Who we are:

  • Our name is inspired by Theodore Roosevelt’s ‘Citizenship in a Republic’ speech, which pays homage to the ‘(hu)man in the Arena’. To us, entering the Arena means committing oneself fully and accepting the risk of failure in the pursuit of an audacious, worthy cause.

  • We’re a close-knit tribe of scientists and builders exploring the boundaries of how artificial intelligence can benefit humanity. If you share our passion for delving deep into real-world problems and solving them with fully autonomous AI, join us in the Arena.

What we do:

  • Arena empowers businesses across industries to make high frequency, critical path decisions fully autonomous. Our products have helped some of the world’s largest CPG companies transform their sales and supply chains into increasingly autonomous, self-learning systems — unlocking efficiencies and resulting in better, more affordable consumer experiences.

  • But autonomous selling is just the beginning. Arena knows that Autonomy can help organizations tackle much more, from delivering critical goods and services more affordably, sustainably, and equitably to the world, to reducing green premiums on renewable energy to compete more effectively with fossil fuels.

How you will contribute:

  • You will embed into our global enterprise customers and prospects to diagnose their business needs, identify pain points, and strategize how Arena’s foundational technology capabilities and products could be applied to solve those problems

  • You will partner directly with our CEO and Enterprise Product Leads to thoughtfully prepare and present materials for executive proposals, pitches, and check-ins

  • You will support strategy and impact assessments related to our business and specific-customer analyses to help target Arena’s investments

  • You will work directly across functions of the company, from product to engineering, and contribute in other capacities within Arena as needed

Required Qualifications:

  • Working full-time in our office in NYC

  • Eagerness to travel domestically and internationally

  • A sincere drive to understand our enterprise customers and dig deep into their business

  • The ability to independently create highly polished, client-ready presentations and pitch materials

  • Experience working directly with enterprise executives

  • Being well informed on AI technology developments

It would be great if you have:

  • A passion and optimism for the future of machine learning and AI

  • An eagerness to thrive in ambiguity

  • Sincere interest in understanding not only our product, but our technology
