Business Operations & Strategy Lead, Monetization

 

Business Operations & Strategy Lead, Monetization

San Francisco | California | United States

The mission of the Business Operations & Strategy team is to align Pinterest’s execution to its strategy. As a senior member of the team leading coverage for Monetization (including our efforts in Shopping), you’ll drive critical business insights for our Executive Team while partnering with leaders throughout Pinterest to fundamentally improve how we execute. With a combination of exceptional analytical skills, an insatiable curiosity, and an entrepreneurial, “get stuff done” mindset, you’ll help us better understand our Pinners, advertisers, and products, and drive changes that will shape the future of Pinterest.

What you’ll do :

  • Business Analytics & Reporting. Develop a deep understanding of our ads and shopping products and roadmap and how they drive our business. Define critical KPIs, dashboards, and operating rhythms to help teams manage performance and create operational rigor. Be the primary point person with our Executive Team on understanding metrics movements and trends in our ads business, and provide data-driven insights on poorly understood business questions.
  • Strategic Planning & Forecasting. Work with senior leaders to define their strategic priorities and goals in the context of broader company strategy, and how these translate to their teams’ focus areas. Manage the forecasts for revenue and other “top level” monetization metrics that help inform company-wide planning and goal-setting.
  • Special Projects. Tackle ambiguous strategic questions facing the business. Partner with leaders throughout Pinterest to build business cases for new business initiatives. Drive the “follow through” on those initiatives to ensure smooth execution across a diverse array of cross-functional partners.
  • Build Out the Team. Grow a small (but mighty) team to help tackle each of the above for your coverage area.

What we're looking for :

  • 10+ years of experience in a variety of strategic, analytical and operational roles. You thrive on combining rigorous data-driven analysis, strong business and product intuition and judgment, and an ability to work well across a variety of teams to solve complex problems, and have done so at a fast-growing technology company. You’ve likely had Biz Ops, consulting, investing, analytics, growth, and/or product management experience in a prior life. Consumer internet and online ads industry experience a plus.
  • Ability to operate “full stack” while also developing others. You can self-sufficiently query data to ask and answer your own questions, visualize data in high signal-to-noise ways that make insights clear and compelling to executives, and create project structure and execution plans to drive swift action from those insights, while also growing more junior members of the team to eventually be able to do the same.
  • Structured “systems” thinker who also loves the details. When engaging with a problem, you balance a focus on quick wins and actionability with ways to help Pinterest efficiently solve that problem at scale through systems and repeatable processes, and are comfortable diving into the operational details with the analytical, data, product, and engineering teams that you will be closely partnered with to make it happen.
  • Entrepreneurial self-starter. You thrive in a fast-moving environment and are independently capable of seeking information, corralling resources, and delivering results without waiting for direction.
  • Strong communication skills. You can move seamlessly between conversing with engineers or frontline ops employees and leading presentations with senior executives.
  • High-energy, positive team player. You have a proven ability to influence without authority and build strong working relationships with business partners; this is a highly cross-functional role, so a low ego and a high instinct for collaboration are musts.
