As a Developer Advocate on the Strategics team, you are an accomplished developer ready to peer, mentor, and lead development teams as they solve their enterprise's most critical data issues. You are known for your deep MongoDB expertise (or familiarity with other data technologies and the ability to quickly become proficient in MongoDB), your insight into developer enablement programs, and your ability to guide development teams in the adoption of new technologies. You’re an excellent public speaker and are comfortable delivering live enablement sessions to technical audiences of 40 to 400.
