At SimCorp, we are currently in the process of re-thinking (and redesigning) our telemetry framework and tools and are looking for a lead software developer to join the Observability product area. If you are passionate about data and can envision a solution and build it from the ground up - we are looking for you! 

Ideally, you are AWS or Azure certified and can utilize cloud services to their potential while being conscious of the costs associated with them and able to quickly estimate it. 

Observability or telemetry analytics at SimCorp is presently consumed in different solutions such as Azure Monitor (Application Insights, Log Analytics etc), Elastic Cloud and Grafana which in turn ingest disparate data sets in various formats such as time-series, logs, business metrics and more. 

Making sense of the data we capture from our systems makes up a good portion of the work that lays ahead and you are expected to participate in the effort – therefore experience in modelling and analyzing data and working with dashboards would be a significant advantage. 

You will be part of a scrum team and follow their agile ceremonies, but you should also together with the Scrum master and Product Owner as the Tech Lead be responsible for the technical runway of the Observability product area containing 3 agile scrum teams based in Kyiv.
