LiveRamp is looking for an Engineering Manager to help support and grow developers in our Big Data Infrastructure organization. As an Engineering Manager, you are responsible for helping your developers be successful by setting context, resolving blockers, removing distractions, instituting smart processes, and recruiting new members for the team, all while remaining hands on and writing code daily. This role is the perfect fit for those who wish to hone their management skils without having to give up the ability to write code.
The LiveRamp engineering team has spent the last year planning and executing the massive migration of our entire environment to GCP which has been outlined in this blog post. We also had the opportunity to share our experience in more detail at Google Cloud NEXT which can be viewed here. We're a few months away from the finish line, and we're ecstatic to have the opportunity to rethink how our applications work using the wide array of new tools available to us.
You have the ability to guide engineers in their development and create a fun and productive workplace environment. You also have the technical background to serve as a sounding board to the engineers on your team on major projects and still desire to be ‘hands-on’. We value integrity, empowerment, initiative, and teamwork, and our leaders cultivate these behaviors in the organization.
- Build tooling to assist 60+ fellow developers writing hundreds of big data applications on our infrastructure.
- Help recruit and act as a leader within a growing team of engineers.
- Ensure operational excellence and empower the organization to achieve a high level of technical productivity, reliability and simplicity.
- Foster a positive environment of integrity, empowerment, initiative and teamwork.
- Be a coach to the engineers on the team, helping them succeed in their current role while preparing them for future roles.
- Bring a wealth of best practices from past experiences to the team.
Your team will:
- Maintain and scale our Big Data Infrastructure.
- Engineer scalable data processing engines.
- Build tools to empower LiveRamp’s developers to operate effectively and efficiently.
- Deliver on the technical roadmap for LiveRamp’s core product offerings.
- Have 6+ years developing big-data applications.

- Contributions to open source projects.
