My name is Lenz Grimmer and I am a Linux/Open Source enthusiast since 1995.

I currently live in Hamburg, Germany and work for SUSE LINUX GmbH, leading the team that develops the Open Source Ceph and Storage Management system openATTIC , which SUSE acquired from it-novum in November 2016.

I joined it-novum GmbH as the development and product management team lead for openATTIC in July 2015.

Before, I worked at TeamDrive Systems GmbH as a Senior Product Manager from January 2014 until June 2015.

From April 2011 until December 2013, I was a member of the Oracle Linux Product Management Team at Oracle.

Prior to that role I worked in the MySQL community relations team. Before I joined that team in December 2005, I worked there as a senior production engineer, in charge of producing the offical MySQL server release builds.

Before MySQL, I was a member of the distribution development team of SuSE Linux AG in Nuernberg, Germany from April 1998 until the end of March 2002.

My professional career started in 1996, as a Linux/Unix systems administrator at Comvos GmbH in Mannheim, Germany.
