DevDays Content Lead

Fostering the FHIR community

DevDays is the premier FHIR event in the world. It’s the place where FHIR is learned and the FHIR community is being built. DevDays has grown from a few dozen people meeting at the Firely office, to an event with two editions, one in Europe, the other in the US, where more than 500 people from all over the world come together.

We are looking for someone to grow DevDays even further, both in impact and size. A one-of-a-kind job that will take you places.
