Sharetribe is now looking for a first ever Developer Advocate to strengthen their team!

We’re looking for a new teammate to join us as our first ever Developer Advocate. You’re an ideal candidate if you are a developer who is motivated to teach and assist other developers to thrive at their work. You also enjoy building a community.

In this role your tasks include providing technical consultation to our customers. You will have a big role in the developer support rotation, and you’ll also actively think of ways to further improve the developer support experience. You will empower developers to get the most out of Sharetribe Flex. Flex is a headless, API-first Software-as-a-Service solution with a vision to make it as easy as possible for software developers to build original, established marketplaces fast.

You will have an important role in improving the Sharetribe Flex Documentation site and producing educational material such as written content and video tutorials together with the Customer Advocacy team. You will participate in figuring out how content contributions from third-party developers are published and distributed and you’ll be working with Product Management to communicate the needs of developers. And perhaps the most importantly, you will be the voice of the Flex developer community inside the team – you ensure that the value of the products is connected to the needs of developers in messaging.

In practice, you’ll have a lot of freedom in shaping your role, but you are not left alone – the team is constantly with you. As an employee, we hope you are a skilled communicator and you love sharing knowledge and producing content. You can work independently and set the direction for your work. The most important thing is that you’re passionate about advocating for the developer community at large. You truly love sharing, teaching, and empowering others to do the best work they can.

Sharetribe can offer you:

  • Your work will have a global impact. We have more than 1000 customers in 70+ countries, on 6 continents. They all rely on our software to power their marketplace platforms. These platforms are already used by millions of people. And we’re just getting started.
  • You will be in charge (really). Sharetribe is not governed by outside shareholders. We’re a profitable company, owned 100% by our current team members. You really get to affect how the company is run, and what its strategy should be.
  • Full transparency. Our core belief is that to be able to work together efficiently, people need to trust each other fully. We believe that maximal transparency encourages maximal trust.
  • Perks that matter. We support you in maintaining a healthy life balance and offer you significant freedom to design your ideal working conditions, including time and location.

What makes you ideal for this role?

  • You have basic knowledge of JavaScript and React and know about building web applications. You are motivated to learn new tools and languages
  • You have good communication skills – you like interacting with developers and can assist them with their problems
  • You’re a creative and skilled writer and comfortable with producing video content
  • You have a pragmatic attitude and you’re open to new approaches for finding solutions in the face of technical constraints
  • You have some work experience from developing and/or customer service or marketing
  • Fluency in English
