Just wanted to give everyone out there a heads-up: my team, Creative Solutions Evangelism, has a job opening. I’m looking for a Worldwide Web Evangelist. Is it you? You can read more about the position by going to Adobe.com’s job listings section. The job listing is number: CC030836 – or just hit the search and type in “Evangelist”.
In a nutshell, I need someone who has an expert’s knowledge of Adobe’s web tools (Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash) as well as experience with Photoshop and Illustrator. You should have a solid foundation in these, but your focus will be on your skills with the Flash Authoring tool. Specifically, I’m interested in someone who knows the authoring tool like the back of their hand, from both a designer’s perspective, but also from a developer’s point of view, and knows the ins and outs of Actionscript 2/3 and has experience with Flash video. (How’s that for a run-on sentence?!) If you also know the Flash Media Server, even better!
Of course, as an Evangelist, you’ve got to have excellent presentation skills because you’ll be demo’ing these products around the world in front of small and large groups alike – at trade shows and seminars. You’ll also be regularly speaking at industry conferences where your knowledge will really be put to the test. In addition, you’ll be blogging, creating demos, and sharing your knowledge internally with the product teams as they create the next versions of our software.
I don’t care where you’re located – as long as you have a major airport within striking distance.
And I won’t lie to you, it’s a demanding job, as you’ll be on the road around the world 50+% of the time – but the reward is a highly visible position with great pay and excellent benefits in one of the best companies to work for in the world. If you think you have what it takes, leave a comment and let me know – or even better, apply for the job!
