Job Description

The Live Operations team exists to ensure every Caviar delivery goes as smoothly as possible. On demand food delivery is an incredibly difficult logistical challenge. By providing fast support to couriers, shepherding troubled orders, and monitoring the logistical health of all Caviar markets, we strive to make every diner experience remarkably unremarkable.

Caviar is looking for a Live Operations Manager who can be responsible for the operational health of Caviar’s network every day, every hour that diners need us. Your goal is to keep the team a well-oiled machine that works effectively and efficiently - hitting performance targets and resolving problems quickly while being ready to leap into action if an emergency arises. You’ll use just-in-time information to monitor individual markets, use predictive data to stay ahead of problems, and work cross-functionally to proactively address operational issues.

At Caviar, we care about more than just meeting KPIs. You will have the opportunity to plan and execute special projects that create measurable improvement in team effectiveness. You will collaborate with partners (both on other teams and externally) to drive product changes with meaningful business impact. You’ll operate in a highly autonomous environment where you’ll represent Live Ops’s needs, escalate and plan around potential risks and be an empowered decision-maker.


You will:

  • Make data-based recommendations for improving the efficiency and effectiveness of the team

  • Gather performance metrics for a range of sources and summarize in regular reports

  • Collaborate closely with Caviar’s Local Markets, Operations, and Product teams to analyze and solve partner needs, communicate best practices, and inform our business and product roadmap

  • Own and manage high impact projects, constantly looking for ways to improve Caviar live operations

  • Perform real-time analysis and problem-solving of orders to provide optimal solutions for Caviar stakeholders

  • Operate in a highly autonomous environment which empowers you to make decisions

  • Strategically brainstorm, collaborate, and implement operational improvements and efficiencies


You Have:

  • At least 2 years of professional work experience, preferably in Operations

  • Experience managing metrics, KPIs, and OKRs

  • A proven ability to get things done, manage your time and prioritize for impact

  • A knack for designing your efforts to scale through smart process and collaboration

  • The judgment to operate autonomously while collaborating closely with others

  • An ability to identify upstream blockers and prioritize solutions

  • BA/BS preferred (or equivalent work experience)

  • A deep love of amazing food, restaurants, and the desire to consistently provide an exceptional experience to stakeholders and customers, both internally and externally
