Who we are: Serverless is a Series A (Lightspeed Ventures, Trinity Ventures) startup that is changing the way cloud software is built and deployed.

We’re a small, distributed team that is obsessed with delivering value to developers. 

We've built one of the most popular pieces of open-source software in the world and in the process grown an extremely engaged and active developer community. As our company scales, the growth team is tasked with continuing to shepherd and add value to our community while also developing and executing the go-to-market strategy for our commercial products.

We've worked hard to build one of largest, and most passionate open-source developer communities in the world and now we're looking for a strong advocate to help scale our developer community to the next level.

You will build examples applications, industry specific use cases, POCs for new cases, and more to help educate developers of the power of serverless development. You will also create content, give talks, and take on any other program you deem necessary in order to get your message out to a wider audience.
