Software Engineering Manager - Content Media Platform

We seek to hire a Software Engineering Manager passionate about software and data; someone who can lead a team developing a high scale service that handles all content and media uploaded and delivered across our applications. Our platform receives thousands of high scale requests per second and powers media on HomeAway across geographies. This platform-level service is leveraged by dozens of internal engineering teams and we desire a hands on coding manager with in depth knowledge of software architecture, coding best practices, CI/CD and capacity planning to lead this critical initiative. Our next generation of services will use advanced machine learning frameworks and technology to derive insights and metadata within our media. A background in data mining, automated content sourcing or information retrieval would be a plus.
