Senior Developer Advocate

Interested in working on cutting-edge blockchain technology and creating equitable access to the global financial system? Since 2014, the mission-driven team at the Stellar Development Foundation (SDF) has helped fuel the tremendous growth of the Stellar blockchain network, an open-source platform that operates at high-scale today. Developers and companies around the world build on it, and the SDF team is expanding to support the rapidly growing and changing Stellar ecosystem.

The launch of Soroban, the new smart contracts platform for Stellar, brings a wealth of opportunity for innovation, and when you join SDF as a Developer Advocate, you will be a part of a team that's leveraging that opportunity to increase developer participation in order to bootstrap the ecosystem of tools, protocols, dapps, and educational resources necessary for Soroban to succeed.  

Focusing on in-person evangelism, you will design, develop, and execute strategies to grab developer attention, to attract and motivate early adopters, and to show the world what’s possible when native smart contracts meet Stellar's unparalleled access.  

In this role, you will: 

  • Develop and execute strategies for in-person activations that attract new developers to experiment with Soroban and Stellar
  • Give keynotes, run workshops and tutorials, and represent SDF at conferences and other in-person events
  • Create course material, tutorials, talks, and other content to educate, onboard, and engage developers, and encourage community developers to do the same.
  • Seek out devs in other ecosystems for whom Soroban may be a good fit, and build relationships to bring them into the ecosystem
  • Drive participation in existing developer-facing programs, such as Stellar Startup Camp and the Stellar Community Fund

You have: 

  • 5+ years of professional experience in developer relations, developer marketing, or engineering
  • A passion for technology, and the ability to articulate technical concepts to diverse audiences
  • A strong desire to build things and explain how they work, and a portfolio to prove it
  • Poise, presence, and experience with public speaking
  • Practical experience with JavaScript building full-stack React applications
  • Practical experience with Wasm- or EVM-based smart contract development 
  • A love of travel (since this role will require a fair amount)

Bonus Points if:

  • You love Rust
  • You’ve written and deployed smart contracts on multiple blockchain networks
  • You know your way around blockchain analytics
  • You have a history of participation in the Stellar ecosystem
