GitKraken Ambassador Program: Introducing the Next Generation

Back in 2019, we introduced the world to the first group of GitKraken Ambassadors. Since then, we have continued to grow and expand the program. Many of our Ambassadors focused on local live events, such as Meetups to spread their love of GitKraken. Unfortunately, the realities of 2020 and 2021 have meant that these events have been put on hold and we have had to rethink this portion of our Ambassador program.

Fortunately, our community of Ambassadors is resilient and rather creative, which allowed us to reshape the mission to better serve an online and truly global community. We have updated the GitKraken Ambassador program to focus on creating and sharing content around how GitKraken helps them solve problems. As you will see below in the spotlighted content, our Ambassadors have a lot of different backgrounds and each one brings a unique perspective to the mission.  

When we announced this change, we saw a lot of new applicants to the program who were eager to share their love of content creation and GitKraken with the world.  After a careful screening process, we have added a lot of new Ambassadors to the ranks, bringing the total up to over 150 GitKraken Ambassadors worldwide!  

Are you passionate about Git, GitKraken, and sharing your knowledge with others? You sound like a great fit to become a GitKraken Ambassador! 🚀
