We are hiring an engineering manager to lead our Client Performance and Stability team, which builds the tooling and infrastructure to monitor and improve performance and stability metrics of our Android, iOS, and web apps. This team works with product groups across the company to monitor new crashes, regressions in rendering performance, and improve overall responsiveness of our apps. The team integrates performance and stability metrics into our experiment analyses to automate finding what parts of the codebase need attention. At the same time, the team leads architectural initiatives to revamp the slowest parts of the app and advocate for design patterns that make code easy to write with performance and stability in mind.

As the Engineering Manager of the Client Performance and Stability team, you will craft a vision for supporting a growing group of over 75 client engineers (50% year-over-year) to maintain a performant and stable app for Duolingo’s learners. In this role, you will coordinate and execute the vision for: determining which projects the team should work on, collaborating with stakeholders and engineering teams across the company, and creating technical specifications and roadmaps.

You Will...

  • Manage a team of software engineers, including task planning and code reviews.
  • Create a roadmap for performance and stability infrastructure work within the team and coordinate that planning with product engineering throughout the company.
  • Plan, write and review service specifications to determine how Duolingo’s infrastructure is architected.
  • Drive technical projects and provide leadership in an innovative and fast-paced environment.
  • Be responsible for the overall planning, execution and success of complex technical projects.
  • Work closely across the Engineering organization to ensure we are building the best products.
  • Identify best practices and tools to develop to maximize the ability to build and maintain scalable services and execute on those projects.
  • Contribute technically to projects.

You Have...
