Join us in Splunk Platform where we build and operate mission-critical services enabling customers and developers to collect, visualize, and discover value from their data.
Splunk Platform is looking for a seasoned engineering leader to help develop and grow our Data Platform organization, which includes storage, indexing, search, query federation, and SPL, the Splunk query language. Search is the heart of a data company, and a performant, innovative, and scalable data platform is the key to Splunk’s past, present, and future success. This is a highly-visible role, as you will own many of the projects essential not only to our near-term success, but also developing critical new IP that will create the next generation of Splunk searching and user experiences.
You are someone who thrives in a dynamic environment and has a track record of technical expertise and management responsibility, as well as leading distributed organizations. As we drive forward for the success of our customers you will hold the team accountable to achieve goals of engineering excellence and product value.
Your job includes collaborating closely with your peers across all engineering areas as well as product management, program management, SRE, SDET, and UX. We want you to enable every team member to do the best work of their lives.
You will be in high demand and this role requires a strong leader who brings a ton of empathy while holding the line of high quality and frequent product releases. You will provide enough structure to bring about prioritization of work that has the biggest impact for Splunk’s customers, while allowing flexibility and empowerment of teams to deliver beyond our customers’ expectations.
You will bring vision and creativity to the organization, guiding the team on when we need clever computer science solutions, or when we should change our approach. You will be partnering closely with product to create and drive roadmaps and multi-year strategies, and integrate closely with both internal and external customers to figure out how to continue to delight them with what we have available.
