Engineering Manager - Data Infrastructure

Manager, Engineering

About the Role:

The Data Infrastructure Engineering Manager role offers a great opportunity to help build out a team which is crucial within the Maps ecosystem. This role is responsible for both deployments with existing services, but also extending these systems for new services (e.g. next generation routing systems) and new capabilities (e.g. building out a robust experimentation platform). To achieve all this, we need a strong technical manager who is great at collaborating across teams and who knows how to build scalable, reliable distributed systems. We have big plans for this team, and we want a manager who can drive the team to new heights!

What You'll Do

  • Define the roadmap including existing technology and future systems
  • Expand scope - currently focused on routing data, but the plan is to expand to all map data
  • Partner across the Maps team to understand needs and deliver solutions to solve those needs
  • Grow the team - both in terms of numbers, but also in terms of individual career growth

What You'll Need

  • Hands on technical manager - you have managed teams for 5+ years and can drive the technical direction of the platform, are able to lead design/architecture sessions, understand trade-offs, and are not afraid to make the hard choices.
  • Experience in building distributed systems - have built highly scalable, robust, distributed and fault-tolerant systems based on open source technologies and know how to innovate on top of these systems.
  • Good collaborative approach across multiple teams - know how to lead your team to deliver, and how to collaborate with other teams across the company to drive a compelling shared vision.
  • Vision to be able to define a roadmap - can understand the current state of the world, and also see where the future needs to be, and can make a plan how to get there
  • Ability to grow a team - you have grown a diverse engineering team beyond what you inherited and are a strong interviewer who constantly raises the bar.

Bonus Points

  • Experience working across sites
  • Familiarity with: Cassandra, MySQL, Mesos, AWS, Kafka
  • MS or PhD in Computer Science, Distributed Systems, or a related field.
