About LaunchDarkly

LaunchDarkly is a Feature Management Platform that serves over 100 billion feature flags daily to help software teams build better software, faster. Feature flagging is an industry best practice of wrapping a new or risky section of code or infrastructure change with a flag. Each flag can easily be turned off independent of code deployment (aka ”dark launching”).

Job Description

As a Developer Advocate, you will join our Developer Marketing team, writing, speaking, and creating other forms of content to help expand the awareness of Feature Management. Our team helps make developers more successful by improving their software development practices. The content we provide covers both technical as well as human-centered topics. We are looking to expand our team with a Developer Advocate whose primary focus is writing but does not hesitate to take the stage (virtually or eventually in-person).

  • You will drive awareness about best practices for feature management and modern application architecture with the goal of influencing customer success.
  • Develop a persona as a trusted advisor in Feature Management and modern application development trends.

About You:

  • You have passion, curiosity, technical depth, and extraordinary written and verbal communication skills.
  • You are a creative and skilled storyteller.
  • You are able to converse with a broad range of programming language communities (Java, .NET, Node.js, Python, Ruby, iOS, Android, etc.), and have a real passion for modern application development trends at the intersection of development and operations.
  • You understand that the hardest parts about DevOps practices revolve around the people, not the process or technology.
  • You manage multiple deadlines and projects independently.
  • You have publicly available writing samples and/or recordings of presentations.

Bonus points if you also:

  • Experience in the DevOps space
  • Interest in producing short videos for a technically-savvy audience.

Specific Requirement:

  • 25% travel required (when travel is a thing again)
  • Must be authorized to work in the country you reside in (no visa sponsorship / relocation)
  • Must have published writing samples
  • Minimum 5 years work experience
