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.
In June 2021, Grafana Labs acquired k6- a Stockholm-based startup behind the open-source load testing tool for engineering teams. With k6, Grafana Labs adds extensible testing to its open and composable Grafana observability stack.
At k6, we build next-generation performance testing tools for developers and DevOps engineers.
We are pushing the state-of-the-art in our industry, creating open-source tools focused on a great developer experience. k6 is an open-source tool that we built to reinvent the engineering principles around performance testing with a mission to empower engineers to build highly resilient and scalable systems.
You will be a part of the k6 team that focuses on Grafana Cloud k6, our commercial product built around the OSS k6, targeted at users wanting to run performance tests at scale. Our SaaS offering allows customers to load test their systems by running distributed tests from 15+ regions worldwide, using hundreds of thousands of virtual users sending millions of requests per second. We ingest huge volumes of data generated by k6, which can be used to view, correlate and analyze metrics from each test.
k6 is a product used by other engineers, and as such, we are looking for people enthusiastic about building high-quality tools they would want to use themselves. Due to our small teams and fast development pace, you will have a substantial and immediate impact on how the end product is architected, developed, and how the engineering team operates. Most importantly, you will work with competent colleagues and will be able to expand your knowledge and skills in different directions.
Your main responsibilities will be to:
