Lever

  • Full Time

A BIT ABOUT US
Lever’s vision is connecting human potential to meaningful work. Hiring is the most strategic challenge that every company faces, and Lever is one of the most recognized brands in talent acquisition software. As the innovation leader in our space, we are searching for great people to join us and push further.

We are proud of the company we’ve built so far, but we are even more excited for what is yet to come. Our 5000+ customers include global leaders, startups that are disrupting industries, and businesses around the world.

THE CHALLENGE
As a Business Operations Manager, you’ll identify trends and actionable insights from our data and use analytics to develop recommendations on how our Marketing team can move the needle. This will strengthen the relationship between all functions at Lever and result in better alignment across our Go-To-Market organization. 
 
THE OPPORTUNITY
You’ll be instrumental in supporting our quickly growing revenue operations organization and building out the top of the funnel framework that will scale Lever to the next level. The work you do will impact the way our marketing teams measure performance and make decisions on where to invest for the highest ROI.

You will use your prior analytics experience to dive deep into our reporting and identify the levers that drive our business. In your past, you’ve reached the limits of reporting in Salesforce, hit the row limits in Excel, and taught yourself (or obtained certs in) SQL to keep going past them; at Lever, you’ll put those skills to the test.
 
THE TEAM
Lever’s Revenue Operations organization is a tight-knit team with diverse backgrounds — but what we have in common is the ability to take complex problems, break them down to their individual parts, and put them back together in a way that delivers insight or drives business results. You would be a core part of the team that helps us provide those insights and drives change.
