Contributing to a better future

Open Source Program Office

At Aiven, we want to contribute back to the open source community. To do that, we created an Open Source Program Office (OSPO) – a dedicated team to focus on maintaining the projects businesses around the world depend on.

What’s an Open Source Program Office?

The Aiven OSPO makes sure that the projects we offer as managed services are well maintained. We not only take care of Aiven's OSS projects, we also keep a watchful eye on all open source projects that impact Aiven, actively collaborating with external contributors.

Our OSPO team also promotes open source processes and philosophy throughout all our teams at Aiven, helping us all adopt a mindset and environment where we can all contribute to the open source community.

What does OSPO do?

From encouraging open source practices to helping set up and maintain new Aiven-owned OSS projects, the OSPO team is at the heart of everything open source at Aiven.
