  • Maintaining a subset of competitive analysis in the observability segment
  • Attending trade shows and other events to help showcase our products
  • Some travel is required

What You Will Bring:

  • Direct experience with logging, infrastructure monitoring, APM and related use cases, and associated target audiences (monitoring, DevOps, observability teams, SREs, etc)
  • Curiosity about the “how” of technology to tell compelling stories about the “why”
  • Relevant work experience in a technical field (e.g. CS, CSE, EE)
  • Proven track record to craft engaging content, including blog posts, presentations, videos, etc.
  • Strong communication skills, with experience making pitches to audiences big and small
  • Comfort working in a very cross-functional role, with a highly distributed team
