At Lyric we believe life should not be put on hold, while on the road. Travel should be an opportunity to feel more inspired, gain a fresh perspective, and connect with your destination. Our creative suites feature flexible spaces, purposeful design, and crafted experiences so that where you stay becomes a place for you to experience more. 
Developing inventory is a complex, cross-functional process. As we continue launching in new markets and develop new products, we must align all stakeholders towards making projects a success by keeping them on time, on budget, and meeting our brand standards for quality.  You are a highly cross functional team player, who can lead your peers to do what is best for the company. 

What you’ll be doing:

  • Business Strategy: At Lyric, we have set out to re-imagine what the future of hospitality will look like. You will work cross-functionally to help us expand to new cities in a matter of weeks. You will partner with leaders throughout Lyric to build business cases, develop insights and recommendations, and drive execution of initiatives critical to our growth.
  • Scalability: You will enable the team to succeed by creating playbooks that streamline our expansion processes. You will focus on operational efficiency by asking questions, collecting data, and performing analysis to understand opportunities to go to market better AND faster. You will catalog best practices, set targets, and advocate for change. 
  • Cross-functional leadership: You will be the glue across all functions, working cross-functionally to drive the highest priority growth initiatives across the organization. 
  • Communications: You are a strong communicator, and are able to clearly and concisely articulate issues, solutions, updates, etc. You surface and resolve learnings across the development lifecycle as the scale and tempo of our projects increase.  You’ll find ways to develop quantitative and qualitative feedback loops to make all our teams better individually and collectively. 
  • Metrics driven: You identify and codify the key leading indicators towards a project’s success - from a risk, timeline, budget, and quality perspective.  You use these KPIs as levers to drive consistency and reliability into the inventory development process. You develop a transparent means to identify the capacity of our cross-functional teams to develop new inventory based on a variety of fixed and variable elements and leverage this insight to drive hiring conversations across the organization

We’re looking for someone with:

  • Experience: 12+ years of experience in highly-analytical and strategic roles (general management, business operations/strategy, product management, growth, analytics, consulting, banking). MBA is a plus. Excel wiz. Team player!
  • Problem Solving Skills: Innate ability to find common ground, workarounds and compromises to help teams meet company objectives.  Creativity in identifying contingency plans to de-risk projects.  Creates alignment towards shared goals and objectives.  Resolves conflicts of interest. 
  • Analytical Power: Data driven and able to structure and conduct analyses. Thoughtful in analytical approach, with the ability to prioritize competing priorities. Able to take it past just “the numbers” and drive towards the bigger picture.
  • Project Planning Chops: Loves to create order and structure.  Can diagnose an ambiguous or ill-defined process and create a repeatable, understandable project plan.  Immediately identifies process weaknesses and develops solutions.  Creates transparency into opacity. Listens to and addresses stakeholder needs.  
  • Resourceful Attitude: Passionately finds ways over, around, or through barriers to success. Achieves results despite lack of resources. Goes beyond the call of duty. Shows bias for action. A results-orientated "doer".

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
