At our core is a strong conviction that Java can be an excellent language and platform for writing cross-device software for deployment into mobile app stores:
- Java is the number one language, known by many millions of developers already – this makes it easier to find developers to work on mobile applications.
- You can write one application for multiple platforms (iOS, Android, desktop, and embedded) – this means you don’t need to hire developers skilled in iOS and Android.
- Your developers only have to maintain one codebase – this means it is cheaper and easier to more rapidly iterate on product development.
What we need now is a developer advocate who can go out and spread the word about how great Java on mobile devices is, and how Gluon products and services can help. It’s not all a one-way street though – the other critical role for a Gluon developer advocate is to be able to listen to the community for problems they are facing, receiving feature requests and bug reports, and generally just being a helpful member of the community to ensure the success of everyone!
We need someone who can network with the community and our customers (in places like Stack Overflow, on Twitter, forums, and in private email), who can write sample applications and blog posts demonstrating functionality of Gluon products / services, and who can work within consultancy projects to identify areas where things can be improved for clients and ourselves.
Applicants will work remotely from their own preferred location, but will need to be available during their work day to communicate with other team members via Slack and email.
If you think you are a good fit for this role, please email us your resume / cover letter and we can chat further.
