The Role
As a Data Engineering Manager at Linktree, you will be responsible for managing a team of Data and Software Engineers; guiding, supporting and enabling the individuals in your team to do the best work of their careers.
The Data Platform team is at the forefront of transforming the way Linktree leverages data, working closely with the insights, analytics engineering, product and marketing teams to become truly data driven.

What You'll Own

  • Develop and implement the strategy for the Data Platform in close collaboration with other data and engineering leaders.
  • In line with our company strategy of high performance, this leader will cultivate clarity for the team by setting clear expectations, developing performance and growing the team over time.
  • Continue leading the transformation to make data a first-class citizen in software development at Linktree. This includes providing other teams with the self-service capabilities to ingest, transform, consume and integrate data with other systems for both production and analytics use-cases.
  • Evangelise best data practices and drive adoption across the company.
  • Partner with security and legal domain experts to ensure guardrails for data governance.

Who We're Looking For

  • Experience managing, scaling and mentoring teams in a high growth tech environment, preferably a product led company.
  • Strong levels of influence. This role involves transforming the way our teams operate, particularly cross-functional product teams, to make data the center of decision making.
  • A platform mindset. Our Data Platform team does not do repetitive data transformation and integration jobs for others. The team builds the infrastructure that allows Linktree to perform these tasks at scale by enabling all teams to perform data-related jobs themselves.
  • Experience in relevant engineering disciplines to architect data-driven systems and platforms at scale including, but not limited to, instrumentation at the source, event ingestion, event brokers, data warehouses, pipelines and data integration patterns with third party systems, such as an experimentation platform, product analytics and marketing tooling. Having worked with distributed, event-driven systems is a plus.
  • Linktree is committed to providing a competitive compensation package. Our cash compensation amount for this role is targeted at $165,000-$235,000 in the San Francisco Bay or Los Angeles area. Final offer amounts are determined by multiple factors including candidate expertise, the scope of role and level, and may vary from the amounts listed above.

Where and How We Work
We are a global and diverse group offering a truly flexible and family friendly work environment. Kids, pets, and the occasional delivery person are all actively encouraged to appear on our Zoom screens. All of us at Linktree work either fully remote or a hybrid "remote, but in-office sometimes" approach.
We currently have offices in Melbourne, Sydney and LA, but our team is spread across Australia, United States, and New Zealand. As our team approaches 200 people, our company will be 10x the size we were in 2020.
We offer autonomy and flexibility in how you structure your days and weeks. There will be the need for some collaboration outside of a "normal" 9-5 being a global company, but we aim to work asynchronously where possible.
Our Culture and Benefits
Linktree's company culture and values are based around collaboration, diversity, inclusion, and flexibility. Those are all nice words but to give you some more specific examples:
• We recognize that our teammates are individually unique and have designed our benefits with this in mind. Each employee has an annual allowance to use on things like (but not limited to) fitness memberships, development courses, childcare, travel, charitable donations, pet insurance, home office set up - the choice is yours!
• We provide top-flight medical, dental, vision, disability and life insurance - we cover 100% of your monthly premiums (and 80% for your dependents).
• 401k matching up to 6%.
• Employee Stock Option Program - we want each and every employee to share in the company’s success as we go further together.
