Job Description

But it didn’t stop there. They engineered Snowflake to power the Data Cloud, where thousands of organizations unlock the value of their data with near-unlimited scale, concurrency, and performance. This is our vision: a world with endless insights to tackle the challenges and opportunities of today and reveal the possibilities of tomorrow.

We are looking for an outstanding Senior Engineering Manager to join, build, and lead the newly-formed Machine Learning Platform team, which is at the core of Snowflake’s ML strategy.
