About ReadySet

At ReadySet, we’re building a distributed SQL cache that precomputes the results of prepared statements (i.e. parameterized SQL queries) and incrementally updates these results over time as the underlying data in your database changes.

ReadySet is wire-compatible with MySQL and Postgres, so it can be integrated with your existing application without code or database changes– ReadySet makes it easy for developers to build performant web, analytical, and internal applications regardless of whether they’re deployed to a single region or around the world. 

We’re looking for people who are excited about exploring and productionizing the frontier of distributed systems and DB research to join our international, fully-remote team. You’d be a great fit at ReadySet if you're excited to build data infrastructure that makes modern read-heavy applications faster, simpler, and easier to deploy.


About this role

We’re looking for a developer advocate to join the team. In this role, you'll attract and engage developers and help them get maximal value from using ReadySet. 

You'll serve as a subject matter expert on ReadySet in conversations with our users, create useful content about both ReadySet’s product and the space at large, and act as ReadySet’s ambassador at developer-focused events. Internally, you’ll influence the product roadmap and sales process by using your learnings from user conversations.

In a regular week, you’ll create blog posts, tutorials, and presentations that will help developers better understand ReadySet’s use cases and how they could apply ReadySet to their own projects. You’ll share the content you’ve created in target developer communities, answer questions that people may have, and help spread the word about ReadySet. You will be a key leader in engaging our audience and bootstrapping ReadySet’s community, and we’ll count on you to help advocate for developers during product discussions and sales strategy conversations.

In order to further develop the ReadySet community, you’ll also organize and attend developer-centric events. This will include coordinating hackathons, workshops, and meetups; and speaking on behalf of ReadySet at conferences or trade shows.  


You may be a good fit if you have...

- 2+ years experience in systems programming (Rust preferred, but Go, C, C++...etc are good as well)
- 2+ years experience in web and/or mobile development
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills with experience creating content that targets a technical audience (e.g. blog posts, streams, tutorials, documentation, etc)
- Ability to manage multiple ongoing projects at once
- Experience or interest in working in an early-stage startup environment
- A degree in Computer Science or a related field, or similar work experience
