Senior Operations Manager – Business Services
You’ll be a seasoned operator, with experience articulating and driving operational excellence for consumer products. You’ll be a highly capable analyst and problem solver, able to find solutions and define problems from raw data. You’ll be a self-starter, able to deal with ambiguity and take responsibility for a significant area of the business with little supervision. You’ll be an effective communicator, capable of managing a range of internal and external stakeholders.
As the first operations hire in the Business Services team, you will report to the VP Business Services and have the seniority to build a team and function underneath you. You’ll work alongside experienced product professionals and hand-in-hand with data analysts, Member Support, developers and external parties to drive operational excellence and build strong operational practices within the team.
Some of the things you’ll be doing:
- Building and optimising scalable processes, that are clearly defined and documented
- Analysing operational performance, defining appropriate monitoring metrics and understanding the root cause of sub-optimal processes
- Vendor management: both monitoring non-financial performance and metrics, and escalation of issues
- Owning and delivering non-technical projects, and supporting Product Owners and VPs to manage cross-functional technical projects
- Working with the VP Business Services on functional strategy and planning
You’ll be a great fit if:
- You have 5+ years’ experience in a fast-paced environment, with at least 2 driving operational excellence for consumer products, as a Senior Operations Manager, Head of Operations or similar.
- You are organised, systematic and able to manage team members whilst delivering on multiple pieces of work at the same time.
- You enjoy working with data and are fluent in business analytical tools: Excel, SQL and Looker; and have a good understanding of RESTful APIs and web services.
- You are logical, and see data as a crucial part of decision-making, but know when to stop analysing and start acting.
- Your are resilient, willing to spend the time it takes to discover where a problem lies and not stop until it's solved.
- You are okay with ambiguity, and enjoy working in a complex, technical industry.
- You’re a capable communicator: able to get into the details troubleshooting an issue with a technical team one moment, and communicating your work to senior audiences in another.
- You will have graduated with a STEM/Economics/Finance degree; previous experience in an analytical role (Consulting, Banking) is advantageous.
