LaunchDarkly is looking for a talented and inspirational engineering manager to help us build, scale, and empower a part of LaunchDarkly’s engineering team. You will lead engineers in the development of the LaunchDarkly platform. You will set a mission for your team, define the roadmap to hit our goals, and measure success at each step. You will keep your team motivated, growing, and engaged. As part of our you-build-it-you-run-it culture, all engineers may be responsible to support their production services, including on-call. On-call is compensated in addition.


  • Lead the team in charge of our infrastructure, shared platform services, and internal developer tooling. Your end users are fellow LaunchDarkly engineers!

  • Enable our developers to deliver their services with higher autonomy, performance, and speed through offerings written in Go and Terraform.

  • Design and implement core platform infrastructure; you will codify it, monitor it, evolve it, and solve some devilish problems in production.

  • Ensure that new engineers get up and running in minutes, and their changes flow from laptop to production with minimal friction.

  • Ensure we run a cost-effective service, and monitor and make changes to hit spending constraints.

  • Prioritize strategic, high-impact investments while maintaining health, performant, and cost-effective services, both internal and external facing.

  • Help build a diverse and highly skilled team able to keep up with a rapidly growing product.


  • 3+ years experience leading people, with a proven track record of hiring, motivating, growing, and empowering teams.

  • A drive to truly understand the reliability-related needs of your customer (our developers!) and the ability to translate those needs into effective solutions.

  • A hands-on foundation of infrastructure engineering knowledge that allows you to push your team, ask hard questions and recognize excellence.

  • Experience building and maintaining real-time, large-scale production systems.

  • Experience building with a major cloud provider and ensuring cost-effective utilization.

  • A strong command of release orchestration and infrastructure automation patterns and practices.

  • Proven ability to track and drive engineering efficiency metrics, and the wisdom to understand what they can and can’t tell you.

  • Building or managing highly distributed, high-volume services with 24/7 operational needs.

  • A plus if you have experience with AWS, CircleCI, Spinnaker, and/or CockroachDB.
