Red Hat – Why Work With Us?


Expand your opportunities

Red Hat is where the most passionate, creative, and high-performing people in the tech industry come together to make a difference. We build and support the only fully open source technology stack, and we're passionate about showing the world the power of the open source way.

At Red Hat, our work feels important because it is. Transparency and collaboration are changing the world, and we've proven that you can build a company on those principles. Every day is full of opportunities for you to contribute your ideas, help solve complex problems and have a meaningful, tangible impact.

Our diverse, inclusive meritocracy
As an open source leader, our business depends on diverse groups of people coming together to share ideas, collaborate, and spur innovation.

At Red Hat, diversity fuels our meritocratic culture by bringing in more participants and ideas and challenging our assumptions. We are committed to growing diversity and inclusion both at Red Hat and in the communities in which we work and live.

                    

Diversity and inclusion within Red Hat
Internally, we are building an inclusive culture where diverse perspectives are valued through programs like our Diversity + Inclusion Communities (what other companies call employee resource groups), learning opportunities on topics like inclusive teamwork, and more.

Sharing the power of open source
Red Hat supports many programs that are designed to get traditionally underrepresented groups involved in open source, like Outreachy, CO.LAB, Open Source Day at the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing, and much more. We also created the Women in Open Source Awards to shine a light on the valuable contributions women are making to the open source movement.

Learn more about what we’re doing to make Red Hat and open source more diverse and inclusive.

Most companies describe what you will experience on their best days. We think it's more useful to know what you can expect from a typical day here. Find out if Red Hat is right for you.

                        

Purpose
We're leaders in a movement that's bigger than ourselves. We work to defend software freedom, connect people and ideas, and show the world the power of the open source way.

Passion
We're energized by our work and expect to be heard. Our passion inspires us to explore new technologies and ideas. It pushes us to work harder and create better things for the world.

Community
Anyone can contribute their ideas, and your ability to influence isn't defined by a job title. Red Hatters like solving problems. They're dedicated to sharing information and making a difference.

Opportunity
This is a fast-paced, ever-changing business, and we contribute to some of the most interesting trends in technology. You have the chance to make an impact and grow beyond the job you were hired for.

                        

 

Freedom, courage, commitment, accountability. All lived in balance.

Red Hatters hold each other accountable for living our four values in balance.

As a company, we are like a ship that rights itself when we lean too heavily in the direction of any one of these four values. Our values help us sustain our culture amidst growth and change. It isn't always easy for people who naturally gravitate toward freedom or courage to work with those who lean more toward accountability or commitment. With diversity of thought comes tension and conflict, and our values help us find a path forward.

                      

Expand your opportunities

There's no such thing as an ordinary day at Red Hat. We hire creative, passionate students who are ready to work and learn within an innovative and dynamic company.

      

We have an open and collaborative culture that's based on meritocracy—letting the best ideas win. Freedom and courage are two of our core values, which is why our interns need to be comfortable taking risks and exploring the unknown. Yet being a Red Hatter isn't just about boldness; it's also about demonstrating commitment and being held accountable by colleagues.

“My favorite thing about Red Hat is its welcoming corporate culture. I love working in a place that invites innovation and welcomes new ideas with an open mind. Open source in more ways than one!" -  Jawaher Ali, Project Accounting Intern
