Senior Software Engineer, Monitoring

Our team's mission is to build a platform that enables us to monitor the services running across our entire infrastructure. We operate at high scale - billions of data points per day, providing metrics, alerts, dashboards.
Box is transitioning to a service-oriented architecture running as containers in our data centers and multiple public clouds such as AWS, GCP, and more. We have to rethink our monitoring strategies for this new larger scale, ephemeral, hybrid cloud world.
The team has an enormous impact on the business as it provides engineers with the eyes to monitor their services and ensure a great customer experience. We are looking for big thinkers and innovators to take on this problem space and deliver world-class solutions. We are a small, passionate team that thinks big and is not afraid of huge, gnarly problems. If these challenges excite you, come join us.
Why the team needs you
Moving to a service-oriented architecture, containers and a hybrid cloud, bring with it a new set of challenges for us.
