I’m very pleased to welcome Mike Perez (a.k.a. thingee) to the Engineering team at the OpenStack Foundation.
Within the Foundation, the Engineering team is tasked with ensuring the long-term health of the OpenStack open source development project. That includes helping in keeping the project infrastructure up and running, organizing the design summits and identifying issues within our open community early and engage to fix them proactively. Mike brings a lot of development experience and community engagement to the table, and I expect we’ll be able to address more issues more quickly as a result of him joining the team.
The team is now composed of two infrastructure engineers, with Jeremy Stanley (current Infrastructure PTL) and Clark Boylan, and two development coordinators (Mike and myself). We are hiring new people (an upstream developer advocate and another development coordinator) to cope with our project continued growth and the increased complexity of the challenges our community encounters.
You can find those job descriptions (and the openings in other teams at the Foundation right now) on the OpenStack job board. If you like the idea of working for a non-profit, have a keen sense of community, cherish having a lot of autonomy and enjoy working in a fast-paced environment, you should definitely consider joining us!
