Developer Advocate - Prometheus

Developer Advocate - Prometheus

Timescale is looking for a Developer Advocate to engage with our users and the broader Prometheus community and help solve their observability and monitoring challenges.

A Developer Advocate is a developer’s best friend. We are engineers with experience building the kinds of systems we advocate for. We are leaders and earnest participants in the developer community. We care deeply about inclusion and providing a positive experience for all developers everywhere we go. At Timescale, we believe we should be contributors not only to Timescale’s products and services but also for related communities, such as Prometheus and Postgres. 

In this role, you’ll proactively reach out to the Timescale and Prometheus user communities, helping developers become successful with their observability and monitoring challenges. You’ll help users who use TimescaleDB as a long-term store for Prometheus to make sense of their metrics and observability data. You’ll collect feedback and share with the rest of the engineering team to help make our products better. You’ll also build amazing online content (articles, videos, blog posts, Twitch live streams) for Timescale as well as third-party developer sites and publications. You’ll build long-lasting relationships with community leaders around the world. If you love coding, big data, and community development, you’ll fit right at home here.

Oh, and Timescale is a developer-first company. There will never be confusion in this role about whether or not we’re a developer company. We are, and we embrace it. You’ll also work in an organization where even the marketing people write code. We love developers and you’ll fit right in if you love developers, too.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Proactively engage with the Timescale and Prometheus user communities, helping developers become successful.
  • Create content, videos, and samples from beginner to best practices that demonstrate how to develop and work with Timescale, Prometheus, and time-series data.
  • Secure content placement opportunities on popular developer blogs, sites, and other channels.
  • Identify external advocates and community leaders, and support them as they talk about Timescale and time-series data independent of us.
  • Synthesize and summarize customer feedback and relay it effectively to the product and engineering team.
  • Work closely with the marketing, sales, product teams and company leadership to quickly refine community efforts.
  • Contribute to related OSS projects within the Prometheus ecosystem.
  • Use data, experiments, and customer feedback to drive Timescale adoption in the community.

Experience and Skills:

  • Outstanding hustle and desire to learn and help others.
  • Excellent written communication skills.
  • A self-starter that can manage and prioritize initiatives that will make developers successful.
  • Previous experience with Prometheus, including as a user or developer, strongly desired.
  • Proven experience working with 3rd party communities, social media, and blogging strongly desired.
  • A deep understanding and appreciation for the constant and rapid shift in how and where people consume content and share their experiences. 
  • A passion for developers and nerd culture. 
  • A belief that organizations and industries are best when they are diverse and inclusive, and a commitment to ensuring that everything we do reflects that belief 
  • Works well independently and remotely
