The Role The Sr. Sales Compensation Strategy & Operations Manager is a strategic business partner who leads worldwide incentive compensation strategy and the compensation design-to-deployment process for a specific business unit(s). This role is a hybrid of traditional jobs in compensation, finance, sales operations, and strategic planning and is crucial to supporting the explosive growth of the Salesforce sales teams.
