DevRelX Jobs

4/11/2021

We’re looking for a Developer Advocate who will focus their activities on adoption, education, enablement in collaboration with both our product and marketing teams. You’ll support our developer community through scalable tutorials, speaking engagements, & learn the working of our community programs

At Strapi, our mission is to empower millions of people to share content everywhere.
Traditional Content Management Systems have been around for years. But, today, content needs to be displayed on a ton of platforms (mobile applications, IoT, etc.). Even the way to create a website has drastically changed: developers use modern front-end frameworks (React, Vue, Angular, etc.).

For all of these reasons, a new kind of CMS appeared on the market to make content available on any platform (through an API): the Headless CMS.
That's why we created Strapi, the leading open-source Headless Content Management System. With 40k+ stars on GitHub, 5M+ downloads, and a worldwide community, Strapi is used by tens of thousands of companies such as IBM, Walmart, Nasa, and more.
