Data is growing exponentially - 90% of the world's data was generated in the past 2 years alone. Not only data is growing, but also it is changing toward a stream of time stamped events. Time-series data is particularly powerful to explain historical trends over time and is by far the most popular data type in the past 24 months.
This explosive data growth requires a paradigm shift in database performance. QuestDB was founded by a low-latency trading team. Time-series and fast software are part of our DNA. Through QuestDB, companies can harness the power of real-time and big data processing in a wide array of industries.
Helping developers solve their problems is at the center of what we do. Your role will consist of producing content for targeted open source communities to improve developers’ engagement with our time-series database. This content will fuel developer’s usage of QuestDB and establish the brand in the global developer community.
You do not have to be a database expert, but you should be able to carry through research while liaising with software engineers and product managers to understand the technicalities of our product and consequently write about it in an accurate and engaging way.
