We're looking for an experienced Data Scientist Manager to join a team responsible for designing and developing data-driven products and solutions for MapMyFitness and MyFitnessPal. This team joins cross functional teams to explore, build, ship, and own data-enriched products, unlocking the data and insights of our fitness brand and its consumers. We're passionate about data-driven approaches and techniques to drive innovation in our business.
Duties and Responsibilities
Our Data Scientist Managers are responsible for coaching and leading teams of talented data scientists as we deliver on our roadmap. To thrive in this role, you execute well in an agile environment where we'll depend on you to make pragmatic decisions, establish and use tight feedback loops, and take calculated risks based on your knowledge from collaborating with your peers. You've led teams before—either with direct reports or as a technical lead—and are comfortable delivering and receiving feedback with trust and candor. You know that your success is dependent on the success of your team, and you're committed to coach and serve a team of experienced data scientists.
You value pragmatic technical solutions, have experience scoping, developing, and operating analytical models using millions of daily transactions. Your primary tools are empathy, communication and a positive growth mindset. Our technology stack contains multiple programming languages (Java, Scala, and Python) as well as common technologies such as Spark, Hive, Kafka and S3. You don't need to be the most technical person in the room, but you have enough experience that you often ask good questions and raise interesting points for discussion in planning meetings and analytical model reviews. You care most deeply about helping your team succeed while loving the work that they do.
