The Role:

Clover is looking for a software engineer to be part of the team acting as primary support for the Clover App Market. As a Developer Advocate, you'll work closely with our third-party developers to answer questions about developing for the Clover platform. You must thrive on new challenges as you'll seldom face the same problem two days in a row.

This is a people-oriented and highly visible position.  It gives you the opportunity to work with a wide range of developers, from those new to the platform to industry vets.

Your primary role will be presenting technical information at developer events, working with other Clover teams to provide insight from your interaction with developers, and to advocate for developer needs. The Developer Advocate role also includes producing Sample Code, Technical Notes and Technical Q&As to provide our developer community with the tools they need to build world-class applications on the Clover platform. These responsibilities require strong engineering, people and time-management skills. Secondary responsibilities include working with developers to answer their code-level questions with a customer-friendly attitude.

Clover values creativity, innovation and initiative. We are looking for someone with the ability to react quickly and positively to change in a fast-moving environment. This role depends on your willingness to invest yourself in the success of the developer community, and do what it takes to help developers move their projects forward. There is tremendous opportunity for learning new technologies, and you must have a passion for pursuing and sharing that knowledge.

Key Qualifications:

  • Two to three years' development experience 
  • At least two years of Android experience

  • Excellent verbal, written and interpersonal communication skills
