The Org:

The Org is a professional community and platform for work where great teams build in public. We’re backed by some of the world’s leading investors including Tiger Global, Founders Fund, Sequoia and Balderton. We just raised $20 million for our Series B. 

Our vision is to build the definitive platform for work powered by a global network of public org charts. Our growth since Series A has been exciting: we have 130,000 public org charts. This summer nearly two million professionals used The Org. We’ve monetized. We’re looking to take our platform to the next level, spearheading growth with a focus on user acquisition. 

The Role:

  • Train new hires on the outsourced team and upskill established specialists
  • Strategize on how to improve existing processes and implement new processes that are more efficient and scalable
  • Ensure the outsourced team has a positive experience and The Org continues to develop a positive employer brand within the BPO industry
  • Contribute to the growth of the database by efficiently sourcing new companies not currently captured on the platform
  • Analyze data trends with the goal of improving workflows and developing new processes
  • Build and maintain org charts using our proprietary monitoring system 
  • Ensure data accuracy across the platform

Our Values

Transparency starts here: We’re on a mission to make organizations more transparent. We lead by example, and operate honestly and transparently, to show the world the value of transparency in business.

Hygge: A Danish word meaning “cozy”, “belonging” or “togetherness”, representing the way we treat our office community. We value diversity and seek out people who want to join the “hygge”.

Be a contrarian: We dare to go against popular beliefs and seek out principles-first solutions over incremental progress. We aim to find the best solution, not the obvious one or the one that’s been found by others before.

Go for it!: We take ownership and passionately seize opportunities to create, to learn, and to grow. We run towards a problem, rather than away from it, and fail fast and learn from our mistakes.

Do the dishes: We put the team first and do whatever is necessary regardless of seniority or what your job description says. Sometimes that might mean you literally need to do the dishes.
