Senior Developer Advocate, Aws Iot

3+ months agoSeattle, WA


The Developer Advocate for AWS IoT Devices will join a creative, experienced and energetic organization that is responsible for helping to drive the development of IoT applications and the adoption of AWS services. In this role, you'll combine your unbridled passion and enthusiasm with your unmatched creativity to generate grass-roots attention and support for AWS IoT solutions among key industry innovators and technologists.
Ideally, you're someone who comes from an embedded development background, but has an unmet need to be on stage guiding the broader industry towards a technology you firmly believe in. You have immediate credibility with a wide range of hands-on technical audiences, such as software and hardware developers, architects, data scientists and IT administrators. You love to share your passion with others and exhibit good judgment in selecting strategic opportunities to do so.
You don't just want to be part of an industry movement, you want to be out front leading it.
