1. Open Source is in Our Genes
At SUSE, open source is a way of life. We started as an open source company over 20 years ago, and we're still committed to that development model. For us, being active contributors in upstream communities is essential—not just because it's our heritage, but because we believe it's the only way open source technologies will continue to thrive.
And it doesn't stop there. Being open is also part of our culture. We are expected to be transparent, share information and participate in critical business decisions—regardless of rank or function, from development, to marketing, to sales and support. We believe in empowering employees to make the right decisions, every day, by giving them the information they need.
2. We Are Enterprise Linux
We believe in listening to our customers, understanding what they need and being flexible so we can help them succeed. In joining SUSE, you will experience first-hand what it means to deliver mission-critical, enterprise-class products. You'll also see what it's like to be trusted by a wide variety of customers worldwide—companies in finance, manufacturing, retail, automotive, defense, public service and countless other industries.
3. Results Matter
Working at SUSE is fun. We also know how to work hard. Our customers tell us they love our service and support. And they appreciate the high quality of our products. We strive to uphold our high standards, setting ourselves ambitious (but achievable) goals and meeting them: product delivery dates, customer satisfaction objectives or financial results. And of course, we know how to celebrate when we do meet them.
4. We Invest in Being Innovative
At SUSE, we proactively create the space we need to take a fresh look at things, to work on innovative approaches and to exchange new ideas. For example, our entire R&D organization participates in two hackweeks each year—dedicated times to explore and experiment on topics that are both interesting and important. Similarly, our SUSE Labs group organizes an annual conference, together with the openSUSE community, where they engage in discussions on emerging open source technologies.
5. You Matter
At the end of the day, employees are what make up this company—our collective knowledge, our passion for open source and our dedication to success. And this is why at SUSE, we take great care to make sure our work environment is right.
