We are looking for a dynamic new member to join our team of Release Managers. You will be part of the team responsible for managing and coordinating releases of our products to over a million developers and billions of end-users. We work with R&D with a global mission of improving the way we deliver outstanding quality to our users and your contribution will be key to the team's success in achieving that mission. Your impact will be felt across the org as a central point of contact for release planning and execution for a growing and hugely exciting product portfolio!

  • Delivering weekly releases to internal QA, to alpha/beta testing groups and to live customers. Monitoring release metrics to maintain a comprehensive picture of release health and to report to key partners.
  • Working with repository and infrastructure maintainers to improve build stability and test coverage.
  • Coordinating internal communications about the releases and associated processes to audiences with varying technical fluency, from executives to developers.

What we’re looking for

  • Experience managing product releases or projects with sophisticated dependencies and multiple contributors and delivering on time-based release schedules.
  • Software development experience, ideally C++ or C#.
  • Experience with version control systems such as Git, Mercurial or Perforce and a solid understanding of CI-CD principles.
  • Excellent communication skills and an ability to navigate constantly evolving situations.
  • Experience working with geographically diverse teams.

You might also have
