Do you have a passion for open source? Does the idea of helping software professionals build and deploy modern cloud software faster and more collaboratively excite you? Does working at the intersection of modern cloud infrastructure and programming languages — applying all the things we know and love about JavaScript, TypeScript, Python, Go, and .NET to AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Kubernetes, Docker, and Serverless — sound like fun? Are you good at explaining concepts to other people? If you said yes to these questions, then this is the role for you!
