Observe is a SaaS Observability product which enables businesses to investigate modern distributed applications 10x faster. Observe ingests anything with a timestamp (e.g. system and application logs, metrics, and traces), and then structures that data so that it is correlated and easy to navigate. We enable engineers to spend more time coding features and less time investigating incidents. Finally, because of Observe’s unique elastic architecture, it is priced based on usage, making it cost 10x less than incumbents. Watch this video

Traditional approaches to this problem have resulted in fragmented tooling and fragile dashboards which, in turn, have resulted in exploding costs and complexity. At Observe, we believe that the core challenge lies in organizing and relating telemetry data emitted by those applications, despite the fact it is constantly changing. Solving this data problem makes observability and order of magnitude easier, faster, and less expensive. At Observe, we didn’t set out to build another monitoring tool company, we set out to build a data company. Observe is founded by top enterprise VC Sutter Hill Ventures and has a founding team from leading Enterprise SaaS companies Snowflake, Splunk, and Wavefront.
What does a Observability Engineer do?
You can’t fix what you can’t measure. Towards that end, Observe is looking for folks who can help us build 3rd-party integrations to ingest and make sense of streams of real-time operational telemetry (e.g. logs, performance metrics, events, etc.) from the diverse spectrum of infrastructure and applications that our customers run their businesses on: AWS, GCP, Azure, Kubernetes, CI/CD platforms, and whatever other critical software infrastructure a customer might have. Beyond collecting and storing the raw data from these sources, Observe adds structure and context to it, in order to help our users answer questions about the services and infrastructure they are responsible for (e.g. How are my APAC servers doing? Which users were affected by that outage?).
As a Software Engineer specializing in “Integrations” at Observe, your role would be to implement reusable solutions to connect the “last mile” between our customers’ critical infrastructure components and Observe’s flexible Observability platform.
