Our Mission

We aspire to build the “devops operating system”: one integrated platform to orchestrate the delivery of applications to the cloud, from start to finish. We will accomplish this by giving devops enthusiasts what they want most: a programming environment which can encode their expertise into reusable software components, while remaining compatible with their existing tools. If we are successful, the devops community will enter a new golden age of explosive innovation and collaboration, with the Dagger platform and brand at its center.

About The Role

We’re looking for an Ecosystem Technical Generalist with extensive experience in CI/CD, DevOps automation, and developer tools to join the Ecosystem Team to build and support our developer community through direct engagement (reactive and outreach) and technical content creation (e.g. code/integrations, demos, docs). The ideal candidate will have a strong technical background plus the desire to engage with our community members/contributors, partner organizations, and customers. In addition to engaging in all aspects of our present ecosystem, you’ll help to create strategies that evolve Dagger’s capabilities as a developer-oriented, open source platform based on feedback from the community and collaboration with Product and Engineering. The goal is to create a delightful and engaging developer experience where our community and partners are empowered to articulate their needs and to directly contribute to the Dagger platform.

About The Product

Dagger is a portable development kit for CICD pipelines. Using Dagger, software teams can create powerful pipelines with minimal effort, then run them anywhere. Devops engineers love Dagger because it allows:

  • Re-using the same pipelines across dev and CI
  • Testing and debugging pipelines locally
  • Re-using their same pipeline across CI environment, without re-writes

You can expect to:

  • Lead users through defined pilot projects (POC)
  • Support and educate users ad hoc as they try out Dagger

  • Working with the Head of Ecosystem, in developing a plan to educate, engage, and delight our developer community.
  • Help to implement a roadmap of exciting events, meetups, and focused sessions for the developer community.
  •  Working on technical integrations. For example:
    • How Dagger can use/deploy to another cloud/service/tool
    • How Dagger can be called from another service/tool
  • Employ a data-driven approach to community building, including understanding how to measure the health and success of a developer community.
  • Effectively communicate in a fast-paced environment with a decentralized global team.
  • Show/explain the value of Dagger to prospective users/customers through:
  • Demos
  • Webinars
  • Videos
  • Docs/blogs/whitepapers

You may be a good fit for our team if you have:

  • 7+ years in equivalent past work experience
  • Experience with open-source communities and ambassador programs (including events & meetups
  • You are comfortable working in a fast-paced environment with clear measurable OKRs
  • You are comfortable leading and communicating regularly with a decentralized community of developers and contributors

  • You value simplicity, iteration, and moving fast
  • Experience with container technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, BuildKit.
  • Hands on experience with Linux, Javascript/Typescript, Go, Python, Bash, etc

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities.

Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past.
