Community Developer

Twilio via Jobspresso
Development

Anywhere in US

May 29th 2018


You are a developer. You know how magical code can be when it works, and how frustrating it feels when it doesn't. You enjoy sharing that knowledge with others, and you do so with patience and empathy.

You care deeply about people. You remember people's names and preferences. You make introductions and create experiences where the community can gather. IRL, you enjoy grabbing coffee and letting the other person do most of the talking. Online, your interactions are grounded in empathy, and you generally prefer to praise in public and criticize in private.

You are a storyteller. On stage, in blog posts, in emails, and in tweets, you know how to craft a narrative with a beginning, middle, and end. And you enjoy making others the hero of the story.

What?

You'll help us cultivate a global, diverse, polylingual community of Twilio Developers. For many of those developers you will be “the face” of Twilio — the person they ping when they need help. They will feel like VIPs because they know you. And when someone who works at Twilio needs to talk to the community, they'll come to you.

You'll organize in-person events where our developer community can gather: dinners, movie nights, unconferences, and hackathons for new products. You'll play the role of event planner and host — picking a venue and inviting the right folks, and making them feel like honored guests when they arrive.

You'll write and deploy software to give our small team more leverage, and to make sure that we never lose empathy for our community.

Why?

Twilio's mission is to fuel the future of communications.

The Developer Network is the team at Twilio whose mission is to catalyze the network of developers who will build the future of communications. The DevNet is comprised of three teams that work closely with one another. Developer Evangelists inspire and equip developers by going to the language-centric and geographic communities where developers gather. Developer Educators challenge and empower developers by crafting world-class docs and training. Community Developers encourage and amplify developers by cultivating a core community of Twilio developers. Together, these three teams introduce developers to Twilio, and then strengthen the relationships between us.

Twilio is a company committed to your growth, your learning, your development and your entire employee experience. We only win when our employees succeed and we're dedicated to helping you develop your strengths. We have a cultural foundation built on diversity, inclusion and innovation and we want you and your ideas to thrive at Twilio.

Where?

This is a remote position, based in a major metro area within the US. While working remote, you will still enjoy our incredible perks: a free Kindle when you build your Twilio app, monthly Kindle book reimbursement, monthly gym reimbursement, unlimited PTO, bi-weekly All Hands and more. What you will also get to experience is a company that believes in small teams for maximum impact; that strives to balance work and home life, that understands that this is a marathon, not a sprint; that continuously and purposefully builds an inclusive culture where everyone is able to do and be the best version of themselves. We seek people who naturally demonstrate our values, who are challenged by problems, empower others to thrive, people who can draw the owl and not be beholden to one playbook.

Twilio is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is an affirmative action employer. We are committed to equal opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, gender, gender identity, parental or pregnancy status, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, or Veteran status and operate in compliance with the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance.
