Hiring more Developer Advocates!

Matthew Marum —  August 26, 2015

Have you checked out the Current Opportunities at SugarCRM lately?  We’re hiring heavily today across all sorts of technical roles at Sugar – including an open position to work with me as a Developer Advocate for SugarCRM!

What does a Sugar Developer Advocate do?

In the past, the term the industry tended to use was “Developer Evangelist” – which frankly always sounded a bit fishy to me.  For me, I much preferred the term “Developer Advocate” which is now much more common in the Software industry.  An Evangelist sounds like someone who is more style than substance.  An Advocate is someone who should listen as much as they talk.

This means that Sugar Developer Advocate act as ambassadors to the Sugar Developer community as well as being a critical stakeholder within SugarCRM Engineering that represents the wants and needs of Sugar Developer community and the Sugar 7 platform.  I think this is a great position for anybody with some good software development experience who is energetic, has good communication skills, has a positive attitude, and loves working with developers!
