Here at ReadMe, we’re hiring our first Partnerships Engineer! We’re looking for someone who is excited about broadening ReadMe’s reach within the API ecosystem.

This role will be a mix of diving into specific integrations and helping customers in getting onboarded. A typical week could include being on the phone with a customer answering questions and doing a demo, fixing a bug for a new customer, diagnosing issues with an integration, and updating documentation.

We're a small team of humans (and one owl) working together to do big things, and we’re growing fast! That’s where you come in. Since we’re a startup, you’ll make a big impact on ReadMe both in the daily responsibilities of your role and beyond.

🦉 What we do

ReadMe helps more than 5,000 leading startups and tech companies build beautiful, personalized, and interactive developer hubs. If you’ve ever visited the developer docs for Intercom, Airbnb, or Notion, you’ve used ReadMe!

We love what we do because it’s so much more than just documentation. We’re providing tools for teams to build a better developer experience and make their products and APIs easier to use. We’ve got great support from our investors at Accel who led our Series A, and our interview process reflects the open, caring, and whimsical culture we want to maintain as we scale.
