My name is Robert Wright (fas/irc: rwright) and I live in Poole, UK.
I found out about Fedora Marketing after reviewing the sub projects on the
Fedora Wiki, and am currently interested in how I can volunteer some of my
time to building out long term marketing support for the project. I’ve
worked volunteer roles in the past with Campaign groups, as well as
Conventions (Sci-fi/Anime/Gaming) and am used to the stress that comes with
wrangling volunteers as well
This would be my first true marketing project I’ve worked on, but in my
day job, I work as a Product Manager, and am skilled in preparing materials
and supporting both marketing and sales for my products I manage today in
my role. I want to volunteer to help me learn more skills I can apply to
other areas of my life professionally.
My skills, which I hope to utilize in Fedora Marketing, include:
- Product / Platform Management, including customer journey planning,
user research, and using design thinking methods (ideas, ideas, ideas!!)
- Community Management and Marketing, working for a Convention back in
Boise, ID, I learned a lot about print media as well as digital marketing
(Google Ads, planning and designing Social Media campaigns, survey design
and analysis, and building by-mouth campaigns to drive interest).
- Software Engineering, mostly in a PHP and PostgreSQL/MySQL
environment, but am learning Python as the community here has really
embraced Python in the culture of Fedora’s infra.
I wanted to learn more about long term projects, including what projects
could use some support, and how I can pitch in to help generate content for
the next release.
I encourage you to join the marketing IRC meetings on Tuesdays at 1pm GMT.
for more details.
I am excited to hopefully start contributing with you all!
