The Observability team is in charge of developing solutions that focus on application developers and engineers that run infrastructure and services supporting these applications. Elasticsearch is an efficient datastore for logs, metrics, and application traces, supporting the three pillars of observability. The Observability team builds and maintains solutions that make getting insights from this data turnkey and efficient, such as our APM (https://www.elastic.co/solutions/apm) , Metrics (https://www.elastic.co/solutions/metrics) , Logs (https://www.elastic.co/solutions/logging) and Uptime (https://www.elastic.co/uptime-monitoring) solutions. When developing these solutions, we think about the problem end-to-end: how do we automatically collect data from common data sources, how do we store it efficiently in Elasticsearch, how do we present this information to the user, what actions do we take on the insights from the data? All of these aspects are important in bringing a turnkey solution to the market.
As a Senior Software Engineer, Ecosystem, you will be part of a team developing high quality, open and free developer tools that are part of the integrations developer daily life. In the Ecosystem team, we put a strong emphasis on the integrations (https://www.elastic.co/integrations/) developer experience and play the role of developer advocates while extending the Elastic package spec. You will be mainly working on the elastic-package (https://github.com/elastic/elastic-package) tool and overall the Elastic Package Registry (https://github.com/elastic/package-registry) , which is a component that eases developers life when it comes to developing particular integrations (https://www.elastic.co/integrations/) and using them to ingest data. It allows you to create, test and publish integrations to multiply the amount of services shipping data to your stack. The elastic-package also acts as a guardian to ensure that each and every integration is following Elastic best practices when it comes to assets, naming, size, and so on. As part of the Ecosystem team, you’ll be deeply involved with the integrations team and easing their life will become your motto. You will also contribute to the overall Data Collection landscape, and engage with the open source community.
The team is diverse and distributed across the world, and collaborates on a daily basis over GitHub, Zoom, and Slack.
