Role Description

As a Developer Evangelist, you’ll be part of a dynamic and growing team tasked with driving the technical excellence and scale of the Dropbox Platform. In this role, you’ll build on your technical and communication skills and experience in both engineering and business contexts. You’ll be responsible for attracting, engaging, and enabling developers to integrate best-of-breed collaboration solutions with Dropbox. You’ll act as a subject matter expert on the Dropbox APIs, creating best practice content and trainings for the community, while at the same time diligently advocating on behalf of our developers internally to help expand the functionality of the platform to meet their needs.
 
Whether you are a software developer with a desire to teach others, a humanities major who’s been coding on the side, or anywhere in between, if owning a problem excites you as much as owning its solution, we want to hear from you.

  • Be the voice of the developer internally during product discussions and evaluating priorities of bugs and feature requests
 
Requirements
