About Us

New datasets are being created every day and companies need to incorporate them into their strategic decision making processes to remain competitive.

YipitData is the go-to, 200+ person data team for hundreds of the largest institutional investors and corporations in the world. We identify, screen, license, clean, and analyze external datasets to help clients answer their key questions. 

We have amazing reviews (and a 5.0 rating!) on Glassdoor and are one of Inc’s Best Workplaces - a fast-growing technology company based in NYC, backed by Norwest Venture Partners and with a strong culture focused on mastery, ownership, and purpose.

About The Role:

YipitData was founded in 2010 - since then, we have become the leading provider of “external data” insights to the hedge fund and other investment communities around the globe. 

In early 2019, YipitData launched a new business unit providing data and insights to corporations. Our Corporate business has been growing quickly and we are expanding our data team by hiring a Director of Product who will be key to the success of the initiative. 

Our Director of Product role is a fantastic opportunity for candidates with 9+ years of experience to help scale our Corporate business and launch transformative new data products for YipitData’s fastest growing customer segment.

This is a remote-friendly opportunity that can sit in NYC (where our headquarters is located), or anywhere in the US.

In this role, you’ll gain experience in:

  • Developing and launching new data products to help market leaders navigate the ongoing transition to a digital-first world
  • Spearheading customer discovery efforts, identifying and prioritizing the must-have themes in the sector, and defining the value proposition of the product

  • Work with internal teams to understand current capabilities and available third party data sets, while working with our Head of Data Partnerships to procure additional data sources to create a compelling product for your sector 
  • Be responsible for overall sector P+L and working closely with sales partners to join prospect calls and manage/prioritize product development pipelines based on potential ARR vs ability to execute
  • Own data analysis workflows, data pipelines to clients, qualitative industry reporting, and dashboard products for client consumption
  • Serve as a domain expert to clients and prospects by having an accurate and deep understanding of customer pain points in your sector and existing competitor solutions in the market and identifying YipitData Corporate's unique value proposition

You are likely to succeed if:

  • You have 9+ years of experience in a B2B product/research team, management consulting, data provider/vendor or as part of a Corporate Development/Strategy team 
  • You have 3+ years of management experience and you enjoy managing and supporting a team
  • You have an established track record of launching successful products
  • You are excited to develop a new product line and build a team to help you scale it
