Engineering Manager

About the Department   You'll be a part of the Cloudflare Radar and Data Insights Lisbon Engineering team. This team will be working on data-driven projects, launching new products and functionalities, and exploring emerging technologies. We operate with small groups of highly motivated and experienced software, data science, and software engineers who like to solve problems. We work to meet both the challenges of a massively growing customer base and our internal department's needs.

What you'll do 

You will lead a team of passionate, talented engineers that are building innovative products and launching features that touch billions of web requests each day. In this role, you will introduce tools and processes to make our engineer's lives better. You will play an active part in shaping product strategy and vision based on what's technically possible from an engineering standpoint.

You bring a passion for meeting business needs with building technically innovative solutions and excel at shifting between the two—understanding how big-picture goals inform technical details and vice-versa. You thrive in a fast-paced, iterative engineering environment and have experience in delivering scalable distributed systems. Most importantly, you will have a track record of having past teams respect you as both a technical leader and manager.
