We are looking for a technical leader to join our growing engineering team at Teachable. Our engineering team is structured into small pods of three to eight engineers, each led by a pod lead. For this role you will oversee our three person Infrastructure Team, supporting team members & ensuring the successful execution of their projects & operations.
The Infrastructure team at Teachable owns our AWS infrastructure & deployment pipelines, along with being the point team for security issues & most DevOps efforts, though our on-call rotations include both product engineers along with infra engineers.
While your primary responsibility will not be writing critical path code, as the team is still relatively small you will spend a good chunk of your time initially doing hands-on work in addition to providing technical leadership & people management for the team. You achieve results not through micromanagement, but rather by empowering your team & helping them to run autonomously to deliver great work. You are a people manager who cares about the well-being & growth of your engineers, you have experience coaching your team members to success & developing their careers. You have extensive experience working with cloud providers, ideally AWS & working in a dockerized environment.
