|How about working for SuSE
Five Really Good Reasons to Work at SUSE
1. Open Source is in our Genes
At SUSE, open source is more than just a development model. It's a way
of life. We started as an open source company over 20 years ago, and
we're still committed to that. For us, being active contributors in
upstream communities is essential—not just because it's our
heritage, but also because we believe it's the only way open source
technologies will continue to thrive.
Linux thrives because we all collaborate upstream, no matter the color
of the company we work for. SUSE developers participate in upstream
communities across a wide range of open source projects. In joining us,
you will work alongside recognized experts who are not only fun to hang
out with, but also happy to share their knowledge with you.
And it doesn't stop there. Being open is also part of our culture. We
are expected to be transparent, share information and participate in
critical business decisions—regardless of rank or function, from
development, to marketing, to sales and support. We believe in
empowering employees to make the right decisions, every day, by giving
them the information they need.
2. We ARE Enterprise Linux
SUSE invented Enterprise Linux over 20 years ago. We believe in
listening to our customers, understanding what they need, and being
flexible in order to help them succeed. In joining SUSE, you will
experience first-hand what it means to deliver mission-critical,
enterprise-class products. You'll also experience what it's like to be
trusted by a wide variety of customers worldwide—companies in
finance and banking, manufacturing, retail, automotive, defense and
aerospace, public service and countless other industries.
There are fundamental changes underway in how enterprises are handling
their IT needs. We are in the middle of these exciting changes, and by
drawing on our expertise in commercializing open source operating
systems, virtualization, systems management and cloud computing
solutions, we can support our customers in establishing new service
models and new IT processes – quickly, easily and affordably.
3. Results Matter
Working at SUSE is fun. We also know how to work hard. Our customers
tell us they love our service and support. And they appreciate the high
quality of our products. We strive to uphold our high standards, setting
ourselves ambitious (but achievable) goals and meeting them: product
delivery dates, customer satisfaction objectives, or financial results.
And of course, we know how to celebrate when we do meet them.
4. We Invest in Being Innovative
We don't believe in standing still. The IT industry is constantly
evolving, and so must we. In order to continually deliver value to our
customers, we help each other stay current on the latest market trends
and technology innovations. While we encourage each other to share
information and work together to find innovative approaches to problems,
we recognize that informal approaches may not be enough.
At SUSE, we proactively create the space that we need to take a fresh
look at things, to work on innovative approaches, and to exchange new
ideas. For example, our entire R&D organization participates in two
"hackweeks" each year—dedicated times to explore and experiment on
topics that are both interesting and important. Similarly, our SUSE Labs
group organizes an annual conference, together with the openSUSE
community, where they engage in discussions on emerging open-source
5. YOU Matter
At the end of the day, employees are what make up this company—our
collective knowledge, our passion for open source and our dedication to
success. And this is why at SUSE, we take great care to make sure that
our work environment is right. Office locations and cities with the
largest concentrations of employees include:
Provo, Utah, USA
Prague, Czech Republic
Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA
We also have many employees who work from other locations around the
world, including their own homes. We believe that work is an activity,
not a place.
