Senior Developer Advocate - GraphQL (AWS AppSync)

Hudson, NH 03051
  • Jobs Rated


Job summary
Amazon Web Services (AWS) is looking for a Developer Advocate to drive adoption of GraphQL on AWS, participate actively in the GraphQL community, and influence the direction and roadmap of AWS AppSync. The AWS AppSync service gives developers the ability to create serverless GraphQL APIs that simplify application development by providing a single endpoint to securely query or update data from multiple data sources, and leverage GraphQL subscriptions to implement engaging real-time application experiences by automatically publishing data updates to subscribed API clients via serverless WebSockets connections. In this role, you€™ll combine your passion for developer enablement with your ability to creatively generate grass-roots attention and enthusiasm for both GraphQL and AWS AppSync among developers, technologists, and key industry opinion makers.

Ideally, you€™re someone who can write code with the best of them, but get great satisfaction from guiding developers and enterprises towards a technology you heartily believe in. You have immediate credibility with developers but are equally at home working with decision makers at large enterprises. 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. If this sounds like you, this is your dream job. Your responsibilities will include:

  • Active participation in the open source GraphQL community, including proposing new projects and contributing to existing projects
  • Creating GraphQL best practices content in the form of articles, screencasts, white papers and tutorials
  • Gaining industry recognition and credibility as a regular attendee, panelist, and keynote speaker at meetups, technology conferences, trade shows and press events
  • Delivering compelling presentations, product demos, sample solutions, and discussions to drive adoption of GraphQL and AWS AppSync
  • Identifying potential partnerships and clients and assisting with pre-sales support
  • Collaborating with product management to help shape the AWS AppSync product roadmap
  • Maintaining a strong and credible presence in social media channels relevant to developers
  • Working with your worldwide counterparts to share best practices and help build a best-in-the-industry developer advocacy organization
This is a unique opportunity to join a team that is working to change how applications get built and who builds them; we aim to enable millions of people to create everyday web and mobile experiences that enrich lives.

We have a formal mentor search application that lets you find a mentor that works best for you based on location, job family, job level etc. Your manager can also help you find a mentor or two, because two is better than one. In addition to formal mentors, we work and train together so that we are always learning from one another, and we celebrate and support the career progression of our team members.

Here at AWS, we embrace our differences. We are committed to furthering our culture of inclusion. We have ten employee-led affinity groups, reaching 40,000 employees in over 190 chapters globally. We have innovative benefit offerings, and we host annual and ongoing learning experiences, including our Conversations on Race and Ethnicity (CORE) and AmazeCon (gender diversity) conferences. Amazon€™s culture of inclusion is reinforced within our 14 Leadership Principles, which remind team members to seek diverse perspectives, learn and be curious, and earn trust.

Work-Life Balance
Our team also puts a high value on work-life balance. Striking a healthy balance between your personal and professional life is crucial to your happiness and success here, which is why we aren€™t focused on how many hours you spend at work or online. Instead, we€™re happy to offer a flexible schedule so you can have a more productive and well-balanced life€”both in and outside of work.


  • 3+ years experience in software development or working closely with developer audiences (e.g., as a solution architect or in a developer community)
  • Hands on experience with GraphQL and event-driven application architectures
  • Experience building a developer community
  • Experience in contributing or building open source projects


  • Ability to present with authority at large conferences and ability to dive deep into customer's problems as an architect and guide
  • Experience creating and editing high quality coding video tutorials
  • Experience writing technical blog posts, tutorials, and documentation
