Univention’s vision is a world in which people and organizations alike use IT in a self-determined way and can help shape it – for us, this can be summarized as Digital Sovereignty. We derive our mission from this vision: We create IT solutions that are open, transparent and easy to use. This is what all our teams are working on at various levels.
Here at Univention, it is a matter of course that women work in development and hold management positions. Our best example is Monika. As Head of Software Engineering, she is responsible for software development, including product development and maintenance, as well as new and further developments. In this interview, she talks about diversity in teams, her first encounters with open source software, and the importance of open communication.
