We are looking for an experienced data product manager to lead one of our data platform workstreams. We are in the early days of capturing a multi-billion dollar opportunity and you will be joining us in the foundational stages of our journey.

Our supplier-facing ecosystem enables our 17,000+ supplier-partners to deliver on that promise by providing them with all capabilities they need to successfully manage their e-commerce business.
The Supplier Data Engineering team, based in Berlin, is responsible for building our next-generation supplier data platform and services. Our team curates and democratizes data across different domains for analysts and data scientists, and provides the foundational capabilities to access and enrich all types of supplier data. With our data products, we enable supplier-facing teams to provide actionable insights across their entire business, targeted notifications on what to act upon, and relevant recommendations on how to grow with us.

Shape the product strategy for one of our data engineering workstreams and lead the team through goal setting, discovery, delivery, and adoption of your data products.
Partner with many supplier product teams, data analysts, and data scientists to understand their challenges, needs, and end-to-end use cases and involve your engineering peers to define valuable and viable data solutions.
Prioritize the work for your team, balancing mission-critical initiatives, tactical stakeholder asks and keeping the lights-on activities.
Take full responsibility for the launch strategy of your solutions, drive the adoption of your products and services, and measure their success.
