Overview

Kinvolk is a Berlin-based company working on the technologies at the core of modern Linux systems. We are passionate open source contributors and demonstrate our expertise on the open source projects we work on like systemd, Kubernetes, Linux, rkt, GNOME, and many more.

What we work on

Our client work focuses on improving upstream projects that clients depend on and working on client projects that require expert knowledge of the underlying system. Our background working on a wide variety of challenging projects, ensures that Kinvolk’s team has an immediate impact.

How we work

We pride ourselves on working well with client development teams. A typical project sees our team becoming a remote, well-integrated, part of the client’s existing team.

Our open-source contributions are done following best practices and we work closely with the upstream maintainers to our solutions work for our clients and the upstream maintainers.

Community

Kinvolk takes an active role in organizing events for the open source communities it’s involved with. We are a founding organizer of systemd.conf, the systemd community conference that brings over a hundred systemd developers together each year. We also organize a variety of Berlin meetup groups around cloud native computing, CoreOS, systemd and open-source.

We believe such events make open source communities stronger and consider it an important part of our company culture.
