Senior Backend Engineer, LogStream

Location: Type: Full-time

Sr. Back End Engineer, LogStream

Cribl’s LogStream unlocks the value of all machine data in ways that were previously not possible by providing users a new level of observability, intelligence and control over their real-time data. We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to help build our core data platform which ingests, enriches, transforms, shapes, and routes data from and to numerous types of third party systems. Some may say Cribl’s greatest accomplishment thus far is having our software deployed in some of the largest organizations in the world, processing up to petabytes of IT & Security data. Others may attribute that to our massive amount of goat gifs that we’ve harvested from the Internet. It’s difficult to know for sure.

As a Senior Engineer at Cribl, you will build the software components that enable LogStream to collect and send data between closed and open source systems. Additionally, you will provide technical and thought leadership to the team in order to continually improve our technologies, tools, and processes. This role is equal parts research and development. If you enjoy the challenges of building scalable, robust, and high performing distributed systems which process large data sets in real time, this role might be the right one for you. In this role, you will join a team of skilled engineers committed to shipping the highest quality software and ensuring our customers’ satisfaction. This is a fully remote role and Cribl is a remote first company. Our culture embraces the diversity of team members spread all across the globe.
