We are seeking a world-class Manager of Toolchain Software Engineering, whose charter is to create a technical design and build team that can rapidly integrate dozens of tools in DataKitchen’s DataOps platform. There are hundreds of tools that our customers use to do their day to day work: data science, data engineering, data visualization, and governance.
