Business Operations is a fast-growing, high-impact team that is chartered with three main objectives: 1) improve strategic, operational and financial decision-making across the organization, 2) proactively identify and execute business and operational improvements across the organization, and 3) implement globally scalable business infrastructure, practices and policies. We partner with every group across the company (Marketing, Sales, Customer Success, Product, Finance and Legal), and given the strategic and operational nature of the team, work closely with the CFO, CEO and other members of the executive team to influence key business decisions.
