Marketplace Delivery Director

Guild is hiring for its Marketplace Delivery team to lead cross-functional workstreams as Guild launches new engagements with employer partners -- like Walmart, Disney, Lowe’s and others -- and academic partners -- like the University of Arizona, Southern New Hampshire University, Penn Foster and more.

Guild is revolutionizing the role that employers play in educating America and one of Denver's fastest growing startups. Through employer sponsored education programs, Guild is increasing economic mobility for working adults in America and providing education and support to help every student survive and thrive in the economy of tomorrow. To accomplish this, Guild operates a curated marketplace of employers and academic institutions, where employees can explore and enroll in educational programs that align to the strategic needs of their employer.

In operating this marketplace, Guild invests heavily in each additional partner that is added. As a result, strong team members are needed to get partners launched through a deeply cross-functional effort.

As a senior member of the Marketplace Delivery team, you will:

  • Supervise a team of project managers charged with supporting Guild’s Learning Marketplace by leading cross-functional teams in the execution of new partner implementations, migrations, and expansions
  • Provide direct oversight to the project team during the full lifecycle of the implementation, acting as the critical issue point for both the partner and Guild delivery team
  • Become a subject matter specialist in partner onboarding at Guild; speak to all aspects of partner launch, including strategic vision, design, implementation processes, and handoffs/interactions with other teams.
  • Proactively identify and manage trade-offs and risks across workstreams, and make strategic recommendations to leadership as relevant.
  • Work cross-functionally with internal teams to ensure that Guild and our partners have shared expectations across the board
  • Join a team committed to building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment that you’d support every day

You are a strong fit for this role if you have:

  • Positive, a “can do” demeanor and you thrive in ambiguous environments
  • 10+ years as a strategic leader with exposure to sophisticated B2B/B2B2C implementations
  • Bachelor’s degree in engineering or equivalent technical experience and Bachelor's; MBA is a plus
  • Deep understanding and strong compassion for the challenges faced by both technical and go-to-market functions when selling to Fortune 500 enterprises
  • Experience balancing multiple parallel work streams in constantly evolving, cross-functional environments where high-touch, long-term relationships are essential for success
  • The ability to develop positive relationships, encourage confidence, and communicate optimally while balancing confidence, modesty, and tact
  • A knack for “connecting the dots” and identifying trends, with truly outstanding ability to synthesize sophisticated information for a broad set of partners and deliver strong story-telling
  • You can influence partners—especially executive audiences—through data, well structured arguments, and compelling narratives
  • Strong organization and team leadership skills, with attention to detail and the ability to keep track of both the high level progress and the small details
  • A bias toward structured, analytical, systems and critical thinking; able to simplify and present sophisticated problems and issues in an easy-to-understand manner
  • A history of building organizational culture, giving and receiving feedback, and supporting the development of team members
  • Something else? Wonderful, we’re curious to learn more about you!

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Since my humble beginning as a Guild Intern, I have had opportunities afforded to me that stretch me in ways that align with my values and push me to be a little uncomfortable while still having welcome support. I’m now in a position where I get to learn first-hand from experts that I don’t believe I was qualified for before working at Guild.

Paco

Senior Associate of University Operations

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

My team works on ensuring that new users can find what they need and engage with our platform easily. Many of the technical challenges we face involve scaling the early-stage version of Guild’s app into something more flexible for our next growth phase. We deal with the difficult (but fascinating!) tradeoffs of these decisions every day.
