Apple wants to get third party app developers on board for their upcoming Apple Watch and now they are hiring for an evangelist to help promote the smartwatch to those software creators before the product's launch later in 2015.

The job listing states

As a member of Apple's Technology Evangelism team you'll work closely with 3rd party developers to help them build platform differentiating, next generation apps for iOS, with a primary focus on Apple Watch apps. You'll use your app development know-how and experience to communicate app architecture, design, and programming best-practices. You'll work closely with Apple's engineering and marketing organizations on new technologies and frameworks, and enhancements to existing ones. You'll help to define technical sessions for Apple's annual Worldwide Developer Conference as well as seasonal Tech Talks and other developer facing workshops and events.

The Apple Watch Evangelist will likely be a high profile gig for whomever is hired, as he or she will have to convince app developers to create software that will work with the smartwatch. If your favorite apps were made to work with the Apple Watch, would you consider buying the device?
