Join Checkly, a Gartner Cool Vendor, as the Senior Developer Relations Advocate and be at the forefront of the Monitoring as Code (MaC) movement, recently recognized in two Gartner Hype Cycles. We're seeking a dynamic DevRel who is deeply rooted in the DevOps, Platform Engineering, and SRE space to engage with new and existing users and customers including 1Password, Deno, Render, Sentry, and Vercel. Your role will be pivotal in building trust, credibility, and meaningful relationships within the developer community, while also serving as a key contributor to Checkly's as-code approach to modern synthetic monitoring and observability.

We care about building a team where people of all backgrounds are encouraged to do their best work. To achieve this we built a flexible, fully remote, and async-first startup environment with inclusive benefits.

Key Areas of Impact:

Advocacy: Be the voice of Checkly at meet-ups, conferences, podcasts, and streams. Your role is to represent the developer community within Checkly, ensuring their needs are heard and addressed.

Adoption: Guide our users through their journey from problem awareness to becoming Checkly champions. Show them how MaC workflows can solve their challenges.

Product Input: Your insights into the needs of developers will strengthen Checkly’s product-market fit. Actively seek and drive feedback to shape our offerings.

Enablement: Provide the resources that help developers implement Checkly's technology. This includes developer education, experience, and community engagement.

What You'll Do:

  • Identify and secure partnerships to extend Checkly's reach and influence communities.
  • Drive engagement in our Slack community and extend our influence by proactively reaching out and engaging with external channels and communities.
  • Collaborate with engineering teams to create compelling MaC demos.
  • Produce engineering-focused content and training materials that empower developers, build Checkly and MaC visibility, and ultimately grow our community.
  • Create educational video content to enhance Checkly's already thriving YouTube channel, focusing on Mac and related topics.
  • Shape and influence Checkly’s product and developer experience through feedback, education and code.

What you should have:

  • Love for technology as well as for doing things in public (learning in public, conference speaking, blogging, open source...)
  • Proficient in monitoring and observability, with publicly available work samples.
  • Experience in roles like software development or SRE, including hands-on experience with monitoring and production systems.
  • Skilled at advocacy and engagement of developers across channels.
  • Experience, patience and empathy to teach developers about best practices and new technologies, whether in-person, by writing tutorials or by recording a video.
  • Fluent in at least one programming language (e.g., JavaScript, TypeScript) and familiar with modern cloud infrastructure.
  • Excellent spoken and written English.
  • Ability to be autonomous and self-motivated in a remote, async-first work environment, while you also enjoy getting to know your colleagues and helping others.
  • Knowledgeable with "as Code" workflows and tools like Grafana, Prometheus, OpenTofu, and Terraform.

What we offer:

  • Become part of a fast-growing, international, and remote team where you can have a real impact
  • Fully remote, flexible work hours, async-first and transparent culture
  • Stock options
  • 27 days of paid vacation + your local public holidays

What we pay:

Fair, competitive, and transparent pay is very important for us. Therefore we work with a standardized salary calculator that includes several factors such as seniority level as well as location.

We found it very tough to benchmark this role because there's not much data on salaries for DevRels at Devtool startups with a good understanding of / background in DevOps/SRE. For that reason, you won't find the DevRel role in our pay calculator. Based on market feedback and the specific skills and experience you bring to the table, we are open to negotiating and expect the range to be between $100k and $170k.


If this sounds interesting, please apply! Studies by several different sources have shown that on average men will apply for a job if they meet 60% of the application requirements. Women/non-binary people will seek to match a much higher percentage of requirements before applying. If you're not sure you're the right fit, apply anyway and let us know what you bring to the table. We'd love to hear from you!

We're all about being transparent and setting clear expectations. That's why we've put together our hiring playbook. There you'll find a sneak peek of who we are and what you can expect in our hiring process. We recently also open-sourced our employee handbook!
