  • You care deeply about developers and understand their process and frustrations, primarily because you have past technical experience working as a software developer or in a related field
  • You have a thorough understanding of developer relations, developer evangelism, developer advocacy, developer platforms, and communities
  • You have ran platformized programs, especially aimed at developers

Bonus points
