Infrastructure Engineering Manager

Moz is looking for an engineering manager for the Technical Operations Engineering team who is responsible for system engineering and operational support for datacenter based hardware and software. This team designs, manages, and administers networks, and systems, including servers, storage, switches, database, virtualization, routers and firewalls. Some of the activities for this team include assessment, design, implementation, configuration, documentation, coordination, control, maintenance, troubleshooting, security, usage monitoring and the development of specialized procedures for systems. They are also responsible for capacity planning, tuning, system monitoring, system performance and problem resolution across all aspects of the infrastructure.

What's important to us

* Servant-Leadership. Our teams thrive through coaching and enabling rather than getting directions. We strive to be supportive, patient, and people-focused.

* Technical savvy. Being technically knowledgeable is good, but having an informed point-of-view for how to make good decisions and deliver quality technical work is key for sustaining quality products.

* A commitment to shipping. It's important to deliver, and we value getting our projects completed and out the door quickly.

* Curiosity and motivation to learn. Our industry is always changing and iterating on more efficient ways to do things, we are committed to continuous learning and inspire our teams to be curious and willing to adapt to new things.

* Bias for repeatability. We have intense desire to eliminate doing things manually whenever it makes sense.

* Collaboration. Team-focused communication, knowledge-sharing, and problem solving make us more effective.

* Diversity & Inclusivity. Moz is committed to building diverse teams where people of all identities and backgrounds are welcome, included, and respected. We work to help close the gender gap in tech, and to actively recruit people from other underrepresented groups. We strongly encourage women, gender diverse people, and minority candidates to apply for this role.
