Engineering Manager, Developer Infrastructure


Engineering Manager, Developer Infrastructure at Airbnb

Airbnb’s mission is to create a world where people can Belong Anywhere. As we grow to achieve that mission, we’re looking to add highly technical, hands-on, and mission-driven Engineering Managers to lead our engineering efforts.

As an Engineering Manager on the Developer Platform team, you’ll lead a team of talented engineers that owns the infrastructure that all Airbnb engineers use to write and ship high quality code at scale.  Our team is impactful and high-leverage: we work every day to make the entire engineering organization more productive.

Some examples of current infrastructure work:

  • Scaling up our in-house CI/CD system, the largest distributed system at Airbnb.
  • Enhancing our cloud-based development environment, which uses Kubernetes and Docker to provide every developer with their own private replica of Airbnb.
  • Creating our next-generation continuous-integration and continuous delivery systems.
  • Providing fast, stable builds and tests across our entire tech stack.
  • Creating infrastructure, frameworks and environments to run end-to-end integration tests, including a platform for fast, deterministic UI tests for Android [blog post, github].
  • Adding support for mixed-language (ObjC / Swift) iOS development to Buck [blog post, now in Buck core].

We value Engineering Managers who have:

  • Required: 5+ years of relevant engineering work experience and 3+ hands-on technical management experience
  • Exceptional coding abilities and experience with architectural patterns of large, high-scale applications
  • Led operations for high availability production systems.
  • Been actively involved in setting infrastructure related roadmaps and product strategy.
  • Excelled at building highly-functional, healthy, inclusive and collaborative teams.
  • Actively coached and mentored team members in their careers
  • Track record in partnering with recruiting to build incredible engineering teams
