We are building a powerful intelligent alerting engine to identify key performance and security issues out of the box for applications and infrastructure running on modern cloud services such as AWS, GCP, and Azure. The alerting engine can detect anomalies and outliers, correlate insights that are similar, reduce alert fatigue and put the focus on alerts that are more meaningful and actionable.

Customers are provided with real time notification of insights via email, slack, pagerduty, jira, service now and many other incident management tools.  Our alerting UI helps customers to visualize and troubleshoot all alerts across the customer's environment from a single page, with the ability to instantly view critical details for each one and get the context on the affected entities to quickly debug and resolve the issue.

Come join us on our mission to build an intelligent alerting system with the most powerful AIOps capabilities that can evaluate petabytes of logs, metrics and tracing data in real time and proactively detect, troubleshoot, root cause and resolve performance and availability issues without any human intervention.

  • Design and implement an alerting system that is extremely high-volume, fault-tolerant, scalable backend systems that can process and manage petabytes of customer data in both real time streaming and batch form.
  • Solve complex challenges in low-latency and zero data-loss scenarios that require demonstrated expertise in distributed systems, fault-tolerance, and multi-tenancy.
  • Build systems to derive actionable insights and intelligence on petabytes of data using machine learning and artificial intelligence.
  • Work collaboratively as a member of a team to deliver identified projects, respond quickly and effectively to business needs, and mentor junior engineers. 
  • Analyze and improve the efficiency and reliability of our backend systems.
