This person will facilitate the seamless execution of our corporate operations priorities in a highly cross-functional, collaborative, and visible role. They will both inform the strategy and content for as well as help lead the actual execution of key live and asynchronous alignment activities, including meetings, presentations, off sites, and documentation initiatives. Perhaps most importantly, they will contribute directly and indirectly to earning a reputation of excellence, collaboration, and fun for our new team.

  • Leading the definition of agendas for key meetings across the executive team, company senior leadership, and other critical groups in operationalizing our plans.
  • Taking both a qualitative and quantitative approach to identify gaps in our approach to driving alignment through communication and collaboration, and using both your authority and influence the company’s capacity to deliver on its plans.

You Have:

  • 5-7 years of experience in operations, communications, HR, marketing, or project management.
  • A genuine passion for details, systems, and repeatability, and a track record to demonstrate it.
  • Extensive track record of asserting influence without direct authority.
  • Experience building strong relationships with business partners across functions, levels, and geographies.
  • Experience in driving the definition of your role in an ambiguous, flexible environment.
  • Meaningful exposure to the quantitative components of both strategy and operations.

You Are:

Reporting to Collibra’s VP of Strategy & Operations, measures of success are:

  • Within your first month you will dive into learning about our business through spending time with key partners and beginning to contribute to in-flight operational initiatives.
  • Within your third month you will be driving the execution of several key operational channels and have identified and will be building your own vision of how to make them successful.
  • Within your sixth month you will be fully up to speed on the business, and independently leading a set of operational touch points with the company and working with our team to identify gaps and opportunities in Collibra’s operations.
