The Percona Support Team...
Percona Support is a global, elite team of engineers who love getting to the bottom of weird and interesting database behaviour. We understand our customers' business needs and the nuances of their technical environments. This allows us to help our customers see the big picture and identify opportunities to improve their overall database infrastructures.
What you'll be doing...
You'll be teaming with some of the most well-known database experts in the industry who are even better teammates, friends and mentors. You'll have the opportunity to develop your own skills and become more powerful than you can possibly imagine.... with databases.
This is not a boring, entry-level role where you'll just be triaging the boring and monotonous.
Your main responsibility will be helping our customers' DBA teams when they need expert assistance. You'll do that by gathering relevant data and investigating issues to provide a detailed analysis of your findings in a digestible format by email, instant message or voice. For more serious and production-impacting issues, you'll perform screen-sharing sessions to help them quickly navigate and resolve issues.
When you're not fixing things, you'll be authoring new blog posts on interesting topics for our open-source community to digest, answering questions on our forum, creating new articles in our customer-facing knowledge base for more frequently seen issues, and hosting webinars amongst other things.
This is a remote role, so you can be located anywhere in the world. All you need is a decent, stable internet connection.

• Good hands-on knowledge of PostgreSQL, PostgreSQL Provided tools and Contribution modules
• Be a skilled with some of the PostgreSQL ecosystem of tools and technologies

• Availability to travel for the occasional team meeting, conference or customer visit
• Experience working with customers in English
• Very desirable to have related Kubernetes knowledge

What Will Make you Stand Out:
• MySQL knowledge

• OpenSource Community contributions (could be a blog)
• Good practice with working over screen-sharing/phone

    Never pay down a deposit in a bank account until you have met the seller, seen signed a purchase agreement. No serious private advertisers ask for a down payment before you meet. Receiving an email with an in-scanned ID does not mean that you have identified the sender. You do this on the spot, when you sign a purchase agreement.
