IT Operations Manager (f/m/x)

Job description

Sharpist is on a journey to deliver measurable business outcomes to its global enterprise clients, through a digital people development solution that founds on 1:1 coaching. As Europe's leading solution for people development, Sharpist marries the individual employee's needs for personalized learning with the demand for worldwide scalability of global organizations such as Axel Springer, STRABAG, and Porsche.

To achieve this "personalization at scale" Sharpist bets on unparalleled user engagement. This engagement derives from combining a 1:1 human coaching offer with a digital learning journey that makes personal growth transparent and gamifies the development experience, just like Apple Health or Strava are doing in their particular domains.
