The Elevator Pitch: Why will you enjoy this new opportunity?

You have a creative mind, attention to detail, and a genuine passion for the craft of software engineering. You love solving problems, learning new technologies, and making data-centric software scale massively.

Tanzu Observability by Wavefront offers many opportunities for applying your creativity and skills to a cutting-edge cloud observability platform that leads the industry in scalability and usability. We are a growing team developing a SaaS product that is used 24/7 by development and site-reliability teams at leading enterprises such as Lyft, Doordash, Reddit, Snowflake, Intuit, Box, Workday, and many more!

What is the primary need, technical challenge, and/or problem you will be responsible for?

We need a senior security engineer who can help ensure the proper security and compliance posture for our Tanzu Observability application. You will be designing secure infrastructure, data, and workflows while also working on the identification and resolution of security issues related to our dashboarding, alerting, and other observability use cases.

You will be working closely with software architects, frontend engineers, product managers, and the release and SRE teams as you design and implement the necessary security solutions that give our customers the necessary assurances and allow us to easily obtain FedRamp, SOC2 and other compliance approvals.

What differentiates Tanzu Observability in the current observability landscape is our scalable and extremely powerful data platform and 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?

  • You will work on proper security documentation such as threat modeling and security architecture diagrams.

  • You will investigate security issues and design/implement the necessary solutions. You will have an opportunity to work in the Java backend..

  • You will be able to create and update authorization, authentication, and encryption solutions to improve the application’s security position..

  • You may help us support numerous observability standards such as OpenTelemetry and Prometheus formatted data endpoints by implementing data collectors and forwarders.

  • You should be a self-starter with a high attention to detail.

  • You should have good communication and presentation skills.

  • During non-pandemic times, we spent most of our time in VMware office and we hope to return to the office someday. Right now, we’re all completely remote and remote teamwork is increasingly important to us. You should be able to collaborate remotely via Slack/Zoom etc.

What type of work will you be doing? What assignments, requirements, or skills will you be performing on a regular basis?

As a key member of Tanzu Observability team,

  • You will be part of design and code reviews, collaborating with the greater engineering team to set and maintain a high security standard.

  • You will participate in bi-weekly sprints in our agile process and work on features that fit the agile timeline. You will also participate in demos!

  • You will participate in the learning culture at Tanzu Observability and attend and maybe even give tech talks. You will also likely get to participate in hack-a-thons to showcase your creativity in applied observability.

The technical experience in your background which may help your success in this new role include:

  • Understanding of OWASP top 10. Ability to identify, debug and resolve security issues.

  • Experience in developing threat models and similar documentation in order to meet the requirements for compliance auditing.

  • Experience as a Java backend developer.

  • Understanding of SaaS architecture and the security concerns related to a SaaS delivery model.

  • Previous experience with observability or monitoring solutions such as Grafana, Prometheus, TICK stack, StatsD, DataDog, SignalFX, is a plus.

We know from experience that not ticking every box on the skills sections stops many from applying. Please apply regardless of your self-assessment -- we want to hear from you! We have seen engineers succeed with a diverse range of skills and experiences.

What is the structure and culture of the team like?

We used to mostly work out of the Palo Alto office but have now fully adapted to remote work, with team leads and members in the SF Bay and Denver. Remote opportunities are also available for this position.

Culturally, the team is focused on innovation, customer value, execution, growth, and kindness. We retain the original startup DNA in our responsiveness and respect towards everyone’s contributions and focus on exciting big ideas, innovation, and features and fixes that deliver customer value. However, we have the stable backing VMware, which is itself a values-cherishing company and a great place to work
