Java Developer for Technical Content (Contractor) Worldwide

Company: Twilio

Because you belong at Twilio

The Who, What, Why and Where

Twilio is seeking a Java Developer for Technical Content who will enable developers to teach others how to get started and build with Twilio. You'll primarily execute this work assisting developers online by helping them to edit and publish high quality tutorials. 

Who?

We're looking for a developer who understands how to help other developers explain complicated programming topics in ways readers can easily understand.

  • You are a developer. You can empathize with the joy of "It worked!", the frustration of, "why's it doing that?" and the hard work of debugging to get Java code working the right way. 
  • You love to write clean code and use it to tell a clear narrative to readers.
  • You have a clear understanding of how Oracle, Google and the open source community are evolving the JVM and the impact to developers in this ecosystem.
  • You enjoy consistent work each day rather than in sporadic fire-drill mode.
  • You have the self-motivation to proactively work with programmers that are writing Java tutorials rather than responding reactively to inbound tasks.

What?

As a Java Developer for Technical Content, you will:

  • BE INCLUSIVE: Collaborate with developers who do not work for Twilio to enable them to publish code-first Java and JVM-based language tutorials on the Twilio website.
  • BE AN OWNER: Own the Java version of the Voices community page, which will be the equivalent of the twilio.com/php page that was launched for PHP developers.
  • BE BOLD: Write your own code tutorials and publish them on the Twilio website to keep your own programming skills sharp.
  • EMPOWER OTHERS: Make Java developers from our community the heroes of their companies.

Why?

The Developer Voices' team executes on a mission to prompt and rally developers to build the future of communications. We have published hundreds of programming tutorials by programmers and worked to have their polished content read by millions of developers worldwide.
