About the role

Developer Infrastructure’s mission is to empower engineering to build with quality, velocity, and confidence.

To realize our mission we’re building a platform that enables Robinhood Engineering to quickly and confidently ship quality software to market. Our platform comprises the following teams: Build & CI, Testing & Analysis, Source & Artifact Control, and Developer Environments. We’re responsible for all the tooling, systems, and processes that enable engineers to traverse the software development lifecycle at Robinhood.

Our teams help engineering move quickly and safely. We find, fix, and left shift production issues back to development. We view engineering as a whole and drive systemic improvements to our development processes and culture. We sweep up and janitor anything which is generally painful. We are the last line of defense if something is wrong in engineering.

What you’ll do day-to-day

  • Operate horizontally across our Build & CI, Testing & Analysis, Source & Artifact Control, and Developer Environments teams.
  • Proactively identify and drive improvements to engineering velocity and quality.
  • Design and implement large scale systems while making the right tradeoffs between risk and long-term maintainability.
  • Apply technical leadership and expertise to our teams and all of engineering.
  • Coach and mentor engineers by giving them consistent, early, and actionable feedback.

About you

  • Experience building large scale distributed systems, infrastructure, and tooling.
  • History of proven tech leadership and experience planning and leading large projects.
  • You have built a technical vision for an org and seen your vision to fruition.
  • You have a good understanding of what metrics to drive to increase developer productivity.
  • You have a passion for mentoring junior engineers and improving engineering craftsmanship.

Bonus points

  • You’ve led an engineering productivity or developer experience team previously.
  • Experience working with geographically distributed teams.
  • Experience with Monorepos and modern build systems (ie Bazel, Buck, Pants).

Technologies we use

  • Bazel
  • Buildkite and Jenkins
  • Kubernetes
  • Python and Go
  • Intellij and VSCode

We are excited to share that Robinhood is a primarily remote company! Our mission to democratize finance for all starts with our people, and that means bringing in and supporting Robinhoodies who can best help drive our mission forward — no matter where they’re based in the country.
