Our Mission:

Are you a motivated experienced person, used to working in an international multi-cultural environment, who really wants to make a difference in the open-source world? Are you looking for a role where you can really make an impact?

At Open-Xchange, we decided to leave dead-end jobs where you don't make an impact and offer passionate experts the opportunity to be part of an international team that connects the world and millions of people by developing and delivering open-source technologies.  

We believe it’s crucial to work in an environment where people feel valued, are energized by their work and deliver added value – not only to colleagues, but also to everyone using our products.


So this is what you get at Open-Xchange:

  • You’ll learn from experts and increase proficiency by sharing your knowledge and profiting from theirs.
  • You’ll work with colleagues from all over the world, so connecting people is not only our vision, it’s the way we work.
  • You'll use open-source technology and play your part in the fight against big, dominant companies to keep the internet open.
  • You'll work in a company with the whole tech stack.


Does that sound like the working environment for you? If so, please get in touch and we can start the discussion.

Many experts feel trapped in their job and don't think they can make a difference; however, that’s simply not true – everyone can make a difference! 

Be ready to shape your personal future, and the future of millions of people.
