Expanding the Chainlink Community Advocate Program
We’re putting out the call for new Advocates to take our community to the next level and help accelerate Chainlink adoption across the globe. If you share our vision of creating an economically fair world through hybrid smart contracts and decentralized oracle networks, we encourage you to join the Chainlink Community Advocate Program today.
Why Become a Chainlink Community Advocate
Technology and community are the forces powering the expansion of the Chainlink ecosystem. Chainlink Community Advocates are responsible for educating others about the Chainlink vision and for creating a network of like-minded individuals who can together raise awareness of the far-reaching impact of Chainlink in the blockchain space and beyond.
As a Chainlink Community Advocate, you will have the opportunity to connect with our extensive network of engineers, industry leaders, researchers, entrepreneurs, and others who are pushing the ecosystem forward. Becoming a Chainlink Community Advocate is ultimately a chance to take an active part in the direction of Chainlink development and work directly with the teams that are making Chainlink-powered smart contracts a reality. Many Advocates have gone on to have rewarding careers in the blockchain industry and working on Chainlink specifically. Some other Advocate benefits include:
- Community and Technical Resources — Hosting a Chainlink event? We’ll provide support. Need to level up your Solidity skills? We can provide courses and walkthroughs.
- Advance Professionally — We will professionally advocate for you, whether that is for a job building Chainlink or working elsewhere in the industry.
- Event and Conference Access — Get complimentary access to Advocate-only events and invitations to industry-wide conferences like SmartCon 2021.
- Exclusive Networking Opportunities — Work directly with some of the most influential figures and projects in the space and forge ties with other passionate community members in our private Advocate-only communication channels.
- Chainlink Gear — Represent in style! Stand out with official Chainlink Community Advocate swag.
