Product Manager - Data Science
Simon Data was founded in 2015 by a team of successful serial entrepreneurs. We're a data-first marketing platform startup, and we approach our work seriously; we tackle problems in a scrappy and disruptive fashion, yet we build for scale to support our clients at big data volume.
We are the first and only enterprise customer data platform with a fully-integrated marketing cloud. Moving beyond the limitations of both categories, Simon’s platform empowers businesses to leverage enterprise-scale big data and machine learning to power customer communications in any channel. Simon’s unique approach allows brands to develop incredible personalization capabilities without needing to build and maintain massive bespoke data infrastructure.
Our culture is rooted in organizational transparency, empowering individuals, and an attitude of getting things done. If you want to be a valuable contributor on a team that cultivates these core values we would love to hear from you.
As a Product Manager, Data Science at Simon Data you will guide our suite of predictive products from problem through idea and implementation to delivery and success. You will be responsible for closely consulting with clients to match our predictive marketing solutions and data science capabilities to solve business problems. In this role, you will identify common use cases that can be fulfilled with one or more of our self-service predictive products and provide education to the client on best practices. In other cases, you will recognize broader business problems needing specific analysis, and collaborate with engineers to craft the right solution. This position requires a deep understanding of data science and machine learning, combined with the desire to be close to clients and evangelize how Simon’s predictive capabilities can transform their business.
In this role, your typical day might include leading a conversation with clients to understand their business problems and to educate them about the value of Simon’s predictive solutions, collaborating with members of the engineering team to guide the development of a new product feature, using SQL and data analysis tools to explore data, and presenting the results of an analysis to the executive team.
You are the right person for this role if you are a skilled communicator; love to work closely with clients, engineers, and executive leadership; can translate the technical language used in creating predictive products to highlight the value for the end user; and are adept at handling multiple responsibilities. If this sounds like you we would love to hear from you!
