Data Core Teams - Senior Technical Program Manager

Contentsquare is a global digital analytics company empowering the brands you interact with every day to build better online experiences for all. Since our founding in France in 2012, we have grown to be a truly global and distributed team – known as the CSquad – representing more than 70 nationalities across the world.

In 2022, we raised $600M in Series F funding, doubling our valuation to $5.6B and were recognised as a certified Great Place to Work in France, Germany, Israel, US and UK.

Data Engineers at Contentsquare either work within Product units or in Data Core teams.

While Product units focus on building a specific module or part of the Product together with their R&D peers and the Product Manager, Data Core teams are responsible for the scalability, reliability, and performance of the shared components of the data stack.

They build a long-term technical vision and prepare for the next features and challenges. They also provide guidelines, support, and tooling to the Product units which need to work on those components.

There are two Data Core teams today, each of which focuses on a specific part of our stack
-Data Foundation (ingestion pipelines & data lifecycle management)
-Data Services (analytics Database, data APIs, and query engine)

You will be accountable for the successful planning and execution of the Data Core teams projects roadmap. 

What you will do:

  • Work closely with managers and tech leads from each team, understand their technical vision and goals, help them to refine and prioritize their projects accordingly.
  • Build a clear and reasonable vision of next steps and achievements overview for each critical project under your scope.
  • Animate quarterly roadmap review and preparation phases.
  • Animate recurring meetings with partners and leadership to review progress, cross teams dependencies, risk mitigations, and action plans for resolution
  • Act as a cross-functional liaison to ensure relevant areas of the product house are involved.
  • Proactively improve the collaboration between Product and Data Core teams by proposing process optimizations
  • What you will need to succeed:

  • 5 -10 years of experience in program and project management, including complex, long-term technical projects involving multiple teams.
  • A clear understanding of big data technical challenges and architectures.
  • A strong technical background (a past experience in software development is recommended), with the ability to fully understand and challenge the impacts of a project in terms of workload, cost, performance, and technical/functional trade-offs.
  • Hard-working attitude, capable of operating autonomously
  • Ability to build strong relationships across teams and at all levels
  • Ability to negotiate and influence the vision of the partners
  • Ability to balance short-term optimizations with long-term vision.
  • Highly functional in a dynamic, challenging, and technical environment.
