Amazon Web Services (AWS) is committed to supporting the global Salesforce developer community and we are seeking a creative and passionate Sr. Developer Advocate to empower millions of Salesforce developers with knowledge and resources to build experiences that customers love. As a Sr. Developer Advocate within the Industry & ISV Solutions team, you will help us to deliver on our mission to support any enterprise workload through cloud-native services for industry verticals, integration, and compliance. You will demonstrate how using cutting-edge technologies, from the breadth of AWS services to the latest Salesforce technologies, can help developers to solve challenging problems. You will write code, develop demos, create content, deliver presentations, and evangelize the use of AWS and Salesforce together, both online and in-person. The ideal candidate is both a hands-on developer and a big thinker who can identify opportunities to improve the developer experience, grow the community, and increase engagement. We have ambitious goals for our developer program, and you will be supported by teams across AWS - Engineering, PM, Solution Architecture, and Marketing.
