There is only one Data Cloud. Snowflake’s founders started from scratch and designed a data platform built for the cloud that is effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. But it didn’t stop there. They engineered Snowflake to power the Data Cloud, where thousands of organizations unlock the value of their data with near-unlimited scale, concurrency, and performance. This is our vision: a world with endless insights to tackle the challenges and opportunities of today and reveal the possibilities of tomorrow.

We’re searching for talented Cloud Infrastructure Engineering Managers to join us for our efforts building out the Snowflake platform on a broad set of Cloud providers.  Our team at Snowflake has responsibility for the infrastructure layer in development and production.  As our team is growing rapidly to keep up with this broad responsibility alongside Snowflake’s immense growth.  We need additional managerial talent to help lead the charge.

We feel that managers who share a belief in the importance of these non-technical traits alongside the pan-Valley desire to build scalable, easy to maintain systems, will excel in our environment.
