Posted May 20

Aiven is a well-funded, fast-growing DBaaS company. With a recent valuation of 2B, we have become one of the tech world’s most recent unicorns. We offer the best of open-source databases, on multiple cloud platforms, with all-in pricing.

We love to operate our favorite tools at scale and empower our customers to do great work. Aiven is a very technical company with open source at our core. We publish open-source projects and actively support (with payment) our employees who want to participate in open-source projects beyond their daily work.

This is a 100% remote opportunity and we are hiring for this position on the East Coast of the USA.

About the role

This role is all about empowering and enabling developers everywhere to take advantage of the best open source database technologies, especially on the Aiven platform. You will be creating documentation, blog content and video content to make sure that customers and colleagues alike have the information they need to succeed. You will create examples and demos so that other engineers can quickly pick up the skills too.

You will be preparing and delivering content for industry events, meetups, and our own webinars. Travel is optional in this role; we encourage you to travel if you’d like to, or to contribute in other ways that suit your lifestyle/talents if not.

Your role needs you to engage with both internal and external communities. We expect you to collaborate on content, open source and open standards projects, and to find other opportunities to inform and educate developers.

  • You have some experience creating content for a technical audience, such as a blog post or a meetup talk.
  • You’re already a GitHub user, and you’re comfortable with one or more programming languages (Python, Go and Java are ideal, but we’re open-minded).
  • You are either already a DevRel professional, or you are excited about helping more people be successful with the best open source technologies around.
  • You are proactive, well organized, and enjoy collaborating with others as a reviewer, listener, creator and cheerleader.
