Overview

Grafana Labs is the company behind Grafana, a popular open source tool for visualizing and analyzing metrics with its instantly recognizable dashboards.  With both its open source technology and enterprise products, Grafana Labs allows organizations to understand their metrics no matter where they are stored, and create, explore, and share dashboards to foster a data-driven culture.  Founded in 2014, Grafana Labs has grown rapidly ever since. We are believers in the power of global, distributed teams: Talent is not limited by borders, and great workplaces are made up of exceptional colleagues. We have aggressive growth plans and are an ambitious, hardworking, and friendly team.
This is a remote opportunity and we would be interested in applications from a European or North Americas (Eastern or Central) timezone (other time zones will be considered on a case by case basis)
About the Enterprise Squads:
Our enterprise squads work on building plugins and functionality as extensions on top of our open source projects to support the security, reliability and scalability needs of enterprises and organisations with large deployments.
The daily work often spans both open source and proprietary code.
Backend engineering roles at Grafana require engineers with a passion for performance, reliability, and who enjoy taking projects from conception to production. The teams focus on delivering functionality from the roadmap, fixing bugs and helping Support & Sales Engineering teams.
Our culture is one of remote-first, and our engineering organization is largely remote. We provide guidance and meet regularly using video calls, and we need people who can work independently and can communicate well. Our teams also plan in-person team building meetups and also gather to attend industry conferences.
