Revenue Strategy and Operations Manager, Japan (Tokyo)
Who we are:
The Revenue Strategy and Operations team @ Twitter partners with Global Sales teams to drive revenue, craft and execute sales strategy and manage all internal systems to drive productivity.
What you will do:
As a Revenue Strategy and Operations Manager (RSOM), you will be a member of the the Japan team and looked to as a leader in the organisation. You will build and execute core operational processes - such as business planning, reporting, and ongoing business operations management. In your role, you will also take up broad spectrum special projects ranging from designing resource allocation models to managing roll-out and reporting of new sales enhancement process/platforms and tools. Your job will also include in-depth quantitative analysis of key Twitter usage trends/inventory analysis in addition to other sales operations metrics with particular focus on problem solving and creation of scaled systems and processes. You will work very closely with Senior Sales leaders in the Operations and Sales teams to quickly understand issues and implement solutions.
The Japan role is also part of the broader Asia Pacific (APAC) team, and responsibilities often extend to cross-region projects, potentially impacting business from India to Australia.
You will be a self-starter, independent thinker, deeply analytical and detailed-oriented, but capable of working in a structured manner to thrive in ambiguity. Our team does not shy away from rolling up our sleeves, slicing and dicing massive sets of information, and building solutions to problems that have not been taken on yet. Your hunger for working with data is only matched by your hunger for working at Twitter.
What does success in this role look like?
You will embed yourself with the sales team and become the strategy and operations backbone for those teams. Present strategic insights and recommendations to senior management and partners in the Sales, Finance, Revenue and Marketing, and Support organisations critical to maintaining or developing long-term relationships with key brands and agencies. You are the go-to person in the Twitter Revenue org if anyone wants to know “what is happening” in your region. You will often independently identify issues, problem solve, and with enthusiasm drive solutions - people come to you when they have a tough problem and don’t know how to solve it.
