Quansight is looking for an Open Source Software Developer Advocate to join our collaborative, fully distributed team of data experts. Do you love to learn new technologies and tell others about it? Are you passionate about keeping up with the latest in data engineering and data science? Do you love how open source communities continue to change the face of software development? Do you enjoy writing for social media, blogs, newsletters? If the answer is “Yes!,” you might be a great fit for this role.

Establish and maintain relationships with community members and partners.
Inform our broader marketing efforts relative to your domain expertise around the tenor, sentiment, and interests of the community.
Represent the company at conferences and meetups virtually (and in-person across the globe, when it's safe) to connect with our community, meet our users, and host fun, engaging events.
Collaborate with marketing to support challenges, campaigns, and activities to increase community activity and engagement.
Partner with content marketing in the creation of engaging text, video, and photo content for use in marketing materials.
Create product marketing collateral and technical blogs.
Capture and share product feedback and insights from the community to the product team.
You are the voice of Quansight to our many target audiences.
Excellent communication skills, as evidenced by experience giving talks, demos, and webinars.
Ability to translate complex technical concepts into simple and intuitive communications.
Software developer experience with subject matter expertise in data sciences and/or data engineering.
Developers trust your work. You deeply understand what resonates with developers.
Open source community experience including making contributions and an understanding of community organization and management.
Experienced at managing all aspects of participation in industry events.

Why You Should Join
You’ll become an essential part of a small, collaborative, fully distributed engineering team. We strive to provide a working environment that gives you room to learn and grow.
Quansight draws from experience in many large open source communities over the years. Because these communities operate remotely and strive to be as inclusive and participatory as possible, they must also strive to be more transparent and systematic in communicating, sharing information, and working. We are building a culture at Quansight that follows these principles and builds upon them.
We offer flexibility in work times and locations, and vacation time is not just encouraged but celebrated and enforced.
We offer competitive compensation and a comprehensive benefits package, including medical, vision, dental, 401K, a comprehensive sick policy, and flexible paid time off.
Where applicable, if you are located outside of the United States, we will work with you to get similar benefits according to your geographical context.

Where We Can Hire
Our engineering team is entirely remote. We are headquartered in Austin, Texas, and the majority of our team is U.S. based. We also have a significant presence in Europe, South America, and Asia. We will consider applicants anywhere (overlap with U.S. and Europe time zones is preferred).
