The data team at GA is made up of a Director of Data (you), a Senior Staff Data Engineer, two Senior Data Engineers, two Data Engineers, two BI Analysts, and a Technical Project Manager. In 2021 the team is expected to grow. You will report directly to the VP of Technology.

This is a technical role, you won’t be expected to code but we expect you to have proven deep data engineering experience. You will be focused primarily on leading your teams, strategy, planning, delivery, mentorship, and coaching. It’s the job of the Director of Data to leverage technology (including Data Science) and data to bring insight to the organization.
