Chief Operating Officer (COO)

Your best work with great people
← All jobs
This role is available for the following location:
Oslo, Norway 🇳🇴

Our CEO isn’t perfect (he knows that). Our company isn't perfect (we know that). That’s why Memory is looking for an exceptional individual to come on board as COO to accelerate our growth as a world-class company. It's a difficult job to explain, but we're looking for a Sheryl Sandberg to a Mark Zuckerberg. A Tim Cook to a Steve Jobs. A master executioner to a product visionary.

We know the direction we want to go in and we thrive in breaking down doors to get there. But we need someone to help design and orchestrate the execution, making sure we get everyone through the same door with the urgency and skills required. Our team loves to disrupt and move fast, but with a 50-person-strong team that will quickly grow to 100, there are a lot of moving pieces.

You've probably run a company before or held very top leadership positions. You're very organized and the departments you've led run like clockwork. You know how to scale. You're better qualified than our CEO in many areas, and are ready to have healthy debate and discussion with him to create the very best company possible.

Working first and foremost with our CEO, you will also work closely with the rest of the executive team in a highly collaborative environment on key business, financial and operational routines, and special initiatives. You need to be data-driven, results-oriented, a great team player, and looking to build something incredible with us.
