Job Description

Badgeville, Inc., is looking for a Platform Operations Manager. Are we looking for you?
We build the leading SaaS platform for gamifying and measuring behavior across the web, mobile, and applications, serving tens of millions of requests per day. You’ve been a leader in hosting a mid- to large-scale hosted platform, have had proven success driving full-lifecycle process and automation for hosted runtime programs, can do the work as well as delegate it to others, and you know your stuff. This just might be a match. Our motivated, talented operations team supports and helps build our cloud- and data center–based SaaS company. We’re growing fast. We need a leader for this team who can keep us rock-solid and move our infrastructure forward as quickly as we are. Someone who’s smart, passionate and who wants to be in the lead every day.

Do you love brand-new offices featuring overstocked kitchens, games & outings, bike & jogging paths, unbeatable views and ridiculous gyms with climbing walls? Sure — we’ve got all of those. But you want all of that while you get to work with the latest systems in one of the hottest emerging markets around. You want to be in a position where the way you lead your team determines how the company performs every day. That’s why you want to be at Badgeville.
