General Manager & CEO (Enigma’s Data Acquisition Corporation)
Join Enigma to run our public data subsidiary, the Enigma Data Acquisition Corporation [working title]. Since its founding, Enigma has collected hundreds of public sources of data and made them available for free. Our goal is to expand this strategy and release hundreds more value-added public datasets to fuel new projects in enterprises, research in the public and academic sectors, and the creation of new businesses. While this subsidiary is expected to be profitable, the primary mission is to release as much well-structured and programmatically usable data as possible, for free, to as many people and entities as we can. The GM & CEO will be responsible for full P&L management, hiring a data collection team and relevant support functions, product strategy & development, running go-to-market, and driving the brand identity of this newly formed entity. This role reports to the Board of Directors for Enigma’s data acquisition corporation, which includes Enigma’s CEO and other key representatives. As you can tell, this is an intense job that will require all of your dedication, but you will be building one of the most important data assets assembled to date.
In addition, note that you and the team are expected to be located in a smaller city in the United States (not NYC or SF), so this is a great opportunity to explore that kind of move.
