Our UFB DS team focuses on using a combination of both quantitative methods and business intuition to find actionable insights that drive key business decisions throughout the UFB organization.
In this role, you will be responsible for growing and leading an international team of decision scientists to partner directly with marketing, sales, customer success, product, and engineering teams throughout the UFB organization. We are looking for a technically sharp, independent data leader with a talent for drawing structure out of ambiguity, a relentless focus on driving meaningful business impact, and a passion for improving lives through learning!

  • Provide hands-on technical guidance and career mentorship for team members
  • Collaborate with other data leaders to define Udemy’s long-term data strategy, vision, and internal processes
  • Partner with cross-functional leaders to shape the team’s and UFB’s roadmaps, and drive execution
  • Maintain high-quality standards for data science work and recruiting
  • Build Udemy’s technical brand through talks, blog posts, and publications

We Are Excited About You Because You Have:

  • 2+ years of experience managing and growing high-performance data science teams
  • 6+ years of industry experience in a decision science context
  • Ability to communicate effectively with non-technical stakeholders
  • Strong business intuition as well as judgement
  • Expert data storytelling and data visualization ability
