  • Ensure we build simple, elegant B2B offerings that deliver a B2C/app like experience that anchor us as the preferred partner for the translation community


To Be Successful You Will Have
  • *** Candidates should be aware that Lionbridge maintains a policy requiring all employees to be fully vaccinated. *** (Please see below for complete vaccination policy statement).
  • 10-15 years of demonstrated experiencing with building workflow solutions for the translation industry, with a focus on leveraging automation to drive simplicity
  • An ability to quickly synthesize information, and navigate from very high-level industry trends, to specific product features and details
  • Comfort working across a matrix organization, and experience growing/coaching a team of direct reports
  • An acute sense of how to secure buy in, adaption and adoption to simplify our offerings


In Return You Can Expect
  • To join an organization in the center of an industry that is evolving in an accelerated manner due to technology innovations and AI

  • To be part of a major organizational transformation towards a tech first led business
