Because you belong at Twilio
The Who, What, Where and Why
You are a web developer. You understand the basics of the HTTP request and response cycle. You've written enough code to have opinions on the different web frameworks of a specific programming language (Python, PHP, Node, C#/.NET, Java or Clojure, etc.). You can teach others. You understand that teaching sometimes requires much patience, but are driven by the satisfaction of seeing students understand. You are excited by technology and always seeking to learn more.
You will help us inspire and equip developers fuel the future of communications. You'll be an active participant in the web developer community wherever they gather online and offline. For many of those developers, you will be "the face" of Twilio -- the person they contact when they need help. They will feel very important because they know you. You'll attend and sponsor in-person events. You will speak at meetups and conferences. You will create online content that explains technical concepts to a global audience. You can rely on the rich 10 year history of this team to help you develop any of these skills that you want to master.
Additionally, you will work closely with the Japan Country Manager to layout a plan for how to grow Twilio brand awareness and usage in Japan. You will work with regional field marketing in Singapore to plan and execute events. You might even find yourself starting new communities in Tokyo to serve the Japanese developer in a new way. In a lot of ways you will be an entrepreneur leading the way for future developer evangelists in your country.
This position will be based in Tokyo . You can enjoy our free included perks: a free Kindle when you build your Twilio app, monthly Kindle book reimbursement, monthly gym reimbursement, bi-weekly All Hands and more.
We believe in serving developers where they are already gathering in real life so you should be comfortable travelling at least 25-50% of your time. We also believe that in order to do this job well, you need a balanced work and home life. We offer generous paid time off.
This is not a salaryman job. You will have autonomy to choose where and when you are most effective.
What you will also get to experience is a company that believes in small teams for maximum impact; that strives to balance work and home life, that understands that this is a marathon, not a sprint; that continuously and purposefully builds an inclusive culture where everyone is able to be the best version of themselves. We seek people who naturally demonstrate our values.
