What you'll do at

Jet's engineering team built the platform that runs in 2014 from the ground up -- it’s distributed and event driven. In our highly distributed, modern architecture, we face increasing visibility challenges. The popular monitoring tools we use are not able to capture the full details of the unpredictable and complex interactions between services. Our engineers need mature monitoring and introspection tools for proper diagnosis, root cause analysis, anomaly detections and to answer questions related to their systems.

This position will be part of Jet’s platform group and help us build the platform for measuring and monitoring infrastructure/every mission-critical application. We heavily use open source technologies and standards, and are already exploring a few tracing/monitoring solutions that may fit our needs. There is a lot to do and a lot of leeway to define the roadmap. We are open to researching new tracing architectures and techniques.

Skills & Requirements


  • BS or MS in Computer Science or related technical discipline (or equivalent experience)
  • Experience with cloud delivery platforms, Azure/AWS/GCE
  • Building high-leverage tools for engineers where engineers are our customers
  • Tracing (OpenTracing, Zipkin, Jaeger)
  • Automated correlation and anomaly detection
  • Site reliability engineering
  • Hands on experience with one or more programming languages
  • Working knowledge of running and tuning applications in production
  • Hands on experience with Docker / Kubernetes / Mesos / Nomad
  • Attention to detail in their code and output
