Who you are

  1. self-starting software engineer at heart. With 5-7 years of engineering or technical implementation experience working with SaaS software products, you know SQL and noSQL and the finer nuances of various databases that use both, how to modify Terraform and Docker scripts, how to manage Kubernetes pods, and are a general expert in cloud service management (AWS, GCP, Azure). 
  2. Empathetic to our customers and their needs. You’ve been in a customer-forward role for 1-3 years as a technical resource and are able to lead conversations with confidence. Customers demand a lot from a data privacy compliance product. We are here to first ensure that our customers are compliant with data protection laws. 
  3. An experienced integrator, having worked with infrastructure, net-sec-ops, devops teams, data/base engineering teams, and product engineering teams and knowing how and when to engage each.
  4. A relentless troubleshooter. No problem too tough, no issue too elusive; we are looking for someone who will tackle a customer deployment or implementation problem and work through it, rather than around it.
