The service will allow our customers critical security and observability operations to run uninterrupted while performing tasks such as software upgrades, security improvements and health monitoring.

As a Senior Engineer you will be part of our leadership team and you will lead and be accountable for implementing various features for the Agent Manager service. Your primary area of focus will be related within backend technology and you will own subpart of our Agent Management platform. More than this during your day to day work you will review and provide feedback on feature design, on a variety of features. Senior Engineers within this team will review and guide development of all aspect of our Full Stack platform and server components as well the CI/CD of the service. They will ensure that observability is built into the system, Service Level Objectives (SLO) are defined, monitored and met and that engineers are alerted when performance degrades. They will work with senior members of other teams in the Splunk eco-system to ensure their services provide the required functionality and that integration is seamless. They will collaborate with Product Management to translate business requirements into technical tasks and provide an estimation for implementing them.
