COO Role Description
We’re looking for a collaborative and results-oriented COO, looking to scale one of the fastest-growing startups in Scandinavia - ever. Your job will be to lead, scale and run a stellar operations function. You will be responsible for ensuring our teams meet daily operations goals, while setting the strategic direction to ensure we meet Carla’s long term goals.
Carla is growing at the speed of light, and we are currently looking for an experienced COO to join the Stockholm HQ and our management team. Since Carla will soon expand both vertically and geographically, we are looking for someone to support us in this exciting growth phase.
Carla’s mission is to make more people drive electric cars. Everything we do is built upon combining customer obsession, technology, and physical infrastructure. Within the Operations team, there are currently three main functions: Production of cars (from inspection to repairs to photography), Logistics (pick-up and deliveries) and Support. As we are building tools and capabilities in-house, we are on a constant look out to also commercialize those by offering them to other companies and end-consumers. Your task will be to ensure that our teams have the right strategies, tools and resources in place to make this happen - always with a focus on cost, lead time and most importantly: customer experience.
The Operations team currently consists of approximately 50 people, and is not only the core and heart of Carla, but also the fastest-growing and biggest team in the company. Carla is a scale-up where some things are in place, others are not. We are looking for someone who knows what great looks like, and who is exceptional at leading others, but at the same time is not afraid of rolling up their sleeves when things need to get done. Last but not least, we are also looking for a new member to our management team, to help us take Carla to the next level.
