The Data Collection Connectors team is a dynamic technology group with a mission to provide Splunk customers with the ability to collect an ever-growing list of machine data sources, and route it to Splunk or other destinations. The team is building state-of-the-art capabilities in real-time messaging, streaming systems and monitoring that will greatly impact how Splunk’s customers collect their vast amounts of machine data easily and route that data reliably to the desired destinations.

  • Exposure to working with REST APIs
  • Familiarity with test-driven development, writing various levels of automated tests, such as unit test, functional test, integration test, system test, or performance / load test
  • Familiarity with CI/CD, such as Jenkins, GitLab CI, or Bitbucket pipeline
  • Familiarity with modern version control system, such as Git
  • Experience building meaningful software applications: in a class, as a personal hobby, as a job, as part of an open source project
  • Experience collaborating with others in a fast-paced environment
  • Strong communication skills, verbal and written
  • Able to learn new technologies quickly
  • Actively pursuing a Bachelor's, Master's, or PhD in Computer Science, Software Engineering, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mathematics or a related technical field, and a strong record of academic achievement.

What We Offer You:

  • A set of exceptionally talented and dedicated peers, all the way from engineering and QA to product management and customer support.
  • Growth and mentorship. We believe in growing engineers through ownership and leadership opportunities. We also believe mentors help both sides of the equation.
  • A stable, collaborative and supportive work environment.
  • We don't expect people to work 12 hour days. We want you to have a successful time outside of work too. Want to work from home sometimes? No problem. We trust our colleagues to be responsible with their time and dedication, and believe that balance helps cultivate an extraordinary environment.
