Intercom is a deeply creative company with the confidence to believe it can fundamentally change the future of internet business. Our people are incredibly ambitious, yet humble.

What's the opportunity? 🤔
You’ll have an exciting opportunity to influence the trajectory of Intercom's overall business, with a particular focus on the North America & Asia-Pacific (APAC) regions, partner with our senior sales, self-serve, and support leaders, and take on an operating role with an exciting and fast-growing company that aims to fundamentally change the way companies interact with their customers.
As the North America/APAC Sales & Support Operations Manager, you will drive the creation and execution of quarterly and annual revenue plans, analyze and share insights on key revenue and marketing trends, and design and measure metrics to enhance overall productivity for the region. You will also adapt and lead the roll-out of global initiatives in your regions, including critical sales, self-serve, and support processes, and ultimately help scale our business in an effective way.
We’re looking for a proactive, independent thinker with deep analytical skills, coupled with the ability to work in a structured manner to thrive in ambiguity. You are not afraid to roll up your sleeves, dig into massive sets of information, and create solutions to problems that have never been tackled before. You are also able to work autonomously, yet collaboratively within a global team.
