Engineering Manager

We’re looking for an Engineering Manager who can bring a fresh perspective, capable of getting hands-on with the code, and can lead this team to further success.

“Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.” – Peter Drucker.

Are you looking to work for a team that is 100% committed to open-source technology? There are few opportunities out there like this one. Every contribution made as a part of this team helps make the open-source ecosystem stronger.

This position requires dynamic leadership from someone who can keep up with senior software developers and understand a complex code-base deeply.

In the words of Megan Smith: “I think open source is an evolutionary idea for humanity, this idea of transparency. It played out for us in the technology world, but it also played out with the idea of a truth and reconciliation commission and Wikipedia.” 

The future lies ahead, a tomorrow that is full of opportunities to collaborate with some of the most proficient developers in the industry, communicating daily to resolve critical issues. 

We expect that this position will involve coding about 25% of the time. So if you don’t want to miss out on programming, this might be the perfect opportunity for you.

To do great in this role, you will need:

  • Experience as Lead, managing at least teams of 3-5 people.
  • Strong leadership and management skills.
  • Experience dealing with external clients and partners.
  • Experience with Python codebases and Bash.
  • Robust and practical experience with Microsoft Azure, Google's GCP, or Amazon AWS with their cloud services and other product offerings.
  • Experience designing, writing, and maintaining cloud-based applications leveraging its service offering (e.g., EC2+S3+dynamoDB)
  • Experience with containers.
  • Project management skills.
  • Experience setting up CI/CD pipelines, such as Jenkins, CircleCI, Github, AzureDevOps, or similar.
  • Experience interacting with one of the major cloud platforms via their SDKs for automation
  • Strong experience in Ubuntu/Debian system administration or Linux.

This is a fully remote opportunity, and it will always be. This particular team is significant, and they would like someone who can travel about four times per year to the US to visit partners. This client is very stable and poses an excellent opportunity for someone who likes challenges and values stability.

This role also offers the support of one of the best teams globally and the chance to grow your professional career in the open-source industry.
