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.

About the role

In Developer Relations, our goal is to help our technical user base to be successful with our platform.

You will also help to target and promote the content across appropriate developer channels.

You will help to co-ordinate the production of all the resources, identifying and filling the gaps in the existing Developer Experience. You will also be reviewing and editing others' work from both within the DevRel team and from the wider technical crowd at Aiven. By bringing the knowledge of the specialists to our highly technical user base, you will enable both colleagues and customers to do their best work.
