Do you consider yourself a software developer, but you are also excited about developer communities and helping other developers? If that sounds interesting to you, please read on.

Heroku is looking for a Developer Advocate with past experience in a developer-facing role, creating demos, writing blog posts, and building communities. This role can be remote or you can work from a Salesforce office, but we would like you to be in a North American timezone. Also, this role will require 10-30% travel.


> What is Heroku?

Heroku’s mission is to create the fastest path for application developers to turn an idea into a production app of any scale. We want to remove every obstacle that slows down creative coders and let them focus on their customers’ experience while leaving everything else to our service. Today, Heroku powers over 7 million apps ranging from personal hobby apps to Internet top 100 apps. In aggregate, we serve more than 23 billion requests per day. Yet, it only takes minutes for a new developer to get the first app up and running, ready to serve customers.

Heroku is one of the fastest growing businesses at Salesforce.

Heroku’s Developer Advocacy team is small but scrappy and distributed around the U.S. We educate, inspire, and spark community among developers and also advocate internally for them. Sometimes this means working individually on some code or a demo or a conference talk. Other times, this means working closely with other Heroku teams like Product, Marketing, or Engineering.

> Some Things You Might Work On

  • Interact (virtually and in-person) with developers

  • Write blog posts

  • Organize meetups

  • Create product demos

  • Record podcasts

  • Test new product features

  • Create conference talks

  • Attend events

  • Design and build a community program

  • Collect and share developer trends, desires, and feedback internally

  • Mentor other developers (writing and speaking)

  • Maybe most importantly, decide which of these are important and define how we work on them


> Who you are


CODE

You're a developer first. As a coder, you can empathize with other developers, build credibility speaking to them, and even sit down with them in a debugging session.

You have experience with at least one of Heroku’s supported languages: Node, Ruby, Java, PHP, Python, or Go and something else. Experience meaning not just an understanding of the syntax but also the community. That “something else” could be data, Apache Kafka, API design, web performance, mobile development, continuous delivery, microservices, distributed systems design/architecture, AI/ML, etc. Share what you're excited about with us.

But you aren't satisfied calling yourself just a developer.

COMMUNITY

You also like engaging deeply with developer communities. Even better, you've helped build or grow a developer community. This means you've participated in or helped to organize meetups, conferences, or hackathons. Or it could mean that you've been an integral member of a popular open source project, or you've otherwise participated in a community in a meaningful way virtually. Ideally, more than one of these things.

CONTENT

Content is how the Developer Advocate communicates their ideas and the meaning behind their code. Whether it's writing a technical blog post, scripting out an engaging demo, crafting a clear GitHub repo README, speaking in a podcast, or presenting an idea or project in a conference talk, content allows us to share our message with and hear feedback from a larger audience.

You should relish the thought of composing clean, clear prose almost as much as you do writing concise, elegant code and not be averse to speaking in front of a group of your peers.


Other Desirable Characteristics or Background

  • Infectious energy

  • Excited about Heroku’s desire to provide simple, intuitive tools to developers

  • Experience at a company with a developer-focused product

  • Comfortable (as much as one can be) with public speaking

  • Comfortable speaking with customers

    1 month ago

    We are looking for a passionate Senior Customer Engineer to bring Pulumi’s cloud programming model to the world. You will be a part of realizing a vision where every developer can program the cloud.

    In this customer-facing engineering role, you will be the center of successful implementations of Pulumi with our newest users. It will be your job to take the shared vision of a customer deal and deliver on it: from assessing our customer environment, building a customized deployment plan, and working internally and externally to ensure our customers are happily using all of the Pulumi power they purchased.

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

    Pulumi is headquartered in Seattle, WA. This role is home office, preferably based on the East Coast to best serve our customers there. If you prefer a co-working space, that can be arranged. We are committed to our remote workforce and building a cohesive team.

    In This Job You Will:

    Work with customers across their entire lifecycle - from pre-sales (demos, answering inbound questions, reaching out to new users) to post-sales (on-boarding, technical reviews, answering support tickets.)

    Create technical materials for customers - examples, guides, demo scripts, product briefs, etc.

    Onboard enterprise customers, optimizing Pulumi for their environment.

    Close the loop between customers, product, and engineering teams, championing the product to the customer, and bringing their requirements to the roadmap.

    Listen and respond; build and advise on the best technical choices for our customers.

    Be challenged, solve new problems, teach about our technologies, and figuring out new, better ways to delight our customers.


    To Be Successful In This Role, You Have:

    Pre- or Post- Sales experience using devops products with enterprise customers.

    Comfort coding in TypeScript, JavaScript, Python, or Go. Hands-on development work for customer implementations is required.

    A commitment to user experience, customer optimization and successful implementation of new products.

    Deep familiarity with core web technologies, Open Source technologies, and public cloud platforms.

    Exceptional customer management, presentation and communication skills.

    BS degree in Computer Science, or equivalent practical experience.

The company leads with an open source platform that embraces real programming languages, tools, and techniques, and offers an innovative SaaS product that helps team collaborate.
