Operations Manager


Grammarly is excited to offer a remote-first hybrid working model. Team members work primarily remotely in the United States, Canada, Ukraine, Germany, or Poland. Certain roles have specific location requirements to facilitate collaboration at a particular Grammarly hub.

All roles have an in-person component: Conditions permitting, teams meet 2–4 weeks every quarter at one of Grammarly’s hubs in San Francisco, Kyiv, New York, Vancouver, and Berlin, or in a workspace in Kraków. This flexible approach gives team members the best of both worlds: plenty of focus time along with in-person collaboration that fosters trust and unlocks creativity.

Grammarly team members in this role must be based in the United States, and they must be able to collaborate in person 2 weeks per quarter, traveling if necessary to the hub(s) where the team is based.

Additionally, you will begin managing internal knowledge bases and communications. Lastly, you will begin driving the Freelancer Editor recruiting process from end to end.
  3. By month six, you will identify priority areas for improvement to streamline operations by consolidating features across annotation systems currently in use. You will also own and grow community initiatives to drive team-wide engagement for Editors and Editorial specialists.
