Ambassador Labs is solving interesting problems for cloud native developers in the Kubernetes space. We are looking to hire a Developer Advocate that cares as much about empowering developers as we do and embraces the cloud native phenomenon that is taking over the world. The Developer Advocate will play a key role in growing and educating our fast growing community. Through thoughtful interactions, your mission is to help Ambassador Labs build the platforms and products that developers love. The team is highly technical, with an emphasis on collaboration and belief that investing in the community is critical to the company’s success. Here are a few examples of what our team has put together for the community: [Daniel Bryant, Director of DevRel at Ambassador Labs, on ethics in the field and no code/low code platforms](https://www.devseccon.com/ep-90-the-current-and-future-landscape-of-development/?utm_content=160596528&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter&hss_channel=tw-1014244758556958721) [Go & Kubernetes: Rapidly Developing Golang Microservices, by Peter O’Neill](https://blog.getambassador.io/go-kubernetes-rapidly-developing-golang-microservices-bfe36cfb5893) We imagine it is important for you to believe in our products.

Developers can change the world. Empowered developers can change the world faster. Ambassador Labs empowers developers to own the services they deliver. With service ownership, developers write, deploy, release, and run code all in a self-service manner, enabling them to receive immediate feedback and creating an accelerating loop of experimentation and improvement. Our customers code, test, and ship services at blistering fast rates compared to their competitors. As a team, our focus is firmly on products that help users make the shift to the cloud with Kubernetes, front and center. We’re most known for our [Ambassador Edge Stack](https://www.getambassador.io/products/edge-stack/api-gateway/) and [Telepresence](https://www.getambassador.io/products/telepresence/) products, but investing heavily in expanding our product footprint including [Service Catalog](https://www.getambassador.io/products/service-catalog/), [Developer Portal](https://www.getambassador.io/products/edge-stack/developer-portal/), and [Kubernetes Initializer](https://blog.getambassador.io/bootstrap-networking-ingress-and-observability-in-five-clicks-with-the-k8s-initializer-89c7eec1b858). We strongly believe that Ambassador Labs’ success is dependent on hiring a diverse team. Diversity means a broader spectrum of opinions, ways of working and approaches to solving problems; we feel it is critical to helping drive the creativity, innovation and sound decision-making our customers love us for! **How to Apply** We are looking forward to hearing from you. We move quickly and decisively. We don’t need to talk to 20 other candidates to make a decision, so if the fit feels right on both sides, you can be part of the team as soon as next week! The first step is speaking to our People Person, followed by the leadership team, and then a few of your future colleagues/team members. Interviews are typically 30 - 45 minutes, all remote. We’ll talk through your background, your approach to work, and dive into your knowledge. We want to hear about your real-life experience and successes, especially the users that you’ve made happy.
