Beacon Street Services Senior Manager of Technical Operations in Baltimore, Maryland

Do you have a talent and passion bordering on obsession with organization and operational efficiency? Do you have the tech and operations chops to walk into nearly any scenario and confidently figure out how to handle it? Do you search ruthlessly for opportunities for improvement and create an infectious energy in your team to do the same?

InvestorPlace -- one of the largest, fastest growing, fastest moving financial publishers on the planet -- is looking for a Senior Manager of Technical Operations to lead our Technical Operations Group.

Our Technical Operations Group is the powerhouse that serves as the central operations hub for our thriving publishing business. This team is the rock-solid core that our editorial, marketing, copywriting, and customer service groups depend on to provide the best experience possible to our customers. This dynamic group handles a diverse and critical suite of functions and responsibilities across tech, creative, and operations.

The leader of this team will shoulder the heavy responsibilities of…

  • Taking ownership of the health, growth, and efficiency of technology and related operations, systems, tools, and practices at InvestorPlace, and

  • Being a skilled, supportive, and empowering manager to the varied team of technologists and creatives that make our business run.

Gut check

Before applying for this role, we ask that you look in the mirror and ask yourself whether you can do justice to both of the above responsibilities. The person for this role is a rare breed. We’re looking for someone with a unique blend of thoughtfulness, intensity, and drive -- a “polite bulldog.”

This person can’t stand it when things aren’t working properly. Clutter and inefficiency keep them up at night. This person is a firm taskmaster. A whip cracker. This person will push everyone involved in our company’s operational group to strive for excellence and progress. But that’s not enough.

Even more important, this person is also great at the “people side” of team management and cross-company interaction. This person is a hammer and a humanist at the same time. This person is empathetic and compassionate. This person delivers instructions, conducts reviews, and fixes problems politely and respectfully.

Above all, the person in this role is an ally to every member of the InvestorPlace team. Strong rapport with teammates and energy around day-to-day work is paramount. Our company is running at warp speed, and we need someone to help keep this fine-tuned engine running longer, faster, and stronger.

If this is you, we can’t wait to talk.

  • Take ownership of the health, growth, and efficiency of technology and related operations, systems, tools, and practices at InvestorPlace

  • Lead, manage, and mentor the varied team of technologists and creatives that make our business run

  • Manage all vendor relationships pertaining to the team’s functions, including ongoing evaluation of existing partnerships, contract negotiations, vendor selection, and seamless vendor transitions / terminations
