CoreWeave is a specialized cloud provider focused on GPU accelerated use cases including VFX, AI/ML, Batch Processing and Real Time Experiences. We support countless AI/ML services in the text to image, NLP and broader AI/ML space, reducing client’s infrastructure management requirements with our Kubernetes based serverless GPU cloud offerings.

Job Description

About the role:

As a first-class accelerated compute cloud provider, CoreWeave needs first-class cloud storage solutions. The Storage Engineering department is responsible for ensuring that CoreWeave’s customers and engineering teams have access to the right storage solutions for their needs. Hosted within CoreWeave’s on-prem data center infrastructure, this department’s products span multiple storage protocols (S3, file, block) and storage classes. With some of the biggest names in AI/ML as our customers, CoreWeave’s pace of innovation and scale represent an engaging set of problems for our engineering teams.

We are seeking a Senior Manager for the Storage Engineering department to help drive the organizational and engineering strategy for CoreWeave’s cloud storage products and teams. This individual will serve a distributed department of 12-24 individual contributors and engineering managers by minimizing sources of engineer friction, developing and executing a long-term strategy, and fostering a culture of transparency, congruency, and communication. Critically, this individual will need to be adaptable to the pace and maturity of their teams while adding incremental value and maturity through time.

Supported by the Director of Infrastructure Engineering, the selected candidate will have the opportunity to:

  • Identify and minimize sources of friction that impede your team’s ability to be the best engineering team they can be.
  • Develop and execute a long-term organizational strategy to anticipate both our needs of scale and critical business opportunities.
  • Implement an operational model that drives increasing reliability and performance while scaling at a breakneck pace.
  • Partner with product and engineering leadership to develop product strategy, create roadmaps, and make critical resourcing decisions.
  • Foster a culture of transparency, empathy, blamelessness, accountability, iteration, and data-based decision making.
  • Set the tone for how your teams measure success both in how they support each other and how they enable the rest of CoreWeave.
  • Coordinate with multiple teams to resolve dependencies and achieve project goals.
  • Work with your team to develop and implement processes enabling a reliable, mature practice of platform delivery and development.

Wondering if you’re a good fit? We believe in investing in our people, and value candidates who can bring their own diversified experiences to our teams – even if you aren't a 100% skill or experience match. Here are some qualities we’ve found compatible with our team. If a portion of this resonates with you, we’d love to talk.

  • You have ten or more years of experience in a software or infrastructure engineering industry with six or more years as a dedicated engineering people leader.
  • You have prior experience in the field of cloud storage products and distributed systems engineering and have fluency with the top-three protocols of cloud storage S3 (object), block, and networked filesystem.
  • You love helping people on their journeys to become their best selves and have practice with fostering the development of people leaders.
  • You have experience with marrying product strategy to organizational strategy and have guided a team through a major growth phase such as setting up new teams from scratch.
  • You have experience supporting teams with blended operational and development responsibilities and can drive your domain’s reliability engineering practice.
  • You believe in a bottoms-up style of leadership that focuses on enablement, communication, organization, and inspiration over task management.
  • You have a flexible approach to your leadership practice and can be impactful at differentiated levels of organizational maturity.

Our compensation reflects the cost of labor across several US geographic markets. The base pay for this position ranges from $200,000-$250,000 annually. Pay is based on a number of factors including market location and may vary depending on job-related knowledge, skills, and experience.

Hybrid Workplace

Successful candidates will be expected to attend onboarding training at our NJ Headquarters within their first several weeks of employment, with subsequent quarterly travel requirements of 1 week duration.

If you reside within a 30-mile radius of our New Jersey, New York, or Philadelphia offices, we're excited for you to join us at the office at least three times a week, recognizing the significance we place on fostering connections, collaboration, and creativity within our office culture. Our commitment to operating as a hybrid workplace underscores our dedication to enabling our employees to tailor their work-life balance to their individual preferences.
