The Role

As a Strategy and Operations Manager on the BizOps team you will be responsible for providing actionable analyses to inform decision making throughout Linktree.

We are hoping you are super smart with a superhuman ability to get things done. We’ll need you to prioritise efficiently and have a clear framework for doing so. You’ll also need to be a great communicator, who can back up their opinions with a clearly justified rationale.

Given the nature of the role, it’s also critical that you’re comfortable with numbers and large data sets and have the ability to translate these into meaningful insights. Bonus points if you’re a weapon at G suite, Excel and Looker.

You should be someone who is comfortable with ambiguity, your plan for the day might be thrown out the window at 9am and that's fine with you. This isn't a do the tasks on the job description kind of role. It's constantly evolving, changing, and growing.

  • Be a point of contact for ad hoc requests for analysis and support from across the company

  • Set company targets, monitor them and regularly and effectively share progress with the company

  • Partner with the product team to help size opportunities and devise strategies for going after them

Who We’re Looking For

  • Bachelor’s degree in mathematics, business, engineering, computer science, or related field

  • 4-6 years of work experience in management consulting, investment banking, tech, or related industries

  • Passion for growth and scale, and an understanding of the ambiguity that can come with this
