General Manager at Knotel
San Francisco, CA, US

Working alongside our Chief Operating Officer and the Global Markets team, the General Manager will be charged with growing and managing Knotel’s presence in San Francisco.  S/he will lead the team responsible for evangelizing and operationalizing Knotel’s business, including hiring and supervising sales, operations, and customer success teams toward results. This is a critical role in a multi-billion dollar market that will be at the forefront of our growth strategy as we continue our expansion across the West Coast.

What You’ll Do

  • Own a P&L that encompasses the entire San Francisco market
  • Build and scale the team, focusing on sales, operations, and customer success
  • Develop and maintain KPIs that drive the team toward unflinching goals of revenue generation, square foot expansion, and tight operations
  • Build strong cross-functional relationships with senior stakeholders at HQ and across other markets to trade best practices across borders
  • Represent the company to real estate owners, brokers, press, and other key stakeholders in the market

Who You Are

You’re an experienced city manager and P&L owner with demonstrated commercial instincts. You have a track record of exceeding revenue targets, building well-rounded teams, and doing whatever it takes to move the business forward. You enjoy setting audacious goals but aren’t removed from the ground level. Your ideal role is a blend of operations and strategy that bend the curve of what’s possible. More than anything, you’re excited to disrupt one most of the outdated industries that literally powers the ways companies work.  You also have the following:

  • 7-10 years of experience in managing teams toward business goals; previous consulting, market launching, and/or startup experience strongly preferred
  • Demonstrated problem solving skills to remove roadblocks and empower teams to perform at the highest levels
  • Lateral mindset that is still at home with data and inside a balance sheet
  • Desire to thrive in ambiguous work environments with moving targets
