A day in the life of an AWS technical evangelist

December 12, 2018 / Scott Carey

It's a very modern job title that can attract derision, but there's a reason why the most successful cloud computing company on the planet employs a bunch of technical evangelists: they help translate vendor jargon to ease developer uptake - and without developer uptake there would be no company.Amazon Web Services (AWS) employs more than 20 technical evangelists. In the firm's words, these specialists should: "Engage with developers and architects around the globe, increasing awareness and adoption of AWS services. Evangelists help users understand how they can develop, deploy and operate applications that are scalable, secure and maintainable. The team supports grassroots, community-led technical knowledge-sharing through its work with AWS User Groups and AWS Heroes worldwide."
