Developer Advocate at getEdify
United States of America

Thanks for considering Edify! Edify is the frictionless way to onboard software engineers. Our software allows managers to create customized onboarding plans in record time. Those onboarding plans help new hires ramp up quickly, get comfortable in their new roles, and feel confident on Day 1. Edify's big vision is to be the operating system for high-performing engineering teams. If you believe in a future where all software engineers, from junior to senior, are welcomed and allowed to be their best, we want you at Edify!

Edify is thrilled to be a part of Techstars Seattle 2021 class! We recently closed our seed round.

About the Role

In this role, you'll work closely and collaboratively with Product, Sales, and Marketing at Edify to nurture our earliest customers: code school and recent college graduates who are working towards their first software engineering roles. You'll help to advocate for their needs, support them in their career growth, and produce useful content for them as they use eddy to design their own onboarding plan and get their first engineering job. In addition to advocacy, you will also have shared responsibilities for customer support and content development. Ultimately, you will help developers and engineering managers achieve their goals via Edify's mission: to remove friction from every aspect of an engineering team's daily life, enabling them to build the best products in the world.
