About The Job
As a Developer Advocate, you will use modern APIs to build open-source software examples and demos for PubNub’s mobile and other platforms combining PubNub APIs. In addition, you will use the latest technology and champion developer interests in your pick of niche communities. This role is ideal for those with a past job title of Developer Educator, Developer Advocate, Developer Evangelist, Developer Relations, Software Engineer, and the like. You work with developers and other departments to understand developer needs and translate those needs into solutions, such as code examples, demos, talks, videos, documentation, workshops, meetups, events, and more. You represent the developer and own developer problems externally and internally for the company and are confident in making a case presenting developer problems and solutions to other teams. You enjoy public speaking and sharing your work, and do it with a positive and outgoing attitude. Ongoing flexibility in how you work to accomplish your goals is ok with you. You like exploring programming languages and technologies you may not be familiar with and can rapidly assess how to produce and promote new content and solutions for your discoveries.

As a Developer Advocate, you will build relationships with the developer community by generating content that will:

  • grow developer interest in PubNub.
  • provoke more signups and trials for PubNub's service.
