Full Time
Meroxa's mission is to make real-time data architectures more approachable to all developers. Today, building real-time data infrastructure means choosing between taking 6+ months to integrate a commercial product, 6+ months with your most skilled engineers' time to cobble together open source projects, or hiring a specialized team of experts at $200k+ per person to build and maintain your systems. We believe everyone regardless of expertise, company size, or available resources should be able to leverage real-time data infrastructure in minutes not months.

We're looking for a talented and experienced candidate to build our sales organization.
