From the code to the values, we are Ethereum-aligned. We believe Ethereum has the potential to solve some of humanity’s most crucial coordination issues. Since our initial inception as a non-profit research group, we have sought to scale both its technology and values.

At present the most pressing bottleneck to the growth of Ethereum is its performance and scalability. We are building the most elegant solution to this problem. We do this out in the open because we believe in open source and its ability to accelerate innovation.

Not only does the Optimism network improve Ethereum's performance by orders of magnitude, the profits generated from doing so are donated to Ethereum public goods. This ethos is also core to the identity of OP Labs: the future of the open internet is too important to be left to chance. By operating as a Public Benefit Corporation, OP Labs is able to align its private incentives with public good and take positive-sum steps to provide a sustainable future for the internet.

OP Labs is seeking an enthusiastic Developer Advocate to join our Developer Relations team. As a Developer Advocate you will play a crucial role in nurturing developer relationships, providing technical guidance, and advocating for developer needs within the Optimism ecosystem, including developers for OP Mainnet and the OP Stack. You will work closely Product, Engineering, Dev Support, and Marketing to ensure devs have the resources they need to succeed, while also contributing valuable insights to shape our products and services. If you're a technically savvy advocate with a passion for fostering developer success and building meaningful relationships, we’d love to meet you.


  • Serve as a trusted technical advisor to developers, assisting them in understanding and effectively using OP Labs' products.
  • Collaborate with other DevRel team members to create and execute developer-focused initiatives, such as hackathons, meetups, and discussion groups.

  • Maintain relationships with key developers, influencers, and advocates in the Optimism ecosystem, fostering a strong and engaged developer community.
  • Identify and nourish new developer communities forming on Optimism, such as onchain gaming, decentralized social, and OP Stack devs.


  • 3+ years of experience in developer relations, technical advocacy, or a related role, with a focus on technical content creation and engagement with developers.
  • Strong technical background with a solid understanding of web3 software development, blockchain platforms, and related domains. This role will regularly involve writing code.
  • Proven experience in creating technical content, such as tutorials, documentation, and code samples, that resonates with developers.
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills, with the ability to convey complex technical concepts clearly and effectively.
  • Active engagement in the web3 developer community, with an understanding of developer needs and challenges.
  • Collaborative and team-oriented mindset, with the ability to work effectively with cross-functional teams and external stakeholders.
