About Grafana Labs:

There are more than 700,000 active installations of Grafana around the globe, monitoring everything from beehives to climate change in the Alps. The instantly recognizable dashboards have been spotted everywhere from a SpaceX launch and Minecraft HQ to Wimbledon and the Tour de France. Grafana Labs also helps companies including Bloomberg, JPMorgan Chase, and eBay manage their observability strategies with full-stack offerings that can be run fully managed with Grafana Cloud, or self-managed with Grafana Enterprise Stack. The Grafana stack has grown to include two other open-source projects, Grafana Loki (for logs) and Grafana Tempo (for traces)

Our People Ops team is responsible for global recruitment and HR and our core goals for 2021 are to help the business meet its growth plans whilst maintaining our culture and ensuring that Grafana Labs is an awesome place to work. The People Ops Coordinator role will help resource the People Team as we continue to scale the organisation. As our People Ops Coordinator, you will be a dynamic and integral part of our team. You will provide administrative support to the People team covering both global recruitment and HR. 

This is not just any administration role. This is an opportunity to join an organisation in a high growth phase and we’re looking for an exceptional candidate. This role will be the face of Grafana to both prospective and new employees and we view this as a high impact position.

  • You will be process oriented and enjoy creating process and structure where there is none and be skilled at finding creative solutions to non-obvious problems

We believe that transparency breeds trust and that trust is the foundation of great teamwork.

This transparency extends to our strategy, our financials, our successes and failures. We empower our team to make their own decisions and trust that they will try to do the right thing.

We are a remote first team. Our three founders are on three different continents and our team of 400+ global employees are based in 40+ different countries. Hiring remotely unlocks the broadest, most diverse, most talented pool of potential employees. It also means that we have built our culture around a flexible and autonomous work environment based on trust.
