  • Proven data visualization skills, with the ability to present complex technical data and information in ways that are relevant to different non-technical audiences.

Our preference is that you are based in the greater Dallas area, but we will consider highly qualified candidates based anywhere in the U.S., as long as you are willing and able to travel to Dallas on occasion.

 

The Role

Reporting to the Chief Technology Officer, you will join a team that supports Digital Realty's platform, services and solutions. This includes resources in innovation, product management, sales engineering and other areas.

You will invest the majority of your time in supporting PlatformDIGITAL, which emphasizes our ability to provide a complete portfolio of highly responsive data center solutions. PlatformDIGITAL is purpose-built to enable the ever-changing data, control and networking demands of global enterprises. It helps clients scale up while minimizing complexity, cost and risk.

The platform touches on just about all areas of our company, and you will take point on ensuring we communicate effectively with a variety of stakeholders. In particular, you will focus on ensuring consistent and regular messaging to help ensure alignment across the groups.

Initially you'll need to become very familiar with the platform and the work of the CTO office in order to see the value from multiple lenses. This will include sitting in on conference calls, attending webinars and doing other research. From there you will start to develop a big-picture understanding, including identifying key data points.

Specific responsibilities will include:

  • Tracking and reporting efforts to implement the PlatformDIGITAL approach, which requires unification across functional areas.
  • Elevating the material facts, understanding the expectations of stakeholders, and developing metrics to track those.
  • Providing insight that helps us structure programs effectively, ensure delivery to expectations and control finances.

Deliverables may include dashboards, regular reporting, ad hoc analyses, and more.

Note: this description is intended to give you a general overview of the position and is not an exhaustive listing of duties and responsibilities.

 

 

Strategic impact

It should be clear by now that you'll shape the messaging and information flow around a key strategic initiative. You'll also provide the data and information that leaders need to ensure the initiative's success.

 

Professional development

This is a unique role and you will acquire a deep understanding of our business, markets and customers. That could set you up to evolve into a thought leader in strategy, such as identifying ecosystems for us to pursue. You might also become a spokesperson, keeping internal and external audience up to date on what we're doing.

 

Global reach

PlatformDIGITAL is in 20 countries on 6 continents, and provides interconnected ecosystems for 700+ network and content providers, 600+ cloud and IT providers, and 800+ enterprises. It is always on, including 24/7 support 365 days a year, delivering 99.999% uptime.

 

Growth without limits

We're growing fast and growing smart, including acquiring businesses that complement and strengthen our core offerings. We're already one of the largest players in our space, and ongoing growth will create opportunities for strong performers.

 

Entrepreneurial culture

We value collaboration and encourage innovation, and the organization is committed to providing employees the tools they need to excel and develop professionally.

 

Excellent compensation

In addition to a competitive salary and discretionary bonus program, we offer a comprehensive benefits package.

 

Keys to Success

It sounds simple enough: Identify the relevant data points, find the trend lines and present the information. However, your job will go beyond that. You'll help stakeholders understand the value of PlatformDIGITAL, including seeing the return on investments of time, expertise and money. You'll need to be able to compile different information for different functional groups, present it in ways that are easy for each group to understand and act on, and deliver it in repeatable formats.

As with any new initiative, things are in flux. In addition, the data center industry is very dynamic. To excel in this role you will be flexible and adaptable, and comfortable with ambiguity. There are gray areas, and it will be your job to find them and fill them in.
