The world loves Postgres. If you work with developers or data scientists or anyone wrangling data, you’ll probably see a sticker with the tusks and trunk of the Postgres elephant on the lid of a nearby laptop. EDB has a lot to do with that.

We’ve been major contributors to Postgres since the beginning, and we are proud to call thousands of boundary pushing customers our partners. Proud though we are, we are not resting on our laurels. There’s plenty of work to do. The good news is that everything we do will impact Postgres, which is to say that it will impact the world. No pressure.

Candidates please note: This role is 100% remote for candidates based in Germany, Italy, Spain or France as EU Citizens (preference to those who speak both English & another language)

The Solutions Architect is an integral part of the EDB's success with our customers. The Solutions Architect focuses on the integration of the EDB Postgres Platform with the customer’s enterprise infrastructure to create highly available and resilient solutions, while providing technical guidance and leadership.

You'll be a leader in the following topic areas: 

  • Deep understanding of logical and streaming replication in PostgreSQL
  • Security and Authentication, for example with Kerberos, Active Directory or LDAP
  • Backup, Recovery and Storage Management in PostgreSQL
  • Configuration Management Solutions, such as Ansible, Puppet or Chef
  • Public and private cloud solutions, such as Docker, Kubernetes or Openshift
  • Big data solutions, such as Hadoop or Cassandra

Responsibilities

  • Work with customers to help them realize the value of EDB’s open source-based database platform
  • Create, articulate, and document a suite of reference architectures that illustrate the breadth of the EDB Postgres Platform in OLTP and OLAP applications under multiple deployment models
  • Support EDB’s field teams (sales engineers and account executives) in difficult technical and architectural situations
  • Work with EDB partners to create reference architectures that illustrate EDB Postgres in the context of the partner’s capabilities
  • Mentor junior team members and help them develop their technical skills
  • Publish blogs, white papers and conference contributions
  • Collaborate with Product Development and Product Management to further the capabilities of the EDB Postgres Platform
  • Collaborate with Product Marketing to articulate the capabilities of the EDB Product Platform and create technical marketing collateral

Requirements

  • 8+ years of professional experience developing and deploying complex solutions in business environments
  • Hands-on experience with leading deployment models (containers, virtual machines, hypervisors, Puppet, Chef, Salt, Ansible, etc.)
  • Extensive hands-on experience with PostgreSQL
  • Prior experience in a consulting or professional service environment
  • Excellent communication skills, including public speaking
  • Comfort with domestic travel (once it's safe) up to 20% 
  • Hands on experience with leading public cloud infrastructures (AWS, Azure)
