About the End User Monitoring (EUM) team

AppDynamics server agents kick-ass at measuring server-side performance across your application. But with the shift to highly interactive websites and mobile apps, an increasing number of performance problems are caused by client-side code or internet latency. End-User Monitoring measures the performance that your real users’ experience by instrumenting client-side platform APIs. EUM complements server-side monitoring and has four main components:

  • Browser Agents
  • Mobile Agents
  • Synthetic Agents
  • EUM Cloud

About the Java APM team

Java APM is our flagship product. Complex Java web applications often contain frustrating blind spots and mysterious, recurring problems. The AppDynamics platform provides real-time visibility into how your applications perform inside many of the industry-leading Java application servers including Weblogic, WebSphere, JBoss, Tomcat, Glassfish and more. The team’s job is to make sure we are up to date with all the new frameworks and libraries that our customers use to provide complete visibility into their application.

About the Platform team

Platform engineering powers AppDynamics’ Application Intelligence solutions. You will have opportunity to define and build services from scratch by using the proper frameworks and picking the right tools. You will have the chance to breaking monolithic backend into highly available, scalable and well monitored microservices. You will learn how to achieve all of those while serving billions of request at the meanwhile.

About the Server Infrastructure Monitoring team

You will be building a scalable system to monitor all kinds of infrastructure from hardware to containers to storage, automated root cause analysis, and infrastructure dependency mappings.  Also, you will be delivering innovations that make complex problems (massively distributed application analysis and management) easy for our customers to tackle.

About the Database Monitoring  team

We are building a Database Visibility offering for modern applications and database infrastructures (including SQLServer, Oracle, Oracle RAC, Postgres, DB2, MongoDB, Amazon RDS, Couchbase) that integrates with the AppDynamics platform as a whole and provides new capabilities for monitoring and analytics. The product is evolving to offer increased visibility into database infrastructure issues impacting production applications and an increased ability to monitor, isolate, and diagnose end-to-end application problems. Your role is to make that evolution happen.

About the Analytics Team

Engineers in this team have a passion for building large scale distributed systems software using modern architecture principles. They understand how to maximize the utilization of a single server by leveraging concurrency as well as how to scale an application horizontally via a micro-services based architecture. This position requires:

  • A sound foundation in object oriented programming
  • Collaboration with product managers to understand requirements and translate to optimal engineering designs
  • Ability to design, document, implement and test software solutions that extend our Analytics platform and solutions built on it
  • Deploy and run the software in production by handling complex issues in our SaaS environment

About the .NET team

Ever marvel how C# is translated down to the machine level by language and JIT compilers? Are you a .NET guru, understanding how the data flows through stacks? Are you a divide-and-conquer engineer who is able to grok a complex problem, break it down, code, debug and test, and put it all together?

Our mandate is to understand and instrument the latest frameworks to ensure that our customers gain complete visibility into the performance of their applications. You will learn how .NET works at the core level and grow as an engineer within our rich mentoring environment, and have the opportunity to contribute your own ideas and shape the direction of the product.
