  • Create educational video content to enhance Checkly’s already thriving YouTube channel, focusing on MaC and related topics.
  • Shape and influence Checkly’s product and developer experience through feedback, education and code.

  • Proficient in monitoring and observability, with publicly available work samples.
  • Experience in roles like software development or SRE, including hands-on experience with monitoring and production systems.
  • Skilled at advocacy and engagement of developers across channels.
  • Experience, patience and empathy to teach developers about best-practices and new technologies, whether in-person, by writing tutorials or by recording a video.
  • Fluent in at least one programming language (e.g., JavaScript, TypeScript) and familiar with modern cloud infrastructure.
  • Excellent spoken and written English.
  • Ability to be autonomous and self-motivated in a remote, async-first work environment, while you also enjoy getting to know your colleagues and helping others.
  • Knowledgeable with “as Code” workflows and tools like Grafana, Prometheus, OpenTofu, and Terraform.
