Red Hat is the world’s leading provider of open source solutions to Fortune 500 companies. With a global reach consisting of more than 7,900 employees across 80 offices in 35 countries, their goal is to help solve some of the most complex business and IT challenges today, with a focus on fostering a rich eco-system of collaboration and diversity.
