Technical Program Manager, Data Science

As a Technical Program Manager, you will serve as a partner to the Analytics and Data Science team. This role is at the cross roads of Business, Data, and Engineering. You will be deeply cross functional in nature giving both to the Analytics team as well as to major cross company initiatives where analytics and data play a meaningful role. On a day to day basis you will employ both technical and strategic proficiency as you help build the team.

On the technical side, you will deliver technical programs in the context of x-company initiatives (essentially leading Analytics' relationship with other teams at Atlassian) and ensure smooth integration where needed. Examples include:
• Improve overall delivery/operational effectiveness (laddered OKRs, business timeline, major milestones, risks and dependencies, etc.)
• Guide teams toward higher overall accountability
• Increased implementation on product quant side + instrumentation on qualitative design research
• Product/ Marketing analytics - client side instrumentation; experimentation; ability to be familiar with engagement platforms
• Data Science - ability to connect business with technical hacks and tools we are assessing then pass on to Engineers for production level development

Strategically, you will tie business needs with technical limitations and requirements by:
• Connecting the dots and weave together data points and team work in areas such as core analytics, data science, data engineering, MarTech
• Designing and driving monthly data operations review (bring multiple teams across Atlassian together to increase dialog across teams and ensure investment in infrastructure is consistent and high ROI)
• Coordinating with non-technical business teams (e.g. Legal and Risk & Compliance) to translate business needs and drive results

This role will suit a converted data science or analytics person who enjoys leaning into the project and program management areas of team work and loves getting into the technical details to help the teams get passed blockers.

More about you

On your first day, we'll expect you to have:
• 3-5 years experience delivering software projects in a cloud environment as a project manager, tech lead, team lead, dev manager, product manager, QA, lead developer or similar
• Strong technical chops to establish credibility with engineers and GSD quickly, a real passion for cloud technology and for changing the future of team work (beyond tools and rituals)
• Strong communication and organizational skills

It's great, but not required, if you have:
• Coding experience (in SQL, Python, etc.)
• Familiarity with product or marketing instrumentation process and data ETL flow
