Listing Description

This is a remote position and we're considering candidates in the US, UK, Sweden, Germany, Austria, and the Netherlands.

About the role:

We are looking for an Engineering Manager to help us grow and develop our Cloud Provider Plugins squad. Our managers take an active role in creating a productive environment for our engineers; be it through removing blockers and impediments, facilitating cross-team collaboration and understanding, or by aiding the team in helping themselves by constantly improving and refining their working practices. You’ll be responsible for managing a team of distributed engineers working across a variety of systems and helping them to perform at their best.

Our Grafana data source plugins integrate with a wide range of external sources of data to make them available in our Grafana dashboards. We aim to grow the number of integrations we have to further our mission of democratizing data.

Cloud Provider Plugins is a small squad which owns and maintains the open-source plugins that integrate with our cloud vendors, including Azure and Google. Our mission statement is “Working to make Grafana an indispensable tool to manage observability in public clouds, and nurturing the relationships with them and our community to make Grafana better.”. In order to achieve this, we are involved with collaborating with our cloud vendors and keeping engaged with the community to ensure these better integrations. This also includes building relationships to determine feature scope, understanding what functionalities we want to bring onboard for flexibility and ease of use, and designing the architecture to support this.


  • The core focus of the role is on people management but you should have enough technical skills/understanding of our stack to manage a highly technical team/product.

  • You will act as project manager as well as working with product owners to ensure the product roadmap is defined and up-to-date

  • You have a strong technical background and are capable of engaging in technical conversations and challenging teams to arrive at strong technical decisions themselves

  • You will be comfortable working with engineering teams who have a strong sense of autonomy in their decision making, be it technical or product focussed

  • While you’re great with people and adept at managing relationships, you still keep up-to-date with the latest technical trends and shifts in order to maintain and enhance your understanding of the challenges your teams face

  • Ideally you will have a Computer Science degree or equivalent experience and have worked as a Software Engineer before moving into Management

  • We work with Go and Python for application and tooling development, and Jsonnet for configuration and orchestration management

  • Familiarity with Git, Linux, Prometheus, Graphite, Influxdb and/or Elasticsearch would all be a strong advantage

  • Familiarity with public Cloud and/or Kubernetes would be a strong advantage

Your day-to-day will include:

  • Regular 1:1s to ensure your direct reports are motivated, happy and engaged

  • Coaching and mentoring of your direct reports

  • Providing continuous feedback to engineers to ensure that they can add value while maintaining high standards

  • Contributing to and reviewing design documents for upcoming features

  • Ensuring features are well-defined and ready for development

  • Advising your reports on how to break down features into tasks

  • Collaborating with our Engineering Leaders to help define and influence product strategy, roadmaps and technical designs

  • Maintaining headcount by working with our People Ops team to attract and hire talent
