Job Description

What We’re Building
Honeycomb defined the concept of observability and is raising expectations of what our developer tools can do! Honeycomb is the observability platform that enables engineering teams to find and solve problems they couldn't before. It enables engineers to answer novel questions about their ever-evolving cloud applications, so they can deploy confidently, resolve incidents faster and focus on high-value work that drives innovation. We’re working with well known companies like HelloFresh, Slack, LaunchDarkly, and Vanguard and more across a range of industries. This is an exciting time in our trajectory, we’ve closed Series D funding, scaled past the 150-person mark, and were named to Forbes’ America’s Best Startups of 2022 and 2023!!

In this Deal Desk and Revenue Operations Manager, you’ll be a joining a growing Revenue Operations & Enablement team, helping us to strengthen our go-to-market processes to sell faster and more intelligently. This is an exciting opportunity for someone with excellent command of deal desk processes alongside Finance and systems (including Salesforce and CPQ) who’s seeking more experience within Revenue Operations and Enablement. We anticipate core deal desk responsibilities to ultimately comprise 50% of this role’s efforts, and the remaining focus on developing new capabilities across the Revenue organization.

We’re seeking for a candidate who’s comfortable building and improving our RevOps foundations, often in an ambiguous environment, which requires us to roll up our sleeves and take a few steps back to achieve giant leaps forward. This means we spend time in the less glamorous work of cleaning our data, standardizing reporting, and debugging systems issues to solidify RevOps’ value to our organization as proactive enablers of GTM.

Who We Are
We come for the impact, and stay for the culture! We’re a talented, opinionated, passionate, fiercely inclusive, and responsible group of bees. We have conviction and we strive to live our values every day. We want our people to do what they truly love amongst a team of highly talented (but humble) peers.

How We Work
We are a remote-first company, which means we believe it is not where you sit, but how you deliver that matters most. We invest in our people and care about how you orient to our culture and processes. At the same time we imbue a lot of trust, autonomy, and accountability from Day 1
