Company Description

Tamr is the enterprise data mastering company trusted by large enterprises like Blackstone, the US Air Force, Toyota, and GSK. The company’s patented software platform uses machine learning supplemented with human feedback to master and prepare data across myriad silos to deliver previously unavailable business-changing insights. With a co-founding team led by Andy Palmer (founding CEO of Vertica) and Mike Stonebraker (Turing Award winner) and backed by top-tier investors such as NEA and GV, Tamr is transforming how companies get value from their data.

As a Product Owner, you will be working closely with the engineering, design and product management teams at Tamr. You will provide input to the roadmap to PM and collaborate with design and engineering to ensure swift execution of the roadmap. As a data company, we believe in making data-driven decisions, but we recognize that sometimes it’s also important to listen to your instincts.

You will be responsible for writing user stories, managing sprints, and communicating timelines internally to the teams. In addition, you will work with the documentation team to make sure detailed, clear documentation is produced for your team’s work. You will have a major impact on our product and are expected to be opinionated, decisive, and have good product sense. 

We’re looking for someone with previous product owner experience who works well on a team. Most importantly we want you to be excited about the value of the data we work with and the insights that we can provide as well as a role where you can be a key contributor to a fast-growing startup.

Challenges that make the job interesting:

  • The problem we’re addressing is hard and requires a novel approach/product
  • Enterprise data is messy, but has huge potential. In very short periods of time we’ve been able to provide meaningful insight and save our customers hundreds of millions of dollars
  • Every customer is different - while there are similar use-cases that we see repeatedly, every account presents new challenges and we need a product that can adapt quickly to each new situation

Qualifications:

  • Technical background preferred
  • Experience working within an agile software development organization
  • Excellent interpersonal skills, within the company and with customers
  • 1 to 5 years of industry experience. Including experience in a product owner or product manager role; or experience in a sales engineering, solution architecture, quality engineering, or customer-facing technical role
  • Experience in enterprise software, preferably in data management software

An Insider's view of Tamr

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The office vibe at Tamr is, well, to take a line from Billy Eliot, it is like "electricity." Our open-office concept is dynamic, creative, friendly, and contagious, and everyone contributes fully and genuinely to the mission!

Executive Assistant

How does the company support your career growth?

Tamrs make introductions all the time, and it is normal and expected for people to be out of the office to meet with colleagues and connections in other companies. Both for recruiting and help with understanding how people in other companies have addressed technological and organizational challenges that come up.

What makes someone successful on your team?

The key to being successful is communicating. In the sales engineering team, we of course need to communicate quickly and often with customers. Just as important is being able to communicate with others in the team and in the company. Asking questions, getting feedback, and responding to others are all critical to being an effective team member.
