  • Support timeboxed high-impact projects across the team
  • Create clear, organized, and referenceable systems of documentation and ensure their adoption across teams
  • Build systems to keep our work in sync as it crosses into other teams
  • With feedback from the team, iterate on our processes to make us more efficient and productive


What You’ll Bring

  • Exceptional written and oral communication skills: clear, efficient, and friendly communication
  • Obsessive attention to detail
  • Systems thinker; able to build and scale processes
  • Able to meet deadlines; flexible and adaptable when plans inevitably change
  • Experience managing distributed teams
