What we look for:

  • Experience attracting, hiring, and coaching engineers who meet the Databricks hiring standards; can up level existing team by hiring top-notch senior talent, growing leaders and helping struggling members; can gain the trust of the team and guide their careers
  • Experience building and running cloud platforms or learning new concepts in the SaaS space (e.g. technical background)
