Software Development Manager at Hiya
Seattle, WA, US


We believe that phone calls should be secure, engaging, and void of fraud & robocalls. We believe that the phone app is the most outdated app on your smartphone, that the phone network is the largest social network in the world, and that phone calls lack a trust and engagement layer. You should know who is calling you and why! You should get the calls that are relevant to you—at that time—and none of the calls that are not.

Hiya is building and improving a modern software layer to enhance the phone call experience. We already serve over 100 million users worldwide directly through our apps and in partnership with mobile device makers like Samsung and telecom carriers like AT&T.

Are you ready to join and help us scale to serve over 1 billion users?



We are looking for an experienced Software Engineering Manager based in Seattle. You will lead & grow a team and architect, implement, and maintain a broad set of strategic services. This team provides high-availability, latency-sensitive APIs to carriers, mobile apps, and other partners. Our systems are essential to multiple services at the heart of our product portfolio and business strategy.

You will scale our systems to better serve billions of requests per month. In addition, you will collaborate with co-located and remote colleagues at Hiya to define and deliver shared components and services.


What we expect from you:

  • Lead a software engineering team that is based in Seattle
  • Provide mentorship, coaching, career development, and performance management as a people manager to a diverse group of engineers

  • Build and sustain highly distributed systems with stringent SLA requirements
  • Scale our APIs to hundreds of thousands of queries per second

Awesome if you have some experience in:

  • Managing a software engineering team for 3 or more years
  • Providing APIs as a service for third-party developers
  • Programming in a functional language (extra points for Scala)
  • Supporting multiple external partners and a software developer community
  • Developing software for customers using iOS & Android devices
  • Integrating with carrier networks, such as SIP & VoLTE implementations
  • Building systems with network configuration, queues, stream processing, caching, etc.
  • Delivering solutions with Kubernetes/Docker, Kafka, DynamoDB, Redis and data analysis tools


What you should expect from us:

  • Collaborative, motivated, friendly, and skilled colleagues

You will be an important member of our team to help us serve 1 billion consumers. You will have the exposure and experience to accelerate your career growth while making phone calls better for everyone.
