Meet Our Team
We are the team responsible for WBD's in-house real user monitoring (RUM) solution providing end-to-end visibility into the performance and health of user journeys in near-real time. Identifying, remediating, and preventing customer quality of experience issues becomes a big data problem when you consider the number of users, the number of actions they are taking, and the number of handoffs in the experience.

You will enable engineering teams, operations analysts, and site reliability engineers to make sense of streams of data for millions of concurrent users so we can understand what is going wrong and mitigate those problems before they become widespread outages. You will help us build out applications, services, and event stream processing pipelines that support the monitoring and automated mitigation of issues in our 24/7 environment. Specifically:
Design and implement data processing pipelines that create business metrics from large amounts of application health and performance event data
Design and implement new storage related solutions to support data monitoring and analytics visualizations
Design and implement internal tools and services to help engineers debug customer-impacting issues
Grow your ability to design, implement, and own critical features of a product used by millions of customers
