Engineering Manager, Application Team


Tennessee (Remote)

InfluxDB Cloud is the world’s leading time series database offered as a multi-cloud service, deployed and managed by InfluxData, and running in all three clouds (AWS, GCP and Azure). The Application team at InfluxData builds the UI that is the face of the InfluxDB Cloud. Today, within the Application team, we have two scrum teams, one focused on the end user functions - exploring, graphing, transforming and analyzing time series data - and another focused on the operational aspects - account management, user and organization provisioning and management, usage and billing, and metrics. As we continue to grow, we are adding a third scrum team to our Application team, and are looking for an Engineering Manager to lead the third team, and work closely with the leaders of the two existing teams to deliver a user experience that delights our users.

Engineering Management at InfluxData is a multi-faceted and highly valued role. As an Engineering Manager, you will be responsible for people management for your team, mentoring your team members, and hiring additional team members. You will manage the agile process for your team, and communicate about deliverables and schedules, in addition to providing high-level technical guidance for your team. You won’t need to be the architect for your team but you will need to be able to participate in the conversations to help them to make the right technical trade-offs.  

It’s an exciting time for you to join InfluxData as we expand our UI team. We are looking for an Engineering Manager who can guide their team while also helping us figure out how to evolve our organization.  We are looking for new perspectives, as each new hire brings a new set of experiences for us to learn from. We are open to your ideas on what you have seen work well. We want to have scrum teams that work well together, but also let each scrum team develop their own style so that the team members enjoy what they do and feel a personal connection to the products they deliver. We are looking for a candidate who values supporting and growing their team as much as their own personal achievements, who will bring their experiences to the table, and is willing to experiment and iterate as the company grows. If this sounds like a role for you, we’d love to talk to you. 

We currently support employees in the following US States: AZ, CA, CO, CT, FL, GA, ID, IL, IN, MA, MD, MN, NC, NJ, NY, OK, OH, OR, TX, UT, VA, WA.  If you are in a state we don't yet support, no worries as we can register there. Internationally, we support employees in the UK, Germany, Italy and Canada.
