About the role

Business Operations & Strategy drives mission-critical initiatives across multiple teams at Scale. We complement product, engineering, sales, marketing, and core operations by providing planning, analytical, operational, and strategic support.

  • Help incubate, seed, and scale new teams
  • Tackle ambiguous, open-ended questions and quickly develop and iterate on a solution
  • Identify and perform analyses that propel Scale’s growth and evolution as a company
Ideally you’d have:

  • An easygoing interpersonal style and ability to work and build relationships with a wide range of people
  • A history of developing lightweight processes and getting them adopted
  • Excellent qualitative and quantitative analytical skills
