At Klaviyo, we value the unique backgrounds, experiences and perspectives each Klaviyo (we call ourselves Klaviyos) brings to our workplace each and every day. We believe everyone deserves a fair shot at success and appreciate the experiences each person brings beyond the traditional job requirements. If you’re a close but not exact match with the description, we hope you’ll still consider applying.

The Klaviyo Go-to-Market (GTM) organization is responsible for revenue delivery and customer satisfaction across our fast-growing global customer base. To help fuel our growth and find new ways to continuously improve, we are looking for an established leader to drive our global go-to-market operations.  This person will report directly to the Chief Customer Officer (CCO) and partner closely with the leaders of the Sales, Customer Success/Support, and Partnership organizations.  

We are looking for a candidate that has a proven track record of developing, growing and aligning high-performing operations teams in high-growth SaaS or similar software businesses.  You are passionate about data, thrive in a fast-paced environment, and have the ability to flex between big picture thinking while also sweating the details. 

How you’ll make a difference:

  • Create, grow and manage a world-class global go-to-market operations function spanning sales, customer success, support, and partnership functions.
  • Partner with the CCO, functional leaders, and our marketing and finance organizations to help set and manage aggressive sales, retention, and customer experience goals while providing a high level of visibility into underlying driver metrics.   
  • Be the worldwide go-to person for all GTM data and insights, including understanding our customer segments, sales motions, and customer success metrics.
  • Manage and optimize all of the mission-critical processes, systems and software tools (such as Salesforce and Zendesk) that our teams use to manage our customer relationships.
  • Be responsible for workforce management, planning, and budgeting for our fast-growing global teams.  Work with our People Ops team to develop and implement excellent hiring, training, and performance management capabilities.
  • Provide exceptional enablement to our teams, supporting effective selling and customer management.
  • Lead a compensation function to set plans that attract great talent and drive appropriate incentives while being fiscally responsible, and ensuring that our compensation processes are scalable and compliant.
  • Partner with finance and legal organizations to develop and implement SOX-compliant processes.
  • Support both high-velocity customer sales and success experiences and enterprise sales and service efforts.
  • Maintain the roadmap of GTM initiatives, leveraging strong collaboration, prioritization, and project management skills.  
  • Drive outcomes through close collaboration with stakeholder teams.

Who you are:

  • Proven experience leading revenue/go-to-market operations in a B2C/B2B/SaaS software business.  
  • Demonstrated experience building and leading high-performance operations teams that help drive business outcomes.  Experience developing high impact strategies to improve effectiveness and drive key metrics.
  • Highly analytical and data-driven, with proven ability to use a deep understanding of business metrics to drive outcomes.
  • Process-oriented, with the ability to simplify, automate, and improve team effectiveness through process improvements.
  • Demonstrated success operating in a cross functional environment and delivering outcomes.
  • Proficiency with tools such as Salesforce, Zendesk, and Tableau is a plus.
  • Prior experience in both high-velocity SMB businesses and enterprise environments is a strong plus.
  • Strong sense of ownership over annual and quarterly planning.
  • Strong sense of curiosity with a bias towards action.
