You’re at the end of your master studies? You’re excited about cutting-edge technologies and you want to gain first professional work experiences in software development?
We are looking for motivated students who want to join our Dynatrace crew in a permanent part-time employment and write their master thesis with us. 

You will be part of our development teams and work on meaningful and challenging tasks – in line with your master thesis topic. Be part of our crew and shape the next generation of Dynatrace together with us. One of our Senior Developers will be right by your side as your mentor.  

Available topics:

  • Metric Registry Documentation Generator: Dynatrace metrics are either built-in (hardwired in code) or dynamically created (custom metrics). Scan source code and dynamic metric configurations, and generate documentation in different flavours (either adding to existing Swagger REST-API documentation, or standalone). Applied technologies: Java, JavaScript, HTML
  • ELF Parser: The Dynatrace agent is a native library, restricted in its size. An ELF (Executable and Linkable Format) Parser should scan the agent library and symbol file, and analyse which parts contribute most to file size (machine code blocks – e.g. inlined methods, data sections, etc). Applied technologies: C++
  • AI-based Problem Filtering in Large Scale Systems: The number of problems detected in large scale application monitoring may exceed the operator’s attention capacity. In this thesis it should be investigated how effective unsupervised learning can be employed to represent the problem feed in a more concise way. Applied technologies: Python, Java
  • Next Generation Dynatrace Performance Regression Testing: With previous work we put a system in place which periodically executes performance regression tests against the latest version of our software. The goal of this thesis is to extend this work and roll out the approach to other components of the system, e.g. Apache Cassandra. We also want to discover new ways to visualize results, going beyond simple charts. Applied technologies: Java, JavaScript, HTML/CSS
  • 3D data visualisation (Team Mixed Reality Development): The smartscape is an existing visualisation which provides an overview over complex infrastructures. This visualisation will be newly created from scratch to target much more complex use cases. Be part of a development team to implement a 3D visualisation with angular and threejs for the next generation of multi dimensional visualisations. Applied technologies: Angular, Threejs, Typescript
