DATA

What we do

Our mission is to provide a world class platform to empower the business to leverage data to enhance, monitor, and support our products. We are responsible for data ingestion systems, processing pipelines, and various data stores all operating in the cloud. We operate at petabyte scale, and support near real time use cases as well as more traditional batch approaches.

What you'll do

You will be the vision holder for the data organization. We are very early in the process of migrating from a provider of data services to a data platform. You should be a strong communicator who is comfortable working across all aspects of the business to solicit feedback and requirements. You will work closely with the engineering leads across the data organization to prioritize and plan out the roadmap while refining the overall vision and strategy of the group. You will ultimately be responsible for driving a better experience for everyone in the company around data by helping to provide clearer onboarding, simpler paths to integration with data in flight or at rest, and enabling the business to make better use of the wealth of data we have.

In this role, you will

  • Define longer-term product direction and strategy for data engineering and the data platform.
  • Define success metrics for the key business and technical objectives in alignment with internal stakeholders.
  • Own the roadmap for the data engineering organization. This group is responsible for data ingestion all the way through landing it in a queryable format. This means pipelines, system interfaces, databases, data products, and ETL work to support the analysts.
  • Work closely with stakeholders and internal studios to ensure we’re working towards solutions that are easy to use and empower the rest of the business to properly leverage all of our data. Foster alignment with partner teams and ensure dependencies are being tracked and managed against.
  • Work collaboratively with engineering as an advocate for the needs of our internal stakeholder, balancing internal development with vendor provided solutions to create a cohesive data platform.
  • Foster a culture of product management within the data organization. This is a new discipline within data, and the ideal candidate is excited about establishing the foundations for product management on the team.

What we're looking for

  • 5+ years of experience in a mix of big data and product management roles.
  • Good technical understanding of batch and streaming data systems, familiarity with cloud based data warehouses, and exposure to core big data open source tools (Kafka, Spark, Hive, etc.)
  • Ability to work across different disciplines and teams to build a cohesive product vision for our data platform.
  • Comfortable dealing with ambiguity and using both qualitative and quantitative methods to define a prioritized roadmap. Good at distilling order from chaos.
  • Ideal candidate has experience driving change and helping to integrate product into an engineering-driven organization.
