GitLab is building observability into the DevOps Platform based on the recent acquisition of Opstrace. It will be fully integrated and on-by-default for all GitLab customers, while maintaining the Opstrace Open Source Distribution as a standalone project. As a Senior Frontend Engineer on the Observability team, you’ll collaborate on building cloud-native tooling, scalable data storage technologies, and custom orchestration logic. You’ll work closely with customers and operate the code you write. You will help bridge the gap between expensive SaaS vendors and difficult DIY projects. There’s a lot to do and learn.

Some things you may work on:

  • Developing open source UI components and visualization for tracing, logging, metrics
  • Leveraging and/or integrating existing open source tools such as Grafana
  • Creating a consistent user experience across monitoring features
  • Working with other GitLab teams to help them integrate monitoring features into their product areas

Essential skills:

  • Strong experience with Typescript and React or another modern JavaScript web framework (Angular, Ember, etc.)
  • Experience working with Grafana, Data Visualisation, Single Page Application Development.
  • Experience with writing automated tests (e.g. Jest, Karma, Jasmine, Mocha, AVA, tape)
  • Experience using Git in a professional/workplace environment
  • A solid understanding of semantic HTML, CSS, and core JavaScript concepts.

Nice to have:

  • GCP and/or AWS experience
  • Experience operating a managed Kubernetes cluster (ex. GKE or EKS)
  • Experience with Cortex, Thanos, Jaeger, or other similar open source observability systems
  • Distributed Systems experience
  • Golang and/or Ruby/Ruby on Rails skills
