Overview

The Babylist Engineering team is involved in growing and scaling all aspects of our business. Data is at the core of what we do and a key area of investment in the future. Data is used to power our decision making all the way from user acquisition, content, to optimizing our supply chain. We will invest heavily in the coming years in making data more accessible to our internal teams and to leverage it to provide users with a more personalized registry, gifting, and shopping experience.

    • The team will in many ways be their own product manager(s) when working across the organization to make data more accessible and actionable
    • The team will pair with Product and Engineering when working on feature work that powers our web and mobile apps
