Job Description

We are looking for a Senior Engineering Manager to join our client that is a successful Telecommunications company headquartered in San Francisco, CA and an office in Ontario, Canada

As a Development Manager, you will work on a highly scaled distributed system that receives hundreds of millions of calls/messages and terabytes of raw data in real-time per day. Facing some of the most difficult challenges in modern software engineering, your team will power the core of a system relied on every day by millions of users. They leverage cutting-edge tools, software, and open-source, where it makes sense. If you enjoy working in a highly collaborative, multidisciplinary, fast environment, you will find this role highly rewarding.

Teams are small, and they look for keen and talented leaders who are individual contributors with a desire and passion for leading and mentoring others. You can expect to spend at least half your time providing technical leadership through architecture discussions, code reviews, and setting best practices, with the remainder of your time split between people management and hands-on development.

  • Work closely and cross-functionally with other leaders to align technical vision to product and operational needs and contribute to design and architecture decisions
  • Take part in an on-call rotation to maintain their users’ trust

  • Someone who takes action and ownership with a 5+ years of proven experience growing employees through career development, coaching, and mentoring while guiding senior contributors to maximize their potential.

  • Respectfully candid with the ability to lead and grow a team of passionate engineers to join our distributed team
  • A bold risk-taker and self-starter who can collaborate on roadmaps with Product Managers, Architects, and Tech Leads to ensure the team has clear direction and priorities. You will operate and maintain company’ s client applications and supporting foundational services
  • Resourceful and scrappy with 10+ years of experience of building highly scalable consumer facing applications and helping to guide teams through tech choices in order to deliver resilient, highly available services
