Careers at Collabora

 

Open Source all day, every day

Since 2005, we've helped clients navigate the ever-evolving world of Open Source, enabling them to develop the best solutions – whether writing a line of code or shaping a longer-term strategic software development plan.

Our team of engineers and developers are among the most motivated and active Open Source contributors and maintainers around the world. They have a passion for technology and strive to accelerate the adoption of Open Source technologies, methodologies and philosophy.

If you share this passion, and want to be part of a growing, globally distributed team, we want to hear from you!


We have recently been made aware that there have been emails sent to individuals falsely purporting to be from Collabora employees or the Recruitment team.

These are recruitment scam emails, that may sometimes ask you for personal information such as a password, user ID or even sums of money when making a job application. These emails can look quite convincing, and may contain a Collabora logo, or can come from an email address that looks as if it could be from Collabora. In any case, these emails are false and are not at all associated with Collabora. We are aware of ben@collaboracareers.com and dave@collaboracareers.com being used in these scams.  This is not a Collabora email address and anything received from this address will be a scam.

Collabora does not ask for money, passwords, social security numbers, passport information or credit card details from individuals when applying for any of our roles.  All applications go through our Applicant Tracking system and you will not generally be asked to email your details or resume to us after applying.

Communication from our recruitment team will be via an official email address ending in @collabora.com. We do not communicate via Whatsapp, Signal, or other social media platforms with the exception of Linkedin, nor by text. If you receive an email (or any other communication) which you are unsure about, we strongly suggest that you consider the authenticity before sending any reply. Collabora further strongly suggests that you do not send money or any other information.

12 reasons to join Collabora

1. Open First

“I chose to join Collabora because I wanted to work on open source. Also, I saw the work done by the people at Collabora and I was thinking that it was the best place on earth to evolve as an engineer. Collabora allows me to work on projects that I care about, and because of this, I do my best to improve these projects and also help the community to evolve. Aside from contributing to projects that matter, I'm also learning from very smart people!”

2. Autonomy & personal growth

“I joined Collabora because I wanted to work in free software, and Collabora seemed like the ideal company for this, with a healthy business model and a good reputation. I also enjoy the flexibility to work at any time of the day and from home. My hope is that free software generally gives more meaning to the work of a developer. This hope, along with the high degree of autonomy and trust in Collabora Employees, are what motivates me at work to perform well.”

3. Work-life balance

“I joined Collabora as it's a techie company with a forward-thinking approach and has a start up feel. With my skill set I have been able to add instant value to support the company in its growth. It motivates me knowing that the company respects and trusts me to do a great job, that my opinions count, and that I am valued. I also like that I work with great people and I can work from home and from the office. I love the fact that I can have a good career but I’m still able to collect my kids from school, watch the odd assembly and go back online in the evenings giving me the work life balance to be a good mum and employee!”

4. Flexible work arrangements

“After finishing my master's degree, I approached a few companies that work on open source software and the Linux kernel in particular. I chose them based on company names that I saw on the kernel mailing lists and in the Linux Weekly Newsletter's summaries (e.g. https://lwn.net/Articles/731794/). The second important bit for me was the ability to work remotely since I did not want to relocate, and there are only a few IT companies in my city with most of them working on closed projects. What I like about working at Collabora is that I am getting paid to work on open source software. I also like the flexibility of working from home with a loose timetable. It's something that I already liked during my studies.”

5. Stimulating, rewarding work

“Having great colleagues and working on interesting projects on the cutting edge of FOSS technologies. I also like that I get to work from home (or close to home), which when approached properly, can lead to a good work-life balance. Taking pride at work and having the feeling that I am contributing meaningfully to both the company and FOSS projects are what motivate me to perform well at work!”

7. Personal & career development

“Flexible hours and being able to work from home especially during super snowy days in Montreal! This is great also because I get to balance studying and working full-time, plus taking care of my fur babies! :3 I also work with great people and I get to use my knowledge and skills, and further develop them. Collabora has a learning culture that encourages everyone to never stop learning and developing. They provide support for my personal and career development, and I have great mentors!”

8. Endless opportunities

“I joined Collabora as it is a free source oriented company. Collabora lets me work from home (so no more open-space offices!!!), and provides a competitive salary for my country. The technical skills of engineers in the company gives me a chance to learn new technologies, tricks and approaches. I also really enjoy working with interesting people from different countries. The people I work with, along with interesting and challenging tasks, motivate me to perform well at work. They also provide me with a good opportunitiy to practice English. Finally, I like that I get to participate in conferences!”
