The Team:

Continuous growth and the ambition to take GL to the next level led to the establishment of a centralized GL team in the EMEA headquarters in Amsterdam. The team currently consists of 14 people. Equinix is a dynamic organization with a hands-on and open minded GL team that works as one and keeps up with the demanding and always changing organization.

Your role:
