The Team: Developer Experience (DX): What we do & why

Our customers are those that build apps and services for their customers. A decade ago, this meant professional developers. Today our customers span start-ups, B2C companies, hobbyists and moon-lighters, students, designers, consumer, and commercial software companies to name but a few. Our customers define their success in many different ways but as a group, they innovate, they disrupt and they define the future of industries and markets.

Our mission is to help them succeed on top of the platforms we build. Every goal we’ve set ourselves in our 3-yr plan maps directly to winning in devices and cloud services. When we do this right, we secure our future as a company, we scale our impact far beyond the people on this team and we get to leave a legacy.

The Role: Technical Evangelist (Cloud Data Solutions)

Are you comfortable leading 1:1 conversations with customers, getting deep into their solutions, guiding them on how best to apply our technology to its benefit? Are you comfortable demonstrating our technology to a small to medium size audience? Are you equally comfortable engaging with the community, both on social media and attending meetups? If this sounds like fun then you might just be a Technical Evangelist. 

Technical Evangelists are responsible for talking to specialists about Microsoft and Open Source technologies that run on our Azure cloud platform and inspiring them to take action. You’ll be able to quickly and selectively go deep and hands-on on technology when required, learning continuously to keep your skills one step ahead. You will also have a deep understanding on how to build credibility with the developer audience. You will be able to demonstrate an ability to influence their perceptions about Microsoft’s offerings. This position will focus on the developer audience in general and more specifically on cloud data solutions.

The technical skillset for this role changes quickly and ongoing learning is key to being successful, especially given the new release cadence of cloud services and cloud connected devices. You’ll be able to learn fast, teach and inspire. Microsoft technologies, or open source equivalents, such as SQL Server, SQL Azure, HDInsight, Azure Data Lake, Stream Analytics, Machine Learning and PowerBI should be top of mind.
