About the role

In this role, you will work with the engineers and executives in DevOps, SRE, and development teams across different customers to architect their observability processes and systems. You will not only advise the customer teams in their architecture and design of the Chronosphere platform but will act as a best practice advisor in their observability goals.

In this role you will

  • Interface with the customer's executive and leadership teams to understand the technical goals and business objectives related to their observability processes, design their Chronosphere implementation to best fit those requirements, and correlate the technical success criteria to the business requirements.
  • Work with the customer's technical teams to analyze and understand current monitoring, metrics, and observability practices and processes, design and guide the implementation of the optimized Chronosphere setup for integration, scale, and repeatability.
  • Document, share and get the necessary customer approvals for the detailed design and architecture.
  • Document and share the different learnings, customer processes, and solutions with relevant internal Chronosphere teams and contribute to the product design. ● Build out internal reference architecture and design docs, and an advanced technical knowledge base.
  • Work closely with pre-sales and other post-sales teams to ensure that Chronosphere customers are successful and experience a high level of customer satisfaction with the solution.

You have

  • BA/BS degree in Computer Science or a relevant field
  • 5+ years of experience with DevOps, monitoring, or related domains.
  • Direct hands-on experience with Docker, Kubernetes, AWS, GCP, Azure, or other modern cloud-native technologies and platforms
  • Good to have prior experience with monitoring or observability tools (New Relic, Datadog, Prometheus, Grafana, Splunk, etc.)
  • Experience delivering custom solutions to customers of all sizes, whether internal or external.
  • You are a perpetual learner, detail-oriented and analytical, with excellent written and verbal communication skills.
  • Willingness to travel up to 25% if onsite customer engagement returns to normal. ● If you have been an operator building DevOps and observability solutions with an enterprise without customer-facing experience, you are welcome to apply.

Nice to have

  • Proficiency with the command line, and basic UNIX troubleshooting skills
  • Prior experience at a SaaS vendor and in managing the entire customer life cycle including renewals.
  • Prior experience with monitoring or observability tools (New Relic, Datadog, Splunk, etc.) ● Hands-on experience with the Prometheus data model and PromQL
