: Senior Engineering Manager - Scribe Platform

Senior Software Engineering Manager - Scribe Platform 

Scribe is a general purpose event definition and real-time tracking platform.  While originally built to model customer behavior, it has long since become a standard in-house technology for general purpose event tracking.

One of the biggest value adds of the team is the cataloguing/organization of events under its watch.  Each event a "customer" submits is reviewed/guided by our team to enforce best practices, correctness and to avoid duplication of existing events.  This in turn gives a strong end-user experience to subscribers of the datasets who can more easily navigate to consistent definitions.
