Associate, Business Operations and Strategy
New York City /
Attentive is a mobile messaging platform changing the way consumers interact with businesses and organizations. The company is one of the fastest growing startups in New York City and recently raised a $110 million Series C investment led by Sequoia and IVP—two of the world’s leading venture firms—in early 2020, less than 8 months after its Series B round due to strong customer traction. We’ve seen 347% customer growth in just one year, and now work with 1000+ of the most innovative brands like Coach, Urban Outfitters, CB2, PacSun, Lulus, Party City, and Jack in the Box. Attentive was founded in 2016 by the co-founders of TapCommerce, a mobile marketing platform that was acquired by Twitter in 2014.
The Business Operations and Strategy Associate will own the design and execution of strategic projects to scale the organization. You'll work across functional areas like Sales, Marketing, Product, and Client Strategy, developing initiatives and processes to make the business more efficient and nimble. This role is very hands-on. You'll be expected to own the implementation and successful outcome of every initiative you work on, collaborating with leadership and key stakeholders. Due to the breadth of your responsibility and impact, it's essential that you're able to motivate, empathize with, and communicate with stakeholders at every level of the organization.
The ideal candidate is self-motivated, collaborative, adept at navigating interpersonal relationships, and quantitatively and qualitatively analytical.
