The CircleCI platform continues to have a more expansive footprint, both in terms of capabilities and customers.   The technology stacks and integrated platforms that we support continue to grow in number, the feature list of our platform expands everyday, and the practices and processes of continuous integration and continuous deployment continue to evolve.  For all of these reasons, CircleCI needs to ensure that we are able to create helpful technical content and publish it to our user community in an efficient and effective manner.

We are hiring a Director of Technical Content to define and drive our efforts to educate our user community.  The ideal candidate will be a unique combination of strategic thinker and hands-on contributor that can go from defining a vision for content distribution to writing a piece of technical content within the span of the same day.  This role will require someone capable of working in a highly cross-organizational fashion, collaborating with our marketing, revenue, product, and engineering teams. This role will determine the various channels and mediums we intend to use to distribute technical / educational content, will establish our process and policies for identifying content needs and driving collaborative efforts to create, publish, and maintain the final work product.  This role will report to our Vice President of Global Customer Engineering.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
