We are a lean team that loves solving hard business problems and building processes and tools to help our organization scale. We are constantly seeking ways to accelerate Sift's growth by improving how our business partners execute their day-to-day operations.

Sift’s Sales Operations & Strategy team supports the company’s Account Executives, Sales Development Representatives, Account Managers, Technical Account Managers, our pre- and post-sales Engineers, and our Support team. Do you love partnering? Are you highly analytical, adept at creating process, and can confidently lead both insight generation & execution? If so, continue reading.

What you’ll do:

  • Drive discipline and accuracy around forecasting: instill opportunity management hygiene, team up with AEs, AMs, and management to build pipeline coverage, co-manage forecast reporting to the company’s leadership team
  • Create real-time dashboards and own analytics projects end-to-end; generate compelling insights around go-to-market effectiveness and drive accountability for business outcomes through KPI design, monitoring & review
  • Perform capacity modeling and territory planning to ensure that Sift deploys sales resources effectively to capture maximize growth
  • Perform quota planning, issue individual incentive compensation plans and answer questions from the field about incentive compensation
  • Create tools, processes, mechanisms and automation that reduces the burden on our Sales and Technical Services teams so they can focus on serving customers.

What would make you a strong fit:

  • 3+ years of ever-increasing responsibility in Sales Operations, Business Operations, or Strategy within a B2B (ideally SaaS) company.
  • A drive to execute and realize lasting impact with projects large and small.
  • An ownership mentality: you take pride in your work and view what you do as a part-owner and builder of Sift. You relish operating independently and with multiple teams relying on you.
  • Ninja-like analysis skills: you know what questions to ask, what the data says, and what actions we can take based upon the results. You are a power user of Excel and may have SQL skills too.
  • Deft ability to turn data into meaningful insight: you know how to craft compelling presentations and can lead executives through data deep-dives. Additionally, you’re eager to build slick Tableau or SFDC dashboards.
  • Project management whiz: You can scope a complex project, break it into pieces, and execute against a work plan. You communicate deliverables regularly and avoid preventable fire drills.
