Developer Advocate - Pulumi HQ

Pulumi


Remote Job Description

Do you have a passion for open source? Does the idea of helping software professionals build and deploy modern cloud software faster and more collaboratively excite you? Does working at the intersection of modern cloud infrastructure and programming languages — applying all the things we know and love about JavaScript, TypeScript, Python, Go, and .NET to AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Kubernetes, Docker, and Serverless — sound like fun? Are you good at explaining concepts to other people? If you said yes to these questions, then this is the role for you!

Pulumi is looking for a passionate Developer Advocate to lead our community outreach, spreading the word about how Pulumi can help developers and operators build innovative cloud software together. The Pulumi community is warm, welcoming, and already growing fast organically. You will be a part of realizing a vision where every team can program the cloud.

The Developer Advocate role at Pulumi is a unique opportunity to connect with developers worldwide, influence the direction of the product, and help to nurture and build out our growing community. Pulumi’s infrastructure as code platform is open source, and integrates with an enterprise SaaS suite of products, that is community-led in all aspects of its development. In this role, you will drive growth through community outreach, social, online content, and events.

Expect to learn, teach, and collaborate with a world class team of great people.

Responsibilities:
  • Design and develop product demos addressing common community pain points.
  • Fuel momentum and nurture the success of Pulumi’s open source platform by advocating in-person and online through conference talks, workshops, blogging, social media, videos, technical tutorials, and other similar activities.
  • Understand and help shape Pulumi’s go-to-market outreach programs, based on your own understanding of the developer and operator personas and ecosystem.
  • Advocate for your community internally with product, engineering, sales, and marketing, and influence the direction of Pulumi’s platform and product roadmap.
  • Build and foster an external community ecosystem of influencers, meetups, and experts to amplify and extend our community reach through mutually beneficial partnerships.
  • Estimated travel of 30% within the United States and internationally.

Desired Experience:
  • 3+ years in a software development environment.
  • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or equivalent a plus.
  • Excellent interpersonal, written, and verbal communication skills.
  • Demonstrable experience of public speaking, especially at technology conferences.
  • Ability to author assets such as blog articles, presentations, and white papers.
  • Experience in one or more of the following technologies a plus:
    • Languages: Go, JavaScript, TypeScript, Python, or C#.
    • Cloud Platforms: Docker, Kubernetes, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform.
  • Prior experience designing and running hands-on training or workshop programs a plus.
