Our Vision: 
At Neo4j, we have always strived to help the world make sense of data.
As business, society and knowledge become increasingly connected, our technology promotes innovation by helping organizations to find and understand data relationships. We created, drive and lead the graph database category, and we’re disrupting how organizations leverage their data to innovate and stay competitive.
Who is Neo4j?
Neo4j is the open source graph database and the company behind it. We are the creator of and leader in the graph database category, which is a type of database that excels at managing and analyzing highly connected data.
In 2022, we’re expanding our work on creating the best place to do Graph Machine Learning, using our suite of tools including Graph Data Science, and we’re looking for someone who can help!
With a ten year history we’ve created and grown the graph database category. Neo4j has over fifty million downloads, the world’s largest graph developer community, and thousands of graph-powered applications in production. With our recently launched cloud services we’re opening new possibilities for our users and the company to take the next step in making using graphs easier and more widespread.
Our Community
One of the most important and foundational parts of Neo4j’s growth is our user community. Our user community is important for our users and our success. Only by growing to a larger, more supportive and active  community can we scale graph usage to the levels we envision. We want to create an engagement loop that supports this sustainable growth.
What we are looking for:
Our ideal candidate would be an experienced data scientist who loves to teach and communicate.  We’re looking for someone who is excited about engaging with the world in person, on online forums and in social media.  If this sounds like you and you stay on top of what’s happening in the ML world, we should talk.   We strongly encourage under-represented groups to apply.
As a Data Science Advocate, you are a technologist first and foremost, and will help teach other data scientists how to build out Graph Machine Learning approaches.  You will participate in events and many other programs together with our community & marketing teams.  We are looking for someone who is already a member of the ML practitioner community with credibility; not a marketer.  The aim of the role is to help users succeed and to open up graph technology to a wide base of data scientists across the world.
Reporting to the Senior Director of Developer Relations, you’ll work closely with a distributed team.  You’ll also work with Neo4j departments such as Product Management, Engineering, and others.

  • We value relationships
  • We focus on user success
  • We thrive in a culture that is open and inclusive
  • We assume positive intent
  • We welcome intellectually honest discussions
  • We deliver on our commitments

At Neo4j, we value relationships and that involves building an environment where everyone feels like they belong. We believe strong relationships involve being accountable, bringing our whole selves to work, valuing intellectually honest discussions and being receptive to new ideas and perspectives. One of our central goals is to provide an inclusive, diverse and equitable workplace for everyone to develop their potential and have a positive, career-defining experience.
Are you intrigued by this role? We encourage you to apply even if you don’t 100% fit the qualifications above.

We look at the success of this role in terms of outreach to the data science community and enabling user success.  In a few months, you will have learned about graph technology and how to improve education for the community.  A few months later, you will have worked on several programs in front of our community; helping them succeed with Neo4j Sandbox, AuraDS, and GDS.
