What do we do?

Paddle offers SaaS companies a completely different approach to their payment infrastructure. Instead of assembling and maintaining a complex stack of payments-related apps and services, we’re a Merchant of Record for our customers. That means we take away 100% of the pain of payment fragmentation. It’s faster, safer, cheaper, and, above all, way better.

We’re backed by investors including KKR, FTV Capital, Kindred, Notion, and 83North and serve over 3000 software sellers in 245 territories globally.

The Role:

As the Head of GTM Business Operations, you'll support and accelerate the strategic efforts of sales, marketing, finance, and customer success to optimise revenue generation and operational efficiency across Paddle. Your role will involve aligning processes, technologies, and teams to enhance the entire revenue lifecycle, from lead acquisition to customer retention.

With both a strategic and analytical mindset, you'll extract actionable insights from data to drive informed decision-making, accurate forecasting, and revenue growth opportunities. Through meticulous attention to detail and leading with a mindset of cross functional collaboration, you'll streamline workflows, implement scalable processes, and refine performance metrics helping Paddle accelerate its growth journey.

What you'll do:

  • Partner with leaders across the organisation to build and optimise end-to-end commercial operations, ensuring data integrity and providing a single source of truth for sales, marketing, customer success, and finance

  • Develop and maintain detailed revenue analytics and reporting, providing actionable insights to support data-driven decision-making and for effective financial and commercial forecasting and planning

  • Identify and implement key requirements to optimise the utilisation of Salesforce CRM and other revenue-related technologies to ensure accurate tracking of customer and prospect activities, and visibility into pipeline management

  • Build a deal desk to enhance overall deal management, pricing approval and deal closure workflows as well as contract administration

  • Oversee preparation and administration of sales compensation plans, including quotas, territories, and plan enhancements

  • Align Revenue Operations strategy with company objectives and effectively communicate to stakeholders, ensuring clarity on requirements, impact, risks, and progress of priorities and initiatives

We'd love to hear from you:

  • A self-starter, motivated and player-coach who enjoys rolling up their sleeves and doing the work, along with building and managing a team effectively in a high growth company

  • 5+ years of experience leading BussOps,RevOps and GTM operations teams for fast-growth software/SaaS companies and demonstrating success in supporting global commercial efforts

  • Knowledge of Salesforce CRM and other revenue-related technologies to optimise the utilisation of the GTM tech stack

  • Strategic thinking and commercial mindset driven by data-driven insights to develop actionable plans and address challenges and opportunities across the business

  • Ability to identify and address complex problems with a first principles approach, clearly articulating root causes and recommending solutions, while also considering current and future needs

  • Proficiency in driving projects to completion, organising and prioritising work for self and teams, and maintaining execution and urgency in work processes

  • Proven experience working cross-functionally at multiple organisational levels, including executives, to develop processes, solve problems, and identify new strategies
