ArangoDB is an open-source, highly scalable Graph Database with Multi-Model capabilities. In addition to graph, it is natively supporting a number of data-models including document, and key-value as well as Full-Text Search and Retrieval. It serves as the scalable backbone for Graph-Analytics and complex data architectures across many different industries. Developers can build high-performance applications using a convenient SQL-like query language or JavaScript extensions. Oh, and did we mention it is open source?

Our goal is to make working with data easy. And because we want to make it simpler for others, we work on solving complex problems with many Engineers distributed across different teams and continents. To coordinate such a distributed team (as well as database) we are looking for an experienced Engineering Manager with experience with coordinating and scaling teams. Ideally, you also have experience (or curiosity) in Databases, Graph Analytics, or Machine Learning.

Our headquarter is in San Francisco (US), we have an office in Cologne (Germany), but most of our diverse team works remotely worldwide. Since the majority of the Engineering team members are working from Central Europe, candidates in this location & time zone are preferred. So do you prefer your desk at home or do you want to join us at one of our locations? Your choice!

Your Role:

  • You are responsible for the day-to-day management of the ArangoDB Engineering teams
  • You work closely with our CTO to coordinate on product requirements and engineering feedback
  • You coordinate amongst our development teams who are currently distributed across locations e.g., Germany, Austria, Poland, etc.
  • You will interact with the QA team ensuring the mutual feedback is coordinated between Engineering and QA (as well as other stakeholders)

Your Skills:

  • You already have experience in managing a team and you have a passion for working with people and challenging technology problems
  • You bring 5+ years of previous experience in system engineering or similar to the table
  • You enjoy communicating with and between different stakeholders such as customers or product management
  • You have experience with agile development such as Scrum
  • Bonus points for experience with Databases, Graph Analytics and Machine Learning as well as Cloud Services
