  • Provide guidance and coaching to team members on technical contributions, product architecture, and other areas.
  • In addition to the Product Manager, work with the rest of the team (e.g. Engineers, Software Engineers in Test) to ensure the team direction is clear, and the team is delivering value aligned with business needs. 
  • Maintain empathy for the team by keeping awareness of engineering processes and practices. Examples may include:
  • evaluating individual workflow during one on ones
  • ensuring production readiness reviews are being conducted
  • collaborating with internal stakeholders throughout the department, as the single point of contact for any internal Applied ML requests
  • Actively seek and hire globally-distributed talent
  • Contribute to the sense of psychological safety in your team
  • Foster technical decision making on the team, but make final decisions when necessary
  • Draft quarterly OKRs and Engineering KPIs
