Job Description

Kickstarter is seeking a Program Manager to apply their love of automation and penchant for detail to the processes behind our IT, CRM, and company goal-setting programs. The salary range for this role in the United States is $80,000–105,000. As Operations Program Manager, you will care for the integrity of our IT, CRM, and company goal-setting systems. You will be broadly responsible for the efficacy of these programs within the Business Operations team remit of making our business systems more effective.

On any given day, you’ll:

    • Lead migrations between vital business tools, coordinating between our IT partner and internal stakeholders
    • Handle escalations and approvals on matters that cannot be resolved by our IT help desk
    • Turn ad hoc requests into systematic operating procedure so that you’re never asked the same question twice

    • Lead a roadmap, set in collaboration with other departments, to pursue improvements to our cross-team business processes

What makes you shine:

    • You’ve done this before: a combination of IT admin, CRM admin, and goal development; you have templates in mind for common procedure but love exploring undeveloped opportunity
    • Your irrepressible curiosity is tempered only by your personal standards to ask the most effective questions and reach elegant solutions that resolve multiple issues at once; your favorite problems are those in which you teach yourself new skills.
    • You are a champion organizer who sweats the details and leaves everything you touch tidier than how you found it.
    • You love automation. You can regale with stories of scripts you’ve written and are always thinking about ways to simplify processes without loss to quality and joy.
    • You’ve built rapport across a broad range of stakeholders, knowing that interpersonal trust is what gives a project its velocity.
    • The only thing better than making your team more effective is the prospect of contributing to a platform that helps make the dreams of indie creators come true.
