The Opportunity

Many people have the impression that Real-Time Data is hard - Tinybird is here to change that. 

To do that, we need your help! We are looking for a Developer Advocate who has been around the block in the data world. You’ll be joining a brand new team, where you can have a significant impact helping us shape the future of real-time data.

How will you help us achieve that goal? Well, we have some ideas, but we also want to find opinionated folk that will bring new ideas and challenge our assumptions. Here’s a few things we are working on right now, so you get an idea of what it looks like today:

  • We are writing technical content about real time analytics, data architecture and the open source tools that underpin our products, here’s an example https://www.tinybird.co/blog-posts/what-is-realtime-analytics. You can help us by writing about your knowledge and experience in the data world, appealing to all levels, from beginners to experts, from VPs to Developers.
  • We are beginning to engage with various communities in the data world as well as building our own. You can help us by finding new communities, engaging with members, and discovering how we can best represent Tinybird in those communities.
  • We are hosting webinars, live coding sessions, attending events and giving talks. You can help us to increase our presence, find fun new things to talk about, as well venture into new things like attending & hosting meetups.

Responsibilities 

  • Design & build cool applications that showcase the power of Tinybird
  • Help us tell the world about Tinybird, whatever your platform of choice is 
  • Listen to, and engage with, our customers, community & market
  • Stay at the leading-edge of the data ecosystem
  • Being the voice of developers inside the company and into our community

What you bring 

  • Strong understanding of the data ecosystem & market
  • SQL skills, we don’t need a PhD, just enough to be dangerous
  • For technologies & languages, flexibility is key, we’d prefer you were productive in many rather than an expert in one, we’d like to see familiarity with a range of languages, cloud services, data tooling, etc.
  • You’ll need to love communicating & engaging with people; you’ll have all the opportunities you want to get out there and mingle
  • Some understanding of doing frontend bits is a plus, but we’re looking for a dedicated frontend engineer who can really make things shine (we’re open to recommendations!)

Some bits about the way we work

  • We are a remote-first company; always have been, always will be.
  • We are just starting up so your work will impact everything we do. We also believe in full transparency, and you will always know what is going on.
  • No politics.

Here are our company principles.

Benefits we provide:

  • A competitive compensation package based on knowledge and experience, including Stock Options
  • Holidays. We will not count the days you take but we at least grant you 22 days of holidays per year. Plus, your birthday off and public holidays, but... who’s counting?
  • Work remotely. Freedom to work from wherever suits you best. For this role, we’re ideally looking for candidates in the United States and Western European time zones.
  • Flexible office hours. At Tinybird we do not have fixed office hours. You manage your own time.
  • Equipment of your choice. You get to choose. The maximum budget for it is $2,600. 
  • Paid travel. Whenever this is needed and agreed between the two parties. 
  • Great healthcare benefits (US employees): Medical, Dental, and Vision plus a 401K plan.
