Zalando Technical Evangelist

As Technical Evangelist for Zalando, my job was to represent the developers in the Dublin office - to the Zalando headquarters in Berlin and to the wider Dublin tech community.

While this job included a strong technical element - understanding the technologies and business cases - I realised that I wanted to get back to the technical challenges I had in my previous positions. 



  • Blog on projects, stories and awards in the Dublin office. Examples here and here.
  • Work with developers to get their own blog posts onto the Zalando blog. Included working on idea generation, reviewing the copy and marketing the results. 
  • Working with Berlin headquarters to manage the blog schedule. 

Employer Branding

Employer branding is all about attracting the best talent to the Dublin office, and improve retention of existing talent.

Tasks included:

  • Running meetup events in the Dublin office.
  • Social media marketing.
  • Representing Zalando at booths at conferences.
  • Organising speakers from the Dublin office at conferences, meetups and events.
