Engineering Manager, Unified Search (Remote)


This is a Full-time position in SAN MARCOS, TX posted May 14, 2021.

At CrowdStrike we’re on a mission – to stop breaches. Our groundbreaking technology, services delivery, and intelligence gathering together with our innovations in machine learning and behavioral-based detection, allow our customers to not only defend themselves, but do so in a future-proof manner. We’ve earned numerous honors and top rankings for our technology, organization and people – clearly confirming our industry leadership and our special culture driving it. We also offer flexible work arrangements to help our people manage their personal and professional lives in a way that works for them. So if you’re ready to work on unrivaled technology where your desire to be part of a collaborative team is met with a laser-focused mission to stop breaches and protect people globally, let’s talk.

About the Role:

CrowdStrike is a computer security company, but we do not expect candidates for this role to have prior security industry experience.  We will mentor and train in security topics as needed. We do expect a strong interest in CrowdStrike’s mission and a willingness to grow into a position consulting on system design decisions and coordinating with other teams across the company. CrowdStrike is a remote-first organization, and this position requires the ability to hold regular meetings with team members and other colleagues working in US and Australia time zones. Because of this requirement, remote applicants in the US and Canada are welcome, while UK/EU are possible, but will require US-centric work hours.

If you prefer the office life, CrowdStrike has engineering offices in Irvine (CA), Kirkland (WA), Minneapolis (MN), Sunnyvale (CA), London (UK) and Crystal City (VA). Occasional travel (~2-3 week-long trips a year) is required (outside of pandemic conditions).

About the Team

  • Our primary focus is unifying query languages across the company and building compilers and runtime systems to implement those query languages.

  • Our team builds systems that span the range from kernel-level code to distributed systems running in the cloud. We focus on everything from micro-optimizing assembly code, to high-level architecture design.

  • We like to use strongly-typed languages like Haskell, and formal modelling tools like Agda and TLA+

  • We are a self-motivated, medium-sized team of senior engineers (which means: anarchist guerilla developer commune)


  • You will be responsible for developing the Unified Search team’s plan for multiple time scales. As part of this process, you will prioritize both team-internal and organization-wide projects, make work allocation decisions for the USearch team, and collaborate with the planning effort of the larger organization.

  • You will be coordinating and advocating for what we do with the other stakeholders in the company

  • You will participate in our team’s strong culture of self-organizing and egalitarian decision-making, both in group discussions and regular one-on-one meetings with team members.

  • You will help us organize and manage our work, and help us grow and develop professionally.

  • You will collaborate with the members of the team to develop plans for professional growth within a yearly review cycle.

  • You will write yearly performance reviews and work on performance assessment for each member of the team.

Key qualifications:

  • At least 1 year of experience managing teams

  • A track record of successfully fostering reports’ long-term career growth

  • A history of success hiring, supporting, and advocating for under-represented groups

  • Comfortable leading open-ended research-focused efforts, and developing them into a series of concrete deliverables.

  • Communication skills

    • Strong cross-group collaboration and interpersonal communication skills working with a variety of roles including engineering, product management, support and sales engineering

    • Ability to communicate and articulate crisply at all levels from executive staff to engineers

  • You’ve shipped code.

  • You have some experience with distributed or concurrent systems.

  • You can support the team’s technical choices and communicate them where necessary to the larger organization.  Unified Search strongly believes in picking tools appropriate for a domain.  In the past, we have successfully employed tools like Haskell for production compiler tooling and Agda and TLA+ for modeling systems.

Nice to Have:

Management or first-hand experience  with any of the following, more is better:

  • developing/maintaining query languages / query planning systems

  • strongly-typed functional programming (Haskell/ML)

  • formal modeling (Agda/TLA+)

  • compiler development

  • cloud development

  • low level optimization

  • experience with C/C++ or Go

  • experience with remote work, particularly managing distributed teams




Benefits of Working at CrowdStrike:

  • Market leader in compensation and equity awards
  • Competitive vacation policy
  • Comprehensive health benefits + 401k plan 
  • Paid parental leave, including adoption
  • Flexible work environment
  • Wellness programs
  • Stocked fridges, coffee, soda, and lots of treats

We are committed to building an inclusive culture of belonging that not only embraces the diversity of our people but also reflects the diversity of the communities in which we work and the customers we serve. We know that the happiest and highest performing teams include people with diverse perspectives and ways of solving problems so we strive to attract and retain talent from all backgrounds and create workplaces where everyone feels empowered to bring their full, authentic selves to work.
