To make all this happen, we are dedicated in creating an exceptional flexible employee experience for all team members and offer a culture where you can be yourself.

You will support, teach, and mentor our engineering teams in observability best practises, helping them tackle their trickiest problems, whilst supporting and maintaining the tools within our platform. 
We are passionate about making a difference to our developers, continually improving our clients experiences using our products, by providing a simple and comprehensive platform for observability needs. 
If you are excited by the idea of being part of a team dedicated to championing improvement and want to join us on our journey, we would love to hear from you.
