Developer Advocate

at Pinecone, San Francisco

About Pinecone:

Pinecone is on a mission to build the search and database technology to power AI applications for the next decade and beyond. Our fully managed vector database makes it easy to add vector search to AI applications. Since creating the “vector database” category, demand has grown incredibly fast and it shows in our user base. We are a distributed team with clusters in New York, San Francisco, Tel-Aviv, and Manchester.

About the Team and Role:

As a Developer Advocate at Pinecone, you will apply your AI development and instructional skills to help Pinecone users succeed as they discover, explore, and build with vector databases. Our educational videos, articles, and workshops contribute significantly to our success and our users’ success, so you will make an immediate and measurable impact. This can be a mid or senior level role, depending on experience. You will report to the Director of Developer Relations and collaborate with the most technical marketing team you’ve ever seen, as well as the Engineering, Product, and Customer Success teams.

To succeed in this role, you must have technical skills to learn and use our API-first product. You must be passionate about sharing this knowledge with others through tutorials, video snippets, docs contributions, hackathon mentorship, and the occasional tweets. Our team is growing fast and the customers are growing even faster, so you must be comfortable working with a high degree of autonomy in a fast-paced environment.

  • Proactively create instructional materials (content, videos, and code samples) for our docs, social profiles, and community forum.

  • Collaborate with Engineering and Product to influence the product roadmap as the “voice of the community.”

 Requirements:

  • 2+ years of experience in a technical role such as software engineering, solution engineering, or machine learning.

  • Familiarity with the modern AI stack: LLMs and vector databases.

  • Superb written and verbal communication skills.

  • Ability to travel 5–15% of the year throughout the US for events.

  • (Preferred, not required) 1+ year of developer advocacy experience.
