We are the Rust Foundation

The Rust Foundation is run by a small team of full time staff, and governed by a Board of Directors who represent the Rust project and our member companies. If you're interested in working at the Rust Foundation, check out our careers page.


Technology and Engineering at the Foundation

The Rust Foundation’s engineering staff are dedicated to supporting the technical needs of the Rust Foundation through software development and administering strategic initiatives in partnership with the Rust Project and wider Rust Ecosystem. Our engineering staff are currently three primary areas of focus:

Board of Directors

Distinguished Advisors

The Rust Foundation executive staff consults with several unpaid advisors outside of the Rust Project who have been selected for their policy-focused knowledge of the Rust community, open source software organizations, and the nonprofit sector. The neutral perspectives of these "Distinguished Advisors" help us consider many different angles when making decisions that fall under their areas of expertise.
