About the role

SINAI's Mission Our mission is to engage companies to include carbon analysis in their entire operations. We do not simply talk about climate change. We help to build a carbon strategy based on understanding current and projected footprint, modeling projects to mitigate emissions, and finally helping customers to define a price on carbon.

Your Opportunity As the Business Operations Manager, you will be intricately involved in some of SINAI’s core functions: recruiting, finance, HR, employee engagement, and other essential parts of the business. You’ll work closely with the leadership team, report directly to the CEO, and help make sure things run smoothly and efficiently as our team grows. This is a great opportunity for someone with an eye for detail and the ambition and ability to make the role their own.

At SINAI you will wear 3 hats at the same time:

  1. Human resources

  • Update and enhance the company's policies as needed.
  • Drive and scale the onboarding experience for new hires.
  • Coordinate recruiting efforts with managers.
  • Act as a cultural ambassador, creating interactions that foster learning and experimentation.
  1. Financial Management
  • Manage basic finance operations (accounts payable, payroll, timesheets, expense reports, receivables, payables, etc).
  • Oversee and approve financial statements and consolidated tax filings.
  • Track and manage team budgets and expenditures.
  • Prepare statement notes and annual reports for investors, including forecasting.
  • Implement purchasing invoicing, and expense process from the ground up.
  1. Operations
  • Keep the office running smoothly and organized.
  • Develop and implement processes and policies to allow the company to scale effectively and efficiently.
  • Manage tools and processes for internal operations.
  • Help manage leadership calendars and team travel logistics.
  • Organize team and community-building events, including inspirational events, offsites, etc.

About you

  • Bachelor's degree
  • 4+ years experience in project management, office operations, or other relevant roles
  • Excellent interpersonal skills and exceptional organizational skills
  • Great attention to detail and strong solutions-oriented and creative problem-solving skills
  • Experience with all kinds of software, like Quickbooks, Gusto, Airtable, Remote, and multiple banking apps
  • Empathetic to cultural diversity and multiple nationalities
  • High energy and enthusiasm for culture and team building initiatives
  • Experience working in a startup environment or a realistic sense of what this means

Bonus Points

  • Experience in education/coaching, psychology, organizational design, operations, talent, or learning and development
  • Comprehensive understanding of employment law and compliance, compensation, benefits, organizational development, employee relations, and training
  • A passion for solving climate change!

If this job aligns with your passion and experience, we would love to hear from you!
