Mårten Mickos has a long history of successful open source tech companies. He is perhaps most well-known as the CEO for database company MySQL AB, which was sold to Sun Microsystems in 2008. He then went on to become CEO of Eucalyptus, which offered an open source private cloud platform that replicated the APIs of Amazon web Services.
We caught up with Mickos at SXSW to hear about his latest venture, Hacker One, the world’s first vulnerability coordination, and bug bounty platform.
