Overview

Description

Shogun is on a mission to help brands create the best ecommerce experiences in the world, and in the process, become the world’s best remote company.

We’ve been growing rapidly since being in the Winter 2018 batch of Y-Combinator, and after recently closing our Series B funding round, are now in hyper-growth. Our teams are fully distributed and global, and with no offices, we are looking for team members who are comfortable with and motivated by the opportunity to work remotely.

We are hiring this role in the United States and Canada, and are interested in every qualified candidate who is eligible to work in these regions. However, we are currently unable to sponsor or take over employment visa sponsorship at this time.

What You’ll Do

Our Frontend software implementations can be complex. As a Developer Advocate, you’re the client-facing engineer for agency and customer developers. You’ll unblock technical issues during builds, and gather feedback to influence our product roadmap and build best practices. Essentially, you’re the conduit between our internal engineering teams and external engineering teams implementing our software. You’ll be able to get in the weeds of our code and also advocate for our customers in a strategic and influential way.

  • Ensure the technical success of our customers and agency partners during implementations
  • Use your coding skills to resolve any escalated technical errors
  • Determine the feasibility of implementation requests and write code to test potential integrations with the Shogun Frontend software
  • Collaborate with Agency Partner Managers to evaluate and approve new agency partners based on technical prowess
  • Build technical documentation for agencies and customers, and participate in trainings and demonstrations
  • Provide customer and agency developer feedback to our internal engineering and product teams to improve our products and the implementation process
  • Ignite excitement around Shogun’s Frontend product by building a developer network and engaging with external communities
