Chronosphere, a platform for the future
Chronosphere is an early stage startup building an innovative observability platform for cloud native applications. Chronosphere enables customers to develop and operate reliable cloud native applications: with the ability to quickly identify problems and their causes; simply, affordably and at scale.
The Chronosphere platform is built on the open source M3 metrics platform and Jaeger distributed tracing platform- both developed at Uber Technologies, and proven in production at petabyte scale. The Chronosphere observability platform integrates both technologies into a single seamless solution, allowing users to jump straight from issue detection to root cause in a single click. The platform is delivered as a SaaS service that is easy to adopt and scale with customer needs.
About the role
We are seeking a professional technical writer to upgrade and expand documentation for the M3 open source project (see here https://m3db.github.io/m3 ). Chronosphere staff will predominantly help guide the M3 documentation, and be subject matter experts for this documentation project. The writer will also be expected to interact with documentation users and other community members for feedback on documentation plans and content.
We are open to both full-time and contact applicants for this role.
- Help to make the first M3 version 1.0 "production release" later in 2020
- Assist with scoping what the documentation goals are for that release, and what is "below the line" to be done after the M3 1.0 release.
- Collaborate with engineering and other staff
- Develop an M3 glossary as you work with the documentation, capturing the definition and tightening the use of key words and phrases. This glossary is expected to be shared with the M3 community.
- Familiarity with Linux, this is a requirement
- Experience with the open source community
- Familiarity with Docker and Kubernetes would be an advantage
- Exposure to AWS
