Drive the adoption of data-driven decision-making processes throughout the organization, enhancing our data analytics capabilities to support business strategies. Ensure reliability, consistently, and accuracy for our reporting within the revenue org. We should feel this in our daily operating reports, our monthly, quarterly, and annual planning. You’ll partner closely with our head of finance to establish these definitions. Oversee all operations around variable comp payouts — across sales, marketing and customer success. Help run our weekly business review meeting for the revenue leadership team. This includes setting the agenda, support in forecasting, improving predictions, and establishing pacing towards goals.
