Operations Manager

Job description

In order to support the exponential growth ahead of us we are looking to add an Operations Manager to our headquarters in Madrid. The new team member will be instrumental in scaling Nextail’s operations as we build the next generation retail inventory optimization software, backed by the number one VC fund in Spain according to Dealroom.


The Operations Manager will be part of the Operations and Support areas under the supervision of the COO. The role requires a love for technology coupled with a deeply analytical mind, to deliver a top-notch service level to our clients:

  • Lead integrations, configure client environments, and follow up and resolve incidents.

  • Work with both technical and non-technical teams to continuously improve our operations.

  • Shift priorities and work under pressure while maintaining the highest operational standards.

  • Become a key ambassador of Nextail, as you lead client interactions and site visits - so be prepared to travel.

While most of our operations are run from our headquarters in sunny Madrid, we also have teams located in the main markets where we operate, currently UK, Spain, Italy, Russia and soon the US.



We offer

  • A highly innovative and fast-paced environment. As in any startup, expect to find a team with an interesting mix of business profiles, IT geeks, data scientists, and as a fashion tech startup, a few fashion victims.

  • The satisfaction of being part of a top team and contributing to the development of cutting-edge artificial intelligence & machine learning technologies that will build the next generation of enterprise software.

  • The opportunity to work with international people from diverse backgrounds and with extensive experience in technology, retail, consulting and entrepreneurship.

  • Flexibility in remote work and office hours, use of some of the most advanced collaborative tools.

  • Periodic company get-togethers to meet the rest of the team.

  • Flexible compensation plan that includes a fixed + variable salary as well as company equity as we progress towards our Series A and B fundraising rounds.


You bring

  • You are a graduate in engineering or business and have been exposed to technology issues. Prior experience at a consulting firm and familiarity with fashion retail are a plus, as is experience in the service/operations area of another startup.

  • Understanding of supply chain planning IT systems.

  • You have strong problem solving and analytical skills in order to understand and isolate the issue at hand before resolving it, or escalating it. You love learning and solving ever-increasingly complex issues. You are an advanced MS Excel user, and can prove it.

  • You know what a support function is and its key KPIs. You are familiar with ETL, ERP, SQL, AWS and other related concepts.

  • Strong communication, leadership and interpersonal skills.

  • You are a doer, with a work hard/play hard mentality.

  • Fluent in English and Spanish. English is the company language, but within the team we speak altogether some 16 languages (counting both those of humans and computers).
