Who we are

We are Collabora

We're a global consultancy, specializing in delivering the benefits of Open Source software to the commercial world. We enable our clients to develop the best solutions, whether writing a line of code, or shaping a longer-term strategic software development plan. By harnessing the potential of community-driven Open Source projects, and re-using existing components, we help our clients reduce time to market and focus on creating product differentiation.

Since our founding in 2005, we've been at the forefront of Open Source technology, developing solutions that power today’s leading products across a number of industry segments, included in millions of devices worldwide. Whether it's the Linux kernel or LibreOffice, our expertise spans across all key areas of Open Source software development, from graphics, multimedia and web engines, to complete, integrated solutions.

Our team of engineers and developers – nearly 100 strong – are among the most motivated and active Open Source contributors and maintainers around the world. They have a passion for technology and Open Source, a key part of our core values. When not working on client projects, Collaborans volunteer their time in their respective expertise domains and participate in the strategic planning of the Open Source projects they invest themselves into.

From tailoring the latest Open Source technologies to your projects, to integrating Open Source methodologies into your organization or contributing your code back to the community, you can count on us to help you navigate the ever-evolving world of Open Source. Contact us today to see how we can work together.

Meet some of the team!
