Segment is hiring an

Engineering Manager, Vancouver

Vancouver, Canada

Overview

At Segment, we believe companies should be able to send their data wherever they want, whenever they want, with no fuss. We make this easy with a single platform that collects, stores and sends data to hundreds of business tools with the flick of a switch. Our goal is to make using data easy, and we’re excited for people to join us on the journey. We’re growing incredibly fast — this is the perfect opportunity to roll up your sleeves and drive an incredible amount of business impact at a hyper-growth company.
Two of our earliest engineers moved to Vancouver and we decided to place a big bet on opening a Vancouver engineering office. We are hiring an engineering manager and Vancouver site lead to lead the build-out of this office. You will be responsible for bringing our engineering brand to Vancouver, hiring a Vancouver arm for our extraordinary engineering team (focused primarily on infrastructure), and leading the team.
Our infrastructure is mostly written in Go (we’re huge fans!), uses Docker containers for our 70 different microservices, and we use the latest and greatest from AWS. Our small team is providing the data infrastructure for thousands of companies, and as a result we’re already processing terabytes of data (4 to 5 billion events per day). We’re rapidly scaling our systems to keep up with our dramatic growth and are looking for folks who love Kafka, NSQ, NoSQL databases, and distributed systems of every flavor.
 
We recently wrote this post about cutting our AWS bill by over one million dollars annually. If you want to learn more about what types of problems our engineering team takes on, this is a great place to start reading! 
 
We have a fantastic landing team in Vancouver and excited to have you help us turn this into an engineering powerhouse.

You will

  • Represent and cultivate the Segment engineering brand in Vancouver
  • Lead, coach, and grow our team of world-class engineers in Vancouver
  • Do what needs to be done to maintain an amazing Vancouver office
  • Work closely with Segment’s Engineering and Product leadership to chart out a compelling Product and Engineering roadmap.

About You

  • 3+ years of engineering management experience
  • Strong understanding of distributed systems design
  • Proven ability to collaborate effectively with other teams in an fast-evolving environment 
  • Significant experience hiring extraordinary engineering talent in Vancouver
  • Experience growing startups during a hyper-growth phase a huge plus
