This Senior Manager for Engineering will lead critical services within our Data and Stream Processing umbrella. Success will be measured by your ability to build and lead your team as part of our overall engineering strategy. You will seamlessly integrate within our deeply innovative culture and contribute to our excellent record for delivering market leading solutions. You are a seasoned leader with a demonstrated history building and leading both established and emerging engineering talent, while fostering an environment of inclusion, creativity, and innovation.

Ingestion and Data Processing team is a dynamic technology group with a mission to be the primary data processing path for any type of data transformation and routing activity in near real-time. If you possess a passion for extraordinary technology and embrace the challenge of working at the frontier of what is possible in the industry today, then this position is for you. We are building state-of-the-art capabilities, real-time messaging and streaming systems, support tools, and automation instrumentation that will greatly impact how our customers successfully use data to improve their businesses performance, scalability, profitability, and market strategies. We have two teams in rapid growth:

  • Stream Processing Service (SPS) is built on top of Apache Flink, is a stream processing platform that allows customers to define stream processing pipelines without lower-level programming languages. SPS includes the ingestion, routing, and processing of unbounded data sets and reduces the time-to-insights from days to near-real-time. SPS is a critical component to enable our customers and their data to transition seamlessly to the cloud.

  • Messaging as a Service (Maas) is based on Apache Pulsar and provides a streaming event store for multiple sources arriving into Splunk Cloud. MaaS is a streaming message store that allows consumers to store, partition, and consume streaming events with high throughput and low latency. It aims to be the event streaming backbone for Splunk Cloud and is integral to the Data Processing ecosystem similar to the interaction between RAM and CPUs in computers.

    In this role, you will

  • Hire and grow an elite team within the Data Processing Engineering organization, focused on making our industry leading technology even more valuable to our customers.

  • Diagnose and resolve systemic obstacles that prevent your team from delivering high-quality software.

  • Champion an atmosphere of continuous improvement by serving as a coach, mentor, and technical advisor.

  • Plan and support career development.

  • Recruit and retain top talent.

  • Be an advocate of scalable and extensible, recoverable, manageable architecture for Core products and services.


    To be a successful candidate, you have:

  • Experience leading engineering teams working on solutions to deeply challenging problems in processing data at massive scale.

  • Experience hiring and cultivating teams.

  • Experience developing new products, either in small companies or within the context of larger organizations. A mix of start-up and bigger company experience is a plus.

  • Experience working within geographically distributed organizations.

  • Experience building and cultivating strong engineering practices and processes.

  • Consistent track record of delivering scalable, high performance, and high quality software systems.

  • Broad understanding of various cloud development technologies and trends for enterprise-scale, distributed systems.

  • Strong technical acumen, creativity, interpersonal skills, and emotional intelligence.

    We value diversity at our company. All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, or any other applicable legally protected characteristics in the location in which the candidate is applying.

    For job positions in San Francisco, CA, and other locations where required, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records.
