Company Description

Order.co is on a mission to simplify buying for businesses. We believe that it’s not just about what you buy, but how you buy it. Today’s purchase-to-pay process is riddled with complexity and missed opportunities for leverage. Our goal is to highlight that leverage through the use of our platform.

Order.co eliminates manual purchasing and payment tasks and gives your team one place to purchase, approve, track and pay for all the goods and services your business needs. With customizable budgets and reporting, operations and finance teams can take back control over the buying process and start saving time, saving money, and gaining clarity in how they buy.

Founded in 2016 and headquartered in New York City, Order.co oversees nearly half a billion dollars in annualized spend across hundreds of customers like WeWork, SoulCycle, and Lume. Order.co has raised $50M in funding from industry-leading investors like MIT, Stage 2 Capital, Rally Ventures, 645 Ventures, and more. Order.co has been proudly named as a 50 to Watch by Spend Matters and a Best Place to Work by BuiltIn.

They thrive thinking creatively and failing rapidly to develop optimal solutions. This candidate will also be able to demonstrate an ability to manage multiple, time-sensitive projects and competing priorities simultaneously, to work independently and incorporate input from across the company, and to drive projects to completion with minimal guidance and high attention to detail. Ideally, the candidate will also be prepared to communicate results and impacts, guide change management, and drive user adoption or be interested in developing that skillset.

  • Work with cross-functional stakeholders to translate business goals into actionable project goals, identify opportunities for process improvements and automation with them, and drive adoption of developed solutions
  • Lead your cross-functional partners through discovery, develop and manage project plans -including timelines, milestones, and deliverables- to launch high-impact process improvements through creative solutioning and deep user understanding
  • Proactively identify heavy operational workflows and implement measures to address any gaps or unnecessary manual steps in our processes
  • Coordinate with strategic finance to quantify cost reduction opportunities and develop prioritization across projects
  • Monitor and report on implemented project performance metrics to support and validate data-driven decisions and assumptions

Qualifications

  • Past internships or 1-2 years of experience engineering/operational design/product strategy
  • A self-organized, hands-on initiator who takes ownership and is process driven, motivated by solving complex problems, and comfortable with the idea that ‘done is better than perfect’

  • Technical Depth - we need someone who can work on a technical level and/or coordinate with developers where necessary
  • Comfortable with or able to learn SQL, Python, metabase, orchestration & AI tools and services, APIS
