Our Vetting Process

How We Select Open Source Architects?


Proven Track Record In Delivering Results

Our first step in the vetting process is to review an OSAs track record in delivering and leading technology projects which often includes experience contributing to and leading in open-source communities. We look into the projects delivered and the business results the OSA helped a company attain to get more detailed insight. We select OSAs who can lead and know what it takes to help drive more business value.


Client Satisfaction

For each OSA we assess the satisfaction of previous clients with their work and get recommendations. As a result, the OSAs in our network all have top referrals from prior engagements.


Technical and Social Reputation

In addition to client satisfaction, we evaluate how an OSA performs within their network. For example, we consider the code they have written, community leadership, and their social reputation. An OSAs reputation among their peers provides us additional insights into their leadership capabilities, reputation, talents, and skills.


Continued Commitment To Success

OpenTeams is entirely committed to your project's success.   We join our open source architects' with our project success program to ensure your complete satisfaction with each engagement.
