    Operations Director | Fast Growth Software Start-Up | VC Backed

    The Company:

    Harmonic Finance are proud to be working on a retained basis with one of the UK's most exciting Software as a Service (SAAS) start-up who have developed an innovative piece of technology which has the capability to revolutionise their marketplace.

    Having raised substantial Venture Capital investment, they have more than doubled in size in the last 12 months with 300% growth planned for 2019.

    This is an opportunity to join the business as it scales as a key member of the leadership providing a basis to have massive impact on the overall success of the company.

    Company culture is diverse with incredibly ambitious and passionate people who also want to have fun. The HR team being instructed to get the "brightest and best" to facilitate the company's growth strategy.

    The Role:

    The Operations Director will report to the CEO and act as the number two in the business. They will be instrumental in communicating the CEO's vision and managing multiple projects across the business to prepare them for growth. They will run the day-to-day performance of the company while also playing a key role in shaping and driving Commercial direction. Your role will involve (but not be restricted to):

    * Working with the CEO to outline the overall strategy driving growth and profitability
    * Establish processes and procedures to create scalable working practices (particularly with the Sales, Customer Success, Marketing and Tech teams)
    * Take a hands-on approach to implementing system improvements
    * Attract, retain & develop talent to build high performing teams
    * Support day-to-day operations in the business
    * Extensive ad-hoc projects

    Although the business has a very enlightened approach to working arrangements for its staff, given the current revenue growth rates this role will not suit an Operations Director who wants a steady 9-5 role!

    What you need (essential):

    * Experience taking a hands-on approach to building both processes and high performing teams
    * Ability to manage change and major projects
    * Commercially astute
    * Excellent Leadership skills with demonstrable success of improving performance
    * Experience working in a fast-growing scale-up
    * A sense of fun: this is a defiantly non-corporate business.

    What we'd like to see (bonus):

    * Software as a Service experience (B2B is preferred)

    Package: £70k - £100k base (depends on experience) + excellent share options
