Operations Manager, International at Noom
Noom is a leading global digital health company focused on helping people live healthier lives through behavior change. We’re a mission-driven, high-growth organization that’s powered by science, technology, and world-class talent.
Our International team is seeking a project manager to help our team expand globally, helping every country in the world lead healthier lives through behavior change.
You’ll report to our Director of International Strategy & Operations, and act as a force-multiplier on the entire company’s expansion efforts. Managing multiple projects which enable launch and expansion, you’ll work closely across functions (e.g. Product, Marketing, Finance, HR, Legal) to ensure successful delivery. This role will focus on initiating, project managing, and delivering these projects.
You’re perfect for this role if you’re a self-starter, who has demonstrated success dealing with ambiguity, operating in a fast-growing environment and autonomously solving problems. You’ll need to build trust with your partners, ask questions and use data to make smart decisions, and drive systemic collaboration to achieve goals in a timely manner.

Leverage a wide network of people & resources to ensure on-time completion and deliver desired business results.
- Communication: Explain and justify workstream prioritization across teams. Communicate status risks, and changes of program milestones to senior business leaders
- Problem Solving: You’ll be the first to tackle many of our toughest problems. You’ll need to break down complex problems into their component parts and have a robust analytical toolkit to understand the best path forward. As you design solutions, you’ll need to see the bigger picture, and ensure they can scale as we expand every corner of the globe.
