Developer Educator United States

Company: Twilio

Because you belong at Twilio

The Who, What, Where and Why

As a Developer Educator at Twilio, your job is to challenge and empower developers to build the future of communications. We're looking for someone who can own the experience for educational resources to help our developer customers get their jobs done as painlessly as possible. In this role, you may find yourself rewriting existing content, building a new sample application, authoring new tutorials, shepherding API reference documentation out the door, assisting with the launch of a new feature, or reviewing the work of a fellow Developer Educator or our external contributors. You understand the importance of building empathy for Twilio’s developers, and will have opportunities outside the day-to-day to learn what developers experience firsthand, whether that is co-leading a Superclass training event or supporting a hackathon.

Who?

  • You're an educator at heart who loves teaching developers how to build amazing things. You have some experience producing technical documentation, either for an internal or external audience. Through writing technical blog posts, documentation, support tickets, or even READMEs you've realized the power — and challenge — of writing technical content. You’ve also felt that unique satisfaction when a developer learns something new thanks to what you wrote.
  • 2+ years experience as a web developer. Developer Educators are the first to try new APIs and products. You're not afraid to roll your sleeves up to write code snippets and sample applications. Even better, you can articulate ways they can be improved to make all developers’ lives easier. 
  • A meticulous eye for detail: accuracy, conciseness, consistency, and relevance. 
  • You’re a data-informed decision maker who experiments with new ways to help our customers learn our products faster. You ask questions, capture metrics, and use the results to advise where our success stands and opportunities lie.
  • You enjoy collaborating with teammates and multi-functional teams.
  • Your passion for technology inspires you to explore your curiosity; you love learning new things. 
  • You find a fast-paced, constantly iterative environment engaging and stimulating.
  • You can write proficiently in English.

What?

As a Developer Educator, you’ll live the Twilio Magic by:

  • Empower Others: Optimal educating developers is not achieved until they are empowered to take the next step. A devotion to our developer community and your partners is the key to our success.
  • Ruthlessly Prioritize: Documentation improvements can feel infinite. You must prioritize and measure which of your efforts make the biggest impact to Twilio’s developer community.
  • Be Bold: Learning is not one-size-fits-all. You bring new, inventive ideas to teach our customers about Twilio.
