Linaro has been driving open source software development on Arm since 2010, providing the tools, Linux kernel quality, and security required to lay a solid foundation for innovation. Industry leaders join Linaro to work on collaborative projects. Working together on joint projects reduces overall software fragmentation and enables member companies to lower their costs for developing and validating ARM-based software.
Tim has over 25 years of international experience in software development and consulting. In his last role at Facebook, Tim built and led several cross-functional teams to define and deliver Integrity Platform initiatives within Facebook. Prior to that, Tim was Senior Director of Software Engineering for the Open Source Software Group at Arm, leading a global team of more than 250 engineers and developing a variety of open source software – from platform browsing to Linux kernel optimization, UEFI, trusted firmware to network, storage and voice support on Arm IP. With a strong background in technical leadership as well as experience working with arm technology and open source, Tim is well placed to lead the engineering organization at Linaro.
?? Arm is deeply committed to supporting the open source software community, and Tim was a key member of the executive team during his time at Arm, driving its growth ,? said Mark Hambleton, Arm Vice President of Open Source Software, Linaro Board Member and Chairman. ?? Both Arm and Linaro will benefit from Tim’s knowledge and experience in the Arm ecosystem when he takes on the role of leading software engineering at Linaro. ??
“Tim has a great track record of building and leading large, distributed engineering teams that are highly efficient and successful,” said Li Gong, CEO of Linaro. ?? We are very pleased that he brings this experience and expertise to Linaro. ??
“Linaro occupies a unique position in the arm ecosystem, providing our members with the collaborative leadership and innovation our members need to successfully enter new markets and introduce new technologies,” said Tim Benton, VP of Engineering at Linaro. ?? I am excited to be part of the future of Linaro and the Arm ecosystem by helping the engineering organization evolve and grow in a rapidly changing industry. ??
Linaro leads the collaboration in the Arm ecosystem and supports companies in working with the latest open source technology. The company employs over 250 engineers who work on more than 70 open source projects, develop and optimize software and tools, ensure smooth product launches and reduce maintenance costs. The work takes place in all segments, including data center and cloud, edge and fog, IoT and embedded, consumers, machine intelligence, telecommunications and networks, autonomous vehicles and high performance computing. Linaro is sales neutral: it aims to provide everyone with the best software fundamentals by working upstream and reducing non-differentiating and costly low-level fragmentation. The effectiveness of the Linaro approach has been demonstrated by the growing membership of Linaro and the fact that Linaro has consistently been listed as one of the world’s five leading providers of Linux kernels since October 3rd.
To ensure commercial quality software, Linaro’s work includes extensive testing and validation on the members’ hardware platforms. The entire scope of Linaro engineering work is open to everyone online. To learn more, please visit https://www.linaro.org and https://www.96Boards.org
