am now actively looking forfound my next challenge 🎉: a place I’ll be able to call home for many years to come. If you think you have a role for me, here is a cheat sheet for you to evaluate if I could be a great fit.
- a developer relations leadership role: open to discuss IC roles if the challenge is uber-awesome;
- a real challenge: I get bored easily so I cannot be just another resource to do more of the same;
- certain freedom: I can’t deal with micromanagement;
- trust: you hired me for a reason;
- diversification of the role: focus on writing content only is a technical writer job;
- enough people within -7 to -1 UTC (currently Daylight Savings, otherwise -8 to -2 UTC), so I don’t feel alone most of the day;
- a work-life balance: I love my job, but I’m not a workaholic.
- extrovert, passionate, outspoken, colorful, bold and I tweet a lot: it’s part of the package deal;
- experienced: 20 years in tech with 10 in developer relations;
- pragmatic, but I have a preference for anything open source;
- not cheap: I am at a Bay Area director/principal level base salary-wise;
- working remotely for the last 10 years: this won’t change now;
- more than happy to work with a product or technologies I don’t know: I actually love that;
- really good at public speaking, making videos and creating real connections with developers.
- relocate anywhere in North America, but open to everywhere else with proper support;
- be able to work for you remotely unless you have a Canadian entity or use a Professional Employer Organization (it’s easy & cheaper than the former, here’s why);
- work at a startup which doesn’t have at least a Series A;
- have goals that are too close to a dollar sign: developer relations is not sales or presales;
- have a technical focus on native mobile development (or Ionic framework) or any low-level programming languages;
- work for companies that do not align with my values:
- work with people who do not like cats 🤣
You can check my resume (PDF) or my LinkedIn profile. You can also find a lot of what I’ve done in this article, and also a list of past talks (169 talks in 22 countries). If you still think I would be a good fit for your team or company, ping me.
