Job Description

Do you love getting hands-on with technology and sharing your enthusiasm for cloud computing with the wider tech community?

The Developer Advocate for Amazon Web Services will join a creative, experienced, and energetic organization that is responsible for helping to drive the development and adoption of AWS services.

In this role, you’ll combine your technical skills, passion, and enthusiasm with your unmatched creativity to generate grass-roots attention and support for AWS among key industry innovators and technologists in Nigeria and West Africa, as well as globally.

Ideally, you’re someone who comes from a software and/or infrastructure background but has an unmet need to be on stage guiding the broader industry toward a technology you firmly believe in.

You have immediate credibility with Startups, Developers, Architects, IT Managers, and/or 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.

Key Capabilities:

  • As a Builder, you will dive deep to deliver audience-focused technical presentations, and curate and build actionable technical content. You’ll keep your technical skills updated constantly, always maintaining a baseline understanding of the latest core AWS services, and then adding breadth and depth as required by their specialty or audience needs.
  • As a Strategist, you’ll keep the “big picture” in mind and always look for opportunities to maximize customer value, constantly driving efficiencies in processes and mechanisms.
  • As a teacher, you’ll provide technical guidance for Builders to be successful with the cloud, simplifying the complex and tailoring your message to the needs of the audience.
  • As an Ambassador, you’ll build long-term relationships with Builders and their communities, feeding back insights to help shape AWS’s go-to-market strategy, programs, and products. You’ll also identify and develop external AWS advocates, helping to scale our programs.
  • As an Influencer, you’ll use your unique personality and authentic content to help attract Builders to AWS and keep them engaged and inspired to Build.

Key Job Responsibilities

  • Gaining industry recognition and credibility as a regular attendee and speaker at AWS and third-party technology conferences, shows, and press events.
  • Curating, developing, and delivering compelling presentations, sample solutions, and discussions to help drive awareness and adoption of AWS services.
  • Collaborating with internal teams to define program initiatives for technical audiences, market positioning, gathering customer feedback, and nurturing and growing technical communities.
  • Creating and maintaining relevant content (demos, videos, blogs, screencasts, books, and other mediums), covering AWS services along with emerging technologies and industry developments.
  • Maintaining a strong and credible presence in social media channels relevant to technical audiences.
  • Working with your worldwide counterparts to share best practices and help build a best-in-the-industry developer relations organization.


  • 5+ years of hands-on technical experience with cloud computing infrastructure, application development platforms, and popular programming languages, operations, and/or security
  • 2+ years in a customer-facing role or a role that involved public speaking
  • Superior oral and written communication skills in English
  • Outstanding public speaking, content creation, and presentation skills (in person and online), and experience working with technical communities.
  • Willingness to travel and ability to work autonomously
  • Able to work in a diverse team


  • Significant experience in IT Infrastructure and/or software development, with special emphasis in areas of computing, Storage, Databases, Networking, Application Services, Machine Learning, Big Data, and/or distributed computing
  • Practical experience in cloud computing, architecture, systems, or application design, development, or operations. Existing knowledge of the AWS platform is a bonus.
  • Working knowledge and experience with social/online marketing coupled with prior experience in product definition, bring-to-market strategies, and/or setting an industry standard.
  • A history of successful speaking engagements, online content creation, industry influence, and/or recognition in technology publications is preferred.
  • Success in nurturing, engaging with, and growing large technical communities
  • While not a requirement, oral and written communication skills in French are an added value
