  • Designing monitoring for AWS services and applications running in AWS.

  • Dreaming up better ways to communicate operational insights across the business.
  • Applying user-centered design and product management principles to deliver interesting and useful internal products.
  • Act as Enterprise Monitoring on-call engineer on a rotating basis.

What you’ll need:

  • Demonstrated technical leadership ability.

  • A consulting mindset and ability to teach teams how to use our services.

  • Strong data analysis skills; particularly performance engineering and application performance monitoring; background in statistics a plus

  • Knowledge of configuration management practices and experience with one or more tool(s) (Puppet, SSM, Chef)
