About Pagoda

Pagoda is the first-ever Web3 Startup Platform where developers and entrepreneurs can build, launch, and operate new blockchain-based products and services. As a primary builder of the NEAR Protocol, Pagoda delivers capacity, velocity, simplicity, and affordability needed to power tomorrow’s Web3 startups.

We are looking for an innovative, empathetic, and productive person who is excited about building the next generation of crypto startups, feels comfortable challenging opinions, and most importantly who shares with us the same desire to make the web free again.

We encourage people of all backgrounds to apply. Pagoda is committed to creating an inclusive culture, and we celebrate diversity of all kinds.

What You’ll Get For Joining:

  • Unlimited Annual Leave / PTO.
  • $2,000 Yearly Continued Education Reimbursement
  • $2,000 Home Office Setup Reimbursement
  • Yearly Company Retreats (2021’s was in Lisbon!)
  • Paid Holiday Week: the last week of the year
  • Paid Summer Wellness Week: the first week of July
  • Mental Health Support and access to licensed therapists through Spill, 100% paid by us

About The Role:

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

As a developer evangelist, your mission is to educate and engage early adopters and the broader developer community about the Pagoda platform by telling a compelling story and backing it up with practical examples. That means doing whatever it takes to bring them into our developer community and keep them actively and happily building within it while learning from their experiences.

Practically speaking, this means that you will wear a lot of hats. As the core protocol is developed, you will be a key interface with the early adopter community to make sure they will have a great experience on the platform when it is released. You’ll need to build developer tools, write demos/tutorials and otherwise do pretty much whatever it takes to ensure developers have a great experience onboarding to and using the platform.

Going forward, you will be a visible presence representing Pagoda in communities around the world by working directly with our events and community teams. This means everything from speaking to hosting workshops to supporting developers at events. You are the voice of the community to our internal team as well, helping to inform the development and education roadmaps.

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

What You'll Be Doing:

  • Build demos, SDKs and implementations to help bring early customers onto the platform.
  • Work with the team to produce the technical tools and educational materials necessary to create an amazing developer experience.
  • Represent NEAR as the technical voice at major events and conferences, including speaking and supporting the platform development.

What We're Looking For:

  • Ideally you’ll have 4+ years in software engineering at top companies.
  • Ideally you’ll have 2+ years in evangelism, education or other public-facing technical roles.
  • Experience working with blockchain technologies (eg DApp development).
  • A strong track record of speaking, presenting and teaching highly technical topics.
  • A clear passion for both creating software and engaging live communities.
  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or a related field is a must
Here’s What Our Interview Process Looks Like:

Depending on calendar availability, from the first stage to the final stage, we do our best to keep the entire process to under three weeks. Our interviews take place via Zoom and typically consists of the following stages:

  • Internal Recruiter Call (30 to 45 minutes)
  • Meet with the Hiring Manager (30-60 minutes)
  • Technical & Leadership Interviews (4 x 60 minutes) - these are not take home tests of puzzles!
  • Culture & Values Interview (30 to 45 minutes)

Please let us know if you require any special requirements for your interview and we’ll do our best to accommodate.

Locations: Anywhere in the world
