Gluster Ant

The Job Description

The role of a community manager is simple enough to define: Help your community to be wildly successful, grow new users
and contributors, and expose it to as many people as possible. For Gluster, that task involves promoting the adoption of
GlusterFS and ensuring that the existing Gluster community has all of the tools and resources that it needs to continue
to generate a high quality set of open source storage solutions.

The role requires a highly motivated individual, who is willing and prepared to do a lot of hands-on work. They’ll need
strong people skills, and be prepared to speak publicly on Gluster. In many ways, this role is how new users and contributors
will interact with the Gluster Community for the first time, when they visit the Gluster table at a conference, or visit a
Gluster BOF or meetup. The community manager is also responsible for coordinating marketing of the community, helping to
promote the new features and technologies that they create, and to help it stand out amongst the crowd.

There is a fair amount of travel involved, the community manager needs to get the Gluster story out there, but you’ll never
be alone. You’ll be part of the Open Source and Standards team at Red Hat, where other experienced community managers can help
you learn the tricks to be successful. You’ll also be working closely with the Red Hat Storage team, and of course, the
fantastic Gluster community.

If you’ve got experience working with Storage technologies and are interested in helping open source to flourish in this space,
this could be the perfect role for you!

    The initial rounds of conversation around the planning of content for release 8 has helped the project identify one key thing – the need to stagger out features and enhancements over multiple releases. Thus, while release 8 is unlikely to be feature heavy as previous releases, it will be the...
