“At THE Port Hackathon 2014 at CERN I worked on the Blindstore project. A member of my team informed me that a person he knew just created a consulting startup for Linux and Open Source enterprise software – which has always been my passion. Long story short, after I passed a couple of interviews I am now working for this company, doing the job that I love.
Thanks THE Port for this opportunity!”
