Tilt Dev is building the platform for multi-service software development. Imagine if every time you hit save, you could kick off workflows that run in the cloud, with results that are accessible across your team instantly and historically. How much more productive could you be? What dev collaboration tools have we not even thought of yet?
This is a big mission, and we’re a small team (8 people, based in NYC’s Union Square).
We’re software engineers and toolsmiths. We’ve built developer tools and consumer products. Nick and Dan (founders) met working at Google on projects like Google Sheets, Google Code, and others. We think cloud-native products like GitHub and Google Sheets are great because of the new workflows they enable. We’re excited to be working towards it.
We want to be a better company in an industry that’s been neither diverse nor inclusive. Each month, we give $100/employee to an org that’s making tech less toxic. We recognize “meritocracy” and “work hard, play hard” as culture smells.
Our First Product
Kubernetes’ fundamental insight is that you can’t operate multiple services by starting them up and forgetting about them. You need a control loop to monitor their status and fix problems.
Tilt believes that the same is true for dev environments. Bash isn’t the right tool for scripting a dev environment with multiple services. You need a tool that let’s you specify services, display their status, and fix problems.
As we build more extensions, we want developers to be able to set up the dev environments they need in an afternoon, whether it’s with first-party flagship extensions or ones they’ve hacked together themselves.
We need a Developer Advocate to help us build a community of people and tools that solve this problem.
What You’ll Do
Organize the Tilt community. Across Slack channels, meetups, Twitter, and wherever else it makes sense.
Learn from our community. What’s hurting them that brings them to Tilt? What’s still hurting after they pick up Tilt?
Fight for the user. Bring what you’ve learned to help us improve the product, by advocating within our company. What bugs are we dropping on the floor?
Tell Tilt’s story. Blogs, conferences, documentation, workshops, sample apps.
Create systems so the whole team contributes to telling Tilt’s story (it’s too much for one person)
Help us reach more users to become the ubiquitous tool for microservice dev.
Stay informed of what’s happening in tech. What’s the latest Kubernetes distribution? How is Go’s module system going to impact container builds?
Find communities we’re missing that would benefit from cloud-native dev. Does data science need Tilt? Is Tilt a game changer for game devs?
Our Ideal Candidate
Has been a dev advocate on a small- or mid-sized team. Because we’re small and you’ll be our only dev advocate, we think you need prior experience to succeed here.
Active in the Kubernetes community, or a related developer community.
Most of our team is in NYC and works on East coast US time. Our Head of Product is in Berlin. We think it will be important to collaborate across both of those timezones, even if you live elsewhere.
Even if you don’t have experience or interest in every bullet, we want to hear from you. There’s no perfect candidate, and we want to find the right fit, even if it’s different than we imagine. We especially would like to meet underrepresented/underestimated candidates.
About half our team is in NYC and working from home during the pandemic. About half is remote, each in a different city. We believe you can be successful in this role remotely.
Must be authorized to work in the US, and able to work at least 5 hours overlap with US Eastern time.
