  • Coordinate resources across multiple teams to ensure our Product Support Specialists have the content and knowledge needed to support our customers
  • Bring partners together to align on business goals, prioritization, and workstreams for our high-impact initiatives
  • Develop communication plans for effective change management of initiatives and ensure that the team is kept up to date on dependencies, delays, and timelines
  • Lead and measure program outcomes, evaluating projects post-launch against key performance indicators

We’d love to hear from you if you:

  • 5+ years in project or program management roles managing projects from initiation to launch - preferably with a technical SaaS product or customer support operations
  • Comfort and familiarity with collaborative project management software such as Asana, Smartsheets, etc.
  • Experience and expertise leading operational and critical initiatives in the constantly evolving growth and excitement of a start-up culture
  • The ability to turn complex ideas into easily understood concepts while communicating clear project objectives, timelines, and status with a diverse group of partners
  • A passion for streamlining processes and working collaboratively across teams (engineering, product, data science, legal, design, etc)
  • A track record for driving results and timely execution on strategic projects
  • A desire and steadfast approach to continuously improve the customer and employee experience
