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, and application traces, supporting the three pillars of observability. 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 Uptime 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 JavaScript engineer on the Observability team, you’ll primarily be working on the dedicated UIs and APIs in Kibana devoted to integrations and agent management. You’ll be working with the UI team, and product management to build high quality, intuitive and innovative UIs and robust API to drive the Fleet experience.

Engineering philosophy
