Sr. Product Manager - Data

| Greater Boston Area
ezCater is the world’s largest online marketplace for catering – a $60+ billion market just in the U.S. Businesspeople use us to find and order great food for meetings and events; restaurants and caterers use us to grow their catering business. We’re backed by Insight Partners, Iconiq Capital, Wellington, Lightspeed, and GIC, and in early 2019 were valued at $1.25 billion. COVID slammed us, but we responded by finding new customer segments and seizing the rare opportunity COVID offered: when in life does a very successful operation get a do-over? Come help us power Food For Work even better than we did it the first time.
With over 80,000 catering partners nationwide, ezCater has been the best-in-class marketplace for [email protected] for more than a decade. We are embarking on a journey to leverage this wealth of data as the cornerstone of our next phase of growth. We are looking for a highly motivated Product Manager to join our Data Technology team to drive the development of a next-generation data platform. By developing a green-fields data science / MLOps platform and investing in data architecture and governance, we have big ideas around re-inventing the catering buying experience, search and recommendations, and ushering in a new era of Business Intelligence. Sound exciting? Let's talk!
The ideal candidate is one with a strong business mind for where to apply our massive data corpus to solve impactful business problems across the Demand, Supply, Support, and Fulfillment domains. A background in data science (or data products) and general creativity will be key to answering questions like “What’s the best side dish for pizza?” or “Do we have enough Greek restaurants in Austin?” You are a collaborator who can work with executive stakeholders to understand what questions they need answered to monitor and optimize their business lines while driving incremental value, and a pragmatist to prioritize effectively across a wide variety of opportunities. You are an innovator who understands how to drive concepts from requirements to implementation to measurement and rollout.
What you’ll do:
-Lead product development initiatives with data science, engineering and product dev teams for the entire development lifecycle.
-Lead cross-functional teams, serving as both product and project manager, to define product specifications, establish milestones, and direct the development, implementation, and evolution of new features.
-Develop written requirements, define success metrics and associated use-cases for new projects, shepherding projects from ideation to test results analysis and iteration.
-Partner with business and analytics stakeholders to research, troubleshoot, diagnose, and recommend solutions to increasingly complex business or technical problems.
-Assist in prioritizing enhancements and bug fixes, while identifying thematic issues that can be solved with technology improvements.
You have:
-3+ years of digital product management experience, preferably in data science and web platform products.
-A strong understanding of software development practices and lifecycle, experience specific to the data space a plus.
-Proficient SQL knowledge to pull data independently and collaborate with the team. 
-Strong teamwork and collaboration skills and you're happy spending much of the day away from your desk connecting with team members in different functional areas.
-Strong problem solving, analytical, and decision making skills. You're also able to interpret data and trends, diagnose problems, and formulate effective action plans to resolve issues.
-Flexible and open to change and new information; is first to understand when team behaviors and work methods need to adapt to new information.
-A goal-oriented mindset and have a demonstrated record of success in previous endeavors; motivated to deliver exceptional results, driven by a strong work ethic.
-A sharp mind, a soft heart and a large funny bone.
-Experience with: Snowflake, DBT, Kubernetes, Docker, AWS, Sagemaker, Spark, etc. (Nice to have)

What you’ll get from us:
You’ll get a terrifically compelling opportunity, in an environment of radical transparency, open access to all the data, and collaborative colleagues at every level of our organization. You’ll also get sane working hours and great flexibility around work/life balance. 
Have people in your life – of any age – who always, often, or sometimes need your help? We make room for that. Have a bad thing or a good thing happen to you? We make room for that, too.
Oh, and you’ll get all this: Market salary, stock options that you’ll help make worth a lot, the usual holidays, all-you-can-eat vacation, 401K with ezCater match, health/dental/FSA, long-term disability insurance, a great office in the heart of Boston or Denver that you can’t use till COVID lightens up, a tremendous amount of responsibility and autonomy, wicked awesome co-workers, cupcakes (and many more goodies) once we get back to our offices, and knowing that you helped get this rocket ship to the moon.

An Insider's view of ezCater

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

ezCater gives its employees total control over their work-life balance, whether that means taking time for the doctor or going on a vacation. Everyone here understands that life gets in the way of work at times, and as long as you get your job done well and support your fellow co-workers, you get to control your own schedule.

Claire

Business Operations Strategist

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I love working with other teams in the company! Every person I have encountered is insanely helpful and willing to teach me about their job. I'm always pleasantly surprised at how collaborative this company is.

Alyssa

Senior Menu Specialist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've been able to grow a team and department from scratch, and had the opportunity to make decisions on my own. Overall, I've grown faster here than anywhere else I've worked.

Jules

Manager, ezDispatch

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

For me, fostering creativity comes down to ownership & a healthy comfort with failure. I try to make sure the team is pointed at big, meaty problems and then I largely get out of the way.

Dillon

Sr. Product Manager

What are some social events your company does?

Our weekly breakfasts and lunches provide a social avenue throughout the day, while our end of week ezHour gives the entire company a chance to wind down and interact. Outside of that, we're often seeing fun events pop up like our Holiday Party, fun team off-sites, and volunteer events that bring people together from across the company.
