Percona is joining forces with the Linux Foundation in support of the Valkey project to offer a true open-source Redis alternative.

This is a technical role, primarily focusing on the technical aspects of Redis/Valkey knowledge and thought leadership: creating public and customer-facing technical content and knowledge sharing - for both Percona customers and the wider community.

This role also works closely with our Global Services teams, acting as an escalation point for complex Redis/Valkey-related support tickets and other technical requests. Participation in Percona’s Valkey software product direction is also an essential part of the role, with the Technical Lead enabled to influence and guide Percona’s product strategy with the Engineering team.
