Data Science Manager, Analytics - Instagram

New York, New York

Instagram is a global community of more than 1 billion, which means jobs here offer countless ways to make an impact in a fast growing organization. Instagram was built to connect people to the people and interests they love. Our app has played a critical part in forming meaningful communities where people can connect with each other and share what matters most to them.

We’re looking for a passionate, strategic analytics leader to work on our shopping product. The opportunity here is rich; discovery has been part of the Instagram experience from the beginning. With 80% of people following a business account, Instagrammers want to explore and find new things from brands they love and businesses want more opportunities to build relationships with these valuable customers.
When it comes to shopping, we set out to create something that was less transactional and more immersive. Something that gave people more time and space to browse and evaluate products, making mobile shopping feel just like shopping. The solution is not as simple as just adding a buy button. Today, Instagrammers can shop and browse products from retail businesses from posts in feed, on profile and in explore. In the future, we have ambitious plans to continue our efforts to strengthen relationships between people and the brands they love, by creating more opportunities—and simpler ways—to discover and explore products on Instagram.
The data science team plays a crucial role in realizing this mission by fueling actionable data insights to drive huge impact in a wide range of areas from influencing business strategy and product direction to operational excellence. As the data science lead, you’ll influence key strategic decisions by bringing data to the table when it matters most.
This position is located in New York City.


  • Lead and build a team of world-class data scientists and collaborate with a strong cross-functional leadership team
  • Apply your expertise in quantitative analysis and the presentation of data to see beyond the numbers and understand how our users interact with shopping on Instagram
  • Inform, influence, support, and execute our product decisions
  • Clearly communicate in a narrative fashion your recommendations to a variety of technical and non-technical partners
  • Provide a clear view into the assumptions you have made and the rigor employed in the analysis


Minimum Qualification

  • 3+ years of management experience
  • 4+ years of experience doing quantitative and statistical analysis
  • Experience with programming language and SQL
  • Knowledge with statistical programming software like Python or R
  • Experience with large data sets
  • Experience communicating to cross-functional partners of varying technical levels
  • Experience defining metrics
  • Communication experience
  • Experience understanding dashboards and presentations
  • Experience initiating and driving projects to completion with little to no guidance
