Strategy & Operations Manager
As a Strategy & Operations Manager, based in Amsterdam, you will be part of a strong team of individual contributors located in Amsterdam and other offices around the world. The scope of the role is global and cross-functional but you will have two main areas of focus.
Firstly, you will be responsible for coordinating our strategy development and annual planning process (OKR methodology) - including progress tracking throughout the year - with our global leadership team. As part of that, you apply your strategic and big picture lens in connecting the dots, as well as supporting the global leadership team in identifying roadblocks or accelerators throughout the year to ensure speedy execution and maximized impact.
Secondly, you will be continuously identifying and driving cross-functional projects and strategic initiatives. In doing so, you don’t shy away from managing multiple projects at once, prioritizing as needed. You are comfortable switching between being a facilitator and being a hands-on owner of operational execution, and genuinely excited to do whatever it takes to get things done.
