Overview

Overview

The real economy employs 3 billion people in frontline jobs, yet frontline teams are still left to choose between paper and Excel or decade-old workforce management solutions to take care of the most important part of their businesses – their people.

 

Enter Sona, the Frontline Operating System; an end-to-end platform to manage a shift-based workforce and empower its teams. Sona upgrades the functionality you expect from any workforce management software – including scheduling, time & attendance, HR, and Payroll – with industry-specific plugins, dedicated features to empower staff, and a consumer-grade experience that simplifies frontline work for everyone.

 

In just two years, we’ve already made a deep impact on the lives of tens of thousands of frontline workers and the operation of their organisations, grown the team to 80+, and following our recent $27.5m Series A fundraise, have secured the backing of notable VC’s like Felicis, Northzone, Gradient Ventures (Google), SpeedInvest, Antler, and Notion Capital plus angels like Tom Blomfield (Monzo).

 

It’s a hugely exciting time to be joining the team, as we’re still small enough that you’ll have a significant impact on the company, growth trajectory and culture, but large enough that we have a great structure, experienced leaders and world-class benefits in place (such as being fully remote and flexible, and only working 4.5 days a week). More on working at Sona here.

 

About the Role

 

As a Project Manager in our Implementation team, you will be responsible for running implementations of Sona’s solutions; from start to finish, ensuring delivery meets our scope commitments and timelines.

 

You will work closely with customers across varying sectors to understand their business, building strong partnerships and focusing on delivery at every turn, with a core mission of delivering your portfolio of implementations within an agreed budget and timeline, while consistently keeping sight of the customer’s goals and success metrics.

Working at Sona

 

We take our health and mental health seriously, believing that we can only perform to our best when we are healthy, happy, and in control of when, where, and how we work. That’s why we’re fully remote and everyone works a 4.5 day week (you choose when you take the half day) with a fully flexible schedule.

 

We balance this with regular virtual stand-ups and all-hands so we’re all aligned, and paid-for, in-person meet-ups so you can get to know your colleagues.
