Job Description

At Devpost our mission is to inspire the world's developers to build great software. We do that by powering nearly all in-person and virtual software competitions around the globe. We have a large, global network of software developers who discover and participate in hackathons on our platform in order to learn, build something great, and earn exposure. Organizations run online and in-person competitions to market their tools to our active developer community. Our customers include Amazon, Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and many others.

Our culture is centered around a close relationship with our community, and a dedication to continuously improve our offering and ourselves to meet their needs. Employees are empowered to explore and take ownership, and to make decisions in line with our metrics and mission. Our mission is firmly rooted in the belief that technology can bring about important change and improve lives.

In this role you will:

  • Have day-to-day responsibility for developing the product experience of developers and organizations on our web platforms -- including our new private employee hackathon product for teams
  • Have tremendous impact on a community of both inspirational developers and important customers
  • Work closely with our business stakeholders and our users and customers to understand how to best maximize business value through our product

  • Experience with usability testing
  • Experience working on an Agile team
  • Familiarity with what motivates software developers, given our business focus (not required, but nice-to-have)

The Culture & Location

We’re more focused on deliverables than meetings, but we work closely and openly together. Everyone’s opinion is respected and all ideas are given consideration. It’s a culture of meaningful work by dedicated, hard-working individuals, but the environment is relaxed and creative too. Our office is in lower Manhattan, but we have remote employees too.

Benefits and perks

  • Competitive salary, commensurate with experience
