  • Work closely with DevOps to create a scalable architecture for our cloud and on-premise customers.
  • Work closely with product, success, and growth teams to help inform business decisions, manage expectations, communicate our roadmap, and coordinate engineering work with product improvements.
  • Mentor and grow our the team.
Our ideal candidate:
  • We believe in processes and the power of planning, but you will often have to roll with the punches and prioritize the most impactful tasks on the fly.
  • Has experience architecting and building systems for large SaaS products.
  • Has 5+ years of experience at a large software company.
  • Has experience with a high-volume product.
