Apply Your IoT Skills and Passion to Nurture Your Developer Community
Help Nurture the IoT Community in This Invitation-only Program
If you’re a world-class software developer who wants to play a leadership role in the emerging Internet of Things, Intel would like to talk to you.
The IoT track of the Intel® Software Innovator program is actively recruiting A-list developers to share their talents and vision, and in the process help nurture and inspire an up-and-coming generation of IoT developers in your local community and expand it to our global one. In return, Intel will provide the professional exposure and support resources to help you maximize your own IoT development success and impact.
A word of explanation: Intel IoT Innovators are exclusively about the work – not marketing, not PR. Rather, Intel seeks star developers who can serve as influencers, sharing tips, techniques and best practices for developing applications for Intel® architecture-based devices. This program is dedicated to developer advocacy, with speakership opportunities and other formal engagements for its IoT Innovators. You help us improve the collective knowledge base of our IoT developer community, and we’ll provide a platform to showcase your work and bring your commercial projects to market.
