Startup Services Manager

Department: Programming
Location: Boston, MA

The Startup Services Manager, which reports to the Program Director, is the key liaison between the 128 startups in our Accelerator, MassChallenge staff, and the community at large. Your job is to make sure each of our 128 startups have a Ritz Carlton-like customer service experience and are able to get what they need out of the MassChallenge Boston Accelerator.

During the offseason of the accelerator you will help fortify existing program resources and introduce new resources for upcoming accelerators.

Day-to-day, the Startup Services Manager is the point person for all inbound inquiries from our startups during the program, as well as application season, judging, and afterwards as teams in our alumni network. In addition to providing day-to-day support, the manager will also funnel all requests that are outside of scope to the appropriate teammate and will take an active approach in resolutions. If you want a challenging and rewarding career in the center of the startup ecosystem, this opportunity is for you!
