About the Role:

We, at Tubi, call our Engineering Managers “Tech Leads.” We are looking for a Tech Lead to join our team, building backend services in the ad tech space to help acquire users and fuel Tubi’s growth, thus having a direct impact on the business. You will work with the leader of the group (VP, Growth Engineering) to transform high-level roadmap items into tasks for the team and oversee executing them, deploying your experience and expertise in figuring out interdependencies, priorities, and scheduling. You will help the team eliminate ambiguity (when it arrives) by liaising with other teams to understand requirements and context. You will help the team arrive at solid technical decisions and implementations by getting involved in design and code reviews, frameworks and tools evaluations, technical discussions in the team, and at times dive into the code.    

Your most important context will be the Team, so you'll also think about ways to help us grow and be greater than the sum of the parts. We embrace the 80/20 Rule, so you'll spend some of your time thinking about what the elegant and beautiful solution could be, and then break it down such that the team can deliver maximum impact over the long term.

  • You and your team will:

    • Define and implement the architecture for the components of a fully-automated system to deploy advertising campaigns on various channels (e.g. Facebook, Roku, Amazon etc.)
    • Use our data warehouse to analyze and define various metrics needed to improve performance
  • Help the engineers on your team advance in their careers and grow through 1:1s and mentoring
  • Determine as necessary the need for hiring talent and training


  • 5+ years of experience in a leadership role, directly managing software engineers
