We are Grafana Labs; the company behind the Grafana project. Our proven team is building a SaaS observability platform: Grafana Cloud, and an Enterprise offering: Grafana Enterprise, while cementing Grafana as the leading open source software for time series analytics.

Grafana started out in 2015 and has grown rapidly with 40 international employees and offices in New York, USA and Stockholm, Sweden.  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.

The Role

We are looking for an experienced full-stack engineer to join our growing team.  You will work as part of a cross-functional team and participate in the design and development of our existing and new products.  As a full-stack developer, you will have the opportunity to put your stamp on each feature you work on and to develop innovative solutions to problems.

Do you want the opportunity to help shape the future of time series data? Do you believe in Open Source Software? Talk to us. You'll be helping support the large and growing Grafana Open Source Community by making it easier for them to share plugins, dashboards and other ways to extend Grafana as well as having the opportunity to work on Grafana itself, and we think that's pretty awesome.
