Have you ever wondered what happens inside the cloud?

Based in New York, DigitalOcean is a dynamic, high-growth technology company that serves a robust & passionate community of developers, teams, & businesses around the world. We believe that todays entrepreneurs are changing the world through software. Our mission is to empower these entrepreneurs by bringing modern app development within reach for any developer, anywhere in the world.

We want people who are passionate about building features that you & your peers will love.

We are looking for an engineer to help teams dive into how our sea of services operates in production. Reporting to the Engineering Manager of Observability Platforms, the Observability Engineers -- a small, cohesive team focused on creating visibility into our infrastructure -- provide actionable intelligence about the operating conditions & use of our cloud to the rest of the organization. They exist to build a feedback loop in order to empirically measure the results of our actions, & then lower the latency of that feedback loop while extending the time horizon we can reason about further into the future.

  • Working with interesting technologies such as Prometheus, Grafana, Go, Docker, Kafka & more
  • Have opportunities to contribute back to the open source software that we rely on

What We'll Expect From You:

  • A desire to learn about & participate in building high scale observability systems.
  • A desire to learn & become an expert with Observability & Monitoring tools such as Prometheus, Alertmanager, Grafana, & more, while writing custom tooling & integrations between these systems & the rest of DigitalOcean.
  • Comfortableness in at least one of the following languages: Go, C/C++, Java, Python, Ruby, and/or Perl
  • An ability to work well as part of a distributed team.
