Splunk has recently acquired VictorOps, a late-stage startup in Boulder, Colorado. VictorOps has built a real-time incident management SaaS platform for DevOps teams, with a diverse group of very hardworking and driven individuals, and a senior leadership team that comes from a deep technical background. We care deeply about our customers and strive to improve the quality of life of the on-call technical worker (that's us, too).

You collaborate with your team of developers, your Product Owner and QA on new features and maintenance within the VictorOps Webclient UI, as well as enabling the marketing content team to iterate quickly on the public-facing website. You innovate, make forward-thinking bugfixes, help us address customer concerns, and help us make improvements to internal tooling and processes.
