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 behavior. 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 have the opportunity to develop your own skills and become more powerful than you can possibly imagine…. You will be able to explore not only the database universe, but also Linux (and its various flavors), AWS, Azure, Kubernetes, Docker and if the adventure is not enough, explore the database source codes and who knows, even suggesting bug fixes!

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 like participating in conferences and meetups promoting Percona to the open source community.

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

  •  Excellent knowledge of both RDBMS's (MySQL or Postgres) and MongoDB, including: 
  • All aspects of configuration and best practices
  • Schema design, performance tuning, query optimization, & index tuning
  • Backup solutions (Physical and Logical).Replica set (elections, read/write concerns, arbiters)

  • Engine selection and usage

  • Demonstrable experience of administering Linux based systems
  • Hands on experience of MySQL (minimum 2+ years)
  • Knowledge about virtualized environments such as VMWare, Docker and/or Kubernetes
  • Knowledge about cloud providers (AWS, Google Cloud, Digital Ocean and/or Azure)
  • Ability to troubleshoot methodically, identifying and applying fixes for known errors, and when necessary, capacity to think outside of the box to resolve complex issues
  • 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 visit as safety permits
  • Experience working with customers in English (write, reading, listening)
  • Completed MongoDB University courses

It's cool if you also have experience with:

  • Percona Backup for MongoDB
  • Experience with MongoDB Atlas
  • Postgres DBA troubleshooting (basic level or higher)
  • Percona Monitoring & Management (PMM) and other monitoring tools
  • Configuration management solutions such as Ansible, Puppet or Chef
  • Percona Toolkit suite
  • Writing Python and golang is preferred
  • Reading C/C++ code

Technical Documentation Editor
Percona  
html css linux docker mongodb mysql Feb 19
Are you an advocate for the technical user? Do you recognize that not everyone has the same depth of knowledge so technical documentation should cater to all levels? If you’re able to talk about the chaotic documentation you’ve tamed in the past, from the high-level “big changes” down to the “subtle tweaks", we want to hear from you. This is a technical role so be prepared to get hands on - you don’t need to be a database expert, but if you are, even better!

Percona creates some of the most amazing database software available and ensures that it is made freely available to all who desire enterprise class functionality without the enterprise costs. As databases and database-related software can sometimes be complicated, we need world-class documentation to enable our users to get the most from our products. 

As the Technical Documentation Editor, you will help unify the style and voice of our technical writers and be a champion for our users. Our goal is to ensure we have the appropriate documentation to allow users to install and use our software to its fullest potential. 

While you won’t necessarily create the content, you will identify gaps, work with technical writers to fill those gaps and ensure that we have a consistent voice and style across our many products. We want to be known for great documentation to compliment the software itself and you will have the opportunity to elevate us to that level.

What You Will Do

  • Use your creativity in communicating complex topics in approachable, engaging, technically accurate, and consistent ways
  • Work collaboratively with technical writers to hone their skills throughout the editorial process but not be a bottleneck
  • Strike a balance between creating our own content vs referencing others but in as consistent a manner as possible across the product suite
  • Work with our marketing team to ensure we are using appropriate tools to power our documentation that consider contributions from several writers, content searchability, SEO
  • Create and own our technical documentation style guide
  • Own the backlog for what is still needed and work with technical writers to ensure proper prioritization in closing the gaps while still keeping pace with existing development
  • Work with text markup such as Markdown, Restructured Text, HTML, or XML using various GUI tools and text editors

Your Experience

  • 3+ years of experience as a developmental and line editor of technical documentation
  • You have managed multiple versions of documentation for multiple projects using a version control system (Git)
  • Knowledge of technical concepts in the open source space, preferably MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Linux , etc.
  • Excellent written and verbal English
  • Outstanding attention to detail
  • Ability to work with others as well as independently in a fully remote environment across many time zones (GMT-6 through GMT+2)
  • Undergraduate or postgraduate degree in English, Instructional Design, Computer Science, or related studies, or equivalent experience

What Will Make You Stand Out

  • Deep Unix/Linux experience
  • Experience with web programming languages such as CSS / HTML / JavaScript
  • Experience with Docker and Kubernetes
  • Native English speaker

Flexibility, adaptability and a sense of humor are also highly valued here. If you have the required background, we'd love to hear from you.

  • Ensure learning and performance objectives are appropriate to the audience and that educational materials meet learning and performance objectives
  • Leverage rapid, agile development techniques and project management tools to manage multiple, concurrent content development projects for a dynamic environment
  • Develop partnerships with internal teams, especially our product, marketing, service delivery, sales, and customer success teams

Your Experience

  • You’ve developed technical courseware for multiple types of learners across geographies, leveraging your understanding of instructional design techniques and adult learning theory
  • You’ve transformed dry technical topics into engaging, informative and interesting learning content
  • You’ve driven your own exploration and education on new technologies and programming languages
  • You’ve developed a strong, diverse technical background, and grow adept at quickly learning complex technical concepts and distilling them into simple and digestible terms
  • You’ve successfully partnered with cross-functional teams, stakeholders and SMEs to design learning objectives and develop learning content
  • You have a proven record of working successfully as part of a remote, globally-distributed team

Qualifications

  • Excellent grasp of the English language, both written and verbal
  • Technical Bachelor’s degree (e.g. Computer Science) or equivalent technical work experience required
  • 2+ years of hands-on experience developing end-customer focused technical courseware, and building and maintaining lab environments
