Open Source Developer Community Coordinator

Location US-MA-Cambridge


Are you a strong developer who loves writing, speaking and teaching other developers about technology while taking a meaningful role in shaping the experience they have with the platform itself?


Join InterSystems and help us delight developers within the open source community. You will be the subject matter expert and evangelist for modern developers, focused on the end-to-end experience through the entire development cycle, and ensure that we meet the needs of current and future developers.   


As the Open Source Community Mananger, your mission is to educate and engage early adopters and the broader open source developer community around the InterSystems IRIS data platform and back it up with practical examples. That means doing whatever it takes to bring them into our developer community of developers and keep them actively and happily building within it while learning from their experiences.


This is a role that will allow you to contribute to building real software and also take a public-facing role representing the platform to developer communities. It is part marketing, part engineering and part community building with a healthy sprinkle of education and public relations.
