DevRel / Technical Evangelist (m/w/d)

Gaia-X is the European Association for Data and Cloud AISBL with a mission to design a federated data infrastructure focusing on data sovereignty and availability, based on European standards and values. In a six-month period, more than 300 companies and organisations have already actively participated in the design of Gaia-X. Of these, 75% belong to the private sector, 40% of which are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The federation concept creates room for self-determination, which in Europe is greatly appreciated, and provides the basis for innovations. Gaia-X will define common mechanisms to enable interoperability and portability of data and services across multiple cloud sources, thus enabling a new era of the European digital economy. The joint endeavour of hundreds of representatives from business industries, research institutions and government aim to create new rules for cloud and data services to let organisations and individuals retain full control over their data and empower them to make independent decisions about how and who can access it.
