Developer Relations helps bridging the bap between the engineering teams building and those using these scalable services.Today our focus is to create a vibrant development community across all our locations within Schibsted and then scale it out to the reach the global development community of worldwide engineers.

Developer Advocates are the public interface between these two sides of the same coin. You will help develop a community that fosters communication and contributions both ways. You will evangelize and train the community on the latest features and services,  but you’ll also serve as a barometer and listen actively to feedback and needs of the development community.

As a Developer Advocate you will use your passion for technology in order to be early an adopter of new services and components, build client libraries in order to improve the overall development experience and you will provide valuable input to improve APIs and services as a whole.

You will also use your communication skills in order to constantly produce content, from detailed technical documentation to tutorials, sample applications, blogs, screencasts, etc. Creativity will be a fundamental asset in your ability to educate in a challenging and engaging form.

As part of a Developer Advocate function, you will have to interact with a lot of people from different background, culture and roles. Thanks to your listening and communication ability, you will engage in passionate conversations with an Engineer from Mexico as well as a CEO from Norway or a Senior Product Manager in London. You will also produce content in form of demo apps and in-depth presentations to be showcased at our internal and/or external Engineering conferences and events.

As part of your daily job you’ll consume a lot of content in the forms of articles, tutorials, release announcements and so on in order to keep pushing the whole organization toward the cutting edge of technology, always making use of your persuading ability rather than leveraging any specific authority.

As a Developer Advocate for our Global Components you will work closely with the global engineering community within Schibsted in order to make adoption of Identity, Payment, Experimentation and Fraud services easy and fun. You will be a domain expert in these areas and you should be able to address concerns from the users as well as funneling input to the Global Component team in order to make sure that these services become even more accessible and easy to use over time.As part of your duties you will be involved with evolving and maintaining client SDKs, will provide sample code and reference applications on how to use them, organize hackathons and workshops to promote adoption, as well as making sure that the documentation is clear and easy to consume.

Your scope of influence will go as far as to identify needs for new services that are currently lacking but that could provide a relevant competitive edge if available globally inside Schibsted.

You love to do all of this as part of a community: you enjoy using chat, discussion forums and other internal tools to foster discussion and fast feedback loops, so that people across Schibsted will reach out to you autonomously when they will have something relevant to share or report,  in a similar way to what you do in your free time when you participate in technical communities and meetups.
