I am very excited to welcome @April to SmartThings and specifically to the community team. April is a big fan of SmartThings and it showed. She was the star of the team that Samsung hired to demonstrate SmartThings at CES — enthusiastically and knowledgeably speaking to her own scenario as well as others.
As our Community Manager, April will let her enthusiasm show by being active on the community forums, diligent in developer communications (helping to curate and send the developer email newsletter), helping with developer events, and more. This will make for a more effective community organization as we add more developer evangelists/advocates and event capacity in the coming year.
April is moving back to the Bay Area after a couple years in San Diego.
In April’s own words:
My name is April Wong, and I had the pleasure of representing SmartThings at CES2015, and I’m very excited to now officially join the team as a Community Manager. I have past experiences in customer experience, front-end UI/UX design for mobile and software platforms, creating digital/printed assets, planning marketing campaigns, and events. I personally love to go downhill mountain biking, snowboarding, and anything fun. I do, however, draw the line on jumping off an airplane without a parachute. Safety first.
