At LightStep, we’re building a transformative new product for tracking and understanding application behavior and performance. We help our users solve production-system problems with detailed, high-fidelity, real-time insights derived from massive volumes of incoming distributed systems data.

You’ll play a pivotal role in shaping new product offerings and scaling a sophisticated system, while working closely with our other engineers. We're looking for someone excited to join a growing team that writes efficient, maintainable code for a standout product used every day by engineers at Lyft, Twilio, and more.
