We dont like heroes and hierarchy. Our developers are the ones conducting all the interviews. Since we benefit so much from the open source community, we expect that all our developers are involved with community work, either contributing to open source projects and writing blogs, or attending user group meetings. This is our way to give something back." 22Monday, 11 March 13 22
