Instana is looking for a Senior Full Stack Engineer to work from one of our office locations in Solingen, Munich or Novi Sad, or remote from one of the following locations: Germany, The Netherlands, Serbia, UK and Ireland.

At Instana, we process and analyze millions of spans, traces, metrics and events per second in order to provide actionable APM intelligence to our rapidly expanding customer base. This constant stream of telemetry creates a number of challenges that must be met with operational agility, as well as strong architecture, design and development.

As a member of the team focused on log management in Instana you will work with reactive Java stream processing and distributed data stores. You will contribute to the full lifecycle for new features beginning from the ideation and design process over taking responsibility for the implementation in both frontend and backend until it is rolled out to our beloved customers.

On the frontend side, you will work on a React based UI which is tuned for high performance using a modern reactive approach. We expect experience with UI Design best practices, a good understanding of SPA architecture and best practices in implementing reusable UI components.

On the Backend side, you will work on a reactive Java stream processing application (Dropwizard, Reactor, Kafka) and different distributed data stores (Cassandra, ClickHouse, ElasticSearch).

Moreover, you will come across a wide range of technologies, like infrastructure and Cloud platforms (Kubernetes, AWS, GCP, IBM Cloud, and others), tracing and instrumentation, and data science.

Ideally, you are proficient in Java and its ecosystem, have experience in using Reactive Extensions (Rx) in Java and have firsthand experience of troubleshooting production issues, because this will help you understand the type of problems Instana is solving for our customers. Furthermore, you should be open to learning new technologies and willing to get your hands dirty across the entire software stack. Last but not least, you love to work in an agile and fast-paced startup environment.

We offer competitive salary and benefits, remote work, free choice of the operating system, regular offsite events (once possible again), and interesting work in a fast-growing environment. Does this sound like you? Then come work for the most modern application monitoring vendor in the field!
