Amanda Taylor of Commit
The new role was created specifically to support Commit’s operational efficiencies in the US and internationally, as demand for its tech research & development (R&D) services and new Cloud of People team-building solution continues to grow.
In 2021, Commit reportedly more than doubled its number of skilled employees, grew global revenue by over 30% and increased its US client base more than six fold, all in addition to the launch of its new transformative solution, Cloud of People.
The need for Commit’s services has never been greater, as the gap between demand and supply for skilled tech talent is rising rapidly. Since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, IT and software development job openings have increased by 119% in the US alone, with the potential of contributing to more than $8 trillion (€7.06 trillion) in unrealised annual revenue by 2030.
“Tech companies today face enormous talent shortages, increased demands and rising recruitment and employee retention costs. Amidst these challenges, Commit’s ability to rapidly, and affordably, build highly qualified development teams has helped countless organisations make their vision a reality,” says Max Nirenberg, chief revenue officer and managing director of Commit USA. “As we continue to grow our business and support more clients’ innovations, Amanda’s unique experience with both operations at scale and people management across multiple continents makes her a perfect fit to take our operations to the next level.”
In the newly established role of head of Global RevOps, Taylor will oversee the unification of several core departments, including sales, marketing and delivery operations, to drive predictable revenue and ensure transparency, operational effectiveness and a collaborative culture. In addition to optimising a diverse array of growing departments and delivery demands, Taylor will also streamline and expedite the execution of transformative new key initiatives, technologies and tools, which will greatly expand Commit’s revenue potential and customer service capabilities.
