Engineering Manager - Periscope

San Francisco, CA

Who we Are:

Periscope was founded on the belief that live video is a powerful source of truth and connects us in an authentic way with the world around us. We are fascinated by the idea of discovering the world through someone else’s eyes. What’s it like to see through the eyes of a protester in Ukraine? Or watch the sunrise from a hot air balloon in Cappadocia? While there are many ways to discover events, movements and places, we realized there is no better way to experience something than through live video. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but live video lets us explore the world together.

Who You Are:

  • Effectively coach, mentor and guide the technical and professional development of the members of the team

  • You have a sense of urgency, move quickly and ship things.

  • Extensive experience with backend infrastructure, distributed systems, and/or performance analysis.

  • You're experienced with performance management, career development, etc.

  • Proven track record establishing and driving technical advances, reducing tech debt and making significant improvements in systems.

  • BA/BS or higher in Computer Science (or equivalent work experience)

  • Previously managed a team of 5 or more engineers

  •  4+ years of management experience
