Manager, Software Engineering

Engineering Barcelona, Spain


Your Opportunity

Telemetry Data Platform's Logging team is looking for an Engineering Manager with a passion for people management, growing strong teams, and shipping software that delights customers.

Our team’s goal is to send, process and aggregate log entries from distributed services for displaying them in our dashboards so our customers can identify, understand and tackle issues, analyze performance and get the most of their software and infrastructure. Logging is one of the fastest growing products at New Relic developed by a distributed team across Barcelona and the US.

Our Engineering Managers are a select group of leader-coaches who shape the solutions we bring to the market and foster an inclusive environment that brings out the best in people. You’ll manage a team of engineers that operate and scale distributed services that process millions of messages per second.

What You’ll Do

  • Lead a strong software engineering team on the core of New Relic's data platform in Barcelona.
  • Coordinate and align with our logging squad in the US to tackle dependencies and identify priorities.
  • Help the team grow and drive their roadmap, striking a balance between feature-forward work, maintaining a reliable platform and paying off technical debt.
  • Sync with the Product Manager to prioritize and define a roadmap to drive our product to success.
  • Develop and iterate on processes and practices that keep your team executing efficiently.

Your Qualifications


  • Experience in a technical leadership role, leading software development focused teams that apply software engineering practices to deliver high-quality maintainable code.
  • You value high iteration speed, low cycle times, a focus on the actual problems we're solving for our customers, good communication, collaboration, and improving the people around us.
  • You are willing to adapt your management style. We’re working in a highly changing environment, and have a particular process you follow isn’t going to work.
  • You enjoy growing engineers, help them move up on their career path and giving visibility on their achievements and progress.
  • You are comfortable dealing with ambiguity, very customer-centric, and able to think big.
  • You really enjoy change. We’re a growing company, and that means things change a lot here. You receive a lot of support, but you will see the job evolve every six months, so you should thrive in this kind of environment.


  • Experience with high throughput distributed systems.
  • Experience operating in a public cloud.

We're looking for bold and passionate people to be a part of our mission to create more perfect software. We'd love to have you apply, even if you don't feel you meet every single requirement. What's most important to us is finding authentic and accountable people who feel connected to our mission and values, not just candidates who check off all the boxes.
