  • 12 months: You are well-known within the community, able to answer the majority of user questions around Prometheus, starting to provide advice/consulting for non-standard scenarios, contributing to the project, and giving public talks

Robust Perception is the world’s leading company dedicated to the Prometheus monitoring system, with customers from startups to Fortune 500s. We are known for our expertise and contributions to Prometheus, our weekly blog posts, and are behind the Prometheus: Up&Running book which is coming out later this year. Our offices are based in the GEC in Dublin 8, near Thomas Street.

Responsibilities:

  • Research and write blog posts and other material about Prometheus
  • Promote both Prometheus and the company via community engagement
  • Collaborate with the open-source Prometheus community to develop it and its ecosystem
  • Develop the company’s online training courses
  • Provide consulting and support to our customers

Requirements:

  • Good written communication skills
  • Can debug code/systems problems
  • Can program in at least one language (e.g. Go)
  • Bachelor’s degree in a Computing-related subject, or equivalent experience

As this is a mid-level position it is expected that you will only some of the items “Nice to have” listed below, so don’t let it scare you away from applying. Part of the job is gaining those skills which you don’t already have.

Nice to have:

  • Contributions to an open source project

About Stride

Rapid change in higher education and the employment landscape means there are more options and opportunities to do what you love than ever! But navigating all those options to choose the right path is getting more complex – causing costly problems for students (and parents!), schools, colleges and employers. Doing what you love is best for everyone!

Stride makes learning and career discovery personal. We use machine learning to understand every student’s aptitudes, interests, motivations, etc and introduce them to opportunities they’ll love through people who are further along that journey!

What’s the opportunity?

Stride is eh, making strides…so we’re looking for another big dreamer to join our tight-knit, ambitious and innovative engineering team.

What will I be doing?

Stride engineers:

  • Positively impact our technical architecture and strategy.
  • Work fast to solve complex problems collaboratively.

  • Own your solutions and own the feedback. Great work is always recognised. Failure is celebrated for the positive lessons learned.
  • Care deeply about the impact you’re making for our users.
  • Obsess about the best user experience and empathise with our user’s journey.
  • Take pride in bringing your best to each user.

What skills do I need?

We’re hiring for a range of experience and skill sets. You’ll have:

  • Demonstrated ability to write great code. Specific technologies and years of experience are not our primary concern. Your ability to learn fast, code well and passion for your craft are most important.
  • Ideally, you’ll have some MVC experience for frontend and/or backend technologies.

Good to expert knowledge of two or more of the following:

  • Ruby on Rails (BIG advantage!)
  • REACT / AngularJS / Ember
  • Python
  • Postgres / MySQL
  • Java for Android
  • REACT native / Cordova / Ionic
  • Machine learning
  • AWS / Azure

Diversity is one of our core values – in terms of what Stride aims to achieve and in terms of how we operate.

  • Play a key role in a fast-growing start-up supported by the NDRC, Enterprise Ireland, LEO and EU – based in the NDRC (Digital Exchange)
