Apply Now

Description

We are looking for a talented, self-starting Full Stack Developer to join our Sematext Cloud development team. On the frontend we use TypeScript, React, Redux, ChartJS, etc. On the backend we use Kubernetes, Elasticsearch, Kafka, ClickHouse, custom apps written in Go, Kotlin, Node.js, and Java (legacy at this point - we've switched to use Kotlin for the JVM). For our monitoring agents we use eBPF, Go, and Java, and we use a log shipper written in Rust. All our infrastructure is in AWS. We use Terraform and Ansible for automation and Jenkins for CI. All of our applications run in Docker containers orchestrated using Kubernetes. We try to automate everything we can. We use Github workflow and Kanban boards in JIRA. Most developers use Docker running on Linux or OSX. See further below about how we work.

This position will let you work with all our products, large volumes of streaming data, contribute to our open-source projects, and interact with users and customers using our products. We don’t expect you to know everything coming in – we’ll pair you with peers who will help you improve your skills and close any experience gaps.
