Site Reliability Engineer
LogRocket's mission is to help engineering and product teams create excellent experiences for their customers. By recording videos of user session, along with logs and network data, LogRocket intelligently highlights UX issues and surfaces the root cause of every bug.
In this role, you'll build and maintain the tooling and infrastructure that allows LogRocket and our customers to deploy, scale, and monitor a high-throughput event processing system. You will handle on-call events, help with issue resolution, own post-mortems, and advocate for changes to improve the stability and security of the platform. For customers with on-premise hosting, you will be a technical resource to help them effectively run LogRocket in uniquely constrained environments across a variety of cloud offerings.
We recently raised a $15M Series B and are currently doubling in usage every few weeks. It's a great time to join!

LogRocket was founded in 2016 by Matthew Arbesfeld and Ben Edelstein, a computer science duo who have been building products together since the 3rd grade. Frustrated by how difficult it was to understand their customers' experiences, Arbesfeld and Edelstein set out towards an audacious goal: make every experience on the web as perfect as possible.
Our team is a diverse group who bring an eclectic set of experiences from Google, Meteor, Drift, HubSpot, MIT and Columbia. We enjoy lunch together every day in our airy downtown Boston office, learning more about each other at our Show and Tells, and hosting our friends during #logrocketeer events. We focus on building our software with care and craftsmanship -- our engineering blog posts give you a taste of that -- and we welcome talented people from all backgrounds. Many of us have important spaces in our lives -- whether it be family, social organizations, schools, or former companies -- and we're doing all we can to make LogRocket another one.
LogRocket is an equal opportunity employer. We celebrate diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive environment for all employees.
