Innovation at Elastic never stops and we are thrilled to join the unrivalled team from Opbeat who are currently working hard to fully integrate their Application Performance Monitoring solution into the Elastic Stack. Welcome Elastic APM! We are currently making major changes to the product as we integrate it with the Elastic Stack, and we are now looking for a talented, Senior JavaScript Engineer to work on our Real User Monitoring (RUM) agent as soon as possible.

The goal of the RUM agent is to let developers obtain information about the end user experience of their applications. The agent is a JavaScript library that is injected into the application JavaScript code and runs in the user browser. The application is automatically instrumented in order to measure the end user experience through metrics. It traces initial page load times, regular resources, XHR/fetch requests and other relevant events.

You will be part of a team developing a high quality, open source APM product aimed to help fellow JavaScript developers instrument, debug, and monitor frontend JavaScript applications. As part of the agent team, you’ll be deeply involved with the entire codebase and take on responsibilities for new features, improving the resource footprint and roadmap planning.

Specifically you will be responsible for developing code that integrates with several JavaScript frameworks, including ReactJS.

You will also work closely with the APM Server team when adding new features to the server API and with the UI team to ensure that we deliver the best possible experience for JavaScript developers.

What you will be doing

  • Join the JavaScript RUM Agent APM team alongside one other person on the team.
  • Improve the JavaScript RUM agent.
  • Build new integrations to frameworks like React, Vue.js etc.
  • Handle pull requests and issues from the open source community.
  • Collaborate with APM Server and UI teams to ensure the best experience possible for JavaScript developers

What you will bring

  • 8+ years of experience with JavaScript in-depth experience
  • Previous demonstrable APM experience is required.
  • Knowledge of browser and JavaScript engines inner workings, needed to be able to build a frontend APM agent.
  • Experience working with modern JavaScript frameworks (React, Angular, Vue.js, Ember, etc).
  • Ability to work independently in a globally distributed team

Additional Information

  • Competitive pay and benefits
  • Option to work 100% remote or from any office
  • Stock options
  • An environment in which you can balance great work with a great life
  • Passionate people building phenomenal products
  • Your age is only a number. It doesn't matter if you're just out of college or your children are; we need you for what you can do.
