Nimbus reduces Datadog costs by more than 60% without Manual Effort
Nimbus is an intelligent control plane for modern observability. Our mission is to enable FAANG-like observability for every organization in the world. We're starting with an optimization engine to reduce datadog costs by an order of magnitude without manual effort from developers.
How it works: Update three lines in your datadog agent configuration to send data to Nimbus. Nimbus analyzes all incoming logs for common patterns while proxying data upstream. Based on the analysis, Nimbus comes up with optimizations that can be reviewed and deployed by a human in one click. We employ novel compression techniques to reduce billable volume by an order of magnitude without dropping data. You can watch a demo of this at nimbus.dev
We're looking to hire our first founding engineer to help us expand beyond logging. Nimbus today can reduce log volume by over 90% without losing signal - our immediate priorities is to do the same for metrics and traces.
You'll be coming in at the ground level and working directly with our founder at all levels of the stack. We are growing quickly, have multiple years of runway, and expect to be profitable middle of this year.
You'll have autonomy to work across a wide set of challenging problem. A few things you might work on:
Between one and two rounds of phone screens followed by a one month (paid) contracting period. You'll be paid full salary and will be doing the same job as what you would when working with us full time.
We find contracting is a much better way of evaluating fit than a coding screen and gives both us and you a chance to make sure we work well together. Contracting can be terminated early if either party feels its not going well.
And yes, the contracting period does count towards your vesting period if you end up joining with us.
