Join the company helping businesses grow revenue through live chat, and so much more.

What’s the opportunity?

You’ll have an exciting opportunity to influence the trajectory of Intercom’s overall business, partner with our senior sales, finance, and marketing leaders, and take on an operating role with an exciting and fast growing company that aims to fundamentally change the way companies interact with their customers.

You will also support our Sales compensation strategy, design, and governance to ensure we have the optimal sales incentives to meet company goals.

We’re looking for a proactive, independent thinker with deep analytical skills, coupled with the ability to work in a structured manner to thrive in ambiguity. You are not afraid to roll up your sleeves, dig into massive sets of information, and create solutions to problems that have never been tackled before.

  • Develop deep understanding of revenue forecasting and reporting systems to drive efficiencies and process improvements
  • Lead the design, implementation and administration of incentive compensation plans for the sales force and sales management teams

  • Design, develop & deliver robust and scalable reporting (via Salesforce, Tableau)
  • Support quarter-end reporting and associated narratives (“QBRs”)
  • Develop strong collaborative relationships with key stakeholders in Sales, Finance, Marketing, and other key teams across the company

What skills do I need?

  • 2+ years experience in Sales Operations/Analytics role, preferably in SaaS
  • Strong financial modeling & analytical skills, and appreciation for solving complex, unstructured problems
  • Able to work with a high degree of autonomy, particularly within a global setting
  • Strong communication skills, including experience effectively communicating with senior management
  • Proficiency in Microsoft Excel/SQL; experience with visualization tools is a nice to have
