Microsoft Java &”Evangelist&” position opening

Here’s a quite surprising ad by Microsoft:

“So, you think Java is a pretty awesome way to write portable code,

do you? We do too. Microsoft is looking for a Java evangelist –

someone to tell the world all about the cool Java work that we are

doing, and how to take advantage of it. The person we’re looking

for is technical, articulate, and excited about Java. A Java

evangelist explains the benefits of Java to developers, marketers,

and company presidents, so s/he needs to be comfortable explaining

technology to technical and non-technical people alike. The Java

evangelist also champions the Java developer within Microsoft –

making sure that systems and tools include the features that

developers need, so s/he must understand development issues and be

able to make a compelling argument. The Java evangelist can be

based in either the SF Bay Area or Redmond, WA. Of course, Java

development experience is a must, and knowing a bit about COM

wouldn’t hurt either.

format. Be sure to include a URL for a site showing off your best

work. Please indicate your level of interest. No phone calls

please. Microsoft is an equal opportunity employer and supports

workforce diversity. ”
