Startup Narrative Strategist
Full-time | Remote | India

This JD is unlike any other you would come across. We have put in a lot of thought and effort to draft it. We hope you take time to read it before applying.

About Deck Rooster

Startups' multi-million dollar fundraises, and multi-billion dollar valuations are all the rage these days. But from among thousands of startups, only a small fraction raises a substantial sum. If there is one thing that truly separates the winners and the losers, it is the narrative - an 'aha!' narrative that brings the multi-billion dollar opportunity to life and makes the startup look like a winner already.

Deck Rooster architects startup narratives which are analytically sound and emotionally captivating. We then bring these narratives to life through visually stunning investor pitch decks.

Since starting 7 years ago, our tiny team of Consultants, Storytellers and Communication Designers, has worked with 200+ startups funded by Accel, Sequoia, Lightspeed, Blume, Softbank, Goldman, Y Combinator and other top investors.

Over the years, we have emerged as founders’ #1 choice for crafting pitch decks with a clear and compelling narrative. You can check out our work portfolio and client testimonials here:

Who we are hiring

  • We are looking to hire "Startup Narrative Strategists" (aka Presentation Strategists) - people who focus on cracking the pitch & building a narrative- while delivering a lively deck with support from the design team. (Remote & Full-time - just in case you missed!)

  • You will be working directly with the founder of Deck Rooster, interacting with founders of startups and leading & managing your own projects.

  • Current strategists at Deck Rooster love going down rabbit holes in business narratives - navigating them through their knowledge of investor thesis, industry trends, and new-age business models.

  • The role is for someone who:

    • is already "into startups", understands business models, and is not scared looking at an MIS report;

    • has the capacity to think laterally and to think visually, and is extremely analytical;

    • enjoys dissecting complex information, and simplifying & abstracting it for easier audience digestion, and can imagine an audience’s reaction to a message;

    • has an eye for well-crafted pieces of communication and can’t stand a bad one, and can also pin-point  what makes it good or bad; while the role doesn’t require designing - but having an eye for good design would really help;

    • can plan ahead of time, preempt blockers, manage dozens of tasks without letting anything slip by, manage timelines & deliverables, keep all stakeholders updated - and do it all with a smile on the face;

    • is completely self-driven, highly resourceful, and a problem solver;

    • and can keep calm when the shit hits the fan!

Workplace & Culture

With Deck Rooster, we are trying to build the world's best 20-people employee lifestyle business i.e. a workplace that can potentially be your lifetime destination (unless you start up your own thing!). For us that translates into:

  • that feels like a hobby, yet challenges everyday

  • ...flexibility that allows people to pursue their interests outside of work

  • ...environment where people behave like they are

  • ...culture where people feel trusted, heard, and empowered

  • that are constantly raising the bar and helping bring the best out of each other


🙋🏽‍♂️ People

  • You will meet here folks from top institutes like IIM-B, NIFT, Symbiosis, SPA-Delhi, IIT-Delhi.

  • Hugely diverse team aged between 20 yrs. and 40 yrs., with exposure to varied backgrounds like entrepreneurship, investment banking, family businesses, enterprise sales, investor relations, and founder's office.


👩🏽‍💻 Work

  • Every startup we work with is doing something innovative and is run by some of the smartest founders around. What this also means is that there is never a dull moment - at work we are discussing the future of Web 3.0 and GPT-3, impact of Plastics-to-Fuel technology, challenges faced by D2C brands, or struggles of building a fintech solution for Bharat. Cross-breeding of ideas is inevitable!

  • We are 100% remote team, except when we are together for our week-long off-sites in places like Goa, Rishikesh and Manali!


  • This really depends upon what you bring to the table. We might go as high as INR 25L p.a. and as low as INR 10L p.a.

A few things that our strategists say about the role:

  • "It is like a startup insider course. I get to learn about startups from the founders themselves"

  • "With a project lasting just a few weeks, it is exciting to work on something new every month"

  • "I feel I have made a meaningful impact in a startup's journey to success"

We are currently not hiring for this position.

You can join our waitlist and we will reach out to you ourselves once we are hiring again for this position.
