    • You’ll devise innovative solutions to support and accelerate federated graph adoption within customers’ existing architectures, strategize new use cases to grow accounts and find and identify opportunities to maximize business value for Apollo’s customers
    • You’ll contribute improvements to our documentation, OSS libraries, and platform from customer feedback or issues. Coordinate with tech leads internally to help us continue to build solutions to real-world issues.
