What you achieve

You help us keep the in-house big data monitoring and anomaly detection platform on the cutting edge. We are a team of polyglot software engineers, SREs/DevOps, and data scientists. By analyzing data from various sources, we deliver real-time insights into service quality.
You keep finding ways to automate daily operations and increase the reliability of our systems. By combining strong engineering skills with creativity, you evolve the scalability, resilience, performance, availability, and self-services of our platform. Thanks to you, we improve the resilience of data processing pipelines and keep the uptime of our Druid.io cluster high. Your code enhances our platform with state-of-the-art security and multitenancy capabilities. Improving the CI/CD of our OSS tools and our own software products is part of your routine. As a polyglot engineer, you leverage technologies and keep the operations footprint low. Together, we optimize the performance and reliability of our microservices.
