About the Role 

We’re on a mission to help everyone find a home they love while making the search simple and painless. Together, we can change the narrative around what it means to be a renter. And while we have grown very quickly over the past few years, your job will be to take our data infrastructure and architecture to the next level, making data an internal strategic advantage.

Reporting to the Director of Engineering, you will be responsible for owning the data architecture, partnering with groups across the organization to democratize data. As the Engineering Manager, Data, you will own the roadmap of our data strategy, driving a scalable data system for measuring key metrics pertaining to our business drivers, enable smart data governance and ensure data is timely, reliable and maintainable.

Here’s what you’ll do as part of the team:

  • Drive the tactical execution of the Data Roadmap
  • Be player and coach as you guide a team of data engineers to build and scale our data platform(s)
  • Hire great talents and mentor engineers to build a high performing engineering team
  • Partner with key stakeholders (Product, Design, Engineering, Analysts, Business Owners) across the organization to build accurate estimates, plans, specs, and backlog priorities
  • Improve processes to make the team efficient
  • Be responsible for the quality of the team’s work
  • Evaluate and select 3rd party tools, services, and libraries, when applicable

And here is what’s in it for you:

  • Massive impact and visibility: You’ll have a ton of visibility at all levels of the company. You will be helping everyone from the sales people making better use of data during their pitch to the CEO being more impactful with the right use of data.
  • Career development: We’re always growing, and will expect your scope & responsibilities to grow alongside your impact.
  • Encouraged to explore new technologies and to adopt them in our product development.
  • Empowered to participate in the whole development cycle, and drive important product decisions.
  • Meaningful impact: Homes are core to all of us - they’re not just a big financial responsibility; homes are a place of safety and shelter, as well as a place where renters can hope to launch their hopes and dreams. Finding a home is a daunting, emotional process, and your work will make a real difference in renters’ lives.
