  • Manage the performance and career growth of team members.
  • Drive technical and strategic vision of the team and help translate day-to-day issues into coherent and robust systems
  • Work closely with analytics to plan and prioritize the data roadmap and manage the workstream and assigned tasks of the team by setting clear expectations and providing constructive feedback.
  • Ensure that Reverb standard engineering practices are followed and help define practices where there may be a gap.
  • Champion communication and trust between teams, peers, product and across the organization.
  • Foster a culture centered around delivery with a focus on quality.
  • Familiarity with ETL scheduling technologies such as Airflow and experience building production grade data pipelines.
