Associate Product Manager, Enigma Public
As an Associate Product Manager, you will be creatively dreaming up how Enigma Public can help connect people to public data reflecting the world around them.
You sincerely believe in data’s potential for good and are particularly excited about public data. You’re interested in a position representing varied challenges, from dreaming up public data exploration projects (see Enigma’s previous Labs projects), to helping the Public engineering team execute on new features for Enigma Public to finding new ways to spread the word about public data. At best, you have experience in working with data; either as a researcher or an analyst or in developing applications or data visualizations. If not, you have a sense of what data projects might be most impactful and an ability to communicate clearly. You will be engaging with a wide range of actors within the company and outside of it: government agencies publishing datasets, potential partners in the civic tech ecosystem and engineering teams building data workflows within Enigma.
- Familiarity with open data/public data landscape
- Creative mindset as to the power and possibilities of public data
- Ability to keep a project moving apace
- Interest in engaging with data scientists, data journalists and researchers
Enigma Public is a platform through which Enigma provides free, non-commercial access to public data to all, serving a community of data science students, journalists, data enthusiasts and more. This role will engage with these users and help others discover how public data can be useful to them. The opportunities are many, and the role has the possibility to be involved with writing about data, visualizing data, even building one’s own projects with public data — in addition to helping to help the Public engineering team stay aligned and on track. The role would sit within Enigma’s Product team, but your background doesn’t need to be in product. We hope that you are excited to help do good with public data.

Enigma is a rapidly growing enterprise technology company based in the Flatiron neighborhood of New York City. We are Series B funded, partnering with some of the best investors in the world: New Enterprise Associates, Two Sigma Ventures, Comcast Ventures, Crosslink Capital, American Express Ventures, and others.
Founded in 2012, Enigma was started based on the realization that there was tremendous potential in using public data to understand how the world works, but that it was untapped because the data is highly fragmented and disconnected.
Enigma set out to change that by building and organizing one of the largest collections of public data in the world, and our big coming out party was winning TechCrunch Disrupts Battlefield in 2013. Our vision has remained steadfast, we want to empower people to interpret, and improve, the world around them. However, we have expanded our ability to realize this vision by combining our massive public data repository with an ecosystem of software and tools designed to link, resolve, enhance and apply data to help global-scale companies take on some of their hardest problems, ranging from preventing money laundering to ensuring patient safety.
We are proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is an affirmative action employer. We are committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity or Veteran status.
