At SOSA, we work at the intersection of the world’s leading organizations and the most innovative startups out there. That means our work culture takes the best of all worlds; the ambitions of the corporate world with the agility of a startup. We wear t-shirts to work but suit up when we need to.

If you’re a natural-born leader and a people person, have got your eyes and ears on the bustling tech ecosystem, and have experience managing a team with a strong background in business development and open innovation in the financial sector, you’ve arrived at the right place. As Head of Innovation at SOSA, you’ll work very closely with our VP of Corporate Innovation on the innovation team’s strategy and their day-to-day responsibilities.

  • Based in NYC or Tel Aviv
  • You have 6+ years of experience in management consulting or innovation positions in the financial sectors, preferably in corporations. 
  • Have exceptional interpersonal and organizational skills, are detail-oriented, highly organized, and have the ability to manage a team and multiple projects. 
  • Highly engaged in the tech ecosystem and maintain strong relationships with VCs, accelerators/incubators, corporations, and other strategic partners. 
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English (a must).
  • Proficiency in public speaking.
  • Looking to work in an environment that is welcoming, transparent, collaborative, challenging, high-paced, results-driven, and fun.

What you’ll do: 

  • Lead and manage all aspects of the financial corporate accounts.
  • Work closely with the research team to scope and manage all client deliverables, upholding strong relationships with corporate partners and provide seamless executions. 
  • Establish trusted relationships with SOSA’s corporate partners to achieve annual renewal targets. 
  • Lead and support strategic business development opportunities with current and potential partners to grow SOSA’s corporate innovation business.
  • Deliver accurate business metrics and monthly reports. 

Who we are:

SOSA is a global open innovation company.  We work with innovation teams in corporations, governments, and cities. We scout and validate startups in order to bring our clients the solutions they need to solve use cases, identify opportunities, or build new products. Think noise-canceling headphones but for the endless flow of startups. 

Since 2014, we’ve literally been in the room facilitating discussions between large organizations and tech companies. From the first touchpoint all the way to pilots, implementations, and investments, we bring our clients precisely the technologies they need to advance innovation.
