We are the original creators of Apache Flink, the open-source unified batch/stream processing system that powers applications for all types of companies, from tech giants (Alibaba, Amazon, Netflix, etc) to more traditional enterprises like banks and telecommunications companies. We contribute heavily to Apache Flink while building enterprise-grade products on top of Flink.

Come join our highly talented team at Ververica and work with friendly colleagues on problems and products that change how companies implement data processing, analytics, and applications. Become part of one of the biggest and most active open-source communities, connect with users around the world, and do work that has a visible impact. You will have the opportunity to contribute to cutting-edge technology or be an advocate for new approaches to long-standing problems.

Innovation thrives when diverse points of view come together. Thus, we strive for an equal and inclusive work environment and welcome diverse life experiences and diverse work/educational backgrounds. We’d love to hear how you bring something unique and valuable to our teams.

Time Zone to work in: EMEA (UTC to UTC+2) or Americas (UTC-4 to UTC-8)


The opportunity

We are seeking full-time Solution Architects / Sales Engineers of all levels to join our pre-sales team at Ververica. In this role, you will work alongside sales colleagues as their technical conscience. You will also have the opportunity to support our clients independently and directly, ie. during their evaluations, escalated support issues, or training and consulting inquiries. 

We are a highly motivated software company originally from Berlin, Germany now operating globally. We love open source but understand commercial needs as well. We are following an open-core business model and looking for additional talents to help us achieve our goals and that of our parent company. We are not a start-up anymore, your employment is backed by one of the largest tech companies. 

At Ververica we embrace diversity and diversity embraces us. If you feel you can add to it, please apply! And if not, still apply – we love diverse skills just as much.

The work

As Solution Architect / Sales Engineer you like working with external clients, the open-source community, and internal colleagues alike. You will be the go-to person for any technical topics in the sales process and will also assist in bringing your clients up to speed.

You will work with engineering teams inside of our customers to build the best possible stream processing architecture for their use cases, both in their data centers and Clouds. This includes reviewing their architecture, potentially giving guidance on how they design their Flink applications, and helping them take their first steps with our products.

Some of the customer engagements will be carried out remotely, but the position may also include traveling to customers to help them onsite.

And when you are not working with our customers, there are plenty of opportunities at Ververica to learn more about Flink, contribute to the products and open-source projects, and help evangelize to users around the world.


What you will do all day is …

… to use your experience to solve challenging data engineering and stream processing problems for our customers,

… to meet with customers, understand their requirements, and help guide them towards best-of-breed architectures,

… to provide guidance and assistance during the implementation phase and make sure projects end in successful production deployments,

… to become an Apache Flink and stream processing expert.

You will love this job if you …

... already have some years of experience in a similar or related job (ie. as a software engineer) for senior positions,

… have some experience in the major Public Clouds (AWS, Azure, GCP) or Private Cloud environments or are interested in gaining it,

… think Kubernetes, Data Warehouses and Data Lakes, Java or SQL are not planets, 

… are experienced in building and operating solutions using distributed data processing systems on large scale production environments (e.g. Hadoop, Kafka, Flink, Spark) or are interested,

… love to spend the whole day talking about Big Data technologies,

… are curious to learn and apply new things,

… are open-minded and pragmatic,

… have great English skills and like talking to customers.

What we offer are … 

… very competitive compensation (salary, stocks, bonus) and benefits,

… flexible working arrangements (in European or American time zones),

… offices in many locations to come and meet colleagues – but also work if you like!


If this is the next step in your career, please apply! We are looking forward to getting to know you personally.
