At LightStep, our mission is to deliver confidence at scale for those who develop, operate, and rely upon today’s powerful software applications. We created LightStep because we understand the massive architectural transformation underway in the software industry, and we saw an opportunity to accelerate it, all while improving the quality of the developer and end-user experience. While we learned a great deal from our experiences building Dapper (Google’s distributed tracing solution) and Monarch (Google’s high-availability metrics solution), LightStep is in many ways a reaction to and a generational improvement beyond those approaches. Our story as individuals and as a company revolves around continuous learning, careful listening, and the belief that these fundamentally new software architectures require fundamentally new solutions.
Lightstep is looking for our first Brand and Communications Designer to join our San Francisco office and help us develop our brand identity and engage our savvy, technical audience in a way that motivates and inspires them. As an early member of LightStep's Design team, you will help shape our culture of design and play an instrumental role in crafting the future of our brand.
