Deephaven Data Labs provides a next-generation data analytics platform, currently used primarily in the financial markets.  We are a team of world-class software engineers and data scientists.  As part of an effort to increase our client base, Deephaven will be open-sourcing a few key parts of our system. 

Job Description

Our Developer Relations Engineers will be primarily responsible for building and growing both an online and offline community for our OSS product.  This includes:

  • Community management
  • Content
  • Documentation

This is a very large scope of responsibilities that ranges from software engineering to blogging.  One day you may be developing code to use Deephaven to ingest real-time data from a drone, and the next day you may be creating a vlog showing new users how to deploy Deephaven on a GCP Kubernetes cluster.  The exact nature of the work on any given day will vary based upon what is necessary to build and grow the community.

Our Developer Relations Engineers must be first and foremost legit engineers.  Our end-user engineers and data scientists only trust other engineers and data scientists.  We must earn the trust of the community.  Additionally, clear communication, prolific work, good listening skills, responsiveness, and creativity are required.
