Under Armour is all about performance. Because what we make empowers athletes in every form to push themselves, to turn good into great, and to stay hungry for whatever comes next. And this is exactly what we expect from each other.
Working with us means one key thing: no matter what you do, you see every day and every project as a chance to push your field forward. In every store and every office, we build teams where everyone is an MVP. And together we tackle every challenge head on. Because we work to push the gear, the game, and ourselves farther.
We’re looking for people who do more than good work.
We’re looking for the Best in Every Game.
AtUnder Armour, we’re buildingsoftware to power the future of connected fitness. We’re serious about individual growth and athlete achievement, and we’d like you to join us inbuildingreal products that will help millions of people improve their lives through better health & fitness. You will learn, grow, and play in an environment that focuses on results and delivery, all backed by one of the strongest consumer brands in history.
We're looking tobring a Senior Managerto our Infrastructure Engineeringorganization, which powers an ecosystem of over 200M athletes, fitness enthusiasts, and people pursuing a healthy lifestyle. In this role, you willwork across teams tobuild services, tools, and libraries that enable our developers and partners to fulfill Under Armour’s mission to make all athletes better.Our Infrastructure Engineering team builds the systems that our Product Engineers use thousands of times daily, and we care deeply about their stability and developer experience.
In this role, you will:
Design, build, and maintain services that are critical to Under Armour’s Digital Ecosystem
Grow and level up a team of Infrastructure Engineers across our sites in Austin, Baltimore, and San Francisco
Work across teams and up and down the stack to understand how to improve our services, and the developer experience associated with them, and get that work on our roadmaps
Establish a strong vision that brings us iteratively closer to a cloud native world
Projects you could work on:
The work of Infrastructure Engineering is often not front and center with our users, but if it fails, it becomes obvious very quickly. We’re focused on enabling our service engineers to deploy their code safely and repeatedly, reducing our MTTD and MTTR and making our services increasingly resilient to failures in other parts of the infrastructure. We don't have the scale of a huge Internet company, but we have a lot of users and nontrivial request volumes that make it hard to debug issues quickly. We’re passionate about Cloud Native tech and are looking for more ways to participate in that community.
Craft our operating model around Kubernetes. We run Kubernetes in production today, but we’re new to the game and need to establish a solid operating model for managing our clusters.
Deep insights into infrastructure spend. Our teams own their services from code to production, inclusive of on-call rotations. We want to bring their ownership to the next level by showing them how they perform financially.
Bring us into a simpler world. Our team is small but mighty, and we’ve accumulated services over the years that we run ourselves, despite there being SaaS counterparts. Help the team reduce their management burden so they can focus on building an incredible developer experience for our engineers.
You should apply for this role if you:
Believe all developers should own their systems and be accountable to their reliability
Can quickly learn new distributed systems and are not afraid to hack at them with little direction
Can debug complex problems across distributed systems
Help other teammates grow through mentorship and coaching
Enjoy solving complex problems with a focus on delivering the smallest executable set
Have experience with Kubernetes and other cloud native tech
Have a solid understanding of both computer science fundamentals and what it takes to build internet-scale applications. You likely have a degree in Computer Science or similar field, or equivalent real-world experience. Knowledge of commonpatterns and software engineering best practices
Have experience working at scale utilizing microservices architectures
High volume messaging infrastructuresuch as Kafka
Familiarity with AWS and/or other cloud computing platforms
