About the role

SigNoz is a global open source project with users in 30+ countries. We are building an open-source application monitoring which helps developers monitor their applications and troubleshoot problems, quickly.

In less than a year of our launch, we have reached 12000+ Github stars, 2500+ members in the slack community and 100+ contributors.

Company Vision

Software and digital systems are becoming larger parts of our daily lives. Most companies are becoming software companies with increasing part of value they create coming from software.

In such a world, having software systems functioning seamlessly is taken for granted. Think about last time twitter or slack went down. How irritated you felt.

We aim to solve this problem by providing software engineers better tooling to keep systems running smoothly. We believe there are lots to be done in this space and we need your help in building this future.

If you are developer who loves talking to people, writing about what you are building and help other devs get started, this role may just be the right fit for you :)

Why us?

  • Opportunity to work in a global dev infra product
  • Work on an open source product. Engage with the community. Evangelise the product.
  • Founding team from IITs who are/have been devs themselves
  • Backed by YC and some of the prominent VCs in the US.

Who would be a good fit

  • 1+ yrs experience as a software engineer.
  • Can get your hand dirty in codes in different languages and deployment methods (think k8s, docker). Not necessary to have deep knowledge, but enough to set up some sample apps
  • Active in dev communities like Github or different dev focused slack communities. Open source contributions are a big plus.
  • Curious and having a get stuff done attitude
  • Interest in startups. If you are an ex-entrepreneur, we would love to chat with you

What you will be working on

  • Create dev focused blogs or videos, speak at dev-facing conferences
  • Help users out in setting up SigNoz and understand their usecases
  • Engage in online dev communities and present the product in online/in-person meetups

Next steps

Seems like something right up your alley?

Just apply on this site or email your CV and an optional intro note to me at [pranay at signoz dot io]. Feel free to include links to your GitHub, LinkedIn, Twitter, or blog posts.

Our process involves a short initial exploratory chat, followed by three interviews/discussions. The aim is for both sides to learn more about each other. The timeline is ~10 days unless you need more time.
