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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
"As soon as I set foot in the Red Hat offices, I was encouraged to give feedback and share ideas." - Casey, Marketing & social media intern
I have been working at Red Hat full-time (More than a year)
Good place to work, the sheer amount of stuff available to learn and do while working here is staggering, not only within your own team but outside as well . Red Hat is about culture, the culture fit is as important as the job fit. If you fit the culture, you'll thrive. If not, you will not last long.
Being a remote employee at Red Hat can be a very lonely experience Sometimes it doesn't even feel like you work for the company, just that you exist as a person who does things and gets paid..
Advice to Management
With the IBM acquisition there is a real fear of the Red Hat culture dying. Protect it!
I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Red Hat (San Diego, CA) in August 2017.
A Red Hat recruiter (OK, "Talent Acquisition Specialist" :-) ) contacted me about this position. He explained that the interview process would probably take about three weeks due to the schedules of various involved individuals. I spoke with the manager who will be my direct supervisor first a couple of days after initial contact. He was very personable, and it was clear that they're looking for personality and cultural fit as well as technical expertise. A few days after that, I had a second phone interview with a senior architect where the questions became more technical, but it was still clear that wasn't all they wanted. Both of these interviewers were clearly very happy with their jobs and careers, and that was really exciting. In most cases, there would have been a phone call with the account exec that the position is to support (turns out I already knew him, so we skipped that part!) followed by an in-person panel type of interview, which we also skipped... apparently they were already satisfied that I was their guy :-) All in all, it was a very positive experience for me, and made me even more excited to join the team!
I had talked with Red Hat previously about a different role, which included more travel than I was comfortable with. Those who want to work with Red Hat should be aware that a lot of travel is likely to be part of the deal for some positions. Also, that last time, I had taken their HackerRank test, which is very similar to an RHCSA / RCHE exam. You will NOT be able to fake your way through that. Having a Red Hat certification in hand is very helpful, as they know what that means. And if you aren't really excited about Red Hat and have a certain basic amount of knowledge of their products, you likely won't make it far in the process. Everyone I've dealt with loves working here, and it's clear they're well taken care of. But that means they can afford to be picky.
