Our products empower people and organizations to work better together, using technology that adapts to their way – not the other way. The world's best companies depend on Jive to unleash the ideas and impact of their employees, partners and customers.

The DevOps intern will be responsible for building a team dashboard, to aggregate and present data from various sources including: Datadog, Bitbucket, Jira, Sumologic, and Collins. The dashboard will be deployed to Jive’s microservices platform, and the interface will be on permanent display in the team’s seating area. The dashboard must be customizable by the team, so that we can continue to maintain the service and ensure that we have relevant data.

The position is located in Portland, Oregon.


There are a number of milestones for this project:

  • MS1: Learn about Jive’s microservices platform on Kubernetes.
    • The intern will gain an understanding of the Jive microservice environment, and our team will gain insight on how to improve our Onboarding process and platform documentation.
  • MS2: Choose a dashboarding platform
    • The intern will research dashboarding options, present the options to the team for input, and make a final decision on how to implement the dashboard service.
  • MS3: Create the Minimally Viable Product (MVP)
    • The intern will create a service that is able to display at least two metrics from at least two sources, when visiting an HTTP endpoint. The sources must be configurable in some way.
  • MS4: Secure the service
    • The service must use SSL, and potentially require authorization.
  • MS5 and beyond: Improve and Iterate
    • Generally this will be adding more data sources, and more visualizations, but at this point the team will evaluate the product and define the next features to be added, at the end of each sprint. All remaining Sprint time will be dedicated to iterating on the product to continually improve it.

    • Experience with Go and/or python
