Business Operations Manager
Here are some examples of projects you might work on:
- Design and implement a system to make our monthly payments to mentors (spread across 25 countries) seamless and automated
- Build and own the company’s forecast operating and financial model, and track business performance against it each month
- Assist CEO with financial analysis, fundraising materials, investor presentations, board and investor updates
- Contribute to people operations projects, e.g., how might we think about performance management, org structure, communication norms as we scale?
- Manage the agenda and planning for company’s annual team off-sites
- Identify and prioritize new verticals and courses to launch, informed by market research and interviews of potential users and experts
- Work with various teams (Product, Operations, Marketing) to coordinate new course launches
- Build and manage partnerships with companies that have similar audiences but non-competing products. You’ll get to work on all aspects of the deals – from sourcing to negotiation to the working with our product and engineering teams to actually execute these partnerships
- Explore long-term business development opportunities, e.g. can we partner with employers for corporate training?
- have 2+ years’ experience at a top consulting firm, investment bank, or in venture capital / private equity
- are a structured, analytical thinker and a strong communicator
- are confident, entrepreneurial and self-directed — this is a role for someone who can take on a lot of responsibility very quickly
- can hustle and routinely take initiative beyond what is required of you; you do what it takes
- know that nothing great gets built without a lot of grunt work; you like to roll up your sleeves and nothing is beneath you
- are intellectually honest and not afraid to say “I don’t know”
- are fanatical about your work quality, yet have a history of getting stuff done
