About the role

Expo lets developers write React and JavaScript to create apps that work natively across the web, Android, and iOS. We are looking for a Developer Success Engineer to help us manage our open source tools and repositories, provide enterprise-level assistance to our customers, and make choosing Expo be one of the reasons for our customers’ success.

Responsibilities

As a Developer Success Engineer, you will:

  • Diagnose customers’ technical issues with root cause analysis and resolve the issues by implementing fixes in Expo tooling when applicable or otherwise explaining how the developer can fix the issue in their own application code.
  • Act as the primary relationship manager for enterprise customers, including helping existing and prospective teams understand how to use Expo tools and EAS in the way that helps them achieve their product goals.
  • Distill developer feedback into suggestions for how to improve and prioritize work on the Expo platform and services. Work on these projects when well suited for your skills, experience, and goals.
  • Assist in articulating and communicating technical issues to other engineers when they are better suited to work on them.
  • Contribute to Expo SDK, CLI, and other tooling.
  • Build and maintain systems to assist the Developer Success Engineering team in their various responsibilities.
  • Work with partner developer tools organizations such as BugSnag, Realm, Sentry, and Stripe to provide first-class integrations.
  • Craft documentation and learning materials.
  • Help oversee GitHub issues, public forums, and Discord, and identify and empower community contributors.
  • Run workshops and give presentations at conferences such as App.js Conf and meetups like React Native London.

Why work at Expo

Every day, millions of people use apps made with Expo — from public health apps to food delivery apps to dating apps to Bitcoin wallets. Great organizations like Brex, Flexport, Insider, Blackline, Cameo, PrettyLittleThing, Pizza Hut, and the EPA trust Expo to help them build top-notch application software in record time. When we make improvements to the Expo libraries and tools, hundreds of thousands of developers benefit and build better software faster for millions of their users.

Everyone on the Expo team works on something important because we have a small team and we do a lot of things. We strive to create an environment where everyone is set up to do their best work. Each person on the team has a lot of flexibility and autonomy to work the way that works the best for them.

  • Have deep, reflexive empathy
  • Can independently make decisions and come up with new, effective ideas on how to improve the process of creating and distributing application software.
  • Able to quickly respond to your coworkers in order to make sure Expo can make quick, continuous progress.
  • Good at getting unstuck and helping others get unstuck.
  • Great at helping users feel that they’re very capable after interacting with you.
  • Understand why well-designed tools and APIs are important, and can build well-designed and well-tested features quickly.
  • Are good at effectively communicating your ideas and code through documentation, GitHub comments, blog posts, and other public writing.
  • Have worked on and published quality Expo, Android, iOS, or React Native apps to the stores.
  • Understand the problems and aspirations of Expo’s users, which are problems you think of on a daily basis.
