Community Manager - Wix Velo at Wix
Velo by Wix - an open web development platform used by professional web developers, freelancers and agencies worldwide to create advanced web presence at speed. The Velo marketing team initiates and creates strategic partnerships with relevant organizations, businesses, and developer communities targeting web developers worldwide. Our job is to leverage these partnerships to expose new audiences to Velo, educate them, increase Velo’s user base/community and contribute to its business growth. Our activities include education-based partnerships, events, partner certification and more.
The Velo developer relations team is looking to grow Velo users, at scale. We are looking to activate, engage and grow the community of Velo developers and bring best-in-class benefits and support from the parent organization. We are looking to hire a community manager to help us bring together Velo developers, agencies and freelancers utilizing the capabilities of the Velo developer platform. The role is focused at and based out of North America.
While the U.S. Wix team is WFH during Covid-19, at this time we are seeking San Francisco-based candidates who are able and willing to work on-site once we return to the office.
A tech-savvy community builder. You understand the value of nurturing, growing a rapidly expanding community. You have a keen sense of driving programs, events and engagements that bring the community together – online and offline. You are always thinking about the user (aka Velo developer) and how we can do more by bringing the best of Wix to this thriving community. You don’t lose sight of the larger mission but you’re equally obsessed with the details.
You have previous experience in community building and you understand what it takes to create, nurture and develop communities. You also have a deeper understanding of tech platforms and self-service software.
You’re someone who’s not afraid of calculated risks, you’re data-driven and you always think about ways to make the Velo developer community a world-class showcase. You are savvy in driving online engagements, platforms and equally comfortable hosting or participating in conferences, meetups, etc.
As a Community manager, you will:
● Develop detailed, data-driven plans to identify Velo developer hotspots and create custom plans to organize engagements – locally (where the developers are) and at a national level
● Give voice to the Velo developers community and create channels for engagement: help Velo developer advocates, marketing managers, R&D groups get firsthand feedback and engagement by hosting curated events (online/offline) and other channels
● Work with our strategic technical partners and combine forces to create joint community engagements. These will bidirectional events that include hosting joint community events, 1st party events and partner conferences
● Manage our online community presence by creating/publishing upcoming events, webinars, engagements and bring in industry leaders such as Velo developer advocates, marketing experts, R&D/product leaders to drive transparency, guidance and engagement that will ultimately increase involvement, engagement and long-term platform commitment
