We're looking for an experienced engineering manager to help lead a distributed team of Platform Reliability Engineers. This role is not about dictating or managing a team member’s work directly, but rather guiding and serving to ensure the happiness and productivity of the team. The primary goal of this job is to enable every team member to do the best work of their lives.
Platform Reliability Engineering (PRE) is part of the Production Engineering group, which is responsible for keeping GitHub robust, resilient, and available while moving at high velocity. While PRE has heavy application development slant, candidates can put SRE experience to use on this team.
The Engineering organization is highly distributed and the right candidate can thrive in an environment of asynchronous communication. We expect you to have strong written communication skills and be able to create working relationships with coworkers in locations around the globe.
- Guiding the development team's vision, best practices, and priorities
- Meeting 1-1 with team members on a regular basis
- Planning and supporting career development
- Be a senior technical leader on the team
You and the team will be responsible for:
- Scale our applications across multiple regions
- Improve site performance
- Increasing fault-tolerance across all systems
- Coordinating work with engineering teams across the stack
- 3+ years managing engineering teams
- Experience building and scaling distributed, highly available systems.
- Strong written and verbal communication skills
