They develop the software that interacts with our storage, database and search infrastructure across all of our data centers, ingesting close to 2 TBs of data per day.

Internal products include an asynchronous jobs framework and a robust microservices framework, both used by 150+ software engineers across organization. They create services that can be reused by product teams, including localization, certificate management, screen-shotting, authentication, notification and billing services, and the image service that processes 2 million images per day.

Responsibilities

  • Develop engineers and managers across multiple teams through coaching, mentoring, and feedback
  • Drive scaling around database, storage, search, and caching layers
  • Evolve our microservice framework, and build services that can be widely adopted across the larger, engineering organization
  • Effectively partner with other leaders to influence strategic, architectural and organizational choices
  • Thoughtfully negotiate and clarify engineering priorities across teams and align them with larger business goals
  • Grow the technical expertise and development practices of your teams
  • Partner with the recruiting team to attract, onboard, and retain diverse talent

 

Qualifications

  • A deep passion for building and coaching high-performing, engineering teams
  • An affinity for object-oriented programming languages, such as Java, C++, Scala
