Warby Parker is a vertically-integrated, holistic vision care company, built from the ground up by teams that understand technology. That means we have data on everything we do, giving us unprecedented visibility into our supply chains, product design, marketing, retail and ecommerce, systems, customer experience, and much more. Every one of those areas provides opportunities for data-driven improvements. As the Senior Director, Data, you will lead the team striving to make that a reality.
Reporting to the CTO, you will oversee the managers of several teams. The Data Engineering team owns the systems that provide clean data and tools to the 150+ analysts across the company who build dashboards, visualizations, and ad-hoc analyses. Data Science provides support across the business, powering recommendations, experiments, optimizations, deep analysis, and analytical training. And Data Infrastructure helps keep it all running smoothly and efficiently, while upholding our standards as a public company working with healthcare data.
The ability to nurture talent and influence great performance will set you up for success in this position, as will familiarity with applications of statistics and machine learning, modern software engineering, and enterprise business intelligence. We’ll count on you to encourage a collaborative and empathetic culture, ensure quality results, and work with your team on strategy and execution.

Some benefits and perks of working at Warby Parker:
Warby Parker was founded with a mission: to inspire and impact the world with vision, purpose, and style.
We’re constantly asking ourselves how we can do more and make a greater impact—and that starts by reimagining everything that a company and industry can be. We want to demonstrate that a business can scale, be profitable, and do good in the world—without charging a premium for it. And we’ve learned that it takes creativity, empathy, and innovation to achieve that goal.
Since the day we launched in 2010, we’ve pioneered ideas, designed products, and developed technologies that help people see. We offer everything our customers need for happier eyes at a price that leaves them with money in their pockets, from designer-quality glasses and contacts to eye exams and vision tests.
Ultimately, we believe in vision for all, which is why for every pair of glasses or sunglasses we sell, a pair of glasses is distributed to someone in need through our Buy a Pair, Give a Pair program. Over eight million pairs of glasses have been distributed in over 50 countries; that means eight million people now have the glasses they need to learn, work, and achieve better economic outcomes.
At Warby Parker, you can look forward to company outings and events, volunteering and learning opportunities, and just great company filled with curious, kind folks. Dreaming up and sharing ideas aren’t responsibilities reserved for certain teams or leaders; the challenge (a really fun one) of innovation is on all of our shoulders. Teammates can also connect around common interests, backgrounds, and identities, no matter their home base, through our various employee resource groups. (We’re happy to say that the Human Rights Campaign has named us a Best Place to Work for LGBTQ+ employees!) That sense of community and belonging keeps us excited to walk through the door every day, wherever that door may be.
We're driven to continue building a workplace, based on inclusive behaviors and equitable systems, where all employees can bring their authentic selves, feel engaged, and share their perspectives as a valued member of Team Warby. Transparency is what we’re all about, and our annual Impact Report and Racial Equity Strategy lay out how we’re sticking to these values.
