Posted 2 days ago

From our products to our team members, Neo4j is centered around relationships.
We hire candidates who are fundamentally wired to connect – whether that's a business opportunity, an innovative customer solution, or a feat of data engineering. 
We're looking for a talented person to join the Neo4j team and help us further the Neo4j vision to help the world make sense of data.
Who is Neo4j?
Neo4j is the clear leader in the rapidly emerging graph database category.
Our internet-scale graph platform helps companies around the world connect data to reveal invisible contexts and hidden relationships that drive breakthrough applications and analytics.
As the #1 platform for connected data, Neo4j has over fifty million downloads, the world’s largest graph developer community, and thousands of graph-powered applications in production.
One year ago, we launched Neo4j Aura, our database-as-a-service offering, to make Neo4j available as a fully-managed service in the cloud. This year, we're expanding Aura to make it more accessible to Developers for learning, experimentation, and personal projects. This expansion is a key component of a broader Product-Led Growth strategy for Neo4j. For new-to-graph Developers to activate with Neo4j Aura and then be successful, we must intimately understand their goals and curate a truly delightful context-sensitive experience that helps them achieve them. That experience benefits not just the graph-naïve Developer but every Developer that encounters Aura. Your role is to own the design of this experience.
