The Role
Data is at the core of Outreach's strategy. It drives our customers and ourselves to the highest levels of success.

As our customer base continues to grow, we are looking towards new ways of leveraging our data to save our customers time and improve their sales efficiency. Our team is expanding and we are looking for a Software Engineering Manager to lead the Data Platform organization.
