Job description

In order to support Scaleway’s ambitious international growth strategy, the Marketing team is recruiting a Head of Developer Relations who will build our global developer advocacy strategy, recruit a 5-person team, and define what developer advocacy means at Scaleway.

As a Head of Developer Relations, you will build and manage our developer advocacy strategy, launching original initiatives and partnering with existing developer-facing teams like documentation, field, content, campaigns, product marketing & our startup program to ensure that we engage authentically with the developer community.

As a leader in the Marketing department, you will keep a close eye on the growth of our self-serve revenue and sales pipeline, the two north star metrics for the marketing department today; however, we expect you to help us define the third north star metric upon which developer advocates should be measured and which the entire marketing department should rally behind.

You will report directly to our VP Marketing, Liam Boogar-Azoulay, and you will be expected to communicate a clear roadmap, report on outcomes, and bring other teams into the fold.

Scaleway counts on you to ramp up quickly by building a developer relations roadmap that unites & ignites our various developer-facing teams, integrating your unique understanding of how best to engage with developers in 2021 and beyond. In the future, we’ll look to you to manage a team of developer advocates, each with their own technical areas of expertise, priorities & initiatives.


  • Familiarize yourself with our existing channels for community engagement, such as social media & our Scaleway Community on Slack.
  • Build a Developer Relations strategy that amplifies our existing team efforts and builds new engagement tactics targeting communities you believe we should invest in.
  • Recruit and build a team of developer advocates across Europe who will operate in tandem to our Startup Program & field team members.
  • Define and report on key metrics that reflect that progress of your developer relations strategy.
  • Inject your developer relations perspective into existing projects, such as the Breakathon,
  • Spin up new Developer Relations-led content, field & campaign initiatives that all of Scaleway will get behind.
  • Speak on behalf of Scaleway at events, leveraging your technical product & industry expertise.
  • Channel feedback from the developer community back to our product & marketing teams to improve the way we build for and speak to the developer community.
  • Set & maintain ambitious OKRs that draw a direct line between your work’s impact and the company’s growth strategy.
  • Challenge yourself to grow into the role that Scaleway needs tomorrow by pursuing continuous professional development.

The Ideal Candidate

  • You have previously worked in, and ideally taken a leadership role, a developer relations team with a global footprint.
  • You are familiar with Scaleway’s product portfolio and are comfortable building using Scaleway’s or one of our competitor’s products.
  • Your passion for public speaking is surpassed only by your passion for listening to developers.
  • You are an active member of a developer community that our users are part of.
  • You have a previous experience working in software-as-a-service environment, ideally a cloud hosting provider.
  • You are excited by Developer Relations having the support of the Marketing Department, and you understand the benefits & potential trade-offs that come with it.
  • You thrive in an autonomous environment.
  • You love to learn every day.
  • You are curious & passionate about the future of cloud computing.
