  • Overview

    We are looking for an experienced engineering manager to facilitate our Data Science team’s delivery of data products. You will be focused on the execution of this roadmap and ensuring quality work from the Data Science team that implements and deploys machine learning models into our product.

    As the team's manager, you will ensure effective communication within the team and to partners in other departments at Guru. You should be comfortable working with a small team and being efficient with your resources. As our investment in data science grows, we will also look to you to create and own the hiring process that builds out our Data Science team going forward.

    This job is not only about how well you lead the team; it’s about how you lend your positivity and presence, combined with your skillset to an energized environment and highly collaborative team. Strong sense of humor required, sarcasm detection skills a plus.


    • Closely monitor and track the status of the Data Science Roadmap.
    • Use the expertise of the Data Scientists and Product Managers to help prioritize the Data Science Roadmap.
    • Advocate for additional resources (time, money, people, etc) based on recommendations from the Data Scientists.
    • Advocate for any data maintenance tasks that need to be prioritized outside of the Data Science team function - bad data, buggy event capturing, etc.
    • Ensure good internal communication between Data Science team members to reduce duplicative efforts.
    • Ensure good external communication of the status of Data Science product to maintain tight alignment with the rest of Engineering and Product Management.
    • Create and run the team's hiring process, leveraging the Data Scientists to assist in resource identification and applicant evaluation.
    • Build a viable and repeatable recruiting process for hiring all levels of Data Scientists and ML Engineers.


    • 3-5 years of experience managing a product team.
    • You should have familiarity with data science teams. It’s a bonus if you’ve worked directly as a data scientist or built a product with data science/machine learning.
    • You are business focused. You are able to compromise to achieve business goals while considering time and budget.
    • You are a strong communicator. You have a positive attitude and are empathetic.
    • You are self-motivated. You identify and solve problems with little or no guidance.
    • You demonstrate self-awareness and a desire to improve.
    • You excel in a dynamic startup environment.
    • You work well with others and are a great teammate.
