Senior Director, Developer Relations

Equinix is the world’s digital infrastructure company. We believe that the future of infrastructure will be developer-led and software-defined, and we’re committed to helping digital leaders assemble infrastructure in minutes, anywhere in the world, on-demand from an ecosystem of providers.

To make this vision possible, we’re building a culture and set of products that put practitioners, builders, and creators at the center. A key part of this strategy is our Developer Relations group, whose mandate goes beyond developer marketing to span the entire developer product experience.

As our Developer Relations leader, your goal will be to establish Equinix and Equinix Metal as trusted brands in the developer ecosystem, driving awareness and adoption of our platform and partners.

Job Summary: This role reports to the VP, Bare Metal Strategy & Marketing. 

As Senior Director, Developer Relations you will oversee a growing team that includes: DevRel engineering, product documentation, developer advocacy, and ecosystem partner development (startups, open source, and commercial SaaS / software partners).  

While currently focused on Equinix Metal, we are interested in increasing the impact of Developer Relations across Equinix’s entire digital services portfolio (Equinix Fabric, Network Edge, Equinix Connect, Metro Connect, and Precision Time).  As Senior Director, Developer Relations you will play a leadership role in this evolution.

Responsibilities

  • Filling digital services gaps...by activating ecosystem partners that enable key functional areas e.g. Kubernetes, Storage, Databases, HCI.

  • Raising awareness internally and externally...by engaging our peers across Equinix in practitioner culture and perspective.…by educating and enabling internal staff to give customers access to our resources, tooling, and partners...by engaging with open-source communities, startups, and developer events to create a strong brand with practitioners.

This is an entrepreneurial role that requires strategic, analytical, and creative skills; a deep understanding of the developer ecosystem; experience leading engineering or product teams; a commitment to authentic community engagement and outreach; a business development sensibility; and a desire to engage with stakeholders across all mediums from code to video and the written word.  Most importantly, you’ll want to play a key role in the future of developer-led infrastructure.
