The best person for this role is someone that has strong team leadership skills and a collaborative spirit - someone who is comfortable saying "I don't know" and working on finding solutions rather than starting with an assumption. The team needs someone who can ask questions, learn from others and turn chaos into order. This team often takes care of highly complex component and requires someone who see the bigger picture, distill that into goals and vision for the team, and not get lost in the details.

  • 3+ years in engineering management following Agile development processes and leading a high performing development team
  • Demonstrated experience building large scale web software
  • Experience driving and managing technically challenging projects

  • Ability to communicate strategy, plans, and status at all levels of the Confluence Cloud organization
  • A relentless focus on execution
  • Ability to drive technical excellence, pushing innovation and quality
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills
  • Ability to collaborate across teams and departments to work with dependent teams and align on shared goals
  • Ability to keep teams focussed through uncertainty
  • Have a high level of empathy with our customers no matter how low on the stack your team is working
  • U.S. Bachelor or higher degree, or its equivalent, in Computer Science, Information Technology, Information Systems Management or a closely related field of study

It's great if you have the experience with:

  • AWS
  • Java
  • Reactive programming
  • Experience breaking down and decomposing monolithic applications into microservices
  • Experience with modern microservices and microservice architectures
  • Experience with the “you build it you run it” mindset - leading teams to own their software services from planning to building to operations.
