About Honor

Honor is changing the way we care for our parents. Founded in 2014, the San Francisco–based company brings workforce management and technology expertise together with high-touch, personalized care to improve the in-home care experience. Since launching the Honor Care Network in 2017, Honor has partnered with a growing roster of independently owned home care agencies to deliver reliable, transparent, and high-quality care. The Honor Care Network currently provides non-medical home care services to families in more than 800 cities and towns across the United States.

Job Description

Our mission is simple—we’re changing the way we care for our parents so they can live safely at home as they age. But how we accomplish our mission is anything but simple. Every day, we’re solving complex problems that don’t come with a playbook.

As a product team, we are obsessed with designing clear and simple experiences that elevate the human elements of care delivery. We take pride in designing solutions that encompass team composition, workflow and process, as well as digital tools. If you are a strategic designer who shares our core values—Own the Outcome, Solve with Empathy, and Act with Honor—let’s talk.

Founded in 2014, Honor is now one of the fastest-growing, non-medical home care companies in the U.S. Why? We realized that by combining our amazing technology and operations with the local, personal touch of our partner agencies, we could make real progress transforming this fast-growing, $30BN industry. Honor’s unique approach is driving our leadership as an innovator—and our rapid growth. We have cutting-edge machine learning, a beautiful, well-designed app, and industry-leading design, paired with a strong sales, marketing, and support engine. But we're not a tech company, we're a human company. The technology we design just helps our people be even better at their jobs

About the work:

  • Lead and grow a team of the very top talent in data science and data analytics pushing the boundaries of what's possible in the home care industry
  • Set the vision and prioritize the team’s work, make difficult trade-offs between business constraints and timely delivery of high-quality projects
  • Work closely with PM team to ship data projects to production and drive measurable operational improvements
  • Be a key member of the Product Leadership team (with PM, Engineering, Design)
  • Examples of data science work the team does:
    • Develop predictive models that help optimize operational workflows, including staffing and matching
    • Help understand and improve customer and caregiver retention
    • Design and interpret tests to evaluate product features and operational changes
    • Develop new techniques and data that will enable answering previously unanswerable and new questions
    • Design and build data infrastructure by partnering with the production engineering team
  • Examples of analytics work the team does:
    • Collaborate with all business functions to define metrics and prioritize data needs
    • Provide reliable and usable access to data sets and analytics reporting
    • Build and maintain data pipelines, storage infrastructure, and BI tools

About you:

  • 4+ years experience building and leading excellent teams of data scientists, data engineers, and analysts
  • Experience bridging data science with product to impact top level business goals
  • An excellent communicator and collaborator who can work well with various stakeholder groups and levels of the organization
  • Experience influencing leadership so that your team’s work directly impacts business outcomes
  • Experience with marketplace operations, pricing/incentives, matching a plus

What’s next?

Honor is remote friendly! We're hiring across the U.S., with an entirely virtual interview and onboarding process. Moving forward, no roles will require permanent relocation, but as conditions allow, we'll have office space for in-person collaboration in our San Francisco Bay Area, CA and Austin, TX hubs. If you're looking for a great job that offers you the opportunity to work from home, we'd love to talk to you.
