Your role?

As a Software Engineering Manager, you are a generalist who can see the forest and not get lost in the details. You bring an architectural perspective to abstract problems and are able to lead teams in solving them. You perform a daily balancing act between agility and long-term orientation. You have a considerable technical background and are able to earn the respect of a team of strong technologists. You can coach engineers in career growth and align them with work that supports their goals, while at the same time providing long term value to the company.

At WarnerMedia, we care deeply about our team culture and values. As an Engineering Manager, one of your primary responsibilities will be to cultivate and advance that culture, and lead your team to do the same. We value positivity and inclusion. We want everyone to enjoy coming to work every day, and we want every person's voice to be heard. We organize ourselves cross-functionally, and empower teams to operate autonomously, but not in isolation. We recognize that business, product, and technical requirements change over time, and strive to work iteratively to meet those changes. We expect engineering teams to effectively manage technical debt, and make good tradeoffs between moving fast now and being able to move fast in the future. If you share these values, and are excited about the idea of fostering them on your team, you'll be a great fit for this role!

• Build a diverse team while encouraging a collaborative and inclusive environment
• Implement effective engineering processes and policies
• Lead projects from discovery to delivery, driving initiatives that impact the team(s) of engineers, engineering managers, and product managers.
• Drive product roadmap and initiatives and participate in technical design.
• Meet with the rest of the engineering management team to align engineering-wide priorities.
• Interface with the senior leadership team and other functional areas to ensure that most efficient solution is designed to meet business needs; ensures timelines are met.

To be a contributing member of this team, you will have a mix of these skills:
• Experience recruiting, managing, fostering, and retaining talent on a technical team.
• Experience leading software engineers.
• Ability to ship complex projects in an environment with multiple dependencies in a high impact area.
• Knowledge of the OTT industry and development for connected devices and platforms
• High level of accountability, bias to action and a desire to empower individuals on the team to perform at their best.
