Vonage Product Management Mission: Vonage API is the emerging leader in the $100B+ cloud communications platform (CPaaS) market. Customers like Airbnb, Viber, TikTok, Snapchat, and many others depend on our APIs and SDKs to connect with their customers all over the world. As businesses continue to shift to a real-time, customer-centric communications model, we are experiencing a time of impressive growth.

 

Why this role matters

At Vonage, we believe we’ve just scratched the surface of enabling developers to embed communications into any apps or devices using APIs. 

As a Ruby on Rails Developer in the Product & Developer Experience team at Vonage, your primary responsibilities will be to use a combination of insight and metric-driven decisions to support the needs of developers on the API Developer Platform. You’ll develop functionality for the publishing platform Station, help enhance other tooling, and contribute to a phenomenal overall developer experience.

You will be responsible for executing the development of Station and managing contributions from other team members and the open-source community. To give you an idea of the work you’ll be doing, this stream includes more details on the development of Station. Additionally, two of our significant projects last year were internationalizing our documentation and building a detailed feedback system. You’ll be working as part of a remote-first team that has years of experience with virtual collaboration across multiple countries and timezones.
