About the role

We are looking for a full-stack Senior Software Engineer to expand our monitoring, metrics and alerting capabilities. As a founding member of our engineering team, you’ll meet with customers and collaborate with the founders to take initiatives from initial concept to delivery.


  • Develop and maintain the Cronitor web application, used by hundreds of teams every day.
  • Speak directly with customers to identify opportunities and refine ideas.
  • Write clear product specs and collaborate with the founders on the product roadmap.
  • Write robust and maintainable code in Python and JavaScript.
  • Create beautiful user interfaces and extend our design system using React and Tailwind.
  • Document the entire creative process through blog posts and product guides.
  • Care passionately about customer success and collaborate with the team on incoming support requests.

You will thrive if

  • You want to do more than write code.
  • You believe monitoring is a critical component of a software system, and have experience (and opinions) about modern monitoring tools - Sentry, Datadog, New Relic, etc
  • You like to write -- emails, documentation, blog posts, whatever. You find clarity and joy in putting words to paper screen.
  • You enjoy the challenge and fun of a polyglot system. Our core product is written in Python and JavaScript, our Linux and Kubernetes agents are written in Golang, and we publish open source SDKs for many popular languages.
  • You have an eye and a bias for automation. You also have an eye for the trade-offs and pitfalls of trying to over-automate too early.
  • You thrive in a small team with a loose structure.
  • You are a kind and thoughtful human who enjoys collaborating with other kind and thoughtful humans.


  • Competitive salary and meaningful equity. As an early employee you are taking a risk on us, and should be compensated appropriately.
  • Full health-care premium reimbursement (or max allowed by law).
  • $500 learning & development stipend.
  • 8 week fully paid parental leave policy.
  • Fully remote with flexible working schedule and vacation policy.
