The Data Science group’s vision at GitHub is to supercharge our platform and services by leveraging our data in order to improve the software engineering workflow. We seek to enable more people to engage in the creation, collaboration and consumption of code while having an active hand in the participation of the future development of the software supply chain. To that end, we both produce features powered by data science/machine learning techniques, as well as build products to enable data/data science collaboration.
The Data Science Foundation team’s role in this overarching vision is to empower scientists and engineers to collaborate on novel and creative data products by bringing data science / machine learning workflows into parity with modern software development and infrastructure management. Pragmatically, this looks like serving internal and external data scientists and researchers with improved workflows - building actions to automate pipelines, improving notebook collaboration, and leading the vision for what data collaboration products will look like on the GitHub platform.
Given the broad scope of how Data Science at GitHub interacts with both our platform and business, the leader we're searching for must be able to review, assess and help articulate fit-for-purpose products, services, and infrastructure in what is a very fast moving field, while simultaneously helping to guide and mentor the team using a well reasoned and pragmatic approach to data science collaboration product creation and delivery.
