We are looking for an analytical and driven revenue operations professional to join our team!  You’ll be responsible for building, owning and maintaining our go-to-market processes, reporting, and tech stack.  

As a fast-growing SaaS company, agility and speed is part of our DNA.  To do this effectively, transparency into our revenue “engine” is incredibly important - it lets us spot opportunities, identify bottlenecks, and find solutions.  This role will be at the forefront of that effort:  you’ll ensure that we have a complete picture of our go-to-market operations, and that this picture is clear across our company.

You must be detail-oriented, with strong prioritization and communication skills. You have a passion for technology and analytics. You’re someone who gets excited to roll up their sleeves and understand the details, is always curious about the “why,” and wants to help build our Revenue Operations function as we grow.   

Okay, but what do we actually do? We are doing something really exciting at Narrative Science; building the future data + analytics. We create software that writes stories from data - it’s the first of its kind technology, and we are passionate about shaping how human beings interact with data.  So our company is all about the intersection of people and data, and our team lives that every day.  We wake up every day to help humans understand and act on data - and you’ll help us realize that mission.

      • Continually measure and report on the performance of core conversion assets and campaigns
    • Perform targeted analysis to help us understand the “why” behind the data, for example:
      • Conduct campaign and A/B testing analysis with our growth marketing team, with a focus on performance optimization
      • Develop and implement a multi-touch attribution model
      • Develop a deep understanding of our target buyer personas and customer journeys

An Insider's view of Narrative Science

What are some social events your company does?

The Social Committee (which is comprised of volunteers from different teams) plans various events throughout the year including company outings and gathering to embody the company culture. Thanks to this committee, employees enjoy in-person and virtual events; pop-up game nights, annual Oktoberfest, a Summer and Holiday party among ad hoc events.


Product Marketing Manager & Associate Designer

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

At Narrative Science, teams collaborate every day. When it comes to background, experience, and points of view, we are a very diverse company, and our employees take full advantage of that. It isn't uncommon to see functional teams pulling in members from other teams to work on initiatives together or even just to get another opinion.


Director of Growth Marketing

What makes someone successful on your team?

The people that succeed on the Narrative Science Customer Success team are those who are naturally curious, have a bias for action, and put the company first. Our team is ultimately responsible for building relationships, solving problems, and creating exceptional experiences for our customers.


Director of Customer Success

What unique initiatives do you have that encourage innovation?

At Narrative Science, we support a spectrum of innovation ranging from our standard engineering process, through Hack Days and Hackathons, to our ongoing Incubator team. Narrative Science is only successful if we hire smart and self-motivated people, so we’re committed to giving them the support and space they need to innovate.


Chief Scientist

What are some things you learned at the company?

On the job learning isn’t just a role description, it’s a reality. In 6 months, I have learned Python scripting, HTML tagging, and API configuration. Colleagues taught me about NLG & NLP, Gross & Net Retention, and freshwater & saltwater eels. But most importantly, NS has taught me that we shouldn’t be afraid of data, data should be afraid of us.
