Remote job description

This is a remote opportunity and we would be interested in applicants from EMEA time zones only at this time.

Plugins are core to Grafana's Big Tent Philosophy - the more sources of data and functionality that we support, the more we can achieve our goal of democratizing metrics. As such, plugins are a valuable and necessary part of our community. We are hoping our plugin catalog will continue to grow through our community, our own internal development, and our plugin partnerships.

The AWS Data Sources squad is part of the OSS Data Source Partnerships group. Our focus is specifically on open source data source plugins with external partnerships.

A selection of data source plugins we own:

A selection of projects we're currently working on & planning for:

  • More data source plugins in collaboration with AWS
  • Enhancements to existing plugins to vastly improve configuration and user experience
  • Technical and feature consistency across our plugins to match our plugin maturity framework

A typical "day in the life" could include:

  • Building full stack open source Grafana data source plugins to enable visualizing data in Grafana while keeping your data where it is

At the same time, you know how to recognize ideas and solutions that bring the biggest value to them and have the biggest impact on their experience.
  • You approach development holistically. The team owns the full life cycle of our code; from writing design docs, to looking at community feedback, and QA testing. We appreciate engineers who enjoy looking at the big picture, and also notice the details of the brush strokes.
