Remote

Cribl’s LogStream unlocks the value of all machine data in ways that were previously not possible by providing users a new level of observability, intelligence and control over their real-time data. We are looking for a Staff Engineer to help build our core data platform which ingests, enriches, transforms, shapes, and routes data from and to numerous types of third party systems. Some may say Cribl’s greatest accomplishment thus far is having our software deployed in some of the largest organizations in the world processing up to petabytes of IT & Security data. Others may attribute that to our massive amount of goat gifs that we’ve harvested from the Internet. It’s difficult to know for sure.
