Required Experience

1+ full-time software engineering experience Perfect English verbal and writing skills Technical writing skills Extensive experience using at least one of the following; AWS, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure

Background

A core part of our service is a product catalog ultimately containing the knowledge-base for developers to quickly research every single cloud and developer tool in the universe. The content also fulfils a secondary purpose of feeding into the recommendation engine behind our service. Due to the latter, we need to structure the catalog content in such a way that it can be called via API for different purposes. It can't just be a big block of rich text or have large structural variances between providers and products.

Our catalog data focusses on products in the Infrastructure (e.g: AWS EC2, Backblaze B2, Fastly CDN) and API layer (e.g.: Twilio Messaging API) of cloud tooling. Here are some example categories we want to tackle in the short term:

AI/ML Platforms API Gateways Kubernetes Platforms Data Protection / Cloud Backup Messaging APIs Conversation APIs/SDKs Application Performance Monitoring (APM) Continuous Integration and Deployment (CI/CD) Log Management

Project Requirements

Data entry will primarily occur in a collection of Google Sheets documents (one for each product) produced from a template and organized in folders by Category.

The core components of the data entry, also listed below:

General info Pricing Non-Standard Features Features Matrix Compliance Matrix Product Integrations

Technology

We're building a robust cost and usage ingestion pipeline for every cloud platform, ML clustering of workloads by use case, and a community-generated knowledge-base to help people best rearrange their stack.
