Sumo Logic is a SaaS machine data analytics platform for logs, metrics and events. We help DevOps, SecOps and ITOps teams in solving complex observability problems. Our customers, including Twitter, Airbnb, Pokemon, BBC and Toyota, choose our solution because it allows them to easily monitor and optimize their large scale applications, systems and infrastructures. 

Our micro services architecture in AWS ingests hundreds of TB daily across many geographic regions. We also have short release cycles and no legacy versions to maintain. We write in Scala, Java, Golang and Python and use open-source technologies such as Kafka, Kubernetes and Cassandra.

The SRE team is unique in Sumo Logic as it doesn’t own any product service, you will work towards the whole codebase of the Sumo Logic product. You will identify the weakest links in either reliability or performance, research and benchmark possible improvements, and implement solutions in cooperation with the owning teams. You will not focus narrowly, there’s a broad spectrum of topics and projects you might get involved in. You will not operate the software, but create tools for other teams to increase visibility, observability, and scalability of Sumo Logic services.
