CircleCI is hiring an Engineering Manager to join and lead our SRE team. We are looking for a manager who is passionate about developing engineers, as well as establishing SRE methodologies around production excellence, scalability, observability, and automation. In this role, you will challenge and support our engineers with the individual in mind and focus on helping to build a great culture that values diversity, inclusion, action orientation, and openness!

This is a full-time role in the east coast of North America or EMEA.

About The Team

The Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) team is an enablement team built to support development teams at CircleCI in making their services scalable, reliable and performant.

This is done by two methods, the first relies on SRE driving technical changes and direction while the second is accomplished by establishing cultural norms which help to enable engineering teams.

What you’ll be doing

This role is a people management position focused on the growth of engineers. Your responsibilities will be people and process, in that order.

  • People: Attract, onboard, and retain diverse top talent. Develop people and the team through coaching, mentoring, and management support. Conduct regular 1:1s, goal setting, and feedback conversations with engineers and support them in their career path. Continuously work to improve inclusion and belonging.
  • Process and Collaboration: You will work across all of engineering to implement thoughtful SRE processes. To do so will require a high degree or collaboration and openness. You will work in the open and take those around you along for the ride
  • Technical acumen: You are not expected to code. However, you should be knowledgeable of current practices such that you can act as arbiter in a technical discussion or ask good questions of your team as they discuss a technical solution.
Who you are
  • People Management: You have proven experience managing people, including building teams and attracting top talent. Bonus points if you have done so in a fast paced startup environment.
  • Remote Work: CircleCI is a remote first company and you should have some experience leading and motivating a distributed team.
  • Progress not perfection: You do not “boil the ocean” but prefer to deliver solutions incrementally, perhaps with a little bit of experimentation along the way. Experience with agile methodologies is an asset in for this position.
  • Learning: You bring action orientation and seek to continuously improve the teams you work with. You excel in a culture centered on open communication, strong feedback, quick experimentation, blamelessness, and embracing failure to learn from it.
  • Communication: You believe in open and honest communication and work to cultivate this within the team and organization. You approach everything with an open mind and listen to different perspectives before determining a path forward.

The Denver office is collaborative, ambitious and exciting. We are located downtown near a bunch of fun bars and restaurants. Everyone comes into the office everyday looking forward to the challenge at hand, which is refreshing to start your day with!


Commercial Account Executive

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Building a business in which collaboration is a cultural norm is a team sport! Slack and video chats with team leaders and team members alike, I find the frequent sharing of our best ideas and insights really encourages team players, gains support for critical initiatives, and provides a level of trust to converse openly about difficult issues.


Senior Manager of Account Based Marketing

What makes someone successful on your team?

Our team and office culture is so engaging. It’s awesome to be in a place where we’re actively curious about what other roles in the company do and what their challenges are. That reinforces two core attributes of successful sales executives that are curiosity and passion for both our customers and our peers.


Sales Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Through cultivating open and honest communication. I encourage my team to voice their ideas, think outside of the box, and to take ownership to find creative solutions to resolve customer issues.


Senior Manager, Customer Success

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

Everyone on the team and the company can and will reach out to me. I also attend weekly stand-ups in our Denver office, regularly ask for feedback in our team slack channels, and stay in touch with managers and ICs when it comes to deals, problems, etc.
