Save to Kiter
What Messagebird is looking for in applicants

Transform the communications world! Location? You decide!

We’re proud (and excited!) to be transforming the global communications landscape through our Omnichannel Platform-as-a-Service (OPaaS). 

Our Birds choose where they work from in the region we’re hiring in — this could be from one of our MessageBird hubs (Amsterdam, Singapore or Bogota) or remotely so long as it’s within a complementary timezone.... Want to work from a rural retreat? Sure, no problem! How about a bustling city getaway for a few weeks? Go ahead!

We understand that “life happens” and give you the freedom to choose the best environment for you to “get s**t done”. We expand our flock without geographical restrictions. This allows us to attract and assemble an industry leading team from a huge variety of backgrounds & cultures,  making us more nimble, creative, and efficient!

About Pusher 🤩


Pusher powers connection. We are a developer tools company inventing realtime APIs to power communication and collaboration apps all over the world. Our easy, reliable platform provides developers everything they need to build scalable and interactive apps. If you read the Financial Times, send email with MailChimp, collaborate on inVision, or order food on DoorDash, you are using Pusher every day.


Your mission 🚀


Our user base is growing astronomically and we are building with them in mind. We’re looking for a creative and innovative Developer Advocate to be a champion for Pusher and our users, helping them to explore and expand their use of our tools.


What you’ll be doing ✨


You’ll act as our trusted voice for developers by engaging closely with them online and at community events, providing expert feedback to the rest of the company and building awesome content resources to help them be successful. You’ll become a Pusher expert; exploring and experimenting with our tools to create exciting projects which demonstrate their power, including tutorials, articles, video content, demo apps, talks and more.


You day to day will look like:

  • Engaging with the community via social and technical platforms and at events to champion Pusher products and gather their ideas and feedback
  • Providing feedback to the engineering team on industry movement and real-world product use
  • Delivering efficient and effective technical content which speaks to and inspires our users (writing articles, producing tutorials and demos, and engaging with events as a representative and speaker)
  • Experimenting with the Pusher tools to build sample apps and projects which demonstrate their power

You will work closely with all departments at Pusher. You’ll collaborate with the product, engineering and communications teams to advocate for the community internally, set roadmaps and define and launch new features and resources.

  • Familiarity with major JavaScript frameworks, PHP/Laravel/Java and some broad knowledge of mobile development tools and frameworks. Knowledge of and experience using Pusher’s APIs is a major bonus!
  • You understand engineering best practices
  • You love to learn: you’re someone who is always looking for new places to find answers and enjoys regularly engaging with forums, attending conferences and speaking to new people to share ideas
  • You can demonstrate your experience designing exciting and engaging technical content (articles, videos, documentation and demos)
  • You’re comfortable building relationships with multiple stakeholders across teams (marketing, engineering and customer success) to report on feedback and trends
