Engineering Manager - Platform Team, Secure Environments



Software Engineering, Other Engineering
Posted on Wednesday, June 5, 2024

The engineering team at Chainalysis is inspired by solving the hardest technical challenges and creating products that build trust in cryptocurrencies. We’re a global organization with teams in the UK, Denmark, Canada, and the USA who thrive on the challenging work we do and doing it with other exceptionally talented teammates. Our industry changes every day and our job is to build a flexible platform that will allow us to adapt to those rapid changes.

As an engineering manager of Platform team - secure environments you’ll be in charge of evolving the platform allowing other engineering teams to ship features with confidence at the high velocity required by the rapidly evolving crypto ecosystem while meeting the compliance and security needs of our public sector customers. Your team is responsible for maintaining the balance between ease of shipping new data intensive features with ease of operating and troubleshooting as our systems are deployed in high security environments. A background in SRE will help you in working with internal stakeholders and find opportunities for improving velocity while managing risks. While experience with building on-prem systems isn't required, you have experience with improving observability in distributed and complex systems, and are excited about solving hard technical issues and building systems that can be troubleshooted with limited resources and information.

While we serve the needs of large public organizations our engineering organization is far from bureaucratic but operates a handful of high performing and highly empowered teams in a nimble and dynamic environment. Bridging the gap between the needs of our public sector customers and the rapidly changing crypto environment is part of our DNA and something we take great pride in.

In this role, you’ll:

  • Lead and empower your team of engineers who are effective and love what they do.

  • Hire exceptional people to grow your team(s) with a focus on diversity, scalability, and always raising the bar.

  • Build relationships with the Product Management team based on credibility and candor that result in lofty goals, clear objectives, and confidence that you’ll meet them. Work with PMs and your team to set clear objectives and deliver on them.

  • Help the entire engineering team get better at what we do through building smarter ways of working.

We’re looking for candidates who have:

  • Excellent knowledge of the FedRAMP landscape, operating constraints, and risk

  • Prior experience operating services in a highly compliant and/or constrained environment

  • A software or data engineering background (and you secretly put your hands on the keyboard when you get a chance.)

  • Managed a diverse team of impactful engineers, ideally in a fast-growing startup.

  • Experience hiring engineers and working closely with recruiters as a team.

  • Aren’t afraid to jump into a problem and get it sorted, even if it’s outside of your day-to-day role.

  • Have an interest in cryptocurrencies or a desire to learn - we can help!

  • This role requires that you are a citizen of the United States

Nice to have experience:

  • You are passionate or curious about the Blockchain, Crypto, Web 3 space

Technologies we use:

  • Kubernetes
