Head of Developer Community at Ethyca

US-Based Remote

About the job

In our mission to ensure that engineers have the tools they need to bake privacy into existing SDLC processes, adoption, engagement, and advocacy is essential for success. We’re seeking someone with a proven track record in growing community in technical spaces, as you'll be building from a blank canvas.

This means you are at home engaging with developers where they congregate and have the technical know-how to engage productively. It also means you can interface with a wider content, design, and marketing team to create assets that will add value and increase engagement in the space. And perhaps most importantly, it means you’re a builder; someone who enjoys wearing the many hats needed to grow a community from its earliest stages into a dynamic and diverse ecosystem.

What You Will Do
Build a dedicated community for privacy engineering developer tools, educating data and software engineers on the value of privacy by design and privacy as code
Help define open source community management strategy, processes, and goals
Engage and communicate with our budding community, triage issues for escalation as needed to product & eng
Work with content creators and designers to help produce value-add content for community discussions and thought leadership in the privacy engineering space
Own project management for community-oriented event activations

Requirements
3+ years in a technical role focused on data engineering and/or software development: Your technical skills must be sufficient to authentically engage with our community. Our products serve teams of data engineers and software engineers working on the sharp end of operationalizing privacy in large distributed systems. You will have enough engineering experience to understand the challenges these communities face and how our products help to solve them.
Experience with cross-functional collaboration: an independent yet collaborative operator, your experience managing community independently in a complex, highly technical space means you’ve worked with engineering, marketing, design, and product teams and you know how and when to engage each.
Growing community from scratch requires demonstrable experience as a builder. If you love bringing people together to solve problems and architect solutions, and have done it before, you might be the perfect fit.
Life in a fast-growing startup requires a different skill set than in a later-lifecycle company. You will need to be comfortable working independently and stepping outside your comfort zone to tackle new challenges as they arise. It doesn’t mean you have to have worked in a startup environment before, but you do need to be able to show evidence of being a self-starter who enjoys stepping up to take charge and make decisions where needed.

Benefits
Competitive cash and equity compensation
100% medical and dental insurance coverage for you and your dependent(s)
Remote-friendly office hours and vacation policy
Sponsored company lunches and events
Parental leave and 401K plan
