Director of Data Science

Wayne Technologies, Inc. - Houston, TX

Explosive growth has created the need for a Director of Data Science in our Houston HQ located in the Galleria. This person will be starting up the entire Data Science practice for the organization and will be responsible for influencing/creating their go-to-market strategy. This position sits in the Marketing department, but has a direct ROI - this is a Profit Center!


Notes about the role:

This is a leadership position - although prior management isn’t required, leadership is.

Technology background is important - this is not a hands on software engineering role, but the ability to write/review code (namely with R/SAS, Python, etc.)

Must be a self-starter and have the ability to both strategize and execute - you will be hiring a team around you, but in the beginning you are a one-person show.

Must be a culture-fit in an organization that focuses on training, high-performance, and the ability to present to team members, other divisions, and upper-management/executives.

Must be able to cultivate data both internally and externally with little guidance.


This role pays very well and offers a lot of influence over the direction of the business and it’s strategy. The need for culture fit is just as strong as it is for technical know-how.

If you think you’re the right fit, please apply!
