About Grafana Cloud:
 
Grafana Cloud is our composable observability platform that integrates metrics, logs, and traces with Grafana. It allows our customers to leverage the best open source observability software – including Prometheus, Cortex, Loki, and Tempo – without the overhead of installing, maintaining and scaling their own observability stack.
 
Our Grafana Cloud pipeline moves millions of data points, loglines, and traces per second from our customers’ 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.
 
Our tech stack is mostly made up of services written in Go, running on multiple Kubernetes clusters that leverage Google’s Cloud Platform.
 
Our culture is remote-first and our engineering organization is largely remote. We provide guidance and meet regularly using video calls, so an independent attitude and strong communication skills are a must.
 
As part of the OpenTelemetry squad you will:
  • Contribute code to OpenTelemetry projects
  • Participate in OpenTelemetry SIGs
  • Supporting internal teams and customers with the adoption of OpenTelemetry
  • Teach the community as a conference speaker and blog author

Requirements:

  • You have senior level experience as a backend software developer. At Grafana you will likely be programming in Go, but it is fine if you are coming from a different technology stack and are willing to learn Go.
  • A significant part of your role will be communication and collaboration, with OpenTelemetry SIGs, with Grafana teams, with customers, and with the open source community.  You must be eager to take the initiative and bring people together.

Nice to haves:

  • You have been a speaker at a conference or meetup or as an author of blog posts

  • Experience in dealing with Prometheus, Tempo, or Loki or similar.

Benefits:

  • Generous vacation policy of 30 days per annum with national holidays in your country of residence on top
  • Grafana operates in 32+ countries. We try to operate as one team and focus on global benefits which our whole team can enjoy. Inevitably there are some regional variations and we discuss the benefits offered in your country of residence through our interview process.
  • We offer a competitive healthcare plan (Medical, Dental & Vision) for our US based employees via our co-employer JustWorks.
  • We offer a 4% employer contribution match on our 401K/pension plans or a one time 4% salary increase after 6 months tenure depending on your location
