* Role can be remote - from anywhere in Poland

Observability Experience/Entities Team:

Sumo Logic collects raw machine data (logs, metrics, traces) and allows users to search through it, set up alerts, dashboards etc. This Team creates layers on top of that data so that the users can understand what exactly the data concerns (Kubernetes node? AWS EC2 instance?) and how it's interconnected (is this application service running on EC2 instances or AWS Lambdas? Which exact EC2s?). 

Such deeper understanding of data is helpful with troubleshooting outages. For example, a user gets an alert caused by a latency spike in an application and wants to understand how it correlates with high CPU usage on related infrastructure nodes, or increased transaction rate on one of the databases the application depends on.
