Want to be a Microsoft Evangelist?

Posted on January 1, 2013 by

Once in a great while, a job opening on our team will come available. As this doesn’t happen that often, I wanted to make sure to share that news with everyone so that we get a good sampling of candidates submitting for the position.

As many of you know, I’ve been with Microsoft for almost 6 years, all of that time in a Technical Evangelist role. An opportunity has become available for me to move into Management within our team, which opens up my old position for a new, fresh face.  If you think that fresh face should be you, I’d encourage you to fill out the online recruiting form and send in your resume using the following link:

What we’re looking for is summed up nicely in the job description there – it’s a technical role for experienced developers to drive adoption of Microsoft developer technologies – specifically Windows 8, Windows Azure and Windows Phone – in the broad developer community across Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. You’ll get to flex a combination of technical, sales, marketing and business management skills as well as work closely with teammates across the district, the region and the US to deliver high-quality outcomes against a challenging scorecard.  It’s not an easy job, but can be a very rewarding one – I should know, as I’ve been doing that job for almost 6 years!

If you have any questions about the position, please send me mail at chris.koenig@microsoft.com and I’ll do my best to answer your questions. Please don’t post comments here as I want to keep our conversations private. I expect we’ll be moving forward soon to identify a set of candidates to do technical screening, so make sure to get your application in quickly!

  1. I am only in my first year of college, and just touching the surface of computer science and technology in general. But this seems like an amazing opportunity for anyone with the required experience and skills. Best of Luck!
