When you’re not fixing things, you’ll be authoring new blog posts on interesting topics for our open-source community to digest, answering questions on our forum, creating new articles in our customer facing knowledge base for more frequently seen issues, and hosting webinars amongst other things.

This is a remote role, so you can be located anywhere in the world. All you need is a decent, stable internet connection.

What does it take to be a Percona superhero?

  • Excellent knowledge of both RDBMSs and MongoDB, including:

  • All aspects of configuration and best practices

  • Enthused to expand your skill set with new technologies as the industry continues to evolve

  • Availability to travel for the occasional team meeting, conference and customer visits       

  • Experience working with customers in English     

  • Completed MongoDB University courses

It's cool if you also have experience with:

  • Percona Backup for MongoDB

  • Configuration management solutions such as Ansible, Puppet or Chef
