organized & endlessly resourceful person will support the CEO & CoS in day-to-day administrative & operational needs, contributing to projects & managing meetings at the executive level. We expect about 50% of this persons time will be allocated toward giving Andy leverage via calendar management & admin support at Harrys, & occasionally for small tasks in his personal life. The other 50% of their time will be spent on supporting the EA team & on project work & initiatives to help drive the companys strategic priorities with the CoS. The role is one that doesnt neatly fit within the confines of the 9 - 5 day, so were looking for a go-getter whos eager to be flexible & available, even outside traditional working hours. Andy splits time between NYC & LA, so we are looking for someone who is willing to travel to LA on occasion (<10% of the time). Because the role (and our team!) is so dynamic, this person must possess strong business judgment & communication skills needed to interact with a variety of people & job functions.

What you will accomplish:

  • Anticipate needs, look around corners, & provide the highest caliber of administrative support on: day-to-day scheduling, meeting logistics, travel itineraries, expense reports, & personal appointments & errands, executive searches & BOD governance support

  • Provide regular support to the EA team via biweekly/monthly 1:1s & lead the monthly EA team meeting. Serve as a PBP-like, always available resource to EAs, helping work through a variety of challenges, supporting through transitions, & serving as a hub for feedback & ideation within the EA team. Assist with hiring, onboarding, & training new EAs, working closely with Execs & VPs throughout the process 
  • For special projects that the CEO sponsors (e.g. refreshing our corporate brand), or processes & communications that the CEO owns (e.g. our goal setting process, & our weekly all-hands meeting) work closely with the CEOs Chief of Staff to manage project logistics, ensuring project remains on track & key stakeholders are up-to-speed 
  • Interact regularly & build relationships with executives & colleagues across various teams, externally, & with Andys family & close personal network. Serve as a point person for the International leadership team to Andy
  • Serve as a positive ambassador on behalf of Harrys, by consistently acting in a way that leaves people with a positive perception of the company while truly embodying our values.
