Who are we looking for?
We are often the first line of technical analysis for cross-component issues and it is not uncommon that we are tasked with creating a design requiring coordination between multiple teams. So, on top of familiarizing ourselves with Docker, Azure, OpenStack, AWS, VMWare, and more, we also need to have a good understanding of what entire Dynatrace monitoring does. Bearing that in mind it is clear, that good communications skills are of tremendous help in our responsibilities.
What do we expect from you?
About teams, you may join
Infrastructure Monitoring Agents Team
Working in Infrastructure Monitoring Agents team means developing the very heart of Dynatrace SaaS and Managed agent based monitoring. Working in the vanguard of handling various rapidly changing New Stack applications means that there are little to no solutions publicly available and we are the first to provide them. Being part of Infrastructure Monitoring Agents team, therefore, is associated with learning a wide array of new technologies and designing how to monitor them.
At the end of the day, we go to sleep richer with knowledge about new technologies and with a sense of fulfillment bolstered by an end to end functionality that we provide.
Dynatrace Plugins Team
In the team that creates plugins for Dynatrace SaaS/Managed products, we learn how new technologies work. Sometimes it's about things that are out there for some time already and have a big market adoption. Sometimes it's about technologies which are new on the market. In order to create a plugin, we need to setup the environment where we can test it. We focus on performance, so we try to simulate real life usages where we can reason what's important from that point of view to users of that technology. In our daily work we work with python (plugins itself), C++ and Java (both for extending the plugins framework, Java additionally for creating various tests), vagrant and chef (we base our technology test environments on it).
It's not always pure fun as sometimes we struggle with making a technology use case work or need to fight with installing a specific version of the technology or adapting our Vagrantfiles so that they work with AWS or ESXi or spend some time looking at console to find the mbean that id of interest to us or edit a json file for which we did not manage to create a UI for. The result of our work extends the functionality of the whole Dynatrace SaaS/Managed product with the visibility for the given technology. Let's take Elastic Search as an example. Without the plugin, we had the product a service level view of it. For example when Java applications were accessing it. With a plugin, we extended our product so that it has a close eye on the performance metrics that Elastic Search is providing.
