Developer Educator at Kong


About the job

You’ll be Kong’s first official developer educator! We’re looking for someone to work with our existing developer advocacy and developer marketing teams to produce content that attracts developers to Kong and enables them to be successful across a variety of mediums.

That means writing blog posts, producing videos and presenting live streams. It also means keeping an eye on what content is performing well (and what isn’t) in order to inform where we focus our efforts going forward.

What You'll Be Doing
Showcasing all the things that Kong products can do!
Building a content calendar that showcases our OSS, Enterprise and Community contributions in a balanced way
Guide and work with external contributors to ensure we publish high quality educational content
Monitoring external communities like Stack Overflow, and Slack to identify new pieces of content to create
Collaborating with Developer Advocates, Product, Engineering, Marketing, and other colleagues to grow and improve the Kong content output in terms of variety and scope.

What You'll Bring
Empathy. For our customers, for the team, and for yourself.
2+ years of experience writing JavaScript, Python, Ruby, Java or a similar language
Strong communication skills, with the ability to explain complex concepts in a written manner and in person
Video production and editing experience (or the desire to learn)
Flexibility to adapt to new opportunities as they arise in a fast paced environment
Experience working remotely, or excitement to be part of a remote team

Kong Core Values:
Be Inclusive. We work together from anywhere to achieve our common goals. Our differences make us stronger.

Be Authentic. We are genuine, principled and confident without arrogance. Show respect and kindness, especially in tough moments.

Be Relentlessly Resourceful. We work with purpose, obsession and grit. It takes muscle to do hard things and doing hard things build muscle.

Be Customer Obsessed. We care. Customers are everything, we put them at the center of everything you do. We are all empowered to make an impact.

Be Curious. We value ideas over hierarchy. Never accept the status quo. We make bold bets, fail, and learn everyday. There is always a way.

Be an Owner. We are drivers not passengers and own the quality and outcomes of our work.
