DevRev

DevRev is bringing AI and Design to software and customer reliability engineering. The software industry is wasting hundreds of billions of dollars in activities that are bound to become autonomous with machine intelligence (think “self-driving”), provided one cleverly replaces existing systems of record. We are building a highly engaging system of record that promises to make product development and customer service joyous! DevRev brings our customers (Developers) closer to their customers (Revenue).

The company has raised what is presumably the Valley's largest-ever seed round, and we are run by founders who have built companies from scratch to NASDAQ-listed. DevRev is solving a difficult AI and design problem, and the early employees are committed to the marathon of company-building and hard problem-solving.

Strategic Operations

The Strategic Operations team’s mission is to help DevRev grow and scale efficiently by designing the best possible operations “machinery” of the company as early as possible. In many ways, this team is in service of DevRev teams and employees who are delivering the best products and services for our customers - product, engineering, sales, and support. Strategic operations are inward-facing.

Great operations design and delivery makes the difference between a mediocre “this is how it has always been done” and a more elegant, scalable, and flexible solution that evolves with DevRev. Hiring, knowledge management, real estate, travel, performance management - you name it - can all benefit if we get it right during these early days. It can’t be an after-thought, as it often is in start-ups.

The day-to-day specifics of the work of members of our team vary, but typically involve a hybrid of operational, strategic, analytical, and technical work. We dive deep into DevRev's needs, people, processes, data, and systems, identifying where large operational designs (or redesigns) can deliver 100x improvements through first-principles thinking, as well as where small operational efficiencies, automations, and tools can buy us “inches.” We are expected to work cross-functionally and collaboratively across DevRev to deliver measurable results.
