Cvent is an exciting, fast-growing tech company that provides industry-leading software to more than 300,000 event professionals and hoteliers around the world. The economic significance of our industry is undeniable: Meetings and events boost the global GDP by more than $1.5 trillion and impact nearly 26 million jobs; and for more than 20 years, Cvent has led the transformation of our industry with our market-leading technology.

Cvent’s rapidly growing site reliability organization is seeking to hire a Senior Manager/Manager to build, lead, and grow the globally distributed team. You will provide strong technical leadership and support for developing the primary interface between software engineers and our cloud operations teams, build a large, highly-scalable distributed platform to keep things running smoothly, train and mentor staff, and develop robust internal and external partnerships necessary for success. This individual will also define processes and create ways to automate repetitive tasks and seek out ways to drive efficiency and improvements.

What You Will Be Doing

  • Participate early in the SDLC to ensure reliability is built in from the beginning, and creating plans for successful implementations/launches
  • Foster a learning and ownership culture within the team and the larger Cvent organization
  • Lead by example – roll up your sleeves by debugging and coding; participate in on-call rotation & occasional travel
  • Support the team with technical decisions - this is not a tech lead position.

What You Need for this Position

  • 3+ years of demonstrable experience leading site reliability and performance in large-scale, high-traffic environments
  • 7-10+ years of technology experience overall
  • Strong leadership, communication and interpersonal skills geared to getting things done
