Thousands of developers are using the Prisma tools to build applications and we want to help making them successful. That's why we're looking for a Developer Success Engineer to join our growing team.

What does a Developer Success Engineer do?

As a Developer Success Engineer, your main goal is to ensure developers can reach their goals by using Prisma, focusing, especially, on providing community support on the Prisma Slack, on GitHub, Stackoverflow and other channels where developers ask questions about Prisma.

As we are building out a commercial offering in addition to the open-source tools, you will become part of the professional support team that supports users of the commercial tools.

Who are we looking for?

To be successful in this role, you should have a passion for community and helping and educating other developers.

You should be the kind of person that thrives and gets energized when they can help developers solve a problem, and have experience in building applications in the Node.js and JavaScript ecosystem.

Note that this role can be a great entry-point to transition into a product or engineering role later during your time at Prisma!

What is it like to work at Prisma?

You're likely to be a great fit for the team if you ...

  • ... have an ownership mindset. As part of a small team, you'll have an outsize impact on decisions and the way things are executed.
  • ... think crossfunctionally. Your work will give you insight valuable to all parts of the company. Share your ideas and your learnings!
  • ... stay nimble. As a growing startup, the team and strategy evolves quickly. Be ready to re-calibrate often and stay flexible.
  • ... be kind and collaborative. Come in ready to share your ideas and listen to feedback. We rely on each others' input to create great final results.


  • Development experience with JavaScript and Node.js
  • Experience working with databases (eg. Postgres, MySQL, MongoDB)
  • Excellent communicator (writing and speaking)
  • Excitement for educating and helping developers
  • A collaborative and feedback driven mindset
  • Interest in working in a small fast-moving company


The main goal developers have when using Prisma is to build applications. Therefore, any additional knowledge and experience that you bring from the areas of general application development and software engineering is a great plus! For example:

  • Experience with TypeScript, databases, or infrastructure is a plus
  • Experience with APIs, REST, and GraphQL is a plus
  • Experience in creating technical illustrations is a plus
  • Interest in information architecture or how documentation content is structured is a plus
