librato.com & papertrail.com, San Francisco CA

Librato and Papertrail recently joined forces with Pingdom as part of the Solarwinds Cloud family. We're respectively industry leaders in metrics and log/event management/analysis-as-a-Service. We process billions of events in real-time every day for tens of thousands of users with a small team of ~20 engineers.

We're looking to expand our engineering teams to help build the next generation of real-time IT analytics products. We're looking for great frontend engineers, data pipeline engineers, designers, etc. We're a modern shop that practices chatops and continuous delivery using tools like Slack, Github, Asana, AWS, Salt, etc

You can find a list of current openings at http://solarwinds.jobs/jobs/?q=librato+papertrail

It's AWS-style metered and billed monthly based on the number of time-series or "data streams" you're sending us.

Yup! We actually linked to that from the article as an example C implementation. It's really solid and also has a Librato backend ;-). We're already using it on a several high-throughput services internally and it will probably warrant it's own post in the future.

Front End Developer - Data visualization, Coffeescript, jQuery

Operations Engineer - AWS, Chef, ChatOps, Continuous Delivery

If you're looking for something a little more packaged and not averse to installing a Ruby gem, this will manage multiple AWS accounts and allow you to ssh/scp using AWS instance IDs as the target: https://github.com/mheffner/awsam

It's ~7-10% amongst males depending on where you source your number.

Please forgive my total insensitivity..

3%+ of total population sounds like enough people to pressure at least one video card vendor to offer equivalent remapping. So why is this a web design problem?

-----


That depends. Is your business doing so well you can afford to be too lazy to cater to 3-5% of the population?

(And what part of "design" doesn't include usability, anyway?)

Co-Founder/CTO at Librato here, just wanted to say thanks for the kind words, and include a link ;-): http://librato.com

-----


You should check out Librato (I'm a co-founder), we let you define your own metrics and build dashboards: https://metrics.librato.com

-----


Could not agree more. This is the approach we've strived to take while building https://metrics.librato.com ... API access for everything, integration with popular OSS for metric collection (e.g. statsd, collectd), loosely coupled integration with complementary tools (e.g. Papertrail, Pagerduty), etc.

@josephruscio - I was >this< close to going back and giving a quick mention to Librato Metrics. You guys definitely "get" what I'm talking about. I like that you provide well-defined interfaces for easily getting data into and out of your application. You focus on trending and let other (better?) software handle the other stuff.

-----


I generally paraphrase this effect as such ;-): "There is no aberration detection mechanism more sophisticated than your marketing guy glancing at a dashboard while drinking his coffee."
