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.
