The Operations Manager should be able to motivate and lead a team of agents while also performing (in partnership with our data scientists) the analysis work needed to assist agents in their day-to-day work or make other various long term operational calls. A successful Operations Manager will not only drive daily operations but also build and improve operational process and efficiency.

Qualified Candidates should have strong written and verbal skills, ideally being able to communicate complex concepts to varied audiences, including implementation details to agents and impact assessments to leadership, PR and Legal teams.

Qualified candidates will be comfortable with business analysis and working with highly fluid deliverables. Ultimately, we need a candidate who is an effective processes manager, and also an effective people person. A candidate who can exceed at both will excel in this role.
