The Observability team is in charge of developing solutions that focus on application developers and engineers that run infrastructure and services supporting these applications. Elasticsearch is an efficient datastore for logs, metrics, application traces and profiling data. The Observability team builds and maintains solutions that make getting insights from this data turnkey and efficient, such as our APM, Infrastructure Monitoring, Logs and Universal Profiling solutions. When developing these solutions, we think about the problem end-to-end: how do we automatically collect data from common data sources, how do we store it efficiently in Elasticsearch, how do we present this information to the user, what actions do we take on the insights from the data? All of these aspects are important in bringing a turnkey solution to the market.
As a Senior Go Engineer, Observability Intake Services, you will be part of a team developing high quality observability products that are essential to the ingest flow of the Elastic Observability solution. You will be mainly focusing on the intake service components, for on-prem deployments and hosted on Elastic Cloud. This includes building components and services that receive and validate signals from Elastic APM or OpenTelemetry SDKs, as well as profiling agents, and transform them into Elasticsearch documents. The intake service components control the amount of data flowing into Elasticsearch and can buffer data temporarily without adding overhead to the applications on the edge. As part of the Intake Services team, you’ll be building and maintaining existing features in Go, with a focus on quality, performance, reliability, security and testability. The team has a strong focus on automation and continuous improvements. You’ll be collaborating with team colleagues and across team boundaries. We appreciate community contributions, and as such, engaging with the open source community is also an important part of this role.
You will closely collaborate with the rest of the Intake Services team, interact with the rest of the Observability team and the Elasticsearch team when optimizing data models for storage and query performance, and with many more, such as the platform and the Cloud team for ensuring our services perform well in the Elastic Cloud.
The team is diverse and distributed across the world, and collaborates on a daily basis over GitHub, Zoom, and Slack.
