Because you belong at Twilio
The Who, What, Where and Why
Twilio is seeking an exceptional and passionate Legal Operations Manager to join our global Legal team. We are a “small, but mighty” ops team and we lead the way in building processes to increase team efficiency and operational excellence. We peer around corners and partner cross-functionally - bringing the best resources and real-time guidance to the legal team to enable them to better support the business and accelerate Twilio’s growth. We are looking for a strong business generalist who will not hesitate to ‘roll up the sleeves’, attack challenges head on and build trust-based relationships as second nature.
The ideal candidate has 4+ years of legal operations and/or business operations experience at a Fortune 100 or global technology company.
As part of this team, you are at the forefront of helping Twilio Legal drive fast-moving strategic priorities, tackle operational challenges, and enable growth and innovation. You are:
- A natural problem-solver and strategic thinker. You are comfortable with ambiguity able to quickly tease through complexity and bring structure to chaos. You effectively identify and articulate implications up and downstream, taking action or escalating as appropriate.
- Process, process, process. You are always looking for opportunities to eliminate manual work and determine where operational efficiencies should be addressed.
- A communication ninja. You communicate effectively and provide clear materials with actionable synthesis and recommendations. You have strong listening skills and you naturally codify and write things down. You deliver pithy, well organized artifacts (presentations, emails, etc) to drive fact-based decision making.
- Analytically precise. You are able to perform and deliver large-scale, consistently trustable, precise and actionable quantitative and qualitative analyses.
- Creative problem-solver. You look at business issues as challenges and you like to consider things from differing perspectives.
- Highly collaborative, and partner-oriented professionally. Your team-first attitude enables you to easily and effectively work across teams and cross-functionally. You establish enduring, trust-based relationships with key business partners and stakeholders. You love helping others drive successful business outcomes in their areas of responsibility.
- Highly organized. Working efficiently is key and you know how to organize yourself and find value in helping others do the same.
- A positive role model for the team. You thrive in a fast-paced, dynamic environment and you are calm during the storm to the rest of the team when things are ‘comin’ in hot.’
- Partner with and support the Legal Operations Director on priority projects – from new legal technology implementations to developing a global onboarding program, to planning All Hands meetings, to global offsites.
- Manage legal vendors to optimize efficiency and help to reduce overall spend.
- Partner with key stakeholders to develop a technology roadmap and technology initiatives such as matter management, contracts management and RFP applications.
- Liaise with Tech Ops on identifying, implementing, integrating, and optimizing applications and tools, and building internal tools and automation capabilities
- Translate ideas & best practices to results by executing on action plans, and project / program managing in areas such as collaboration and knowledge sharing across the global team (e.g., building centralized resources, processes, documentation, intranet).
- Promote and support the team’s professional development by helping to manage CLE processes
- Deep dive regularly into key legal metrics to identify root cause issues and opportunities and follow through with action-plans.
