About the role:

Chartboost is looking for an experienced Engineering Manager to lead and grow our DevOps and IT teams and take our mission-critical infrastructure to the next level. You will be a key member of a team that scales our provisioning, deployment, traffic management, monitoring, and shared infrastructure services.

  • Hire intelligently. Identify critical needs and fill positions with the best people available
  • Manage a mostly autonomous IT Team that owns the SF office networking, onboarding/offboarding processes, device inventories, etc.
  • Be cost-conscious: use money wisely on infrastructure costs, especially as we continue to grow month over month. Expand our ability to scale elastically, and work closely with our engineering team to make this possible. Work with vendors to reduce costs of annual contracts
  • Own and maintain our deployment systems (Spinnaker), ensuring that once built, services can be quickly and reliably deployed to staging and production environments
  • Own our monitoring and alerting systems for our core infrastructure, perform periodic audits, and ensure that we know what’s happening in production and are notified if anything needs attention

  • Experience operating production services on GCP/AWS
