About the OpenStack Foundation:

OpenStack is software for building clouds. OpenStack powers some of the world’s largest public clouds, widely-used SaaS applications, eCommerce sites and Global 1000 enterprises alike. Best Buy, Bloomberg, CERN, Cisco WebEx, Comcast, eBay, Intel, HP, MercadoLibre, Rackspace, Paypal, Sony Computer Entertainment America and hundreds more rely on OpenStack to run their business every day.

OpenStack was established as an open source software project in 2010 by Rackspace and NASA, and today OpenStack is backed by an independent and non-profit Foundation that launched in September 2012. The Foundation is comprised of a global community with more than 30,000 members across 150 countries. The Foundation is supported by the benevolence of our member companies and sponsors. The goal of the OpenStack Foundation is to serve developers, users and the entire ecosystem by providing a set of shared resources to grow the footprint of public and private OpenStack clouds, enable technology vendors targeting the platform and assist developers in producing the best cloud software in the industry.

The marketing team within the OpenStack Foundation develops messaging and provides marketing resources for the ecosystem of OpenStack users, supporting companies of the Foundation, and developers. Twice annually the Foundation hosts a Summit for the community - a five-day conference for OpenStack developers, ecosystem members, service providers and enterprise users. The event currently sees over 6,000 attendees, 110 sponsors, industry-leading keynote speakers, 400+ breakout sessions, hands-on workshops, collaborative design sessions and various networking opportunities. The marketing team fully supports the Summits in addition to many global community and industry events throughout the year.

The Foundation offers a unique learning opportunity for a student or a recent graduate to work directly with marketers and executives from many of the world's largest tech companies and rapidly growing tech startups. We are happy to work with you to receive credit for your internship if possible, per your department's rules and guidelines.
