Technical Program Manager, Instagram Release & Stability

Over a billion people use Instagram, which means jobs here offer countless ways to make an impact in a fast growing organization. Instagram was built to connect people to the people and interests they love. Our app has played a critical part in forming meaningful communities where people can connect with each other and share what matters most to them.

The release & stability team plays an integral role in implementing and driving the product quality and process of shipping new features to the Instagram community.

As a Technical Program Manager, you'll use your technical and organizational abilities to drive programs aimed at improving the stability of the app, and optimize release processes across many different platforms.
