We make open source software that helps developers build great apps, which is why understanding our community's needs is important for crafting an excellent Apollo developer experience. Every day, tens of thousands of developers worldwide rely on our blog posts, tutorials, and social channels to learn and engage with the Apollo platform. Your work will have a huge impact on how we help developers build apps with Apollo.

We're looking for a developer advocate to inspire and equip product engineers with the knowledge they need to be successful with Apollo. You'll accomplish that goal by working closely with the developer community to execute high-quality content and manage a global network of Apollo contributors. At Apollo, we value empathy and kindness, so you'll also be soliciting feedback from our community members to understand how we can solve their pain points.

What You'll Do

  • Create apps with Apollo: Build and maintain apps to teach relevant topics, such as state management or TypeScript, in a creative way to product developers

  • Developer content: Craft high-quality blog posts, tutorials, videos, and conference talks for both first and third-party publications while measuring the effectiveness of your work

  • Open source: Contribute code to Apollo open source projects and connect with Apollo community members

  • Community leadership: Manage a global network of Apollo engineers by engaging contributors worldwide to organize Apollo events in their cities and spread the word about our platform

  • Product strategy: Influence the open source roadmap based on data-driven feedback from your interactions with the developer community

  • Inspire developers: Understand the struggles developers face when developing modern apps and encourage developers to rally behind Apollo as a solution if it meets their needs

About You

  • You've worked as a JavaScript engineer on a product team before and you've experienced the pain points React developers face when writing data fetching code. You can explain the value prop of GraphQL to product developers.

  • You have a recently-updated public portfolio of work, including blog posts, tutorials, and open source contributions, that you're proud to share with the world. Please include links to your work in your application.

  • You're passionate about growing and engaging inclusive developer communities. Through in-person and online channels, you meet developers where they are and actively listen to them to understand their perspective.

  • You enjoy teaching others about technology and you love celebrating their success when they learn something new.

  • You measure the effectiveness of your work with concrete data, such as impressions, downloads, and NPS scores. You're skilled at prioritizing opportunities which will have the most impact on your goals.

  • You're comfortable traveling abroad to at least 1 conference per quarter to connect with Apollo developers at in-person events.

This position can be done from our San Francisco headquarters or anywhere else in the world.

Apollo is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace dedicated to pursuing and hiring a talented and diverse workforce.
