Python Monitoring Dev Lead

You will be leading a team of software and dev-ops engineers while contributing technically to projects. Work closely with the other teams of software engineers, data scientists, dev-ops engineers and program managers to ensure best architectures and products are used around monitoring.

The Monitoring team is in charge of providing and maintaining the infrastructure and software to monitor the health of the whole Criteo platform. This covers the complete hardware and software stack: from status and statistics of network switches to high-level application metrics like the number of clicks observed. The team has also developed dedicated tools based on statistical methods and machine learning techniques to detect anomalies and ease analysis of issues.

To cover this large scope, the team is composed of both software and dev-ops engineers.

Monitoring roadmap for 2016 include a big shift in our approach by switching from a centralized to a service-oriented system (Monitoring as a service - MaaS). Providing each team with the means to properly monitor its applications leveraging the different data sources available to them in both user- and programmer-friendly interfaces.
