  • Experience in a technical consulting or customer facing capacity.

  • Experience participating in online and offline developer communities and ecosystems (e.g., open source platforms, blogs, YouTube video series, tech conferences, hackathons, meet ups, technical teaching, and training).

Responsibilities:

  • Manage and participate in developer discussion forums, troubleshoot and address the concerns raised in these forums, and educate developers on best practices for effective integration of Google developer products.

  • Work on the core source code of Google's products with other engineers to identify, reproduce, and fix issues that are affecting our users.
