Support virtual and in-person events with technical talks, demonstrations and workshops.
Work closely with product, engineering, and other cross-functional teams as the “voice of developers” to influence the future of products.
Engage with the Salesforce community on their own channels as well as Salesforce Developer Relations channels.

3+ years experience implementing on the Salesforce Platform with a creative technical mindset.
Deep understanding and passion for the needs of enterprise developers that build on Salesforce.
Certifications or equivalent hands-on technical experience related to development with Salesforce.
Excellent presentation, interpersonal, and communication skills and experience making complex technical concepts accessible and understandable.
Solid understanding and appreciation for the constant and rapid shift in how and where people consume content and share their experiences.
