Are you motivated by the idea of helping other software engineers make sense of complex systems more easily and get through on-call and incidents with less stress? In this role, you’ll join one of our full-stack product engineering teams, helping to build and maintain innovative data exploration and visualization experiences that allow our customers to quickly make sense of their systems, identify and diagnose system issues, and watch trends over time.

Honeycomb is built to help engineering teams deeply explore and understand their own production systems — in real time. It's a service for the near and present future, where distributed systems are the new default, every service is a platform, and empowered generalist software engineers are the new ops. We are passionate about consumer-quality developer tools and excited to build technology that raises our industry's expectations of what our tools can do for us. We’re working with well known companies like Hello Fresh, Slack, LaunchDarkly, and Vanguard and more across a range of industries. This is an exciting time in our trajectory, we’ve closed Series C funding, scaled past 100-person mark, and named to Forbes’ America’s Best Startups of 2022!

Who We Are

We come for the impact, and stay for the culture! We’re a talented, opinionated, passionate, fiercely inclusive, and responsible group of bees. We have conviction and we strive to live our values every day. We want our people to do what they truly love amongst a team of highly talented (but humble) peers.

How We Work

We are a remote-first company, which means we believe it is not where you sit, but how you deliver that matters most. We invest in our people and care about how you orient to our culture and processes. At the same time we imbue a lot of trust, autonomy, and accountability from Day 1.

What You'll Do

  • Take on the role of engineering lead. The engineering lead is the primary project manager for each team. You will be the de facto technical lead on the project as well and will work with the other engineers on the team to create technical solutions. You’ll partner and collaborate with product and design in a triad-based model.
  • Create a customer experience that delights our users. You’ll be working on software our customers interact with every day, including our social features, Boards, Service Map, and our Design System. You’ll be creating a great product experience, collaborating daily with design, product management, and other engineers to do so.
  • Build data visualizations and complex web-based user experiences. You’ll be working with our team on some of our most interesting data visualization features.
  • Build quality, well-tested software. You’ll work on the full application stack that our product uses, from our infra code to the Honeycomb UI (Go, and javascript/typescript). You’ll write code that is well-tested and keep a high level of code quality without spending an ever-growing amount of time maintaining those tests. Give kind, thoughtful feedback to other engineers on Pull Requests to the product codebase.
  • Mentor other engineers. As a senior engineer, you’ll have opportunities to lead the team and mentor other engineers as they build their skills. You’ll be pairing, reviewing code, and communicating daily with your team members.
  • Collaborate with other engineering teams. You’ll have opportunities to work with other engineering teams to help them build features, or solve whatever problem they’re working on. You’ll be working with our other product engineering teams to help reduce tech debt and improve best practices across our code-base.

What You Get When You Join The Hive

  • It’s not about how strong of a negotiator you are - our pay is based on transparent levels relative to experience

  • 401k plan to help you plan for your future
  • A remote-first mindset and culture (really!)

  • The tech you need AND a $500 Home Setup Stipend

  • Annual compensation review, benchmarking to industry and inflation changes

Diversity & Accommodations

We're building a diverse and inclusive workplace where we learn from each other, and welcome nontraditional candidates, and people of all backgrounds, experiences, abilities and perspectives. You don't need to be a millennial to join us, all gens are welcome! Further, we (of course) follow federal and state disability laws and are happy to provide reasonable accommodations during the application phase, interview process, and employment. Please email to discuss accessible formats or accommodations. As an equal opportunity employer our hiring process is designed to put you at ease and help you show your best work; if we can do better - we want to know!
