  • Facilitate technical decision-making with an emphasis on maintainability, scalability, and performance for complex infrastructure that aligns with best practices, software development methodologies, and coding standards.
  • Oversee the end-to-end infrastructure development process while championing a developer-centric approach to iterate and improve on infrastructure capabilities.
  • Promote strong and transparent communication channels both internally and with cross-functional stakeholders across the organization.
  • Work closely with stakeholders to understand unique developer needs while balancing them with infrastructure cost efficiency.
  • Identify and mitigate issues, risks, and barriers to inclusive, successful engineering practices.

WHAT YOU BRING:

  • 7+ years of experience, including 2+ years of successful people management of an Engineering team.
  • Experience leading substantial, multi-month projects within an engineering team.
  • Familiarity with all phases of DevOps lifecycle as it applies to infrastructure development.
  • A history of supporting, mentoring, and coaching more junior engineers as well as peers.
  • Strong leadership skills and a demonstrated ability to build trust and consensus across teams and stakeholders.
  • Strong communication skills with a team-centric and remote-reliant approach to discussion and collaboration.
  • Demonstrated commitment to inclusion, diversity, and fostering a strong sense of belonging on teams.
