We are looking for someone who can closely work with the rest of the frontend and backend engineers and collaborate with the team to deliver key software features to our customers. What differentiates us in the current observability landscape is our intuitive, scalable and extremely powerful UI and you will play a key role in taking our platform to the next level.

Success in the role: What are the performance goals over the first 6-12 months you will work toward completing?

  • Develop high-performance interactive charting with Javascript and related technologies (canvas, svg, webgl).

  • Experience with frontend build processes such as webpack, gulp, and sass.

  • Self-starter with a high attention to detail.

  • Good communication and presentation skills.

  • Provide significant technical leadership and direction for our front-end engineers.
