Job Description

This is a remote opportunity and we would be interested in applicants from America EST timezones only at this time.

The Explore squad is part of the Platform UX team in the Grafana Division. We are responsible for the Explore section of Grafana. We also contribute to other projects across the division. We’re currently working on improving our end-to-end observability workflow, improving the user flow across Explore and introducing new and valuable features for the Explore persona. All of this while maintaining our project, supporting the community & customers and also building a more robust testing strategy. We are currently on a growth track and are constantly reviewing our ways of working to make sure they are scalable and accessible to everyone.

Come and join us if you’re passionate about anything and everything Observability, OSS, Grafana.

We look for team mates with the following skills

  • You are comfortable working in a remote-first company; communication is key. For us, working together means being collaborative, friendly, kind and respectful. We value autonomy and enabling decisions over committees and red tape. You have at least a couple of years of experience as a Frontend developer. We are a distributed team, working remotely, on a product that will be used by engineers all over the world – the ability to work on your own, and ship working code is crucial.
  • You have a good understanding of a software development process that takes a user-centered approach.
  • You easily build an understanding of the users’ context and goals which will help you build the right solution that brings the biggest value to them.
  • You know how to transform ideas into working code – you are able to design a solution, get feedback, and write a prototype by yourself.
  • You are a self-driven individual who understands the power of feedback loops in making roadmap decisions and driving our product forward.
  • You are able to communicate the design decisions clearly in written and spoken English.
  • You enjoy working on complex solutions – Grafana is a highly technological solution and has avid followers who rely on it every day and care deeply about their workflows.
  • You have an active interest in the three observability pillars and how they come together to build a powerful workflow

What we use

  • We work with React as our framework, Typescript, Redux, and RxJS
  • We use Storybook to communicate internally and externally (e.g plugin developers can see what the component library looks like and offers) 
  • Emotion is our choice when it comes to styling, but there’s some SASS around too
  • Webpack is our current bundler
  • We use Golang for code that needs to live on the backend

What we work on

  • The team collaborates on reviewing feature requests from the OSS community and our customer base, identifying high-level roadmap themes, and overall driving the direction of observability at Grafana Labs.
  • Our business as usual includes raising and fixing bugs, developing and testing new features, trialing innovative ideas for our products, close collaboration with UX, contributing to design docs, and more.
  • We are currently focusing on enhancing the observability workflow in Grafana by developing seamless logs-metrics-traces integrations, further developing the Explore page functionality, and improving our CI/CD and testing pipelines.
  • We are also closely collaborating with other squads in order to enhance the Grafana user onboarding journey
