GridGain is looking to hire a contract Content Creator who can work with our team to get a handle on our 1250+ page website.


When it comes to enterprise applications, microseconds matter. And when organizations need extreme speed and scale, they turn to GridGain Systems. GridGain is the company behind Apache Ignite, the open source distributed database preferred by performance-obsessed developers. We are also the provider of the GridGain In-memory Computing Platform that JPMorgan Chase, ING, Citi, UPS, American Airlines, DreamWorks, CMA CGM, IBM, VMware, Microsoft, and United Healthcare rely on for application speed, scale and availability.

GridGain is growing. So, now’s the time to join the company that, in 2021, was recognized among Silicon Valley Business Journal Fastest Growing Private Companies, the Deloitte Technology Fast 500, and the Inc. 5000.


GridGain is seeking a contract writer to work across our marketing, training and technical teams. The goal is as simple as it is broad: publish on-brand content that enables software developers to learn, use and succeed with Apache Ignite and GridGain products. We have the beginnings of an editorial calendar and messaging guidelines. You’ll help us solidify those efforts, and then write for developers, architects and buyers. We already have more than 1250 pages on our website, with some great content, some outdated content that needs a refresh and a lot of tidying up to do. You will work on both editing existing content and creating new content.
