Open Source coordination – CEO Office

Agustin joined MBition in June 2019. Initially, he worked on an evaluation of different aspects of the software infotainment and instrument cluster platform development and delivery. In parallel, he took over the previous efforts done to move MBition from being an Open Source Consumer to becoming an Open Source Contributor.

After defining an initial strategy as continuation of the previous efforts, Agustín led the efforts at MBition to build relations with organizations like KDE and AGL, define basic internal processes, evangelize within MBition and Daimler management about Open Source, coordinate those early Open Source related activities and define the profiles required to push Open Source internally like in the license compliance front as well as supporting MBition in the hiring of a best in class team of Open Source professionals.

In December 2019 Agustín joined Daimler Group Services Madrid SA to keep pushing MBition´s Open Source strategy, now remotely from Spain. During this time, Agustín kept supporting senior managers and MBition´s leadership team in executive and portfolio management topics related with Linux distributions. He also helped the organization to attract senior talent in engineering and management areas as well as helping MBition to embrace remote work..

During the spring of 2020, Agustín moved away from leading the Open Source efforts at MBition to become part of the CEO Office to drive executive topics including the support of the product leadership team in delivery and management topics related with continuous delivery principles and practices, product metrics or partnerships.
