We're looking for candidates who value continually refining their skills in coding and building tools that benefit the open source development community.

You'll also be working closely with your team, so you'll need to be empathic, supportive, and excited to teach as well as learn.

This role will be based in our San Francisco HQ, local candidates please.

Working with the Open Source community to improve Telegraf
Effectively troubleshooting issues and addressing bugs
Communicating in writing and developing publically with the Telegraf/InfluxDB community

Extensive experience with Git
Bonus if you have:

Professional experience with Go
Have worked or contributed to Telegraf or other Open Source projects
