Are you ready to join the API revolution?

Kong is an open-source project with a global developer adoption around the world. Developers and architects are adopting Kong in production among a large variety of use-cases, and actively help making Kong a better product with their feedback and contributions. In addition to that, the community creates and maintains an ecosystem of tooling and functionality around Kong that significantly extends the value of the product. As a developer advocate you connect and empathize with developers in order to nurture the community and increase Kong’s adoption in the world, creating momentum and improving the experience of adopting Kong and sharing knowledge that will ultimately improve the end-user experience in every stage of the process such as discovering, learning, installing, deploying Kong and leverage its ecosystem.

  • Build and foster an external community of influencers, meet-ups and experts that amplify our messages and extend our reach
