About the team

First of all, at Dynatrace and our team in particular, me make the work on installation exciting[OJ1] ! We develop plenty of cool features: non-root mode for Linux, agent deployment via container, agent self-diagnostic mechanism. Even the maintenance workload is an opportunity to shine with your analytical thinking and refactoring skills - we often resolve issues by reworking what was previously implemented in a suboptimal way.

We work with various Linux distributions, Windows, and AIX, writing native code in C++, Shell script-based installer and   container image, and an MSI package. A fair part of Dynatrace relies on the components we provide, especially the Watchdog. Our team’s work is crucial for delivery of an exceptional ease-of-deployment experience to our customers, which is one of the major differentiators of our product. We have also released our own Docker image that has hit 10M+ downloads!

Our goal is to ensure an impeccable first-time experience for our users. After all, among all the features Dynatrace provides, the installer is used by each and every one.
