Head of Developer Relations - USA
Inworld is a developer platform for building AI characters. We go beyond large language models (LLMs) and add performance, configurable safety, knowledge, memory, narrative controls, multimodality, and more. We’re focused on enabling character-based interactions for immersive experiences like video games, brand activations, and training simulations.
Inworld uses advanced AI to build generative characters whose personalities, thoughts, memories, and behaviors are designed to mimic the deeply social nature of human interaction. Our platform lets you create characters with personality and contextual awareness to keep them in-world and on brand. Integrations make it easy for developers to deploy characters into immersive experiences, while scale and performance are optimized for real-time experiences.
Inworld AI is funded by top-tier investors, including Kleiner Perkins, Intel, Microsoft, and Founders Fund, and a team of all-star angels - corporate executives, top VC funds' partners, and industry veterans from Riot Games, Twitch, and Oculus.
We’re looking for a Head of Developer Relations to help the creator and developer community flourish by sharing their passion and knowledge for storytelling, games, characters, AI, and Inworld.

By showcasing the potential of Inworld’s AI characters – at game jams, conferences, Discord, or elsewhere – you will enhance users’ skill sets and spark excitement about limitless possibilities for creativity with Inworld.
If you're the type of person that always has your finger on the pulse of gaming and AI, and are eager to talk shop with anyone and everyone about your favorite NPCs, the latest Discord chatter, or an upcoming game release, this may be the role for you.
