Manager, Data Platform


UrbanStems is a modern floral and gifting company designed for thoughtful people. Founded in 2014 in Washington, DC, UrbanStems has become a leader in the space with our expressive bouquets, plants, and gift options. From coast-to-coast next-day delivery to same-day courier service in NYC and DC, we are helping people stay connected.

Named one of Inc. 500’s fastest-growing companies in 2019, UrbanStems has launched brand partnerships with Vogue, Bumble, JCrew, and more. We offer a collaborative and open working environment with ample opportunity to grow and learn.

We are seeking a collaborative and experienced leader to join our team as the Manager, Data Platform.

Proactive in managing risks, and in communicating both good and bad news, you are a team player who brings people together. You understand the importance of data governance in ensuring long-term scalability. You are passionate about data democratization and end-user enablement. You demonstrate a bias for action and embrace a test and learn approach. Finally, you are inquisitive, love to learn, embrace failure, never give up, and are comfortable in a hybrid/remote (depending on location), fast-paced, and rapidly changing environment.


  • Manage and grow a distributed team of data and analytics engineers
  • Oversee the design, implementation, and maintenance of our data platform, including databases, ETL pipelines, BI platforms, observability, and related tools
  • Work closely with members of our Finance, Marketing, and Operations teams to ensure data initiatives and resources are aligned with company goals

  • Optimize communication and collaboration across business and technical resources, providing training and support to foster an inclusive culture that drives innovation
  • Define and report on key performance metrics related to system usage and effectiveness
  • Manage vendor relationships, including consultants and software providers
  • Ensure that systems and processes are compliant with data privacy, security, and other regulatory requirements (e.g. CCPA / CRPA)


  • 7+ years experience managing data infrastructure and teams
  • Deep knowledge of SaaS ETL tools (Stitch Data, DBT), data warehouse technologies (BigQuery, Redshift), and BI platforms (Mode Analytics, Looker)
  • Familiarity with customer and business operations analytics needs, and hands-on experience with integration involving web analytics, CDP/CRM, and ERP systems
  • Experience implementing and maintaining data governance initiatives
  • Proven ability to ship high quality output, on-time and on budget
  • Excellent written, verbal, analytical, and problem-solving skills
  • Experience in a direct-to-consumer retail or CPG setting is highly preferred
