We are building a powerful intelligent alerting engine to identify key performance and security issues out of the box for applications and infrastructure running on modern cloud services such as AWS, GCP, and Azure. The alerting engine can detect anomalies and outliers, correlate insights that are similar, reduce alert fatigue and put the focus on alerts that are more meaningful and actionable.

Customers are provided with real time notification of insights via email, slack, pagerduty, jira, service now and many other incident management tools.  Our alerting UI helps customers to visualize and troubleshoot all alerts across the customer's environment from a single page, with the ability to instantly view critical details for each one and get the context on the affected entities to quickly debug and resolve the issue.

Come join us on our mission to build an intelligent alerting system with the most powerful AIOps capabilities that can evaluate petabytes of logs, metrics and tracing data in real time and proactively detect, troubleshoot, root cause and resolve performance and availability issues without any human intervention.

What you’ll be working on:

  • Design and implement an alerting system that is extremely high-volume, fault-tolerant, scalable backend systems that can process and manage petabytes of customer data in both real time streaming and batch form.
  • Solve complex challenges in low-latency and zero data-loss scenarios that require demonstrated expertise in distributed systems, fault-tolerance, and multi-tenancy.
  • Build systems to derive actionable insights and intelligence on petabytes of data using machine learning and artificial intelligence.
  • Work collaboratively as a member of a team to deliver identified projects, respond quickly and effectively to business needs, and mentor junior engineers. 
  • Analyze and improve the efficiency and reliability of our backend systems.
  • Write robust code; demonstrate its robustness through automated tests.
  • Mentor and train other team members on design techniques, and coding standards.

Your experience and skills include:

  • B.S. or higher in Computer Sciences or related discipline (M.S. a plus)
  • 8+ years of industry experience with a proven track record of ownership and delivery
  • Experience developing scalable distributed data processing solutions
  • Experience in multi-threaded programming
  • Experience in running large scalable distributed services following a microservice architecture
  • Hands-on object-oriented programming experience (e.g., Java, Scala)
  • Excellent verbal and written communication

Desirable skills:

  • Experience in big data and/or 24x7 commercial service is highly desirable.
  • You should be happy working with Unix (Linux, OS X).
  • Agile software development experience (test-driven development, iterative and incremental development) is a plus.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
