About Us

With our unique AIOps solution, you can take the right action at exactly the right time with automated anomaly detection, rapid root-cause analysis, and a unified view of your entire application ecosystem, including private and public clouds. Using AppDynamics, you'll finally align IT, DevOps, and the business around the information that helps you protect your bottom line and deliver flawless customer experiences at scale.

About the Team

End User Monitoring (EUM) product measures user experience from real users by capturing performance data on end user devices like Browsers, Mobile Devices, IoT Devices et al. Another aspect of EUM is Synthetic User Monitoring (SUM) where we allow customers to test scripted flows against their websites from browsers deployed around the world.

The team manages below EUM agents used by customers to instrument their end user applications.

  • Browser Agent (built on Javascript)
  • Synthetic User Agents
  • Mobile Agents (iOS, Android, Xamarin, Cordova, React Native)
  • IoT SDK (C/C++, Java) and public REST API

The Browser, Mobile and IoT agents capture network calls, end user experience metrics, errors and key stats like device info, geo, OS etc. The synthetic agents include a mechanism to pull synthetic session requests, drive Selenium scripts run against browsers instrumented to capture metrics as well as screenshots.

The team also manages the multi-tenant EUM Services (scalable data processor—think stream processing —and data analytics), built on Amazon Web Services components to process all the data captured by agents at huge scale and provide real time insights into customer applications.

The company is working on an AIOps platform to automate recommendation of actionable insights based on ML.

Some of your primary responsibilities include:

  • Design, develop, and optimize performance monitoring features for AppDynamics mobile agents/SDKs
  • Drive innovative end-to-end features (agent, cloud, ui/ux) to provide real time visibility, root cause analysis, anomaly detection, and user analytics for end user mobile applications
