The Opportunity

The Director, Developer Relations at MariaDB is the lead evangelist to our application developer community. This hands-on role requires an individual who can speak the language of modern application developers and intimately understands both relational and non-relational database technology.

Leading the outreach via digital platforms (e.g., webinars, online demos, YouTube, and social) and in-person events (e.g., meetups, keynotes and presentations), this subject matter expert creates exciting technical demos and content around key concepts that capture developers’ hearts and minds.

Understanding of development environments and DevOps best practices is essential to help developers be more productive and successful with MariaDB. Prior hands-on experience as a developer evangelist, MariaDB/database/full stack developer, or coding hero is essential.
