  • Own, define, and optimize the business strategy and performance metrics for our functions at Namely
  • Develop business plans and project plans for cross-functional initiatives such as new product and service offerings, strategic partnerships, and improvements to internal operations
  • Drive execution on key initiatives, show results, and transition long-term ownership to the right place in the organization as appropriate
  • Bring clear thinking and excellent problem solving skills to a range of other business challenges that may arise

Requirements  

  • Bachelor’s degree from a top-tier university with consistent outstanding academic record; at least 4 years of professional experience; advanced degree or MBA is a plus
  • Experience in a fast-paced environment working in management consulting, investment banking, or in a highly strategic, analytical and operational role at a technology startup
  • Proven record of high performance and substantial achievements in your past positions
  • Exceptional analytical and quantitative problem-solving skills with strong Excel and Powerpoint skills
  • Ability to work effectively with and communicate complex ideas to people at all levels in an organization
  • Demonstrated leadership ability in a team environment
  • Initiative taker, eager to break new ground, and create opportunities for others

An Insider's view of Namely

How does your team reward individual success?

In Sales Development, success is more obvious since it is metric based! We have monthly competitions where prizes range from trips to visit our offices, tickets to sales development meetups or visa debit cards. We also carve career paths and give additional responsibilities to successful individuals.

Daisy

Account Executive

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Namely is an inherently collaborative environment. Engineers will work with other departments on a daily basis, ranging from Product to QA to Customer Success. We don't do this just because it is the nice thing to do. We do it because it is vital to collaborate at all levels to solve some of our hardest problems effectively and efficiently.

Sid

Software Engineer

What makes someone successful on your team?

We stay away from rigid lines of growth, allowing for a wide variety of avenues. Whether that path leads you towards management, taking on more responsibility in your current role, or even to an entirely different department, we're focused on what success and growth means for each individual.

Rick

Sr. Manager, Client Operations

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Work hard play hard! We don't work here because it’s easy, we work here because we want to solve challenging problems and make a difference both within Namely and to our clients. The people here are always willing to go above and beyond for their teammates and take a moment to recognize a job well done.
