Coach Experience Manager



People & HR
Remote, OR, USA · Remote
Posted on Tuesday, June 18, 2024

Let’s face it, a company whose mission is human transformation better have some fresh thinking about the employer/employee relationship.

We do. We can’t cram it all in here, but you’ll start noticing it from the first interview.

Even our candidate experience is different. And when you get an offer from us (and accept it), you get way more than a paycheck. You get a personal BetterUp Coach, a development plan, a trained and coached manager, the most amazing team you’ve ever met (yes, each with their own personal BetterUp Coach), and most importantly, work that matters.

This makes for a remarkably focused and fulfilling work experience. Frankly, it’s not for everyone. But for people with fire in their belly, it’s a game-changing, career-defining, soul-lifting move.

Join us and we promise you the most intense and fulfilling years of your career, doing life-changing work in a fun, inventive, soulful culture.

If that sounds exciting—and the job description below feels like a fit—we really should start talking.

The Coach Experience Manager will lead the team through some of its most ambiguous, complex, and strategic challenges: Network Management, new product solutions, and world-building for our Coach Community.

About the work:

There are three key pillars to the role of Coach Experience Manager:

  1. Build business intelligence
  2. Product design and launch
  3. World building

Understanding the complexities of our 4000+ global Coach network helps us make wiser decisions about how we manage and nourish this population.

What you’ll do

  • Partner with Analysts and Data Scientists to understand macro-and micro-trends that help us raise the bar of excellence for Coaches.
  • Conduct novel research that generates insights for us to action on.
  • Rally multiple stakeholders to drive solutions based on research and analysis.

  • Surface the most essential coach feedback to influence product iterations.
  • Explore the possibilities of AI to enrich Coach experience and effectiveness.

3. World building

We’ve worked hard to build a sense of connection and belonging in our community, but we’re not satisfied. Our aspiration is to ignite a movement that propels our mission into its next horizon.

What you’ll do

  • Establish world-building layer on top of our community that helps Coaches feel connected, engaged, and excited about the future we are building
  • Partner with Coach Community Manager to create and execute a micro-community strategy that gives every coach a feeling of intimacy, while still being just one degree from a trusted BetterUp employee.

If you have some or all of the following, please apply:

  • You push the pace of the work and the team without sacrificing quality.
  • You possess a .com brain and a .org heart—able to balance the tensions of peak performance and humanity with grace.
