Here’s a bit about us...

At Victory Lap, we are really passionate about sales. However, there’s an unfortunate reality to the industry: there are over 14M sales jobs in the US, and less than 4% of colleges/universities offer a sales education. Victory Lap exists to solve this problem. We find, qualify, and train the next generation of top sellers, and help them land the right sales job, faster. We work with the top employers in Chicago (from SMB to Enterprise), and connect them with our awesome graduates who are prepared and excited to sell.

How much fun can that be? Honestly, it’s a blast.

When we’re not solving various sales problems, you can catch us doing one of the following: eating tacos at Big Star, playing a friendly (yet competitive) game of office basketball, enjoying our lifetime supply of RXBAR’s (just kidding, we only have 37 left), or hanging with our mascot Otis (our founders’ labradoodle).

Pretty awesome, right? We think so! We’re looking for an Operations Manager who thinks so, too.

So, what will you be doing?

  • Keep the engines running and humming with the foundation laid to scale

  • Lead multiple business efforts including Operations, Tech, and Finance

  • Build and revise revenue and financial forecasting models across all verticals as business needs change

  • Establish a cadence of reporting on projects consisting of establishing deadlines

  • Work directly with CEO to maximize revenue channels through detailed strategy and operations planning

  • Lead process for our tools integration and team training to ensure 100% compliance

  • Proactively look for new opportunities to improve and optimize end-to-end lead management

More importantly, who are you?

  • A BIG dreamer, thinker, and doer

  • Limiting beliefs are like poison to you, yet you understand and don’t underestimate the effort needed to accomplish BHAG’s (Big Hairy Audacious Goals)

  • You understand where there is a will, there is a way, and you remain optimistic and positive during the peaks and valleys of a journey

  • You take what you do very seriously, but don’t take yourself too seriously

  • You are a continuous learner with high self-awareness, and can speak to experience when persistence helped you achieve an important goal in your life or work

  • You are goal-driven, and someone who loves to win and hates to lose

  • You have an entrepreneurial spirit, which means you have the ability to move quickly with the ebbs and flows of the business, and constantly look to solve problems, not rest on them

Match our qualifications?

  • 2-5+ years in a operational or finance role

  • Management consulting experience or MBA preferred

  • Highly proficient in Excel and financial modeling

  • A strong communicator (written and oral) who is able to effectively deliver a message to different types of personas

  • Proficient computer skills, including Microsoft Office and CRM software

Here’s why you should join the Victory Lap family:

  • We offer the opportunity to join something from the ground floor with a proven model six months in (launched October 2016)

  • The ability to learn and develop skills faster than you’d imagine by working directly with the CEO, and given major responsibility to help the company achieve hyper growth

  • Flexibility. We believe in hard work, and lots of it, but we also believe in trusting our team to get the job done.

  • You will be empowered to do the job to the best of your ability with the support, coaching, and investment to take it to a higher level

  • Base + Commission + Equity + Unlimited Vacation

  • An exciting work environment where everyone contributes to the company’s success, and has an absolute blast while doing so
