Who We Are Looking For:
You have experience managing a team of technical experts along with a proven track record of shipping large scale big data or machine learning software.

You can leverage this background to lead your data scientists and engineers to solve real-world business problems. At the same time, you have a practical mindset using the more appropriate technique for the problem, whether that be a simple linear regression or a LSTM.
As a strong communicator, you are comfortable interacting with a variety of peers such as product managers, data scientists and other engineering leads knowing that the software your team ships fits into a larger system. You have proven ability to work with others through ambiguous situations and you are proactive at identifying potential problems before they become issues.
Who You Are:
- Masters/PhD degree or equivalent in Computer Science, Engineering, Mathematics or related field
- Proven track record of leading a team of data scientists and/or engineers to ship large complex scalable systems/applications in a fast-paced environment
- Strong familiarity with various machine learning & statistical techniques
- Ability to communicate clearly with technical and non-technical stakeholders at all levels
