Officially Official Cover Letter

[Dutch Lock Down Day Three Hundred Sixty One]

Which, really, should reside over on https://rainleander.github.io/cv/ but I’ll get it going over here, eh?

My bio paragraph that I typically use for conference talks and such is, “Rain is a systematic, creative, interdisciplinary community liaison with a Bachelor’s in dance and a Master’s in information technology. An epic public speaker, they have disappeared within a box stuffed with swords, created life, and gone skydiving with the Queen. Yes, really. Rain is an active technical contributor with Tinkerbell, RDO, Fedora Project, OpenStack, TripleO, and DjangoGirls.”

But what do I want to DO?

And why with YOU?

But first the news:

Do I start with that?

All sassiness and a lot of truth?

YUP!

Hello!

I am a process oriented, superbly creative, interdisciplinary community liaison with a Bachelor’s in dance and a Master’s in information technology. An epic public speaker, I have disappeared within a box stuffed with swords, created life, and gone skydiving with the Queen.

Yes, really.

I am an active technical contributor with Tinkerbell [0], RDO [1], Fedora Project [2], OpenStack [3], TripleO [4], and DjangoGirls [5] as well as a maintainer of several smaller open source projects like Equinix Metal’s Uniform Standards [6] and Non Binary Resources Awesome List [7].

I joyously seek the next remote developer relations adventure in the open source space as this is the community where I have been a part of – collaborating and inspiring, developing and documenting, encouraging and protecting – for over twelve years.

I am particularly keen to work with YOU because we share a passion for open source, love of community, and drive to change the world. I look forward to discussing how I can help you succeed and, if you’re interested, sure, chatting about swords and skydiving, at your nearest convenience via https://calendly.com/rainleander.

All the best,
Rain
