Good storytelling starts with great listening. At Audible, that means each role and every project has our audience in mind. Because the same people who design, develop, and deploy our products also happen to use them. To us, that speaks volumes.

Our technology teams play a key role in connecting listeners with millions of stories, by imagining, designing, developing and testing the software components and applications that make up the Audible platform. As a Software Development Senior Director, you’ll anticipate and seek out obstacles before they occur, implementing solutions that allow our engineers to fulfil the strategic and tactical business goals set by you. You’ll coach our teams to deliver visionary products, programs or projects, with the most efficient use of Audible’s resources. You will be responsible for managing and leading a high performing organization, including fostering Audible’s unique culture. This is your chance to drive the future of our technology, as you’ll mentor future leaders and inspire innovation.

If you’re passionate about creating a culture of innovation, this role is for you. Building and maintaining scalable systems is your specialty, and you aren’t afraid of making changes to make progress. Whether it’s driving architecture, organizational changes, or deconstructing a complex process to find a straightforward solution – you’re a dedicated problem solver. And behind every action you take, is a desire to create positive impacts for customers, business or technology teams.

As a Senior Director, Software Development, you will...
- Independently lead one or multiple teams of managers, and Support Engineers (SEs), and Software Development Engineers (SDEs)
- Work with your team to take ownership of critical technologies or major products
- Collaborate and communicate to define the functional and technical architecture of engineering teams, making sure that they align with Audible’s business strategy and priorities
- Apply your analytical skills to solve complex issues by considering their interrelationships and organizational impacts
- Partner with business leaders, technical managers and Senior/Principal Engineers to determine the long-term potentials of architectures and product offerings
