VP of Operations

Job ID: 4549

Description

Secondary school history books will have you believe that Thomas Edison is the one responsible for inventing the electrical distribution system. By now, however, you've likely learned that Nikola Tesla's AC system is what really powers your home. Behind every success story, there is a powerful engine hidden from the public eye that makes the whole system work.

In Trilogy's case, that engine is a robust acquisition framework capable of acquiring two software companies per week, and we are looking for hands-on, quality-obsessed managers to run it.

If you are a management consultant interested in M&A but bored by traditional post-merger drudgeries, a private equity associate growing tired of months-long due diligence cycles and working with one target at a time, or working at a fast-paced startup but seeking to grow into a highly visible business role, then the Trilogy Ops team is the right next step in your career.

What you will be doing

  • Diving into the details of specific business unit functions (customer support, renewals, engineering, etc.).
  • Writing documents that make important decisions for the centralization of processes for acquired companies and devising execution plans.
  • Executing the proposed processes for centralization after the process has been simplified.

What you will NOT be doing

  • Project management, product management, or program management. This role is much more hands-on and in-the-details than a normal operations role.
  • Making subjective judgment calls. We are a data-driven organization, and each decision needs to be substantiated by evidence.

Key Responsibilities

  • Facilitate the acquisition and integration of two companies per week across multiple business functions.
  • Turn negative-margin software companies into financial winners.

Candidate Requirements

  • University degree (BS, MS, MBA, or PhD) in a technical or business-related field
  • 2 to 5 years of high-leverage decision-making experience
  • Superior business writing skills
  • Ability to work 100% remotely


Nice to have

  • A lack of experience in operations or software. The less unlearning you have to do, the better.
