Did you know that this is the hottest role in town? As our Commercial Operations Lead you’ll not only closely partner with our VP Sales and Co-Founders to drive complex, cross-functional projects for process improvements but you’ll also be a part of the exciting journey to drive people development on a large scale for organizations worldwide! 🚀

Job requirements

Requirements:

  • You have 5+ years of experience in working in fast-paced start-up environments or as a management consultant in sales operations and commercial execution
  • You are a strategic and innovative thinker and operational doer, who thinks outside of the current norms and processes
  • You are a strong project manager who can focus on the essential, prioritize ruthlessly, dive into the details, and thrive in simplifying the ambiguous into actionable plans
  • You are an entrepreneurial and accountable self-starter who measures themselves on outcomes
  • You love spending your time with metrics and analyses, you call yourself an expert with spreadsheets and dashboards and know which data to gather to drive decisions

  • A culture where customer outcomes always come first and are higher priority than your personal needs is the culture that you seek to join
  • “Excuse” is not part of your vocabulary
  • You thrive for taking ownership and making the teams around you “move, move, move”
  • Disagree and commit is a principle that you hold high, if this is what it takes to get the job done
  • During times of hyper growth, it will be key that you maintain a welcoming and caring mindset in your teams that builds on psychological safety
