Sumo Logic:

·       What we do:
We are a cloud-native SaaS machine data analytics platform, solving complex monitoring problems for DevOps, SecOps and ITOps teams. Customers love our product because it allows them to easily monitor and optimize their mission critical, large scale applications.
· Massive Scale:
Our microservices architecture in AWS ingests hundreds of terabytes daily across many geographic regions. Millions of queries a day analyze hundreds of petabytes of data.

Senior Backend Software Developer, Infrastructure 

Want to empower digital business through real-time analytics delivered as a service?  Passionate about putting the power of machine data analytics in the hands of everyone by unifying all data types, enabling universal access and leveraging cloud economics – all this from a single, unified platform delivered and consumed as a service?  Come talk with us!

The proliferation of machine log data has the potential to give organizations unprecedented real-time visibility into their infrastructure and operations. With this opportunity comes tremendous technical challenges around ingesting, managing, and understanding high-volume streams of heterogeneous data.

What we need from you:

  • B.S. in Computer Sciences (M.S. or PhD is a plus) or a related discipline
  • 5+ years of industry experience with a proven track record of ownership and delivery
  • Hands-on object-oriented programming experience (e.g., Java, Scala)
  • Experience with AWS or other cloud services
  • Experience with Linux

Nice to have:

  • Experience with containers and orchestration (e.g., Docker, Kubernetes, Borg)
  • Experience with Microservices development
  • Experience in running large scalable distributed services
  • Experience with NoSQL (e.g., Cassandra, MongoDB)

To apply, please submit your resume, no cover letter necessary. We encourage you to submit any work you have done in the open. (Open source contributions, GitHub repos, etc.)
