About Grafana Labs:

There are more than 700,000 active installations of Grafana around the globe, monitoring everything from beehives to climate change in the Alps. The instantly recognizable dashboards have been spotted everywhere from a SpaceX launch and Minecraft HQ to Wimbledon and the Tour de France. Grafana Labs also helps companies including Bloomberg, JPMorgan Chase, and eBay manage their observability strategies with full-stack offerings that can be run fully managed with Grafana Cloud, or self-managed with Grafana Enterprise Stack. The Grafana stack has grown to include two other open-source projects, Grafana Loki (for logs) and Grafana Tempo (for traces).

This is a remote position. We are looking for candidates in EMEA/EST time zones.

We’re looking for amazing individuals to help us grow and shape the future of the Grafana plugin ecosystem. Our primary goal is creating integrations that help users unlock the power of their data. Our mission is to give users the capability to aggregate data from any source they have within their environment, opening the door to a new way of thinking about observability. We want users to be able to leverage Grafana to view the entire lifecycle of their infrastructure and software in a composable fashion. We have a passion for the user experience. We take pride in the software that we write and want it to be the best possible experience for our users.

What you’ll be working on:

A normal “day in the life” could include working on a plugin to integrate metrics into Grafana, adding new functionality to our plugin SDKs, or implementing new innovations into our plugin system to allow for enhanced capabilities.

  • You have experience with Typescript, React, Go, GRPC or similar technologies
  • You work well within a team and you’re driven to help others
  • You strive to be better at your craft!
  • You can drive your work independently, but you also know when to reach out for help
  • You care deeply about user experience and the quality of the products that you work on

Bonus points:

  • Experience writing Grafana plugins or working in another plugin development ecosystem
  • Experience working with Apache Arrow or similar columnar data serialization libraries
  • Experience working with data integration systems
