Job Description

There is only one Data Cloud. Snowflake’s founders started from scratch and designed a data platform built for the cloud that is effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. 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’re looking for a Senior Data Science Manager to lead our Experience Data Science team in the Product organization.

The main areas that this team will cover are user experience (UI, growth platform, analyst/admin/data engineer experience) and data marketplace.

  • User experience is essential to make it simple for our customers to complete over 1 billion SQL queries everyday both fast and accurately.
  • Data marketplace makes it easy with a click of a button to get access to a wide range of 3rd party data instead of having to contact a sales representative at a data vendor and setup and maintain a complex API.

All the projects above allow the data scientist to work on very large datasets, and a variety of diverse interesting projects that span the domains of data engineering, analytics, statistics, and machine learning.

In this role, you will both immediately lead a small team (4 data scientists), and be hands-on as a tech lead in this area. The manager will interact frequently with senior management, product managers, and engineering managers. The ability to effectively communicate complex technical ideas to a wide audience is crucial.

IN THIS ROLE YOU WILL:

  • Serve as the tech lead/manager of the Experience Data Science team in the Product organization, constantly using data to both improve the product and decision making.
  • Mentor team members in areas of data engineering, analytics, statistics, and machine learning.
  • Be hands on. You will have a project/s in which you are the primary data scientist responsible for the work. This will allow you to contribute both as a manager, and as an individual contributor.
  • Partner with technical and business stakeholders to not only come up with solutions to stated problems, but encourage and enable the team to develop bottoms up ideas.
  • Maximize the impact of the team, by making sure the data scientists have the best and correct context, and ensuring their skill sets are properly matched to the project.
  • Grow the team, when appropriate. Convince job candidates on why Snowflake, and the product data science team is an awesome place to work

QUALIFICATIONS:

  • Masters Degree in Math/Statistics, Engineering, Computer Science, Science or related quantitative field
  • 15+ years experience as a Data Scientist
  • 6+ years of experience in building, managing, and leading a high-performing data science team
  • Experience in using data science to optimize the user experience.
  • Expert in SQL and Python.
  • Advanced knowledge/experience in machine learning. You not only know how to use a given algorithm, but you also know the math and statistics of how the algorithm works.
  • Ability to communicate and influence complex ideas to cross-functional stakeholders.

Snowflake is growing fast, and we’re scaling our team to help enable and accelerate our growth. We are looking for people who share our values, challenge ordinary thinking, and push the pace of innovation while building a future for themselves and Snowflake.
