Job Description

Technical Product Owner - Marketing & Sales


Open Source is in our genes. Open to us means more than shared source code. It’s a philosophy and approach that informs everything we do.

Leveraging our Linux heritage, we deliver the truly open source solutions, flexible business practices, lack of enforced vendor lock-in, and exceptional service and support that our customers’ digital transformation demands.
