  • Engage cross-functionally with Revenue Operations (SalesOps, MarOps, DataOps) to maintain data integrity and identify changes needed to databases to support marketing team requirements

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, especially with assisting in generating inputs to reviews and reports that are often assembled just-in-time
  • Self-starter who thrives in a rapidly changing environment, unfazed by “blank sheet of paper” problems (vs. highly structured environment).
  • Ability to inform and support senior leadership, drive change, and also pivot to work in the details to troubleshoot issues.
  • Intermediate to advanced SQL
