About the role

Screencastify is in hyper-growth mode. Over the past year, we’ve put many foundational pieces in place to help us maintain and accelerate that growth. We’re looking for our first VP of Operations to steward this process, build out the components of a new operations team, and proactively predict future roadblocks and opportunities.

Why is this role special?
  1. You’re in control. The future of the operations functions at Screencastify will follow your vision. You’ll work closely with the CEO, who will help guide you as you execute it. But ultimately, this is your show!
  2. You’re set up for success. You’ll be joining a company full of people who are acutely aware of (and excited about!) how much easier you’ll make their jobs. So you’ll have all the support you’ll need.
  3. You’ll be boarding a rocketship. Screencastify has experienced meteoric growth over the past year. If done well, you’ll play a critical role in setting our sights away from the moon and towards Mars.
  4. Join us at a magical time. We're bootstrapped, profitable, and support tens of millions of users, which gives us a huge green field to work with. You'll join at the perfect time to shape how we grow from here.
What you'll do
  • Oversee the operations of our internal support teams (both existing and future), including Finance, Legal, People Operations, and Data Operations.
  • Identify and prioritize opportunities to improve cross-functional projects, new initiatives, workflows, internal communication, and data pipelines
  • Manage the quarterly and annual budgeting process and P&L responsibilities
  • Develop a planning and execution framework around our company OKRs and design scalable processes for tracking and reporting progress toward goals.
  • Hire, develop, and mentor team members with the goal of continuously improving scalability, operational consistency, and speed-to-market
  • Conduct discovery around our company tech stack and identify opportunities for consolidating, augmenting, or streamlining our existing tool kit.
  • You are comfortable spending time developing strategy as well as “in the trenches” with the team as needed.

Requirements

You're perfect for this role if you:
  • Have 10+ years of experience in an operational leadership role, ideally within a SaaS or consumer web product
  • Have experience building, managing, and developing a multidisciplinary team from an early stage
  • Are comfortable working with complex data sets and business intelligence tools (i.e., Mode, Segment, Tableau, Periscope)
    • Hands on experience working with SQL is strongly preferred
  • Have Experience working with a diverse group of stakeholders, you excel at orchestrating teams around heavily cross functional initiatives

Benefits


Competitive compensation.
We take a data-driven approach to our compensation strategy so all employees are paid competitively and equitably.

401k plan + match. We want to invest in present you and future you, which is why we offer a generous 401k match with our 401k plan.

Minimum vacation policy. We recognize the importance of taking personal time off, and require our employees to take at least 15 vacation days per year. You’re also encouraged to take additional paid time off, as needed.

Flexible work policy. Gone are the days of being in an office from 9-5, Monday through Friday. We recognize there are better ways to measure productivity than counting the number of hours you’re in the office and that sometimes the office isn’t the best place to be productive.

Parental leave. Generous paid time off for parents to bond with the newest addition to their family!

Medical, dental, and vision insurance. We cover 100% of employee medical premiums and 50% of employee dental & vision premiums. Plus, all employees receive a free One Medical membership.

Professional development. Each department has a professional development budget and employees are encouraged to take workshops, attend webinars, join associations, and anything else that could help grow their careers. Did we also mention employees get free access to Udemy for Business?

Divvy bike membership. If you’re in Chicago, take advantage of an annual Divvy membership -- on us.

An Insider's view of Screencastify

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Work hard, play hard. Growing a company isn't easy, but we have a ton of fun going for it.

Keith

Customer Support Specialist

What projects are you most excited about?

We just launched the alpha version of a browser-based video editor. Not only was the backend tech a major breakthrough - I really feel that it's the simplest, most convenient tool of its kind. The editor alone can take this company to new heights.

Jason

Software Engineer

What are some things you learned at the company?

Don't go to the burrito place in our building. Just trust me.
