We are looking for seasoned managers and operators who can work cross-functionally to develop a growth strategy, lead teams of teams, and execute with confidence.

As a Director of Growth, you will lead initiatives that will drive millions in weekly revenue for the business. This is a demanding role, and you should be prepared to wear many hats such as Operator, Program Manager, Product Manager, and People Manager. The ideal profile should have a strong entrepreneurial mindset, be a great leader of teams, be comfortable getting into the weeds, and be excited about intense, impactful work that leads to an accelerated career progression.

In this leadership role, you will help define top-level business unit priorities & goals, develop growth strategies, drive planning processes, and help lead the delivery of cutting-edge AI solutions for the world’s largest enterprises.

This role is critical in ensuring that Scale AI not only maintains its current growth momentum but also accelerates it to capture an even larger market share in the Generative AI space. The ideal candidate will bring a wealth of experience, a deep understanding of growth mechanisms, an inspiring leadership style, and a track record of delivering results in high-stakes environments. You have a demonstrated ability to lead projects and initiatives, establish credibility with internal and customer C-Suite stakeholders, and are comfortable rolling up your sleeves to tackle a variety of challenges. If you want to work on the most ambitious Generative AI innovation in the world and have some fun while doing it, we'd love to hear from you!

You will:

  • Partner with the VP/GM of Generative AI and other senior leadership to define business priorities, drive execution of key initiatives, and create alignment between and within teams.
  • Develop, launch, and ramp growth strategies to fit overall targets for your teams
  • Manage a team of teams to coach, develop, and lead a large organization
  • Drive operational excellence by identifying, measuring, and iterating against key success metrics
  • Collaborate with leadership and cross-functional teams (Engineering, Delivery, and Go-to-Market) to drive the strategic direction of our Generative AI business

Ideally you'd have:

  • 5-10 years of experience in growth or other operational processes.
  • Strong leadership and team management experience, capable of inspiring and directing a diverse team to achieve ambitious growth targets.
  • Strong executive communication skills – able to synthesize complex details into accessible and precise insights and a proven ability to work and build relationships with a wide range of people, and influence cross-functionally without direct authority.
  • Excellent problem-solving capabilities and a robust analytical approach, with the ability to leverage data to inform growth strategies (experience working on operational challenges or as a consultant is a plus).
  • Strong technical background (at minimum the role requires the ability to do data analytics using SQL or Python).
  • An entrepreneurial spirit, comfortable with navigating ambiguity and scaling new products or services from the ground up - you are excited about building things from scratch, and are not afraid to roll up your sleeves and execute alongside your team.

Nice to haves:

    • Experience with Large Language Models and Generative AI
    • Degree in computer science, STEM, or technical field, or hands-on experience with building software or machine learning systems.
