How to connect to Managed MySql cluster using jump server

We have a managed MySQL cluster at DigitalOcean, and we want to allow direct access to our dev team to work on that database, without having to add their IP address to trusted sources every time their local IP gets changed.

The question now is, can we use a droplet as a jump server, so our dev team can ssh tunnel through this server to the database, and we add only this jump server to the trusted sources.
