  • Guide operational improvements for our merchant partners by understanding the root cause and working with internal partners to design solutions
  • Partner with our sales and account management teams to capture the voice of the customer.
  • Analyze complex data sets and pair with field team feedback to provide insights and recommendations to our leadership and product teams

We’re excited about you because…

  • You have 5+ years of experience in consulting, strategy, business development, operations, technology, analytics or related experience; high-growth or early-stage startup experience is a plus
