President of Absolutely Everything

Carl is a star gazing dreamer who’s still saving for a flight into space and assumes anything is possible even when it’s ridiculously difficult.

He started this crazy train so it’s really his fault we’re constantly doing all of this mind-blowing ****.



Support Super Hero

Aaron is an active Kubuntu Community and Ubuntu Community Council member, skilled with helping customers solve any type of technical support issue. This nerdy human loves all things Google and any new geeky gadgets he can get his hands on. If you need help, just say “Ok Aaron” and your request is his command.



Maven of Production

From stage to (computer) screen, Ann has chosen to bring her production skills to the hallowed realm of System76. She is a vintage fanatic and triple threat: acting, dancing, and singing (sometimes all at once).

Swedish fish forever.



Infra-Structural Engineer

Ben keeps the website running perfectly across all platforms and devices. He relocated to Colorado to be closer to snow.

And family.

But mostly snow.



QA Wizard

Ben really doesn’t like bugs, not in his beer, not in his bed, and especially not in his software/hardware. He is determined to find and exterminate ALL THE BUGS! He moved across the country to surround himself with like-minded Linux lovers. It’s just an added bonus that there’s really great beer to drink while rooting for the Hokies from afar.



SR. VP, Operations & HR

Björn has found the complete answer to the ultimate question of life, the universe, and everything: it’s skiing, on a 42 degree slope. He obsessively checks weather reports throughout ski season. Summer makes him sad.

On weekdays, he keeps everything in the office running flawlessly.



Front End Web Guru

Lord Blake, breaker of chains, builder of bikesheads, and the final thirteenth cylon model. When not plucking away at the computer, you can find him somewhere in downtown Denver listening to music and contemplating self solipsism.



Product Engineer

David does magical engineering things and make sure everything works. In his free time he enjoys hacking on Novacut, making short films, and accidentally inventing 3D cameras.



Customer Happiness Manager

Emma is a friendly, passionate Linux fanatic motivated first and foremost by helping our consumers find their perfect System76 machine. She has a long-standing addiction devotion to the color pink and her favorite things include kittens, pizza, and classic arcade games.



RAD Technician

After several years of assisting and problem-solving for our customers, Ian transitioned to Research and Development. He loves his job even more than the breakfast burritos from the food truck around the corner which is objectively and undeniably better than the one on the opposite corner in every way, don’t even lie.



Engineering Manager

A recovering low-level black hat hacker, he ensures our hardware works flawlessly with the Linux kernel and our OS.

He spends most of his free time programming, with interludes for science fiction and video games. A Rust fanatic, he believes microkernels like Redox are the future, despite all evidence to the contrary.



Product Design Engineer

John has been actively taking everything apart for as long as he can remember so helping to steer the design and development of new products at our manufacturing facility is the perfect fit for this problem-solving wiz-kid. When John isn’t thinking of things to build he spends his time traveling, riding bikes, and skiing.



Prime Creative

Kate took System76’s base logo and transmuted it into a luminous brand. Hired for her obvious appreciation of science fiction, pop culture nerdery, and robots, this dedicated ideator and wordsmith makes sure our brand voice stays firmly off the cuff. She believes beauty will save the world.



VP Marketing

Louisa is an inquisitive marketer fueled by junk food and humor. Laser focused when troubleshooting and hypothesizing, she loves playing devil’s advocate (even to her own theories). Her comrades know the punchline when asked, “Do you like fish sticks?” and instinctively sing the final lyric when hearing, “Catherine Zeta Jones – she dips beneath lasers _________.”



Accounting for Everything

Part-time bookkeeper, full-time ragamuffin, Matt has been counting beans and taking names for over a decade in the Mile High City. Already a Linux (Fedora) user, he fit right in with the System76 mission to bring superior open source software to the masses, which is a fancy way of saying he’s also a nerd.



Baroness of Buying

May is our resident shopaholic. Thankfully, it’s her job, so we haven’t seen a need for an intervention yet. Once she’s done acquiring all the things, our Commander of Chaos keeps them organized by any means necessary. May also enjoys spicy food, reading new books, spicy food, traveling, and you got the part about spicy food, right?



Protector of the Realm

A reformed gardener and cyclist, he’s now all programmer, all the time. His high functioning autism compliments his high functioning passion for the work. By day he maintains the peace within Pop!_OS, by night he is a paladin for Redox, rewriting the world in Rust.

Michael is our hero and likely yours too.



Sales Meowster

System76 salesman by day and cat t-shirt slinging merchant by night, Mitch McMaster is certainly the cat’s meow. He’s always feline happy to help you find the purrfect PC solution. Seriously though, Mitch likes traveling the world, dive bars or any adventure you can throw his way.



VP Sales & Business Development

Sam works hard and plays harder. If he’s not in the office selling brilliant computers to System76’s awesome commercial customers, he’s probably skiing. His passion for the sport is rivaled only by that of Björn and perhaps the country of Slovenia (to which we now ship, thanks to him!).



Production & Logistics Pilot

Sarah is the Robin to our Batman, the Chewie to our Han, and the Spock to our Kirk. She’s one of a kind and takes charge of the details so the rest of us can focus on creating greatness for all of you! Her goal is make people happy and she will climb mountains to do so. Seriously, she loves climbing and won’t shut up about it.
