WHY WE'RE LOOKING FOR YOU
Our goal is to make Retool the way developers build all internal applications. To get there, we have to work closely with developers — both to spread adoption of Retool, and to gather their feedback. We’re fortunate to have this growing community of developers and customers that are passionate about Retool and how it’s helped them in their work. We’re excited to grow, deepen, and nurture that community and we need someone to lead the charge.
WHAT YOU'LL DO
As a developer advocate, you’ll spread adoption of Retool by both by developing content (sample apps, video tutorials, documentation, etc.), as well as building communities (establishing meetups, attending developer conferences to give talks, etc.). You’ll leverage your past experience giving talks at conferences, writing blog posts, and understanding developer communities to lead the charge in our developing communities.
We’ll look to you to help us understand the intersection between developer evangelism, education, and advocacy and help define the function at Retool. You’ll set the agenda when it comes to events and content, but will work with other internal stakeholders to get a sense of what might complement our roadmap this year and beyond.
WHO YOU'LL WORK WITH
You'll be joining an engineering-driven company and you'll have a lot of opportunity to overlap with end-users of Retool internally: our engineers! You'll also connect with our our CTO, CEO, and head of marketing to build a strategy that will help drive Retool and our communities forward.
On a broader note, we’re a hard-working, passionate bunch who are motivated by collaboration, strong results, and bringing the impact of Retool to our customers. When we’re in the office, we enjoy eating lunch (and occasionally dinner!) together, and swapping stories. But at the root of it all, we come together to show our customers and not-quite-yet customers how Retool can make them and their companies more efficient and successful. If this sounds like you, we’d love to hear from you!
