An Insider's view of WhiteSource

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Every day we build tools that help developers to manage their open source in terms of security and licensing compliance, finding new ways to integrate into their code repositories, CI/CD pipelines, IDE's or even web browsers. We spend significant time doing research and being up to date with the latest technologies and market standards.

Our sales teams meet daily with the top clients around the world, sharing with them our innovative and market-defining technology, helping them to develop better software, faster by harnessing the power of open source.

General Sales Manager

What’s the vibe like in the office?

I think our office is the kind of place where you can really satiate your intellectual curiosity and find opportunities to learn things you wouldn’t in a more structured place where the teams are separated by a lot of restrictions on how you can interact.
