It’s not hyperbole to say that Segment would not exist, if not for open source. We’re heavy users of Kafka, Redis, Terraform, Docker, Golang, and Node.js, just to name a few of the tools we use. And we literally got our start as an open source library launched on Hacker News.
Today we’re proud to announce the Segment Open Fellowship. The Fellowship is a three month long program supporting three to five open-source developers with $8k per month to focus full-time on their project, no other strings attached.
