Grafana k6 is our modern open-source tool for performance testing. With more than 15,900 GitHub stars and a vibrant community, k6 is used by developers, operations, and QA teams for diverse types of testing.

To enable expanding k6 capabilities beyond the core features, we launched k6 extensions. k6 extensions allow engineers to add functionality to k6 that is not natively supported.

k6 extensions are written in Go and can reuse existing Go libraries, simplifying the creation of new extensions to test modern infrastructure and other systems.  Over the last year, the community and we have created a wide range of extensions. For example, testing Kafka, AMQP, Kubernetes, Databases, etc.

The k6 team is now looking for a Software Integration Engineer to help us develop and maintain multiple k6 extensions and enhance the Developer Experience (DX) testing these technologies.

In this role, you will help maintain existing extensions, build new extensions yourself, develop our best practices, and help the k6 community.   If you love working with new technologies, building tools for developers, and engaging with software communities - this job is for you.

Required skills:

  • Prior golang experience.
  • Experience in bash scripting and other programming languages.
  • Experience with containers, orchestrators and CI build pipelines.
  • Familiarity with setting up cloud-native technologies and databases.  
  • Have contributed to open-source projects. 
  • Good technical communication skills.
  • A self-starter attitude and ability to get things done efficiently, with passion and enthusiasm.
  • A team-player who works well with others as well as individually.
