Engineering Manager, Infrastructure

Build the programs to help Flexport grow

The opportunity

The Developer Experience team is rapidly growing and we are looking for an Engineering Manager to join the team that focuses on improving developer pipelines and integrating changes more frequently. The team is responsible for our delivery pipeline infrastructure. We develop the CI/CD paved path, which makes service integration and deployment easier. Developers can use this infrastructure to own and integrate their services. The team defines and supports various deployment models (Blue-Green, Canary, Rolling) as well as release orchestration and automation gates (image scanning, dependency checks, testing, production readiness, SDLC best practices and policies). Our applications are currently running on Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS), but with our recent migration to Service-oriented architecture (SOA), we’re starting to push the limits. We have begun deploying services to the Flexport Kubernetes Engine (FKE) and want to continue helping our developers use this infrastructure to own and integrate their services.

You will:

  • Recruit, build, and lead the team developing the tools that enable rapid software development of our services and applications.
  • Create a strong product and architectural vision with a demonstrated ability to communicate, advocate, and execute on that vision.
  • Collaborate across engineering teams to align project priorities and requirements.
  • Represent your team with leaders across different parts of our organization.
  • Participate in critical technical design and product discussions of various initiatives. 
  • Invest in the development and coaching required for each team member’s success.
  • Manage, measure, and communicate the team's progress toward goals.

You should have:

  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or equivalent practical experience.
  • Demonstrated experience leading teams that built and operated critical developer tooling.
  • Experience with K8S and CI/CD tools, including the benefits and challenges.
