Vice President, Client Success Using the only true AI application in HR technology,Arena is helping our clients create happier, more equitable, more stable workforces. Since beginning to scale in 2016, Arena Analytics has rapidly expanded across the country into over 1,200 facilities, evaluating over 3 million unique job applicants per year and successfully reducing employee turnover by a median of 38 percent across every job category.   By removing bias from the talent management process, we increase top-line revenue and decrease bottom-line costs for our clients. Our predictive analytics reveal talent not traditionally considered for positions; we leverage bias-fighting algorithms that measure and mitigate bias, incorporate performance data from recent hires rather than any potentially biased, employer-selected, favorite long-term employee data, and regularly meet with our clients to discuss what our data scientists are seeing.   As the VP for Client Success, you will partner with Arena’s clients to revitalize their process for hiring. Through your regular interactions with each client, you will be building the informational “translation layer” between our clients’ HR teams and their own hiring managers and operational leaders, using rich data to build stories, glean insights, and develop diverse, high-performing teams. In every interaction, you’ll be directly addressing a pervasive problem for most organizations – operational leaders complaining they don’t have enough “good people” while HR executives are overwhelmed with massive numbers of unproductive candidate interactions.   Your team will work at the vital intersection between our clients and the product, data science, and engineering teams at Arena. You’ll be developing models, analyses, and insights that illuminate potential paths to achieving clients’ business objectives. At Arena, we believe the labor market is fundamentally broken and we’re working hard to fix it. In most organizations, people still make talent decisions based on limited information. Resumes, pedigree, assessments, and personal connections have proven time and again to be ineffective at predicting actual job performance. These age-old processes reinforce bias and contribute little insight to guide either party in determining if they are a good match. Your work can help us bring a merciful end to those unfair, outdated, and ineffective approaches.   Key Responsibilities - Demonstrate value and build trust with clients, becoming a trusted strategic advisor for most difficult decisions. As you work through the everyday complexities inherent in our work, you will earn respect at every level of the client organizations, helping gain buy-in from HR, mid-level hiring managers, and senior executives alike. This level of rapport and partnership leads to revenue growth within accounts. - Build business cases, business models, and proof of value for Arena products and programs. Understand complex business issues, technical challenges, and industry trends and clearly communicate key messages to all levels within client organizations – field recruiters, HR and talent leadership, and operations leadership, as well as the C-suite. - Represent client interests and priorities within Arena to prioritize client deliverables among competing projects, balance client needs with business priorities, and articulate rationale behind decisions. Advise our engineering, sales, and data science teams on how to improve our service delivery capabilities. - Define, analyze, track, and improve key success metrics and identify trends and anomalies. Work with internal teams to understand factors impacting changes in results and develop solutions. Prepare and present reports and forecasts to client organizations.   Qualifications - Excellent communication and interpersonal skills. You are adept at building strong client relationships at the C-level and VP and director levels. Your problem-solving skills and ability to understand client needs ensure that contractual relationships are successful. - Experience with data science concepts and familiarity with products built on data and analytics. Excitement about the possibilities of applying sophisticated data science to change our world. - Experience in healthcare, acute care, or post-acute environments would be a plus, but we are also rapidly expanding into other business sectors. - Experience in an earlier stage technology business would be a plus, but we’re really looking for your propensity to thrive in a fast-paced and high-expectation environment. - Willingness and ability to travel to client sites (eventually).    Attributes - Emotional intelligence. You are approachable, relatable, and know how to read the room. You know when people are nodding their heads but not understanding, and you know how to create a safe space for people to express their true concerns. You know that deploying AI is a leap of faith for some organizations, and your customers know that you have their back. - Insatiable curiosity. You love to get to the bottom of complex issues and relish the big picture insights that arise from delving into the granular detail. You are driven by the desire to get to the right solution, no matter the difficulty. - Intellectual gravitas. You are undaunted by the unfamiliar and are equally comfortable working through a business issue with a client or creating a new solution with the engineering or data science teams. You respect the expertise of others and know that your own expertise is developing the translation layer between all parties. You are pragmatic and action-oriented, and you have the courage to be directive when necessary. - Business savvy. You are equally comfortable in the boardroom or working with a frontline hiring manager. You are equally effective in handling issues that arise from business matters, people, technology, or contracts.   What’s Attractive to the Right Candidate? - You will be solving one of the most vexing problems in any organization – hiring the right people and predicting who will be successful on the job. And by helping organizations connect people with meaningful work without being distracted by biases and incorrect assumptions, you will also contribute to a society that is more productive, more fair, and more inclusive of marginalized populations. - You will help hiring managers see hiring differently and help organizations make dramatic improvements in their productivity, worker satisfaction, organizational diversity, customer satisfaction, and financial performance. - You will be working at the very forefront of AI, collaborating with exceptionally talented, amazingly supportive colleagues who have a proven track record of success doing precisely this kind of work. - Every day you will be solving unique and complex technical challenges on a scale matched by few companies. And we’re just getting started. - We offer competitive salaries, benefits, and equity.   To Apply Use the "Apply" button on this page or simply email your resume to Bob Corlett at resumes@staffingadvisors.com with “Arena – VP, Client Success #2021-2635 SA” as the subject of the email.
