AppDynamics provides an outstanding monitoring solution that helps DevOps and on-call engineers to resolve issues in their production applications in a minimal time. Our unique product collects metrics, events, logs, and traces by instrumenting any component within the customer deployment.

As the product line evolves to a distributed microservices-based architecture, we need strong senior leaders with hands-on experience with driving automation and understand what customers need.
