  • Manage the Liquibase Community website and forum
  • Respond to Liquibase questions and comments in a timely manner
  • Coordinate with the founder of Liquibase, Marketing, PR and Communications teams
  • Liaise with Development and Sales departments
  • Stay up-to-date with DevOps, Cloud and Application Development technology trends

What we’re looking for:

  • Strong technical background, software development or DevOps background is a plus
  • Proven work experience as an open source project community manager or developer advocate
  • Passionate about open source and the developer community
  • Experience creating engaging content for all platforms, including blog pieces, articles, social media posts, newsletters, and videos
  • Experience launching community initiatives (e.g. building an online forum, launching an ambassador program, creating an event series and writing an email newsletter)
  • Ability to identify and track relevant community metrics (e.g. repeat attendance at events)
  • Experience with LinkedIn, Twitter, Reddit and Stack Overflow is essential
  • Superb time management skills
  • Excellent verbal communication skills

Required Education:

  • Bachelors Degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, or related technical degree is an advantage
  • 3+ years experience in a similar role for open source projects, preferably working with developers and DevOps audiences

  • Work on cutting edge technology
  • Get an inside look into how some of the world’s largest brands and companies manage their software teams and releases
  • A transparent and collaborative team environment that values multiple perspectives and fresh thinking
  • No punks, No jerks

An Insider's view of Datical

What's something quirky about your company?

- Hanging in our main hallway there are caricatures of each employee, a light-hearted and funny roll-call of us all.
- We have Friday Lunches where we gather and enjoy a lunch provided by Datical. The free lunch is nice, but the thing I like most is how it has an almost family holiday meal feel to it, on a weekly basis, making us feel connected.

What projects are you most excited about?

The launch of our newest product, Liquibase Pro, is very exciting. We have millions of fans of our existing opensource technology called Liquibase. The ability to engage and convert them to Liquibase Pro customers has the entire company jazzed.


Director of Inside Sales

What makes someone successful on your team?

Successful members of our Engineering team laugh under pressure. Laughter and fearlessness are essential to survive. The engineers that thrive, though, are those with the confidence to question, the willingness to compromise and the strength to stand fast if that is what is best for end users.

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I have always felt that the people at Datical are friendly and easy-going. However, never underestimate our mentality of “get it done and do it right.” We encourage transparency, compassion and bright ideas in a fast-paced, yet warm environment. We aren’t the types to simply lounge on bean bag chairs and drink cold brew all day.
