About This Opportunity

As a Sr. Engineering Manager, you will lead an engineering team in an agile environment building solutions. The key to the success of this position is having strong & innovative approach to problem solving, great technical leadership, excellent communication (written and verbal, formal and informal), flexibility, and a self-motivated working style with attention to detail.

About the team:

Most developers these days concern themselves greatly with infrastructure. They spend a considerable amount of time selecting, configuring, and refreshing implementation tools. TAP's value is abstracting away the implementation of tools so that infrastructure teams can implement the right tool for the job. Further, providing contracts rather than tooling allows for providers to make changes, update, migrate, or replace components that require it. In other words, platforms are better than tools for everyone involved. Cloud and Compute's mission is to "Enhance developer experience through zero touch infrastructure" and we believe the path to that is TAP. The platform embodies what we hold as our guiding principles for infrastructure.
