There’s a Architect Evangelist position open on the DPE team here in Ireland for someone with the right mix of passion, technical and commercial experience.
Wilbour Craddock is returning to the icy tundra that forged and hardened him in Regina, Saskatchewan (yeah, I had to look it up too). Wilbour has really set the bar for this role and has left a very big hole to fill.
Despite rumor’s to the contrary, you don’t have to be a bald ex-DJ with a North American accent to be on the team these days.
Here’s the high level job description from the Career’s site:
