Meet Our New West Coast Developer Advocate

Avi Goldman

Hello everyone 👋 Avi here. I’ve got exciting news about my role at SparkPost!

TL;DR:

 

Last summer, I joined SparkPost as an intern on the Growth Engineering team. I was lucky enough drop the “intern” part of my title in September of last year, and I’ve gotten to work on some pretty interesting stuff.

Now, one year later (drumroll please) I’m psyched to say that I’m joining the Developer Relations team as the West Coast Developer Advocate in San Francisco. 🎉 I’ve gotten to work with Mary and Aydrian during my time here and I’m thrilled to join them full time.

I visited SF for the first time after AngelHack Silicon Valley a couple of weeks ago and I’m already a little in love with the city.

I’ve got a ton of ideas that I hope to share about email and making it a little more fun. I’ve got some tooling for front-end work that I’m playing with because let’s face it — HTML emails are hard. (If you want to help, let me know 💌)

After that, who knows! I want to work on email testing and validation tools, integrations with some awesome projects, and some fun demos and guides. Right now, I’m toying with the idea of checkers built with interactive email and SparkPost.

I’m going to be traveling to more events now as well (though I’ve managed to go a good number as an engineer) so if you see me, say hi! I absolutely love going to hackathons, so if you have any suggestions there let me know!

In any case, I’m new to the Developer Advocacy side of things, but I’m super excited for this adventure. If you have any tips or tricks for living in SF or traveling, tweet em at me 😬

If you want to talk, you can find me on Twitter, Github, or email ❤, and I’m always up for a cup of coffee.

— Avi
