If you love the JAMstack, keep up with modern development practices and are involved in the web development community, this could be the perfect role for you.

This is a key role at Forestry as you’ll not only spread the word about Forestry & the JAMstack, but will be part of a core team developing our dev relations & marketing efforts from the ground up. There is a lot of room for growth in this role.

    • Interact with developers in the Forestry.io community and other online communities
  • Work with the product team to help guide the design of new features
  • Create technical docs or assist with the writing of technical docs

To Be Successful In This Role, You’ll Need

  • Strong written and spoken communication skills
  • Willingness to travel and speak publicly (see intro paragraph if you’re not yet comfortable speaking publicly)
  • Enthusiasm and passion for the web and web development
  • Experience in Web development, including:
    • Legacy CMSs (sorry) such as WordPress, Drupal, etc
