The last 16 months have been challenging, to say the least. However, despite the many obstacles brought on by the pandemic, Collabora has continued delivering services to our clients, and continues to build and strengthen our engineering and administration teams for the road ahead. With over 15 years' experience in working remotely, Collabora was, and continues to be, uniquely prepared to support our customers and our teams during these challenging times. 

Based in North Macedonia, France, Brazil, India, Argentina, Brazil and Scotland, these seven new Collaborans join our worldwide team of highly skilled engineers, developers and managers who all share a common passion for technology and Open Source.

Welcome Kiril, Benjamin, Daniel, Shreeya, Ariel, Nicolas and James!

Kiril Bicevski

Our new Project Manager, Kiril Bicevski, brings with him more than 13 years of experience in the IT industry. He initially started as a Java developer then switched to Project Management 5-6 years ago. He is a highly motivated IT professional, with eagerness to learn and because of this he became the best at what he does.

Benjamin Gaignard

Benjamin Gaignard joined our kernel team as Linux Kernel developer.  He is based in France and brings with him years of experience in the Linux and ARM ecosystem, mostly on embedded devices. He has been working on display and video linux subsystems for years.

Daniel Almeida

Daniel Almeida is our Consultant Software Engineering Intern who is an electrical engineering student with a linux kernel development background but currently focusing on multimedia. He will be working on gstreamer during the course of his internship with Collabora!

Shreeya Patel

Shreeya Patel joined our Kernel team as a Consultant Associate Software Engineer. She recently graduated and was working as a DevOps Engineer at Wolters Kluwer. While she was in College, she worked on projects related to IIO Subsystem and also did an Outreachy internship at Linux Kernel for Sound Open Firmware project. She also worked as a Freelancer on Upwork. Her expertise is in Linux Kernel development, AWS, Azure and CI/CD.

Ariel D'Alessandro

Ariel D'Alessandro joined our Kernel team as a Consultant Software Engineer. He was born in a beautiful city called Rosario in Argentina and that is where he currently lives. He got a Computer Science degree from the National University of Rosario. He is been working as a software developer for the past 10+ years. His expertise was focused on Linux embedded systems in the past 5 years (Linux Kernel, U-boot, Buildroot, Yocto).

Nicolas F. R. A. Prado

Nicolas F. R. A. Prado is a recent graduate based in Brazil who joined Collabora as a Consultant Software Engineering Intern to work on test development for Linux's camera stack. He is passionate about the hacker culture and free software movement, and has contributed to the Linux kernel on the documentation toolchain as well as on the vimc driver. He is also currently working on upstreaming a flash LED driver on his spare time.

James Addison

James Addison is a software developer from Edinburgh who became a Linux and open source enthusiast after a friend provided him with a copy of Slackware and another friend introduced him to the vim editor.  He enjoys writing and cleaning up Python code and contributing back to open source projects when he encounters bugs, including tracing and fixing them as time allows.


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 Collabora to help you navigate the ever-evolving world of Open Source. Contact us today to see how we can work together.
