At Linear, we are creating a new standard for modern software development. We are building the tools that empower the next generation of high-impact companies to do their best work. Linear’s project management software is designed based on the practices and processes that distinguish world-class product teams from the rest: relentless focus, fast execution, and a commitment to the quality of craft.
Founded in 2019, Linear has become the tool of choice for high-performance teams to build their products. A fully remote company from the start, our team is distributed across the US, Latin America, and Europe. No matter where we come from, we are makers at our core. We love new challenges and care deeply about the quality of our work.
We're looking for a Head of Product Operations to manage and grow our support team and mature our processes to deliver the best support for our engineering customers as we scale. At Linear, support is an in-house function, tightly integrated with the rest of the company to provide best-in-class experience and response time to our customers. As part of the team, you will work both with leadership to lead the function and scale it through better tooling, practices, and communication. You should also be comfortable helping the team with day-to-day activities and filling in frontline support if required. You'll work cross-functionally to share customer feedback and insights, contribute to our technical documentation, and engage our customer community via social channels. If you enjoy enabling startups and top development teams to build the next generation of innovative products, we'd love to connect with you.
Please note: We are an equal opportunity employer and remote-only company. At this time, we can support hiring within the US and most EU time zones. EST/CST time zone is required for this role.
