  • Systematize identifying portfolio needs and connecting the right talent in the network with those opportunities, working cross-functionally with the SignalFire Talent team and other teams
  • Develop and manage a set of key metrics and analytics to track network growth, population by specialty, intros to portfolio companies, and successful hires

That said, these responsibilities are just the beginning! As we continue to grow, we encourage you to contribute wherever you observe opportunities in the business that align with your interests.

About you You’ll thrive as the Head of Developer Community if you:

  • Are stellar at relationship-building and communication, especially with in-demand technical talent

  • Experience with relevant tools and products such as CRMs, email campaign tools, analytics dashboards, SQL, IDEs, and programming languages
  • Active coding work and contributions to open source projects is a plus

If you don’t meet 100% of the above qualifications, you should still consider applying. Studies show that you can still be considered for a role if you meet just 50% of the position’s requirements.
