DevRelX Jobs

9/4/2021

Offering mentoring, support and guidance for developers and community members including during online or physical events like meetups, hackathons, contests. Working on tutorials and guidelines for developers.

Tendermint’s Ecosystem Development Team is seeking a talented and motivated Developer Relations (DevRel) Engineer who is a multi-faceted individual capable of wearing many hats.
The right candidate has extensive experience in software product development and is technically capable of testing untested software with a strong emphasis on developer user experience. Application developers are the Tendermint Inc customer base so the DevRel Engineer must speak the user's language fluently.

However, the right candidate's skills do not start and end at developer UX. You will work closely with the Marketing, Community, and Strategic Partnerships verticals within the greater umbrella of the Ecosystem Development team to support ongoing external-facing initiatives like interfacing with other engineers and community members within the Cosmos ecosystem.

We’re looking for a motivated and versatile Developer Relations Engineer who understands developer ergonomics and has great written and communications skills. Your work will be hugely impactful, as your tools will be used by a rapidly growing, international audience of developers.

Offering mentoring, support and guidance for developers and community members including during online or physical events like meetups, hackathons, contests.
Building simple applications with the Cosmos SDK and Starport stacks to test for common issues and give feedback on the developer experience of these platforms.
Testing, fixing and improving existing software.
Writing content (technical and non-technical) to be used for a variety of purposes including but not limited to video scripts, animations, social media posts, website copy, blog posts, interviews, articles, tutorials and press releases.
Contributing to website content discussions by providing accessibly written documentation for a well-defined audience.
Engaging with Cosmos ecosystem’s developers and community to collect feedback and reports findings back to the team for continued product improvement.
Absorbing a wide scope of understanding of the entire cryptocurrency/blockchain industry to inform product-market-fit.

We're looking for someone who has:
Proficiency in Go
Understanding of the Cosmos SDK, Tendermint Core, IBC implementations as well as of the Cosmos Ecosystem.
Strong engineering background with soft skills in customer relations, marketing, and communications.
Ability to multitask between several projects.
Strong comprehension of industry trends and product-market fit.

Nice to have:
Experience in deploying and maintaining server-side Go applications.
Working knowledge of networking and databases.
Passion about distributed systems and what cryptocurrency can do for humanity.
Ability to explain abstract technical concepts in an easy to understand manner.
