To our valued customers, collaborators, and open source communities:
As an open source company, you could say we have always been community focused. And in times like this, community is more important than ever.
As COVID-19 continues to have an impact on all of us, we want to assure you that we’re fully operational and we remain focused on the important needs of our community and our customers while taking every precaution to protect our employees. While most of our employees are continuing to work from home, we are staying closely connected—virtually—to the world around us.
- Our software R&D project work continues to move forward: we’re communicating with our customers, writing and committing code, giving talks, writing papers, running our business office, and developing new project ideas.
- We don’t expect any disruption in our online presence: websites, source code repositories, and other resources will continue to be available.
- We’re continuing to grow our talented team by meeting with candidates via remote interviews and welcoming new employees through remote onboarding.
- For the health and safety of our employees and our community, most of our travel has been suspended and we are not providing in-person courses.
An important part of our culture at Kitware is our focus on making a positive impact on the world. Now, more than ever, we are committed to driving that forward. We are fortunate to have a strong purpose, a solid operating structure that enables us to work collaboratively in a remote work environment, and a genuine sense of shared compassion amongst our employees, customers, and collaborators. We feel confident that we will weather this storm together.
