The Zephyr Project is a Linux Foundation hosted Collaboration Project. It’s an open source collaborative effort uniting developers and users in building a best-in-class small, scalable, real-time operating system (RTOS) optimized for resource-constrained devices, across multiple architectures.
The Zephyr Project (Zephyr) is seeking a community and documentation manager to help grow and support the global Zephyr ecosystem.
Ideally, you have experience helping new developers become productive in a project by providing effective documentation, being able to explain the new technical features of a project, evangelize the project to developer communities and meetups, getting volunteers participating in tasks beyond code development, and managing communities. You value the power of a diverse human network to sustain and grow technology communities, and you foster building connections between people. You look at a long-term, healthy global community of developers and others as a meaningful legacy which you are profoundly motivated to build.
- You will be a key member of the Zephyr/LF staff working closely with project community members along with Zephyr technical and marketing teams.
- You will help identify, cultivate and promote work being built by the community.
- You will also play a key role in gathering and sharing the needs of the broader user community with Zephyr staff and members.
- Coordinate project documentation activities and identify areas requiring documentation, tutorials and demos and work with maintainers to fill the gaps
- Keep consistency between different guides.
- Help update and improve the stylistic and other guidelines for future doc contributions to Zephyr.
- Technical skills: You are hands-on with Zephyr and Embedded technologies
- Speaking skills: You have experience giving presentations and love crafting presentations for a specific audience, from developers to the C suite.
- Advocacy skills: You can act as a champion for the needs of the Zephyr project
- Writing skills: You have written articles, case studies, books and blog posts showcasing your technical acumen.
- Experience writing technical documentation and familiarity with the concept of public APIs and API specifications and experience with producing documentation in “ReStructured Text” (RST) and using tools for document generation.
- Organizational skills: You can help organize the community meetup and track key metrics, and coordinate translation activities.
- Have a track record of engaging and growing digital communities with very active participants
- Willing to shift schedules to accommodate the challenges presented by working with colleagues and members across the globe!
- Able to travel, including internationally, several times a year to attend events once conditions permit again.
- You have 5+ years of experience in open source engineering, community management, product management or sales engineering.
- Experience working with open source projects and communities.
- Ideal: you have “influencer” status in the embedded community. When you talk, people listen.
- You are an open source pragmatist at heart!
