About teams you may join

Infrastructure Monitoring Agents Team

Working in Infrastructure Monitoring Agents team means developing the very heart of Dynatrace SaaS and Managed agent-based monitoring. Working in the vanguard of handling various rapidly changing New Stack applications means that there are little to no solutions publicly available and we are the first to provide them. Being part of Infrastructure Monitoring Agents team, therefore, is associated with learning a wide array of new technologies and designing how to monitor them.

At the end of the day we go to sleep richer with knowledge about new technologies and with sense of fullfilment bolstered by end to end functionality that we provide.

Dynatrace PHP Agent Team

In the PHP Agent team we do not write e-commerce sites in PHP; rather, we hook into PHP language runtime and monitor its internal workings. This allows one to learn a lot about how dynamic programming languages are implemented and how they operate. PHP itself is written in C with heavy use of macros, but we use C++ for convenience. Occasionally we also extend server components, which means Java. Our job also involves troubleshooting real-life customer problems, which may involve native code debugging (also core dump analysis) using gdb/cgdb; low-level skills grow naturally in such environment. As with any invasive agent, quality is very important in our work. Unit tests are of limited usefulness here due to total dependency on the PHP runtime. We use ATF module tests in combination with integration tests / BigTests, as well as two types of performance tests. Our Agent must work directly with both Dynatrace SaaS (ruxit) and AppMon, so is of course tested with both products in parallel. As PHP is very popular in the Web for application development that usually interface with databases, other web servers etc., PHP Agent is a key component for giving the customers end-to-end view of their systems.
