Engineering Manager - Flexible Platform (Custom Objects)
PagerDuty (View all Jobs)
1. Zoom / on-site pair programming and tasks
We are interviewing and onboarding 100% virtually at this time. PagerDuty is focused on inclusion and employee well-being by building a culture that isn’t location specific and gives equal opportunity to everyone—regardless of where you are working. Unless your job requirements make it necessary to be in a company office, you may choose to work in-office, remotely, or hybrid.
As Engineering Manager of the Objects and Workflows Platform team you'll lead a team of software engineers who are responsible for the platform that powers the lifecycle of every incident/real-time work object sent to a customer. We are looking for an individual who has a strong track record of software delivery and can develop relationships across various teams. You can still code if needed (though that won’t be the primary function of this role) and have opinions on what good code looks like. You also have experience working on large scale systems and/or data pipelines and know the pitfalls that can come with under/over engineering
Why We Need You
You’ll help PagerDuty through a highly strategic transformation from a pure product to a platform. PagerDuty is transitioning from a set of products to a platform that consists of a set of configurable, flexible building blocks that can be leveraged to manage a variety of real-time work and real-time workflows. Come help us kick off the new Platform group, which will consist of a new set of product development teams who are building the building blocks of the new PagerDuty Platform.
In this role, you’ll play a key role in working to define and build a set of platform building blocks to manage real-time work and real-time workflows. We’re also working closely with customers and partners to better understand their needs as it comes to platform flexibility and customizability; our larger, more sophisticated customers, in particular, are asking for a high level of customizability in terms of how they manage real-time work (such as alerts, incidents, post-mortems, security events, etc).
