Engineering Manager, Machine Learning

Atlanta

Mailchimp is a leading marketing platform for small business. We empower millions of customers around the world to build their brands and grow their companies with a suite of marketing automation, multichannel campaign, CRM, and analytics tools.

Our Data Science team builds features that make sense of the data created by Mailchimp’s millions of users and their billions of audience members. We apply data science to empower small businesses with insights, and we work closely with Mailchimp’s Engineering teams to make insights actionable for our customers.

We are looking for an experienced manager to join us and sit at the nexus of Mailchimp's Engineering and Data Science teams. The ideal candidate will be focused on enabling our teams of engineers and data scientists to do their best work. You will help distill product requirements and direction into well-defined projects for research and implementation. You will work closely with Product Management to identify and refine opportunities for data-driven features. You will understand techniques and technologies sufficiently to provide valuable direction and insight, but you will prefer enabling team members, rather than solving problems yourself.

  • Mentor and guide the professional and technical development of the team
  • Provide continuous feedback, recognize individual strengths, and address issues as needed for your team members

  • Collaborate with product managers, application engineers, data scientists, and others to define the vision for data science and machine learning at Mailchimp
  • Build cross-functional relationships with product managers, application engineers, data scientists, and others to understand and support data requirements
  • Drive data quality throughout the company
  • Work closely with the recruiting team to hire high potential candidates from diverse backgrounds

We'd love to hear from you if:

  • You have 5+ years of experience in Software Engineering, Data Science, or related fields
  • You have experience managing and scaling 5-10 person teams
  • You have strong project management skills
  • You have previous experience developing and deploying production-scale ML systems
  • You have a degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or equivalent experience

Skills and experience that are nice to have:

  • Python and associated data science/machine learning ecosystem
  • Keras, TensorFlow, and/or other machine learning/deep learning systems
  • Google Cloud Data platform: BigQuery, Dataflow, etc.
