Engineering Manager - Data Foundations

  • Oslo +1 more

In Schibsted Data Foundations, we work with data. A lot of data. From our sites and products in the Nordics, we collect nearly 1 billion events per day. As the saying goes, "with vast amounts of data comes great responsibility." One of our core responsibilities is to ensure that our users' data is stored and processed according to the latest best practices within privacy and security. The reason for collecting all this data is to provide value to our end-users and Schibsted at large by building high-quality predictive machine learning pipelines. We produce value by personalizing our news and media products. We ensure that ads are relevant by segmenting on age, gender, interests, and more. We provide insights on our customer bases to build the right products at the right time. How do we do all of this? Well, this is where you come into the picture.

We are looking for an engineering manager to lead an engineering team within Data Foundations. The team is part of a value chain starting with ingesting all our data from Schibsted brands such as Finn, Blocket, VG, and Aftonbladet and turning them into various data products such as business insights, machine learning models and advertisement segments. If you are motivated both by building teams and team members’ competencies, if you are someone excited by technology and advances in big data processing, scaling infrastructure and machine learning, if you are seeking impact - this is for you.

You will be part of the Data Foundations leadership team, and you will be responsible for a diverse, engaged and competent team composed of engineers and data scientists. You will take part in building big data pipelines using technologies such as Spark,Kafka and Tensorflow. Even though we deliver internal products, we need to meet the diversity within Schibsted with a product mindset. Quality of our services, APIs and ease of use, and integration have high focus, as well as privacy in our down-stream deliveries.
