SevenFifty is on a mission to power a connected alcohol supply chain by leveraging the nation's largest network of producers, distributors, importers, retailers, and restaurants. We are uniquely equipped to lead the charge of a full-blown digital transformation by utilizing our comprehensive database of wines, beers, and spirits and making it accessible through an industry-standard online marketplace.  

We are at a growth inflection point and are looking for an experienced executive project/programs manager to join our growing Operations team. This role will support a range of large-scale, cross-company projects in addition to general day to day operations. 

What this looks like:

As the Business Operations Project Manager, you’ll report directly to the Vice President of Operations and will work closely with company leadership to support ongoing projects and facilitate new initiatives across the company. 

We organize our teams within a matrix structure, with business units (BUs) defined by different revenue centers (e.g. Distributors or Suppliers) and functional areas (FAs) defined by skills/roles (e.g. Engineering or Sales): everyone’s role is defined within a functional area, and most team members focus the majority of their work in one business unit at a time. 

Within this matrix Business Operations often functions as the connective tissue, working on cross-BU or cross-FA projects to drive large scale and long-term company initiatives (think integrating systems and teams post-acquisition, incorporating new functional areas into existing operations, or executing on team restructuring). 

The day to day work to drive these initiatives and projects forward is often focused on facilitating, scoping, and coordinating: getting the right stakeholders in the right discussions to drive incremental progress, with commitments to moving them forward; transforming an outline of large-scale objectives into concrete project plans and resource allocations, with stakeholder buy-in; making sure the right information is shared with the right groups, in advance of when they needed it. 

If you are uncertain whether you are qualified, especially if you are a woman, gender-diverse, or of an under-represented minority, please apply! We would much prefer to have an extra application to consider, rather than that you screen yourself out.

What you’ll do:

  • Play a key role in company-level project management:

  • Contribute to detailed project plans and project execution: attend and lead meetings, document outcomes, circulate follow-ups, conduct post-mortems

  • Scope and own components of major initiatives: conduct the research to spec sub-tasks and identify stakeholders and due dates, flag dependencies and risks, ensure timelines and budgets remain on track

  • Partner with teams to build organizational capacity: Provide initiative-specific process consultation and/or project management assistance to Operations teams and other Functional Areas as needed.

  • Support executive team coordination:

    • Act as executive team liaison in functional and planning meetings: take and circulate thorough notes to the appropriate stakeholders, use your judgment to flag items requiring escalation/signoff

    • Collaborate with People Operations Associate to assist executive team with calendar coordination, travel, and company events (e.g. planning team week goals/agendas)

    • Facilitate company-wide info sharing: Circulate summaries of important company updates, highlight and promote awareness of critical documentation and resources, introduce new employees to SevenFifty’s working/communication standards and principles during new employee onboarding

    • Facilitate the receipt and organization of deliverables for diligence and internal and board reporting

 

What you’ll have

  • 3+ years relevant experience (Operations Associate; Senior Executive Assistant; Special Projects Coordinator, Consulting Analyst/Associate)

  • Experience analyzing data sets and information, interviewing management and stakeholders, conducting studies and surveys, and conveying findings

  • Experience using project management software (Asana, Jira, Basecamp, Microsoft Project, Monday, etc.)

  • Past experience at a small startup that saw 1-2-3x growth

  • Experience working across multiple verticals of a complex org structure within a fast-paced environment

  • Willingness to work through lack of processes and create them where they don't exist

  • Comfortable with distributed workforces and sharing information across them in many mediums

  • Proven experience launching and socializing new software tools and/or operating processes internally

  • Excellent communication and organization skills

 

What you do NOT need:

  • Experience working in a SaaS company

  • A college degree, or high GPA or SAT score.

  • An address in or around New York City. 

  • Any equipment – we’ll provide a MacBook and monitor.

  • To drink alcohol! Many of our colleagues do not.

The interview process (the parts are typically scheduled separately):

  • Initial Zoom screen (30 minutes): an overview of the company, the role, and your background with the Director of Talent

  • Zoom conversation with the Hiring Manager (Vice President, Operations)

  • Take-home exercise 

  • Zoom conversations with the team

  • Reference & background checks

An Insider's view of SevenFifty

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Anyone who has worked in restaurants knows that there's a specific kind of comradery, not to mention a sense of humor, that comes out of that environment. What I like about SevenFifty is that we share some of that sensibility. We work hard, we support each other, we like to have fun, and we have an appreciation for the industry we serve!

Jacob

Engineer

What projects are you most excited about?

I enjoy the consistency in my colleagues and what they teach me on a daily basis. There are always unforeseen challenges on the support side, but when you have a great team to help you, those challenges turn into things you look forward to solving. There’s always something to new to learn — that’s one of the reasons I enjoy working at SevenFifty.

Marcus

Customer Support Specialist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

We are modernizing an antiquated industry with technology by providing efficiencies that free-up the supply chain and enhance human relationships in a $250 billion space. I am fortunate to work with people that are at the top of their respective skillset (marketing, data analysis, engineering, journalism) and have a damn good time doing it.

Melissa

Senior Director, Importers & Producers

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

As a remote company, we work really hard to find ways to connect with our team. We hold office hours; run monthly "Ask Me Anything" sessions on a range of topics (our industry, equity); gather for an All-Hands meeting each month; do small group sessions on topics like mental health in the workplace; have our ERG "SF Community."

Erin

Vice President, People Operations

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

I work remotely in North Carolina, but I'm more connected to my teammates at SevenFifty than I've been to former coworkers with whom I've shared an office. I'm accessible throughout the day on slack and Zoom, and we meet monthly during all-hands + in-person at team week.
