    We are looking to hire someone who relishes designing and building systems and services that can manage large data sets (billions and beyond) with a high transaction volume that are scaling constantly to meet customer demand. The ideal person takes pride in building coherent and usable interfaces making it easy to use and operate on data. This role would allow you to take on on challenging problems, choose the right tools for the job and build elegant, scalable solutions. Your work as an experienced Java engineer will empower over 9,000 businesses around the world to provide great customer service, and will support the other senior engineers on your team. 


    We leverage Solr for several tools at Help Scout. Knowledge or even expertise in Solr is desired. However, as our data needs grow we look beyond search and towards Big Data solutions. We are seeking someone who can join the team and help us solve all kinds of data processing and analysis problems.

    About the role

    • You will be the fourth member of our search and data services team, collaborating on the next generation of our large-scale search and reporting service and associated infrastructure. On a daily basis, you'll work on adding new functionality, improving existing code, and API endpoints while maintaining focus on testing and documentation.
    • We currently index millions of search and report events every day and at peak hours our API handles tens of thousands of transactions a minute. You will play a key role in evolving our services to handle 10X that.
    • You will own some of our large, upcoming challenges and collaborate with your team on all of these: building a streaming data reports pipeline, reworking how we index data and retrieve data to scale while controlling infrastructure costs, and significantly improving our search relevancy and customer-facing reporting capabilities. 
    • Our engineering team is over 40 people, more than half the company. As part of the search and data team you will be involved in the decisions made regarding implementation, testing, and backlog prioritization. You will collaborate with the rest of the engineering team through code, reviews. You will participate in making architectural discussion.
    • We work in using iterative software approach, communicate mostly via Slack and are committed to remote, agile development. When you are ready, you’ll create and send a pull request with tests and tag your team for review - using video and screen-sharing as needed. Your development builds can be easily tested on environments that closely match production. You’ll work autonomously for the most part and we trust you to get work done when/where you can be productive.
    • Your team performs engineering support when a question can’t be answered by our in-house support team and passes triage. We’ll get you up-to-speed with engineering support so you can help our customers and improve the product along the way.
    • Everything is secondary to the customer experience. We expect you to have a keen sense of how your code will impact the experience in terms of performance, security and usability.
    • You'll be working with product people that challenge you to get better every day. The founders are technical and committed to creating a magical experience for customers. You'll deploy work that moves the needle for businesses around the world.
    • To ensure sufficient overlap with your teammates, we're looking for candidates that live in UTC+3 (Eastern Europe) and UTC-7 (as far as San Francisco) time zones.

  • Heroku / Salesforce (North America)

    Heroku is looking for a Developer Advocate with past experience in a developer-facing role, creating demos, writing blog posts, and building communities.

    Heroku’s Developer Advocacy team is small but scrappy and distributed around the U.S. We educate, inspire, and spark community among developers and also advocate internally for them.

    Do you consider yourself a software developer, but you are also excited about developer communities and helping other developers? If that sounds interesting to you, please read on.

    Heroku is looking for a Developer Advocate with past experience in a developer-facing role, creating demos, writing blog posts, and building communities. This role can be remote or you can work from a Salesforce office, but we would like you to be in a North American timezone. Also, this role will require 10-30% travel.


    > What is Heroku?

    Heroku’s mission is to create the fastest path for application developers to turn an idea into a production app of any scale. We want to remove every obstacle that slows down creative coders and let them focus on their customers’ experience while leaving everything else to our service. Today, Heroku powers over 7 million apps ranging from personal hobby apps to Internet top 100 apps. In aggregate, we serve more than 23 billion requests per day. Yet, it only takes minutes for a new developer to get the first app up and running, ready to serve customers.

    Heroku is one of the fastest growing businesses at Salesforce.

    Heroku’s Developer Advocacy team is small but scrappy and distributed around the U.S. We educate, inspire, and spark community among developers and also advocate internally for them. Sometimes this means working individually on some code or a demo or a conference talk. Other times, this means working closely with other Heroku teams like Product, Marketing, or Engineering.

    > Some Things You Might Work On

    • Interact (virtually and in-person) with developers

    • Write blog posts

    • Organize meetups

    • Create product demos

    • Record podcasts

    • Test new product features

    • Create conference talks

    • Attend events

    • Design and build a community program

    • Collect and share developer trends, desires, and feedback internally

    • Mentor other developers (writing and speaking)

    • Maybe most importantly, decide which of these are important and define how we work on them


    > Who you are


    CODE

    You're a developer first. As a coder, you can empathize with other developers, build credibility speaking to them, and even sit down with them in a debugging session.

    You have experience with at least one of Heroku’s supported languages: Node, Ruby, Java, PHP, Python, or Go and something else. Experience meaning not just an understanding of the syntax but also the community. That “something else” could be data, Apache Kafka, API design, web performance, mobile development, continuous delivery, microservices, distributed systems design/architecture, AI/ML, etc. Share what you're excited about with us.

    But you aren't satisfied calling yourself just a developer.

    COMMUNITY

    You also like engaging deeply with developer communities. Even better, you've helped build or grow a developer community. This means you've participated in or helped to organize meetups, conferences, or hackathons. Or it could mean that you've been an integral member of a popular open source project, or you've otherwise participated in a community in a meaningful way virtually. Ideally, more than one of these things.

    CONTENT

    Content is how the Developer Advocate communicates their ideas and the meaning behind their code. Whether it's writing a technical blog post, scripting out an engaging demo, crafting a clear GitHub repo README, speaking in a podcast, or presenting an idea or project in a conference talk, content allows us to share our message with and hear feedback from a larger audience.

    You should relish the thought of composing clean, clear prose almost as much as you do writing concise, elegant code and not be averse to speaking in front of a group of your peers.


    Other Desirable Characteristics or Background

    • Infectious energy

    • Excited about Heroku’s desire to provide simple, intuitive tools to developers

    • Experience at a company with a developer-focused product

    • Comfortable (as much as one can be) with public speaking

    • Comfortable speaking with customers
