About us

Holo is a distributed cloud platform and marketplace that enables the hosting of peer-to-peer applications by everyday users connected to the Internet. Holo is an app built on Holochain, our new open source, framework infrastructure technology for distributed peer-to-peer applications. Holochain is lightning fast, massively scalable, cost effective, resource efficient, and eco-friendly.

To help fuel the growth of new patterns of technology and social interaction, we are also seeding the growth of a Holochain Application (hApp) Ecosystem and training a developer community that will build many more apps.

The Role:

As a Holochain Developer Advocate, your role is to equip developers in our community to build distributed applications and help grow the ecosystem. Your focus is a mix of building tools and resources, delivering trainings and presentations online and offline, and developing relationships.

Essential Responsibilities Include:

Building Tools & Resources:

  • Develop first-class developer scenarios and demo apps, collateral, and training material to demonstrate the value of Holochain and build excitement.

  • Write production-quality code and contribute to Holochain tools, applications, core components, mixins, tutorials, and examples.

  • Commit, review, and test Holochain-Core code.

  • Participate in the full Holochain app development process, as well as UX development & optimization.

  • Comfortable with full stack web and mobile/desktop software development; for example, progressive web front-end, web services, web application, and optional native mobile/desktop development.

  • Excel in software architecture, including creating composable libraries and starter applications for use by developers in the ecosystem.

  • Create technical content for publication on our blog and other channels to show developers how to implement specific solutions or use the Holochain Development Kit (HDK).

Training, Webinars, and Presentations:

  • Educate and empower developers through technical workshops and webinars.

  • Speak and share your expertise at developer groups and conferences.

  • Willingness to take the stage—a developer advocate needs to deliver presentations that are effective.

  • Present technology with enthusiasm and authenticity to developers, developer managers, and CTOs.

  • Deliver presentations at Meetups, Hackathons, Developer Challenges, and significant community events.

  • Submit papers to speak at relevant technical conferences.

Building Communities and Relationships:

  • Build strategic relationships and partnerships with individuals, companies, and organizations with whom we share common communities.

  • Advocate on behalf of our development community so that they feel their voices are heard, concerns are addressed, and feedback is incorporated into key development decisions.

  • Support our developers wherever they are—on Mattermost, forums, Stack Overflow, and everywhere in between.

  • Create new market opportunities and identify innovative solutions to expand developer engagements.

  • Be an inspiring leader in the market and the voice of developers in the ecosystem.

Skills & Experience:

  • You are a community leader and understand the vital work that is involved in ecosystem management. Developers are one of the most valuable constituencies in our ecosystem today; as such, our developer community can help catalyze the expansion and adoption of Holochain.

  • You are a forward-thinking developer, masterful communicator, and ecosystem influencer.

  • You have passion, curiosity, technical depth, and extraordinary communication and presentation skills.

  • You have solid and diverse engineering skills—have a good pulse of current development technologies across several platforms.

  • You geek out over building apps, finding solutions to hard problems, interacting with other developers and derive intrinsic satisfaction from helping others learn by doing.

  • You can converse with a broad range of developer technologies and communities (Rust, Javascript, iOS/Android, OpenStack, Distributed Ledger Technologies, to name a few) while having deep domain expertise in a specific area.

  • You are a friendly and approachable person, as well as a great mentor.

  • You have an entrepreneurial mindset and the ability to act effectively with only high-level direction.

  • You also can speak the language of business and understand how these technologies align with an organization's business and technical needs.

  • You are able to work irregular hours and some weekends to support Hackathons, conferences, and other developer events (online and offline).

In an ideal world:

  • You can demo an application that you have built using the Holochain Development Kit (HDK) as part of the interview process.

  • 5+ years of engineering or software developer experience

  • More than 6 months participation in the community, familiarity with Holochain, and/or distributed technologies

  • Proven experience of advocacy for a technology

  • Links to other websites and resources where we might learn more about you (GitHub, Twitter, YouTube, Twitch, website, etc.) are greatly appreciated

Some details about what we offer:

  • Generous salary (National Currency)

  • Generous crypto pay program (HOT & HoloFuel)

  • Supportive team trial period

  • Regular team meetings (video and in person)

  • Collaborative and inspiring culture

  • Flexible work schedules and vacation

  • Motivated, passionately engaged, and evolutionary global teammates

Holo is an equal opportunity employer that celebrate a diverse, creative, and collaborative team.
