About Loom

Loom is on a mission to empower everyone at work to communicate more effectively, wherever they are. We are already trusted by over 12M users across 200k+ companies. Our customers are global and use Loom at work at world-class companies including Netflix, HubSpot, Atlassian, Juniper Networks, and Twitter.

Founded in 2015, Loom has raised over $200 million from top-tier investors including Sequoia Capital, Kleiner Perkins, Coatue, and Andreessen Horowitz.

The Role:

The loomSDK is enabling developers to add the power of async video to their own websites and applications. This role will serve as the founding Developer Advocate hire at Loom, building a core collection of evergreen developer-facing content while simultaneously organizing the first community of Loom developers. The Developer Advocate will play an active role in building the Developer Relations discipline at Loom, and serve as a champion for everyone from independent developers to engineers at large strategic partners. Success in this role would mean the creation of a vibrant community of third party applications of loomSDK functionality, along with a best-in-class developer experience driven by the research and feedback provided by the Developer Advocate.

* We are currently hiring remotely in the United States and Canada

  • Administer and grow Loom's developer-facing chat community (i.e. Slack, Discord)

What We're Looking For

  • 3+ years as a software engineer, especially at startups, platform companies, and/or SaaS companies

  • Demonstrated competency in creating developer content in multiple forms (code samples, blog posts, technical documentation, OSS projects, live streams, etc)

  • Previous history in successfully organizing a bottoms-up community (developer or otherwise)

  • Excitement about Loom's ability to transform communication at work

How We Work

Freedom and Flexibility: At Loom, we believe work is an act, not a place. When we disengage work from a location, we can accommodate a broad range of life choices. You can choose to work from home or while you travel. If you are in the Bay Area, you can drop by our San Francisco office on 2nd and Market St. when reopens in Fall 2021. We are able to hire across the United States and Canada* and are continuing to expand our international presence. And you are free to move within a country without any adjustment to compensation.

Engaging Workday: The key to an engaging workday is finding the right balance between different ways to work sync, async, text and video. Loom makes it easier for us to say what we mean without having to schedule a zoom meeting or struggle to find the right words. And using async communication allows us to free up time for deep work every day. We believe there's a place for sync time - often a conversation on Zoom is exactly what is needed. For team meetings, this ‘sync time’ is typically between 9AM-Noon PT given where the overlap of timezones where Loommates are located.

Work-Rest Balance: The way we balance the fast-paced demands of a high-growth startup and sustainability is making rest a priority. We offer a flexible PTO policy so you're able to take time off when you need it. We also go fully offline once a year between Christmas and New Year (and twice during the Pandemic). Rest is also part of the workday, not just during PTO. Taking a break for personal commitments, whether it's watching the kids or getting some exercise is natural part of the workday.

Social Connection: Relationships and connectedness matter. We are intentional about building trust and relationships through unique, shared experiences. Our virtual workspace keeps us connected day-to-day whether it's through Looms celebrating wins or our buzzing Slack communities. Loommates are able to meet in person with their teams at least twice a year purely for fun. We're also building local offices for those who want to work or meet in person, starting with San Francisco and New York City in Fall 2021.
