Developer Advocate - Community

Marketing – Marketing /
2022 was an amazing year for Doppler. So far we have helped over 22,500 startups and enterprises manage their secrets at scale, more than tripled our team size, 14x our revenue, and raised a round from CRV, Google Ventures and Sequoia. We just raised our $20M Series A and are getting far more ambitious by setting even higher product, growth, sales, and headcount goals.
Doppler's mission is to make it easy and secure for developers of every experience level and teams of any size to manage their app configuration and secrets. But hasn't this been done?
Developers tend to be either struggling with the manual management of .env files, or wrestling with an overly complex secrets manager that's not built for software development. Doppler is changing that by making app configuration and secrets management easy, intuitive, and scalable. It's the SecretOps platform built by developers for developers.
Our team is entrepreneurial, with a bias for action. We never back down from a spirited debate and believe we are all responsible for exploring the hard questions. We value self-awareness and meaningful impact. We are open to unconventional approaches and have learned not to judge a book by its cover. Your time is your most valuable resource, so you set your hours. We use Slack to communicate and default to zero meetings. We aim to document everything. We also recommend you invest your time in 10% compounding time.
Developer Advocate at Doppler:
We are looking for someone who is excited to expand the SecretOps market, and help developers understand, evaluate, adopt, and succeed with Doppler through technical knowledge sharing. This person is at the intersection of code, technical content, and community education and evangelism. Someone with a passion for enabling others to succeed through the creation of educational resources and community support and enablement.
Salary: $140,000 - $160,000 USD
You'll spend your time:
- Educate and evangelize on Doppler and SecretOps through compelling technical sharing (Workshops, Coding challenges, How-to guides, Tutorials, Support articles, Feedback surveys, Blog posts, Video tutorials and more)
- Foster the growth of our developer community and expand our presence in adjacent developer communities
- Contribute to a content strategy for the team and develop your own great content across a variety of different media: blog posts, videos, podcasts, cheat-sheets

- Partner with product engineering teams to build compelling demos and collaborate with our community of open-source contributors to develop new integrations for Doppler

- Identify and pursue opportunities for events, programs, and other community-focused work that establishes trust with developers
- Proactively build out our and your brand through strong technical thought leadership
- Experience creating technical written content. This can be official product API or SDK documentation, open-source projects, READMEs, or tutorials for blogs
- Demonstrable experience in working within and supporting technical communities. This doesn't mean you need to have been employed to serve a community. It's more about being community-minded and being able to demonstrate your support and engagement with communities.
- Comfortable preparing and speaking at all levels, including workshops, webinars, conferences, and small group roundtables
- Interest in DevOps, Security, or both. To enable our customers and the community we need to help them get the most out of using Doppler.
