ArangoDB is an open-source, highly scalable Graph Database with Multi-Model capabilities. In addition to graph, it is natively supporting a number of data models including document, and key-value as well as Full-Text Search and Retrieval. It serves as the scalable backbone for Graph-Analytics and complex data architectures across many different industries. Developers can build high-performance applications using a convenient SQL-like query language or JavaScript extensions. Oh, and did we mention it is open source?

As an open-source company, we provide and value the best possible information about the handling of our NoSQL database for both the community and our Enterprise clients. As Software Engineer for our technical documentation team, you are responsible for creating and maintaining internal tools and infrastructure.

Our headquarter is in San Francisco (US), we have an office in Cologne (Germany), but most of our diverse team works remotely worldwide. Since the majority of the Engineering team members are working from Central Europe, candidates in this location & time zone are preferred. So do you prefer your desk at home or do you want to join us at one of our locations? Your choice!

Your Role:

  • You are responsible for developing and maintaining the toolchain for creating, building, and deploying our technical content like tutorials, guides, use case examples, and reference documentation
  • You work closely with the Documentation Team to gather the requirements for the toolchain
  • You create automated tests and checks to ensure the documentation's state

Your Skills:

  • You have development experience with more than one programming language (e.g. Python and/or JavaScript)
  • Working with deployment and container tools comes naturally to you
  • You are familiar with static site generators and documentation tools in general (Jekyll and Markdown would be great, Hugo is a big plus)
  • You have already gained some knowledge around CSS
  • You bring a love for automation to the table (e.g. Github and/or Gitlab)

We love this diversity and encourage everyone who is curious and visionary to join the multi-model movement.
