Open Source Community Builder/Content Marketer

Open-source technologies such as Kubernetes are defining the future for cloud computing. Serverless computing is the next big trend in cloud, and Platform9 launched Fission, one of the hottest open source serverless products in the market this last January, along with other investments in open source hybrid & microservices. The team is passionate about Kubernetes, Fission & OpenStack and is seeking a rising star to invigorate the open source evangelist community around these technologies via high-value content and outreach.

At their core, this person loves developers and empathizes with their hopes and dreams. They must be a talented writer, great listener and skillful wrangler of others. They must possess organizational skills (read: able and happy to report progress based on measureable outcomes), be dependable and calm under pressure with a passion for getting others as excited about our technology as we are.
