Who we are:

Nested.com is an ambitious new prop tech startup, backed by some of Europe’s leading investors, that is revolutionising the way property is bought and sold by giving sellers a guaranteed offer for their home on day one, eliminating months of uncertainty.

To us it seems crazy that people’s biggest asset is also the least liquid. Our vision is to allow every UK home-owner to get a fair offer on their house in minutes.

We have previously founded GoCardless and Songkick, are already on a faster growth trajectory than both and have raised just shy of £50 million from Europe’s leading VCs and entrepreneurs. Having done it before we know what it takes to be successful. We’re looking for exceptional people, excited by the prospect of building something that matters.

The role:

As our Head of Business Operations you will work closely with the CEO, COO, and other executive team members to drive and enable growth, focusing on our most important operational and strategic problems. You will work across the organisation and may design new processes to help scale our teams, analyse which cities to launch into after London or help launch new products.

We are looking for someone who can further shape the role of Business Operations and build out a team that delivers intellect and execution capabilities throughout the business where it is needed.

Key responsibilities:

As Head of the team you will be responsible for hiring and developing your team, acting as an enabler and creating leverage. We currently believe the best setup is for your team members to work autonomously on projects with the relevant executives.

On a day-to-day basis you will:

  • Be a thought partner for the team
  • Be an ambassador for Business Operations at Nested and judge where your team can best add value

You will also work on your own projects, where you will:

  • Lead operational projects that help other teams work effectively and efficiently, with a particular eye for improving processes as we scale
  • Design and manage the business and operational processes that make Nested tick
  • Support strategic decisions by identifying and performing analyses to make the right growth choices
  • Identify, implement and incubate new opportunities that grow the business
  • Incubate new teams whilst they are nascent

We think you’ll probably:

  • Have 5+ years experience in a highly strategic, analytical and operational role, either with leading consultancies or rapidly growing companies (even better if you have both!)
  • Have experience in leading and managing a team of outstanding individuals
  • Excel in tackling problems, analysing data and thinking from first principles
  • Work comfortably with a wide range of people and deal with many stakeholders
  • Have a bias towards execution, implementation and work with a process-oriented mindset
  • Be a natural communicator, and structure complex ideas in a simple way

Things which would be nice-to-haves:

Have a passion for property (e.g. have bought your own property or follow real estate markets)

Benefits:

Finally benefits! It wouldn’t be a job description without a benefits section.

  • Flexible working. Most of the team work from home a day a week (WFH Wednesdays). We care about if you do your job, not where
  • Generous option grant so you get to own a piece of the pie
  • Get some well-deserved rest with 27 days holiday + bank holidays
  • Budget (£3,000) for making sure you’ve got your perfect work set-up
  • Generous personal development budget, and dedicated company-wide learning days focused on employee growth (£1,000 per person per year)
  • Breakfast, coffee and snacks are all on hand in the office to keep you fuelled + monthly team events
  • Pension scheme (4% employer contribution)
  • Health insurance which includes gym discounts, health and dental care
  • Plus, if you’re ever buying or selling a home we’re pretty good at helping with this as well!

Salary range: £80-120k + Options. However, sometimes the perfect person is far more or less experienced than we anticipated and in these situations planned ranges go out the window.

Location: London
