Almost the best job in the world: Technology Evangelist, Amazon Web Services, Asia Pacific

I love my job. I was hired by Amazon more than four years ago, thanks to a virtual Church and a lot of work. Funny, when you think about it :) This is the face I had when I finished the last of fifteen interviews:

After almost two years in Europe, and two and a half years in Singapore, I’m now ready to move to San Francisco: same role, different geography.

This means that there’s an opening for a job which is ALMOST THE BEST IN THE WORLD: Technology Evangelist, Amazon Web Services, Asia Pacific.

Please carefully read the job description above, before applying.

Ideally, you have hands-on experience using AWS (or can learn quickly) and have excellent communication skills to share your knowledge with a diverse audience of customers, from developers to technology executives. You have immediate credibility with developers at all levels, from students to CIOs. 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.

If you think you’re the right person for this job, please apply. If you love the job, but you’re not the right person… Please, don’t waste other people’s time. This is a very unique job, a very unique opportunity, which requires a special set of skills. If you’re not technically good, and you don’t have good communication skills… Don’t apply. If you have no experience… Don’t apply either. We need someone with some proven experience.

If you’re not the right person, but you know someone who could be, let him/her know!

If you have questions, please email me at: simone at amazon.com.

Good luck!
