kubernetes grafana go backend senior cloud Mar 19

This is a remote opportunity and we would be interested in applications from a European or North Americas timezone (other time zones will be considered on a case by base basis)

We are looking for an experienced backend or system developer to join the Grafana Labs R&D team. Were hiring for a range of teams and projects which roll up into two high level groups:

Grafana

Grafanas backend runs on a high variety of hardware ranging from old Raspberry Pis to large enterprise clustered setups. Our backed plugins integrate with all kinds of databases. This requires thoughtful decisions regarding architecture, resilience and performance. We are also responsible for our hosted Grafana offering which operates thousands of Grafana instances on Kubernetes.

Grafana Cloud

Our Grafana Cloud pipeline moves millions of data points, log lines and traces per second from our customer's environments into a highly available, low-latency stack that processes and stores the data, and serves it to dashboards and alerting tools. We aim to grow this to hundreds of millions per second, and it's critical that as we grow, we improve our performance, increase our reliability and do it all more efficiently.

If you are shortlisted for an interview by the team well discuss the projects and your areas of interest in more detail during the early stages of our interview process.

Backend engineering roles at Grafana require engineers with a passion for performance, reliability, and who enjoy taking projects from conception to production.

We have some of the best engineers from the monitoring space working on these problems and they want to work with you.

Since we deploy production services, we have on-call rotations to ensure the health of the system. We dogfood our own services so being on call is an important way to understand our system and how to use the products we create.

Our culture is one of remote-first, and our engineering organization is largely remote. We provide guidance and meet regularly using video calls, and we need people who can work independently and can communicate well. Even if you are located near one of our small offices, working from home is both common and encouraged. Our teams also plan in-person team building meetups and also gather to attend industry conferences.

We care deeply about open source and the projects generally are open source, check them out: https://github.com/grafana.

We primarily use Go.

Grafana Labs is the company behind Grafana, an open source dashboarding tool for visualizing and analyzing metrics. It's commonly used for infrastructure and application monitoring, but we've also seen installations to monitor things like beehives, power-plants, or even ambulances. Grafana's mission is to democratize metrics: users can create dashboards that help them get insights into how their applications behave, enabling them to iterate, take action and improve faster. Commercially, Grafana Labs sells enterprise support plans and has a hosted metrics/logs offering.

We are a family-friendly company (lots of us have kids) and consider ourselves a remote/distributed company. Even if you are located near one of our offices in New York, Stockholm or Berlin, working from home is both common and encouraged.
