Company: Twilio

See yourself at Twilio

Join the team as our next Sr. Manager, Data Engineering, Data Platform and Analytics. 

Who we are & why we’re hiring

Twilio powers real-time business communications and data solutions that help companies and developers worldwide build better applications and customer experiences.

Although we're headquartered in San Francisco, we have presence throughout South America, Europe, Asia and Australia. We're on a journey to becoming a globally anti-racist, anti-oppressive, anti-bias company that actively opposes racism and all forms of oppression and bias. At Twilio, we support diversity, equity & inclusion wherever we do business. We employ thousands of Twilions worldwide, and we're looking for more builders, creators, and visionaries to help fuel our growth momentum.

About the job

This position is needed to set the vision for and deliver on low/no-code ETL and other data engineering tools to make it easy for Twilions to rapidly transform, store and query data.  Your team will also be responsible for managing a Spark compute platform that’s used across Twilio and the underlying Data lake. You will be responsible for deciding the future direction for the Data lake’s table formats and consolidating multiple Data lakes into a single entity.

We live in a world that’s filled with vast amounts of data. The modern data stack has many tools and components. Yet it’s not easy to quickly get insights from data, especially at large scale, when data is distributed in many locations, and stored in multiple formats. Your mission is to make it easy to transform data and aggregate data, regardless of where it lives, and eventually build an elegant query interface that makes asking questions of data, a truly simple experience. 


In this role, you’ll:

  • Hire and develop a diverse and inclusive team of top performers.
  • Set a vision for your team in partnership with product management
  • Ship innovative solutions to challenging technical problems
  • Build the next generation of a Spark compute platform and the next version of our Data lake
  • Coach and guide your team on various aspects of the software development lifecycle
  • Live the Twilio Magic

  • 6+ years of experience writing production-grade code in a modern programming language.
  • 5+ years of people management experience.
  • Experience having built part of a modern data stack, from design to production code.
  • Experience hiring top talent and driving career growth for early-in-career and senior engineers.
  • The ability to set ambitious goals with measurable results and familiarity with frameworks such as OKRs.
  • A proven track record of delivering complex, large-scale projects.
  • Experience working with product managers to collaboratively set a vision.
  • Excellent written and spoken communication skills.
  • Deep technical knowledge about one or more of Spark, dbt, Hudi, Iceberg and Deltalake.
  • Clear understanding of the software development lifecycle from reviewing requirements to debugging complex systems in production.
  • ​​​​Experience maintaining and operating always-on cloud services.
