🚀 We're hiring: Operations Associate
Your opportunity to join Azeem and our team
I’m Chantal Smith, the Founder’s Associate here at Exponential View. I’m writing to let you know that we’re hiring — see more about the role below — and invite you to apply (or recommend someone you know) by sharing my own experience of working with Azeem and Marija in the past year.
In short, we’re a multidisciplinary organisation that seeks to provide an understanding of our fast-changing world. And that’s precisely why I wanted to work at Exponential View. I come from social sciences background, and throughout a myriad of different working experiences — crossing an Embassy, a university, private and public organisations — I was constantly trying to find patterns to understand global challenges and how to govern them. I figured one way of understanding the world is through the lens of risk, so I did my MSc at LSE in Economy, Risk and Society. At the same time, I was an avid reader of Exponential View, and I naturally gravitated to the organization that would give me the right environment and incentives to understand the issues I care about.
In almost one whole year I’ve been at Exponential View, I’ve worked remotely in five countries while nurturing a constant, supportive relationship with Azeem and Marija. I was given key responsibilities fairly quickly: I’m in charge of research and knowledge, and have autonomy on a range of projects across the organisation.
The work I do reaches founders, senior execs, politicians and policymakers, investors, members of our community, and all of you who read this newsletter. If you’re a driven and curious person, keep reading and consider becoming part of our team! I look forward to meeting you 🙌
About the role: Operations Associate

Work directly with the managing director to support our commercial partners, coordinate sales activity, and track weekly performance across the business to inform decision-making.
Actively support the implementation of our growth strategy by helping manage and optimise user acquisition and retention campaigns, working with data to inform the outcomes of growth campaigns, and working closely with the team to turn insights into action.

Support other parts of the business and projects that need your contribution.
Why you might be interested:
You will contribute to scaling an impactful venture in a fast-evolving industry.
You will have direct exposure to founders, investors, policy-makers, academics, thinkers and builders focused on the future.
