TripAdvisor is the world’s largest travel site, and our Experiences business is a fast-growing part of the organization. With the world’s largest selection of bookable experiences coupled with unparalleled traveler insights, we’re evolving the entire attractions industry.

As an API evangelist, you are a special breed of employee between sales, marketing, engineering, and support. You will tread many different camps, know our product in and out, receive feedback from the community, and work to better the product and consumer experience.

You are someone who can explain technology to different audiences to get their support for a certain product or technology. You need to be technical but also capable to find the story in a technical message. A good developer evangelist can get techies excited about a product by pointing out the benefits for developers.
