What We're Looking For

As our Head of Operations your focus will be developing, improving our existing as well as replacing or setting up new, scalable processes. Simply put, we need you to come in and move us from a start up to a highly scalable company. We work remotely, with all our operations based on the cloud. This can ease automation, but at the same time, we need consistent processes (e.g. integration of systems - e.g. accountancy, sales, product etc. Working tools - sharing, communication, group management, file management, etc.). This is to help the team optimise our productivity and operational processes. In a nutshell, you will lead and help build the operational infrastructure that will mean we can scale rapidly. 

Working with the leadership team, you will be responsible for ensuring that everything we do as an organisation is scalable as we grow. You will be a core part of helping us to operate as a team, as we scale the product to help people improve the way the planet and its resources are cared for.

This is a role directly reporting to the CEO, with real influence on the direction of the company, and the benefits and compensation are set to match the ideal candidate.

•   Implementing a robust KPI dashboard to manage our operations (Customer Experience KPIs, Product performance KPIs, Operations Costs analysis)
•   Leading the implementation of new growth initiatives from the Operations side (new product line launch)
•   Supporting HR in the strategic planning as well as building and managing the team (hire / onboard / train & review performance)

Some skills and experience you will need:
