We're looking for a Data Advocate to join our team to advocate on behalf of data engineers and analytics engineers. You’ll be responsible for building out our content strategy and empowering new and future users alike with relevant content, technical docs, tutorials, and other helpful educational resources. You’ll be responsible for engaging with data communities to help where you can, while also representing Shipyard at events. You'll partner with marketing to develop guides, blog posts, and other content that help accentuate the possibilities on our platform.

Since we are currently a small startup, you will be given the opportunity to make many of the decisions that affect the roadmap of our product.

This role is fully-remote in the US only.

  • You'll create content (blogs, videos, tutorials, etc.) to inspire and educate prospects and customers about the solution possibilities that can be built with Shipyard.
  • You'll help customers have the best possible experience with Shipyard through support, keeping you in sync with our customer's biggest problems.
