Data Governance Manager
San Mateo, CA
At Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE), we believe data is a critical business asset that facilitates business operations, empowers decision making, and provides vital insights into the improvement and innovation of PlayStation products and services. In an era where growth of data is outpacing an organization's ability to get value from it, the Data Governance and Literacy team is tasked with the mission to continuously advance a driven culture that fosters effective yet responsible use of data.
You will lead the governance arm of the Data Governance and Literacy team, focusing on implementation of a data stewardship framework to operationalize data policies across the organization. Policies are pointless without associated accountability and practices that put the policies to work! You will establish yourself as a driver of such process. As you do, you will acquire a holistic view of data operations in a company that has a massive scale, and in the process be rewarded with a broad understanding of the business as well as the opportunity to work with a wide range of high-caliber teams across the globe.

• Establish and measure accountability in each involved department
• Appoint, train and lead data stewards
• Develop program measurement metrics
• Develop in-depth knowledge of privacy concepts and regulations and how PlayStation features and operations are designed to meet them. Champion privacy-by-design not just as risk avoidance but as ambitious advantage.
