Successful evangelists all share this trait: they are passionate about helping others connect and succeed with technology. If you are not sure what evangelists do, you might check out this published study.
If you are interested in a career in technical evangelism and community building with Bungee Labs, then you must be familiar with how developers think, savvy about the Internet culture and etiquette norms, and have a sound theory (not hypothesis) for what makes web-based communities succeed. You must be a socially-inclined developer who enjoys engaging others in your passion for web technologies. You also must be the kind of person who can identify ways to improve outreach and effectiveness, and then roll up your sleeves and make your ideas a reality.

Here are a few other considerations:
- I try to hire based on aptitude and drive, not just professional experience. If you don’t have evangelism experience, and you can still sell me on why you would be good at it, then you might be exactly what we’re looking for.
- For 2008, our evangelist hires will be based in Utah, so you must be willing and able to relocate.
- I will want to know your Bungee Connect account name so I can see how much time you have spent getting to know the platform.
