About the role

ReleaseHub is looking for our first Developer Advocate to join our fast-paced software company. This is a full-time position with benefits, and it is fully remote within North America.

As our Developer Advocate, you will play a central role in the growth of ReleaseHub by reaching developers and DevOps teams where they are to inform and educate them about how Environments as a Service can improve their software delivery processes. In this role, you will be responsible for engaging with developers through technical content, demos, and community engagement. You will be the face of our company for developers, and you will be responsible for building relationships and fostering a sense of community among them. And as an early-stage member of the Release team, you will have the chance to make a meaningful impact on our company as we move to the next level of growth.

Key responsibilities:

  • Develop and deliver technical content, including blog posts, tutorials, and demos, to engage developers and showcase the capabilities of our product
  • Engage with developers through online forums, meetups, and conferences to build relationships and foster a sense of community
  • Collaborate with our product and engineering teams to gather feedback from developers and provide input on product development
  • Measure and analyze the effectiveness of your activities, and make data-driven decisions to optimize performance
  • Work closely with the product, engineering and customer success teams to both understand the technical underpinnings of our product, and to be a conduit of developer feedback and pain points back into the organization to influence product planning and development.


  • 3+ years of experience in developer advocacy, preferably in a B2B software company
  • Strong technical background and experience as a software developer
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills,
  • Demonstrable experience in community building, with the ability to create relationships and foster a sense of community through technical presentations, Meetup/user group organization and participation
  • Proven track record of creating and delivering engaging technical content
  • Experience in a fast-paced startup environment a plus.


ReleaseHub offers a fantastic array of benefits including company-paid Health, Dental, and Vision. As an employee, you will receive a monthly spending allowance of $650 that can be used for items such as lunch, internet/phone utility, training, and office supplies at your discretion, along with a generous stipend to outfit your home office. As a 100% virtual company, we worry about team members doing their best work rather than where they do it.

About ReleaseHub

ReleaseHub is the first EaaS (Environments-as-a-Service) Platform. Our mission is to give dev teams the simplest way to automatically create and manage ephemeral environments of complicated application infrastructures on every pull request. Our customers use us for staging environments, QA environments, developer environments, and running in production. Originally incubated at Y Combinator, ReleaseHub recently raised a $20M A-round led by CRV, Sequoia, and others.

Why you should join Release

Every company that is building software has to manage environments. This is time consuming and takes away from building things customers want. Most companies have one or few staging environments that become bottlenecks as code must run in staging before releasing to production. Applications are also getting more and more complex and development is getting harder to do on your laptop. Release solves these problems by making repeatable environments for every developer on every Pull Request.
