About Mux
 
Mux (mux.com) is building the future of online video infrastructure. We started off by building Mux Data (mux.com/data) , a best-in-class performance analytics tool that’s trusted by developers at companies like PBS, Vimeo, and CBSi. Billions of monitored streams later, we launched Mux Video (mux.com/video) , a simple API to video hosting, encoding, and streaming. Take any video file or live stream and make it play beautifully at scale on any device, powered by magical-feeling features like automatic thumbnails, animated gifs, and data-driven encoding decisions. 
 
About the Role
 
As our first Developer Advocate, you'll inspire developers to build cool things with video, and help them use the Mux platform.

* Become a trusted voice in the world of video, by helping developers build better video (using Mux along the way)
* Speak and write for a developer audience, submitting talks, writing blog posts, and representing Mux at conferences.
* Help create a seamless onboarding experience for developers. API questions are never asked more than twice due to great API design, guides, and documentation.
* Contribute code to a rich ecosystem of plugins, SDKs, and open-source projects built on top of Mux

Who You Are:

* 2+ years of engineering experience and experience with multiple programming languages
* Experience speaking and writing for a developer audience
