Databases are the beating heart of every business in the world.

Cockroach Labs is the team behind CockroachDB, an open source, distributed SQL database.  We aim to build infrastructure that keeps pace with the world, so developers can focus on what matters most: building the best products. Join us on our mission to enable every developer to build world-changing applications. 

About the Role

We are looking for a passionate & highly driven individual to manage programs & initiatives within engineering. Reporting to the Engineering Operations lead, this person will be responsible for enabling our engineering team by developing & executing engineering programs, from onboarding, to release planning (and more!). The ideal candidate will be able to understand the teams needs & opportunities, bring together cross-functional groups to address them, & independently drive initiatives to completion. In addition to being organized & analytical, you possess the strong business judgment & communication skills needed to interact with a variety of people & job functions. You can look at the big picture & prioritize whats most important for the engineering organization as a whole, while still rolling up your sleeves & executing on the details.

You Will

  • Drive process improvements across the engineering team  (e.g., contractor management, coordinating release schedules, planning & delivery, etc).
  • Drive operational excellence by managing regular reporting of engineering metrics.
  • Develop & run an engineering onboarding program, partnering with people operations & engineers to ensure that our new hires are set up for success.
  • Standardize & facilitate the creation of documentation on our internal platforms.
  • Serve as the point person for ad-hoc projects, as required.

The Expectations

In your first 30 days, you will assess where we are with our engineering processes & where we should be. This will include a deep-dive into our existing tools.  We believe that it's important for you to take this first month to become familiar with our technology & our company.

After 3 months, you'll be fully integrated into the team. You will run processes within the engineering team & continue to identify improvements to those processes. 

You Have

  • 3+ years of Technical Program Management experience.
  • Expertise and/or admin certifications in project management tools, specifically the Atlassian suite (Jira, Confluence, Jira Service Management).
  • Experience managing & delivering cross-functional programs & handling dependencies & multiple competing priorities.
  • Motivated to think independently & to devise creative ways to continually improve our engineering organization.
  • Analytical experience & comfortable using data to identify themes, prioritize issues, & communicate key takeaways.
  • Strong communication skills & experience collaborating with a diverse range of people & job functions.
  • Ability to juggle multiple projects & requests simultaneously.

Our Benefits

  • 100% health insurance option (for you & your dependents!)
  • Paid parental leave (with baby bucks)
  • Flex Fridays
  • Flexible time off & flexible hours
  • Learning & Development budget
  • Relocation support
