We are continuously leveraging new technology to build immersive and interactive viewing experiences. Our platform covers everything from search, catalog, and video transcoding, to personalization, global subscriptions, and more. We are committed to delivering quality user experiences, ranging from video streaming to applications across connected TV, mobile, web and consoles. As a pure tech organization, we are essential to Warner Bros. Discovery’s continued growth, building world-class products from the ground-up for our iconic brands like HBO Max, Discovery Channel, CNN, Food Network, HGTV, Eurosport, MotorTrend, and many more.

Who You Are

The ideal candidate has an established track record of building new or elevating existing software teams. You know how to establish a team’s identity and how to define the way in which that team works within a larger organization. You have mastered the ability to delegate - at both the task and project level - to appropriate team members and are able to ensure that the right results are achieved even without your constant oversight. You are a leader that people turn to when they want to build something new as you can align with company priorities and processes, or even create new ones when necessary.  You have a mix of skills that focus on event driven architecture and software delivery automation.


What You’ll Do

As an Engineering Manager in the Delivery Pipelines team within the Release and Delivery Engineering organization, you’ll be joining a group that is responsible for building a truly global, self-service cloud platform (PaaS) to enable DTC’s growing number of engineering teams to build, test, deploy, and manage the complete operational life cycle of their services in a fully autonomous fashion. Specifically you will be leading a team responsible for creating a delivery system that other engineering teams will use to automate the delivery of their application at scale. You will help drive technical decision-making, particularly with regard to the architectural direction of the platform components for building software. Your team is responsible for being the glue between build and deployment and will need to integrate with several other software development tools.  Your team focuses on providing a simple process and set of tools for application teams to leverage so that they can build and deliver their application with quality and velocity.


You will help set the tone for how your team operates. You’ll insist on modern, rigorous software development practices that emphasize testability, repeatability, and self-service automation. You’ll mentor your team and help grow your developers into leaders. You’ll openly collaborate with other teams’ managers and help raise the bar of engineering excellence across the entire organization.
