This job posting is open to all North America, not specifically NYC.
As a Developer Advocate for Lightbend, your job is to inspire and equip developers to convince the world to build streaming data applications. Stream data processing is about more than just extracting information faster. It’s about embracing wholesale change in how we build data-centric applications. As organizations wrestle with adopting streaming technology, they discover that streaming applications have the same requirements for availability, scalability, and resilience that microservices require. Conversely, successful organizations building microservices need to integrate intelligence gleaned from streams into their applications. At the same time, these organizations are adopting cloud-native architectures, like Kubernetes, to provide a foundation for integrating data and microservice systems. This means you are not only excited about data, but you also have a solid understanding of the big picture of streaming data systems and microservices working together, leveraging Lightbend’s unique ability to bridge these worlds.
Your core knowledge areas should center around the technologies that developers have to use to build next-generation streaming data applications. This includes the Lightbend open source projects (especially Akka Streams), Apache Kafka, Apache Spark, and Apache Flink. A solid basic understanding of Kubernetes as the underlying foundation is also necessary.
A Lightbend Developer Advocate should be a software development professional with professional experience in streaming data applications. Strong communication skills are also essential to serve in this role.
