Team Lead, Data Engineering

Here at LiveRamp, we’re changing the world of data connectivity. Our technology unites the marketing technology ecosystem, enabling brands to measure the impact of digital marketing on sales and deliver highly relevant messages to consumers on virtually any channel or device.

As our Data Engineering Lead, you’ll be responsible to help engineers develop new skills and advance their careers. You should have a track record of leading productive engineering teams and have at least 1+ years of engineering management experience.

In the first six months of this role, you will start out as an individual contributor, learning our web development technologies, contributing to the development of backend applications, and forming close working relationship with your teammates in engineering. Once you have a good foundation of the projects here at LiveRamp, you will take on a new challenge and transition into a management position, leading and coaching a team of backend software engineers.

On the engineering team at LiveRamp, we value ownership and individual contribution within a collaborative environment. Be ready to leave your ego at the door, roll up your sleeves and start solving huge challenges as soon as you begin.
