Database Engineer - MySQL
Percona  
mysql linux cloud aws azure Oct 15
Who is Percona?
Percona is an industry leader in providing elite services, training and software for MySQL®, MariaDB®, MongoDB®, PostgreSQL® and other open source databases in on-premises and cloud environments. Our services and software accommodate rapid growth and application development, help companies develop and deploy agile solutions and improve your ability to keep up with customer needs.

The Percona Support Team…
Percona Support is a global, elite team of engineers who love getting to the bottom of weird and interesting database behaviour. We understand our customers’ business needs and the nuances of their technical environments. This allows us to help our customers see the big picture and identify opportunities to improve their overall database infrastructures. 

What you’ll be doing…
You’ll be teaming with some of the most well known database experts in the industry who are even better teammates, friends and mentors. You’ll have the opportunity to develop your own skills and become more powerful than you can possibly imagine…. with databases.
This is not a boring, entry-level role where you’ll just be triaging the boring and monotonous.
Your main responsibility will be helping our customers’ DBA teams when they need expert assistance.  You’ll do that by gathering relevant data and investigating issues to provide a detailed analysis of your findings in a digestible format by email, instant message or voice. For more serious and production impacting issues, you’ll perform screen sharing sessions to help them quickly navigate and resolve issues.
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.

Percona  
golang mongodb mysql postgresql backend Oct 14
Percona is a respected thought leader in the open-source community. We provide services and software for MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL and MariaDB to open source users globally.

Percona is remote-first and globally dispersed; we have 250 people in almost 40 countries. We offer a collaborative, highly-engaged culture where your ideas are welcome and your voice is heard. The growth and development of our staff is a top priority; we provide funding for training, certifications, conferences and more. 

Discover what it means to work with some of the smartest people in the industry, who also know how to have fun and are always willing to lend a helping hand. We offer flexible hours, the ability to work remotely and the amazing experience of working with a multinational team of experts.

We’re looking for a full-time remote developer to join our team and help to bring Open Source databases to Kubernetes. Ideally, we would love to find a Golang Software Engineer who has in-depth knowledge of both distributed databases and Kubernetes but will consider an experienced programmer who has good knowledge in either area.

The work is challenging, but that’s why it’s also fun and rewarding!  Plus, our team is small, so you and your work will significantly impact the Kubernetes ecosystem. This is a rare opportunity to work from home in a great team, on a 100% open source project!

This position is back-end development.  You should find these keywords familiar and very appealing: Kubernetes, infrastructure orchestration, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, MySQL, database clustering, database high-availability, containers

What You Will Do

  • Key contributor in building and implementing the Kubernetes Operators for relational and NoSQL databases
  • Architect technical design of new features and improvements
  • Collaborate with engineers and teams across the company to helping in the deployment and debugging of Kubernetes Operator to facilitate rapid integration and massive growth
  • Participate in technical articles writing, blogging, conference speaking engagements

Your Experience

  • 3+ years of commercial experience with Golang
  • Understanding of how to build distributed clusters for (at least one) MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB
  • Strong Kubernetes experience
  • Team player first
  • Strong desire to do QA work
  • Success working in a distributed environment where e-mail, instant messaging and voice calls are the only interactions with others on a daily basis
  • ability to communicate effectively in English (speaking and writing)

What Will Make You Stand Out

  • In-depth knowledge of distributed databases
  • Open-source contributor of any database operator, Kubernetes, Golang
  • Experienced conference speaker, technical blog writer, known community person

manager product manager senior mongodb mysql postgresql Oct 11
The Senior Outbound Product Manager for MongoDB will be our lead in defining the future of our Percona MongoDB products and solutions and is ultimately responsible for their success. As the voice of the customer, they will need to understand the market, customer challenges and then be able to clearly articulate market and customer requirements back into the product requirements and roadmap. They are responsible for creating the product vision, overall go-to-market (GTM) strategy and then working across the Percona team to successfully deliver.

This is a remote position that can be based in the Americas or EMEA region.

About Percona
Percona is a respected thought leader in the open source community. We provide services and software for MySQL, MongoDB, PostgreSQL and MariaDB to open source users globally.

Percona is remote-first and globally dispersed; we have 250 people in almost 40 countries. We offer a collaborative, highly-engaged culture where your ideas are welcome and your voice is heard. The growth and development of our staff is a top priority; we provide funding for training, certifications, conferences and more. 

Discover what it means to work with some of the smartest people in the industry, who also know how to have fun and are always willing to lend a helping hand. We offer flexible hours, the ability to work remotely and the amazing experience of working with a multinational team of experts.

What You Will Do

  • Own the product vision and delivery of the overall GTM strategy and long term product roadmap that satisfies the customer challenges/requirements and changing market dynamics/technologies while uniquely positioning Percona for success
  • Define market opportunity for our MongoDB product and solution areas.  This includes targeting/segmentation of opportunities as well as markets and collaboration with Product Marketing Managers to analyze new markets
  • Be the voice of the customer and help provide context, empathy and rationale behind customer needs. Less "customer wants a feature", more "they want to solve a problem that helps with ..."
  • Work with the Product Owner, Engineering, Sales and Services counterparts to facilitate well rounded decision making with a bias for action and calculated risks
  • Work with Customer Success, Sales, and Marketing to facilitate rapid time to value for our customers and prospects
  • Work closely with Inbound Product Management to balance your product's long-term roadmap with its backlog of issues and bugs as well as ad-hoc customer requests
  • Deliver crisp customer use cases/requirements to Inbound Product Management & Engineering
  • Have a solid understanding of the enterprise sales motion including how you and your product can best support key players such as Sales Engineers, Consulting, Services, and enterprise Account Executives
  • Make data-informed decisions. Know how you're measuring success before starting any project; obsess over your KPIs; know when to commit more or less resources
  • Effectively communicate across all departments in the company
  • Prepare competitive comparison information for use in positioning against offerings from other organizations (working with Product Marketing Manager)
  • Open source community engagement and support as needed
  • Briefing and building relationships with key members of the media and analyst communities
  • Speaking engagements and other Percona representation as needed at leading industry conferences

Your Experience

  • 5+ years of Product Management experience with enterprise IT software 
  • Ability to demonstrate a good understanding of customers’ business challenges and needs
  • Experience developing the product vision, strategy and roadmap
  • Go-to-market experience
  • Self-motivated and self-managed

  • Excellent work ethic, strong organizational skills & ability to meet deadlines
  • Willing to travel occasionally on business throughout EMEA and the US as safety permits
  • Language skills: English fluently, additional languages appreciated
  • Superior verbal, written, and presentation skills, including public speaking skills
  • Experience in working with inter-departmental stakeholders to successfully develop and deliver software products and solutions
  • Ability to lead without authority breaking down barriers between product areas and functions
