Developer Advocate

| Remote
Coder is a remote-first company, with our home base in Austin, TX.
Coder is looking for someone to lead our developer relations efforts. But note up front that we are not just looking for someone who wants a job—we are looking for someone who wants to take a leading role in revolutionizing how software is developed. We’ve created a great solution that will benefit a lot of Coders—now we need someone to build relationships and cultivate a community among developers who use our products. We want to communicate with, listen to, and learn from our developer community so that we continue to develop solutions that meet their diverse and evolving requirements. We want to help the innovators innovate. 
We are a startup so your responsibilities will be both broad and deep—and we’re moving very quickly so you’ll need to prioritize effectively and establish lightweight processes to ensure you’re making the best use of your time and resources to propel Coder forward. It’s definitely a firehose in a whirlwind, but in a good way of course.
The Developer Advocate will report to the VP Marketing. 
Essentially, you’ll get to establish Developer Relations practices at Coder. We’ve already got millions of downloads and a lot of active users; we just haven’t yet created a community.

Responsibilities

  • Community Development — Build relationships and develop trust to transform our product user base into an active and engaging community. Ensure that we are listening to developers and building solutions that 1) solve their biggest challenges and 2) make their lives easier.
  • Product Evangelism — Get out and talk to everyone you can and extol the virtues of developing on Coder—convert the masses. You’ll have to be a coder too to have credibility and to demonstrate how the product works.
  • Open-Source Product Messaging — Construct product messaging to articulate the value our technology provides, what challenges it solves, and how developers can benefit from our solutions now. 
  • Developer Enablement — Develop a ton of content to support developer discovery and use of our solutions. Establish programs, create materials, conduct training to ensure our users are fully supported. Do everything you can to empower developers.
  • Events — Own and coordinate developer event planning to maximize coverage and product adoption.
  • Partner Development — Create programs and messaging to build a network of partners to extend our product capabilities and facilitate developer use. 
  • Product Input — Develop a process to incorporate all the input you are obtaining through your conversations with developers into our own product development process to ensure we are building solutions that developers want and need.

Qualifications/Experience:

  • At least seven years of experience in product management, product marketing, engineering, corporate marketing, managing a team—a mix of larger organizations and startups is ideal.
  • An understanding of and experience in high technology—cloud computing, dev/ops, enterprise applications—are a bonus.
  • Experience with software development highly sought after—be a coder to relate to coders - at a minimum an understanding of the development process.
  • Adaptive personality, highly organized and self-motivating, willing to take ownership and deliver results in a fast-paced environment. Should be comfortable with high ambiguity.
  • Ability to understand technology at its core functions and articulate the benefits of the technology at a business level.
  • Innate drive to learn and grow—a want to solve problems and find answers to challenging questions.

If you do not meet the above criteria, but still believe that you can deliver results, please write a brief description detailing how you intend to do that.
What Makes Coder Different?
Coder is an engineering-first organization. Our product is built by engineers, for engineers. We’re committed to building an organization and product optimized for engineering happiness. You can expect a fast-paced workflow and minimal meetings.
 
Our basic requirements for employment are:
- A passion for your craft
- A desire to be successful
 
Core Values
Humanity:
Humanity is the ability to make your peers and partners happy to work with you. This includes being social and open with your coworkers and building deep trusts. In a remote company you don't get this for free, you have to intentionally work for it.
Efficiency:
Efficiency is the tendency to optimize your time:output. It is linked with workflow-obsession and maximal utilization of tools.
 
Feedback:
Feedback is the tendency to seek external validation. That means measuring over assuming. This is linked with reduced cycle times and iterative approaches.

An Insider's view of Coder

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The Coder team is proud of our software and our office vibe reflects that. You'll see people hard at work while jamming to their favorite playlists and brainstorming in huddle rooms. Everyone's voice matters at Coder, so the company founders and executives can be found coding and collaborating alongside the team on the open floor.

Allison Harper

Sales Development Representative

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Remote development has historically been viewed as a subpar alternative to local development. At Coder our goal is to make your remote development workflow indistinguishable from your local workflow, providing you all the benefits of the Cloud without having to give up the tools you love to use in your day-to-day.

Jon Ayers

Senior Software Engineer

How does the company support your career growth?

Coder wants every team member to be world-class at what they do. One of my favorite perks is the accrued $50/month education budget we each receive. I've taken classes on illustration, design, and hostage negotiation.

Clint Kadera

Head of Design

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

We're very collaborative here at Coder. Whether we're knocking out a blog via Google Docs and Slack, or jumping in a conference room to whiteboard the solution to a problem, collaboration is at the forefront of how we operate.

VP of Customer Success
