Data is at the core of Outreach's strategy. It drives ourselves and our customers to the highest levels of success. We use it for everything from customer health scores and revenue dashboards, to operational metrics of our AWS infrastructure, to helping increase product engagement and user productivity through natural language understanding, to predictive analytics and causal inference via experimentation. As our customer base continues to grow, we are looking towards new ways of leveraging our data to deeper understand our customers’ needs and deliver new products and features to help continuously improve their customer engagement workflows.
The mission of the Data Science team is to enable such continuous optimization by modeling customer engagement workflows, developing metrics to measure success and efficiency of these workflows and providing insights and tools to support execution and optimization of these workflows. As a member of the team, you will be on the ground floor working with Product Managers, Data Scientists, Machine Learning Engineers, Application Engineers and executives to define and implement our strategy for delivering on this mission.
As a manager of the Sales Process Optimization team you will be responsible for defining and implementing algorithms and engineering platforms for automated optimization of sales workflows, aka sales playbooks. For most organizations, their sales playbooks are highly suboptimal, defined based on intuition and personal experience of sales leaders, without much data analysis involved. Your goal will be to change that. You will build and manage a cross-functional team consisting of data scientists, machine learning engineers and application engineers working on transforming static intuition-based sales playbooks into dynamically optimized sales processes. Your goal will be to not just build features and systems, but to forever revolutionize how sales works.
Our Vision of You
- You have 10+ years of technical experience including;
