OK – perhaps not an immediately attractive proposition, but how would you like to come and work in the candy store with a focus on Longhorn and Avalon? We’ve just opened a new position for immediate hire here in Redmond as a Longhorn & Avalon Technical Evangelist. I’m really excited – there is so much in the way of cool work going on right now, and there’s just not enough people to do it all! Our team is a fantastic place to work – I’m honestly not exaggerating when I say that I can’t imagine a finer place to be, with great managers, a fun working environment and some really exciting leading-edge products to be working on.
To do this job effectively, you’ll need to be someone with a developer background who enjoys communicating with others and has an infectious enthusiasm for technology. The job involves working with some of our top ISV and enterprise customers, building demos and other content, distilling complex technologies into concrete business scenarios, and having an influence on product strategy and direction. In this role, technical skills are essential, but they’re not enough alone – a strong sense of the dynamics of the software economy, great presentation skills and an ability to be credible with and influence senior management are also essential. In this job, you’ll work harder than you’ve ever done before, but you’ll wake up every Monday morning with a spring in your step and a pride in what you’re doing!
