looking for a job title
Posted by: bazookaman
Date: June 13, 2022 10:50AM
The owner and I were discussing the need for something we could only refer to as a "Digital Operations Manager". That role exists, but it seems more related to Marketing. We're looking for the person that oversees the digital "glue" that connects all our other departments. So they would work with Accounting, Sales, Marketing, Warehouse, Customer Service, etc. And they would control, suggest, or manage the implementation of anything digital. From routing software, to marketing automation, to automated retrieval systems, as well as how best to connect them.

We just don't know what the title is to search for more info. There's Digital Operations, which again, seems more Marketing focused. CTO or CIO are more straight-up IT. Just looking for some input from folks I know have been around longer than me.

"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

This is typically part of an IT Manager's or a CTO's responsibility.



It is what it is.

It is digital operations, but you need to stratify the current position: Coordinator, Manager, Director, Supervisor.

edit: not necessarily those titles, or in that order

I think you are looking for, Chief Operations Officer.
If you decide to tweak it, leave "Chief" in the title since it's baddass.

Digital Interconnection Manager?

Internal Digital Communications Manager?

It does kind of sound like Chief Technical Officer. Deputy/Assistant Chief Technical Officer?

Who do you report to? How many people work in the organization?

Thanks for all the input. We don't want to overshadow the owner though. He is the HMFIC.

Well the owner's title is Owner. There's nothing that can overshadow that.

This ^. We all work for the IT people. We only pretend they work for us but they are the ones who make all the decisions.

Thanks. It's a weird role. I get the references to IT and CTO and such. But in this case, IT would be more of a tool in this user's toolbox. IT tends to be more...practical. As in, it works! Project done! We need to incorporate a bit more creativity in the process.

You're introducing a lot of prejudice into how you're judging techies. Dull plodding nerds don't last long in IT. That's a dumb movie trope.

...Call it IS if you want. "Director of Information Systems."

With all the automation stuff you reference, you might refine your talent-search with key words like "Online," "Digital Creative," "Systems Integration" and "Database Administration."

...If you aren't willing to pay a premium for all that talent you're demanding, you're falling into another trope: The employer who wants someone with years of experience with every technology known to mankind, a go-getter who takes the lead and will put in the extra hours, will sacrifice his family and health and sanity, and will work for peanuts and breadcrumbs.
