Overview

You’ll join our team to build a thriving developer community. We’re UI engineers who build tools for fellow UI engineers. We care about the craft of development and will only ship work we can be proud of.

A community builder combines deep empathy for UI developers with outreach and organization. You’ll work on everything from engaging developers 1-on-1 to designing activation programs and planning events.

To date, our community has swelled to tens of thousands of developers organically. At the scale of a massive open source project, it’s tricky for folks to have a sense of belonging. That’s where you come in.

  • Live in GitHub issues/PRs, Discord, email, Twitter, and maintain our community CRM
