Ably are looking for a Developer Relations Community Manager to join their team.

Location: Remote, UK based, as travel to our London hub will be required from time to time.

Team: Developer Relations, Marketing

Working at Ably means helping to build the infrastructure and technology that will power and shape the future of the internet. Chatting on WhatsApp, hailing an Uber, asking Alexa what the weather will be like tomorrow, working in the same Google Doc as your colleague: all of these things rely on complex, behind-the-scenes realtime infrastructure. That’s what Ably provides for companies like HubSpot, Toyota Racing Development, OfferUp, and Hopin.

We now live in a remote-first world where realtime digital interactions underpin our daily lives. In the near future, Autonomous Vehicles, IoT devices (e.g. connected fridges or environment sensors), and AI-powered experiences will be the norm. But new infrastructure is required to power it all.

The opportunity in front of us is immense. Our mission is to become the definitive realtime infrastructure of the internet while powering and accelerating adoption of realtime user experiences. We’re on track. Everyday we deliver billions of realtime messages to more than 200 million people in 80 different countries across web, mobile, and IoT platforms. But we can’t rest yet. In five years we want to reach one billion people everyday.

In this role

You’ll be a key member of the Developer Relations team, helping us to organize, orchestrate and engage communities.

  • We strive to make Ably the go-to solution for real time data

  • We build demos, write and speak about Ably and associated technologies to inspire, teach and guide potential users with best practices and interesting technologies

  • We embrace, contribute and advocate for the open movement of source code, data, and protocols

  • We build relationships with aligned technologies to strengthen our offering and reach

As part of our continued growth we are looking for a dedicated Community Manager to join the DevRel team to help us make this happen.
