What Notion is looking for in applicants

About Us:

We're on a mission to make it possible for every person, team, and company to be able to tailor their software to solve any problem and take on any challenge. Computers may be our most powerful tools, but most of us can't build or modify the software we use on them every day. At Notion, we want to change this with focus, design, and craft.

We've been working on this together since 2016, and have customers like Pixar, Mitsubishi, Figma, Plaid, Match Group, and thousands more on this journey with us. Today, we're growing fast and excited for new teammates to join us who are the best at what they do. We're passionate about building a company as diverse and creative as the millions of people Notion reaches worldwide.

About The Role:

The Business Strategy & Operations team serves as a dot-connecter across product, go-to-market, and people teams to help refine strategy, unlock new bets/initiatives, and create high-leverage alignment across Notion. We partner closely with the executive team and functions to solve critical business strategy, optimization, and operations problems across the organization.

As our Business Operations Lead, you will blend strategy with execution, owning and implementing key initiatives to drive Notion’s growth. You’ll have the chance to lead mission-critical projects end to end — from working on strategic planning and analysis, to owning recommendations to Notion’s leadership and working cross-functionally with teams on implementation.

What You'll Achieve:

  • Partner with key stakeholders across product, marketing, people, sales, and customer experience to drive business strategy by synthesizing insights and setting actionable plans
  • Identify issues, develop hypotheses, and execute in-depth analyses to translate data into impactful insights and make recommendations to Notion’s leadership team based on your findings
  • Drive high-impact cross-functional initiatives such as pricing strategy, strategic planning and new market entry from strategy to execution
  • Enable our organization to continue to be highly metrics-focused as we scale by performing ad hoc analyses, conducting research, and building reports to understand performance
  • Leverage your business background to design and implement strong systems & processes that improve performance

Skills You'll Need to Bring:

  • 7+ years of experience in highly strategic, operational, and analytical environments e.g. business operations, investment banking, strategy consulting, private equity or venture capital
  • Ability to solve complex business problems, think from first principles, and build scalable processes
  • Proven track record of building strong collaborative relationships with people from a variety of backgrounds and disciplines
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills
  • Alignment with Notion’s Operating Values:

Nice to Haves:

  • Experience at a high-growth SaaS company
  • Experience in product management and new product launches

Our customers come from all walks of life and so do we. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. If you share our values and our enthusiasm for small businesses, you will find a home at Notion.
