A bit about Scalyr

Scalyr’s mission is to build the best tool for engineers to understand their operational systems. Our CEO, Steve Newman, cofounded Writely (aka Google Docs). Frustrated by the fact that visibility tools - even Google’s in-house tools - weren’t keeping up, he started Scalyr to build a better solution. It’s lightning fast, feature-rich and customers love it. The opportunity in front of us is huge and we are still in the very early days. This is going to be one of those companies where people will look back and say “I wish I’d been there when…” well, this is “when”.

Your opportunity

This is a wide-ranging and highly visible role. You'll be working closely with both our sales and engineering teams to introduce Scalyr to new customers. You'll answer questions, give demos, solve configuration problems, troubleshoot usage issues, and show our prospects how best to use and succeed with Scalyr. You’ll help Scalyr build out a team of Sales Engineering, and help us build our process.

Our customers are highly technical (software engineers, DevOps engineers, etc.), so you should be comfortable interacting with folks in those roles.
