Solarwinds Inc. Senior Full Stack Developer in Durham, NC, North Carolina


AppOptics ( is a monitoring platform that gives our customers (software engineers like us) deep understanding of how their applications are performing.

As a monitoring product we collect a lot of data, but that's only half the battle: one of the biggest challenges we face is turning that data into a product that helps engineers and is satisfying to use. We're looking for a full stack web application developer to help us grow and refine AppOptics. If you're interested in data visualization, monitoring, or distributed systems then this could be the job for you.

Our stack consists of ES6, React, and Redux talking via REST and GraphQL to Rails and Sinatra apps. We develop locally in Docker containers and deploy to AWS.

The AppOptics team is small (but growing) and tightly knit. We ship early and often so that we can iterate on user feedback, we're always evaluating new technologies to see if they will benefit us, and we have lots of opportunities for individuals to have a big impact.
