Building resiliency into your DevRel team

Co-presenting with Randall Degges

When economic conditions are tough, Dev Rel teams can find themselves impacted or under pressure – we’re usually not directly attached to revenue, and can find that our remit isn’t tightly aligned with the current needs of the business. But DevRel is a diverse and varied job whose practitioners encompass many skill sets, backgrounds, and disciplines. Because of this DevRel teams are, in many cases, able to quickly adapt to change and pivot work based on a business’s needs.

In this talk, Matt Jarvis and Randall Degges will talk about how you can build a resilient DevRel team that adapts and thrives in the face of challenges. We’ll cover maximizing the value of DevRel in difficult economic conditions, give some pointers for ensuring your team is aligned with the needs of the business, and describe some real world examples of how we’ve built resiliency into the Dev Rel team at Snyk.
