As a Senior Build Engineer, you will be the first hire fully dedicated to owning the automation and optimization of build, test, integration, and release processes for the Voice AI technologies powering the Houndify platform.  We deploy Cloud-based services at scale and also offer embedded solutions.  Your focus on the build systems will be at the center of all the action.

This position is ideal for someone who is excited about solving challenging technical problems related to build and release systems. You will be joining a deeply technical culture where our management team values the engineering mindset you bring.

What you will be doing:

  • Configure, maintain, and extensively build upon deployments of industry-standard tools (Jenkins, CMake, Jira, etc)
  • Design and deliver tools and processes that increase efficiency, maintainability, and stability of development process
  • Drive core technical decisions around standardization of build systems and developer workflow
  • Ensure builds and deployments run smoothly, working appropriately with codebase owners to debug any problems

What you bring:

  • BS in CS/EE or equivalent experience
  • Extensive track record (multiple years) of managing builds/release systems at scale
  • Deep knowledge of standard tools and scripting languages (python, bash, or perl), and ability to adopt the right mix of supplemental customizations
  • Ability to work in a highly self-directed fashion, analyzing current state of systems, generating a plan, and then taking action without always waiting for explicit guidance

Nice to haves:

  • Deep C++ experience
  • Prior start-up experience
  • Experience mentoring other engineers and advocating for best practices
  • Exposure to audio, speech, mobile, and related technologies
