The size of Athena’s datasets means that you will also be working with an experienced data team, led by published authors, to distribute and productionsie your models.

We are restlessly discovering the areas where we can make the most difference for our customers and our business. Everything we build is tied to and measured by the value and outcome it brings our customers as well as its impact on our business objectives. We are an empathetic group of Product Managers making a career out of building great software for our customers.

Figuring out what we need to build and prioritising when we build it is a core responsibility. We bring the vision and context to empower great decisions, so we focus on posing the right questions rather than dictating detailed solutions. This involves ensuring that potential risks are mitigated such as value, feasibility, usability and viability risks.

  • Responsible for the quality and scalability of the data science models that underpin our platform.

  • Define, maintain and deliver a data platform roadmap based on initiatives, OKRs, and the platform strategy by prioritizing the main areas of focus for the data and data science teams based on user and buyer value, business viability, and time to impact.
  • Own and maintain platform KPIs in collaboration with the Data, Data Science, and Ops teams. You’ll be expected to track and report back on the achieved business outcomes and realised customer value to the wider business.
  • Engage in user research pre and post release when needed to validate customer impact of data changes. Always represent the voice of the customer.
  • Ideate and collaborate closely with the data and data science teams in agile sprints to come up with and test innovative solutions to problems that work for our customers and our business.

Requirements

  • You are familiar with typical cloud-hosted web app architectures and with the services offered by the major public cloud vendors (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform).
  • You always champion the customer, market, and product vision to everyone in the building and constantly gather feedback from everyone.
  • You are the type of person who works best when given ownership and responsibility for outcomes (self-motivator). Experience working with senior management stakeholders to get shit done. 
  • Excellent oral and written English.

Technical Skills

Obligatory:

  • Commercial Product collaboration experience with sales, marketing, customer teams.
