What do we do?

Paddle offers SaaS companies a completely different approach to their payment infrastructure. Instead of assembling and maintaining a complex stack of payments-related apps and services, we’re a Merchant of Record for our customers. That means we take away 100% of the pain of payment fragmentation. It’s faster, safer, cheaper, and, above all, way better.

We’re backed by investors including KKR, FTV Capital, Kindred, Notion, and 83North and serve over 3000 software sellers in 245 territories globally.

The Role:

The Developer Experience team ensures implementing Paddle is a delightful experience. We shape the Paddle API to be simple, but intuitive, and build product features that make getting started with Paddle as simple as possible. All of this needs to be supported by world-class documentation, examples and tooling and that’s where you come in.

We are looking for a content-focused developer advocate to work collaboratively with the rest of the Developer Experience team as well as a global team of product managers, designers, and developers. You’ll produce clear documentation and other supporting content from video scripts to blog content which will delight our customers and be critical to the growth of our platform

What you'll do:

  • Produce content that reaches potential and existing customers directly, from changelog entries to long-form guides, tutorials and articles

  • Work internal and externally to understand opportunities that DX has and how to make the most impact

  • Create compelling copy in collaboration with product owners, product marketing and design

  • Document features, enhancements and bug fixes by gathering and organising technical information from engineers, the product team, and other stakeholders

  • Guide the presenting and writing of API documentation

  • Implement technical documentation standards

  • Proactively gather feedback from colleagues and customers to keep all documentation and content relevant and up-to-date

We'd love to hear from you if you:

  • Want a hands-on content role with input into process and product direction

  • Have excellent written and oral skills in English, with great attention to detail, balanced with the need to be direct

  • Can demonstrate experience delivering API or developer-focused digital content such as product documentation, knowledge bases or similar

Everyone is welcome at Paddle

At Paddle, we’re committed to removing invisible barriers, both for our customers and within our own teams. We recognise and celebrate that every Paddler is unique and we welcome every individual perspective. As an inclusive employer, we don’t care if, or where, you studied, what you look like or where you’re from. We’re more interested in your craft, curiosity, passion for learning and what you’ll add to our culture. We encourage you to apply even if you don’t match every part of the job ad, especially if you’re part of an underrepresented group.

Please let us know if there’s anything we can do to better support you through the application process and in the workplace. We will do everything we can to support any accommodations needed. We’re committed to building a diverse team where everyone feels safe to be their authentic self. Let’s grow together.
