Adopting SLO-based alerting on Glitch

We’re taking a break from our weekly round up of noteworthy apps to share a post written by Mads Hartmann, the Engineering Manager for our platform team. From time to time, we’ll post articles written by Glitch employees that give you a sneak peek into some of the behind-the-scenes work that goes into making Glitch go and grow.

Over the past year, Mads has written a multi-part series about observability at Glitch and the tools and processes we’ve implemented to make the site more reliable. The most recent post goes into a deep dive on SLO-based alerts - challenges with our previous on-caller system and an excerpt of our internal tech spec. There’s also a getting started guide that’s a good primer if you’re not familiar with SLOs or want to learn more about what goes into their implementation.

Read the full post here. And if you want to work alongside talented and thoughtful engineers like Mads, we’re hiring.
