Developer Relations Engineer
Join our team as a DevRel Engineer and improve the lives of thousands of developers using our product. Have you ever attempted to use a piece of software only to become frustrated because of missing documentation, bad examples, unintuitive UX/DX? This is your chance to help Platform.sh make sure that no developer ever has that experience with our software.
You’ll be on a small autonomous team that focuses entirely on making developers passionate about our product. You’ll be exposed to a wide variety of software running on multiple stacks, and will get to tinker with all the new shiny things that come along. You’ll then translate your learnings into templates, learning and training materials, web casts, and conference talks to make sure that the largest number of developers benefit from your wisdom. You’ll help us make Platform.sh better by gathering feedback and best-practices from our users, for whom you will be a fierce advocate.
This is a remote job. Work from anywhere as long as you are based in EMEA or Americas time zones!
We are a worldwide distributed team and are looking for a candidate who can perform well working remotely. To be an effective performer here at Platform.sh, you’ll need to be able to effectively collaborate across time zones while operating with a high level of independence and autonomy.
Platform.sh is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
- Prepare and give product demos, online and at conferences (estimated traveling on this position is less than 20% of working time)
- Host web casts and webinars
- Run training workshops, online and at conferences
- General problem solving and technical tinkering
The ideal candidate also has:
- experience with React, Vue.js, and/or Angular
- Strong Linux web server skills (eg. configure Nginx)
- Experience with hosting Node.js applications in production environments
- a secret crush on Rust (we don’t do any Rust, but some of us would really love to do everything in Rust)
You should have a good level of networking and system knowledge. Specifically, you have at least a good basic understanding of containers and you have an excellent understanding of HTTP (please don’t submit your CV if you can’t tell a 301 from a 404, and we do expect you to at least know about TLS).
And obviously, you have excellent knowledge of Git: you rebase like a god and you do not lose consciousness when you hear “bisect”.
You should have a good grasp of relational databases (Postgres / MySQL), caches (Redis), Search-Engines (Elastic Search, but if you “only" have some Solr chops, we won’t complain), Message Queues (any really, but we provide RabbitMQ and Kafka) and how they fit into an architecture.
You should have a good understanding of deployment workflows and some of the DevOps tooling (stuff like Puppet and Chef, anything from Hashicorp).
Please show us your published technical articles or presentations you are proud of!
Extra points for those with extensive experience giving presentations or training, eg. at conferences.
