Yext is hiring a

Developer Evangelist

New York, United States

The ultimate source for official answers about a business online should be the business itself. However, when consumers ask questions on company websites, too often they are left in the dark with wrong answers. Yext (NYSE: YEXT), the Search Experience Cloud, solves this problem by organizing a business's facts so it can provide official answers to consumer questions — wherever people search. Starting with the company website, then extending across search engines and voice assistants, businesses around the world, like Taco Bell, Marriott, and Jaguar Land Rover—as well as organizations like the U.S. State Department—trust Yext to radically improve the search experience on their websites and across the entire search ecosystem.

Yext is a Search Experience Platform. We need you to help guide Developers using the platform to build the best, most innovative experiences for our customers. As a Developer Evangelist, you are responsible for building, expanding, engaging and supporting our Developer community and Hitchhiker Programs. You will help manage our Developer site and Hitchhiker Training for developers, create open source example projects on our platform to help inspire developers, and connect with developers around the world about the Yext Developer Experience.

What You'll Do

  • Create and manage guides, tutorials, blog posts and other content for Developers
  • Create sample projects using our latest technologies to showcase the possibilities of the platform
  • Help to redesign and manage the Yext Developer Experience, including our Documentation site
  • Meet with and mentor developers at Partners or Customers
  • Develop an expertise in Yext’s product offerings, underlying implementation and technical design
  • Drive developer requirements and feature requests with Product and Engineering
  • Attend conferences or events to represent Yext in the larger developer community
