A software industry veteran with over 15 years of experience, Florian “Flo” Leibert founded San Francisco-based Mesosphere, Inc., in 2013. Mesosphere’s focus is on the utilization of the Apache Mesos open-source platform, which stands at the core of major websites such as Airbnb and Twitter. Further, Florian Leibert is a member of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the “world’s largest scientific and educational computing society.”
ACM members have the opportunity to join the organization’s Ambassadors program, which offers rewards for the referral of new ACM members. Following an Ambassador’s completion of a referral form, the prospective member receives an email invitation to join ACM at a reduced rate.
Ambassadors receive free gifts for their first referrals, with additional gifts provided upon alternate referrals, meaning they receive prizes for their first, third, fifth, and so on. Each time a prize is due, ambassadors receive an email linking them to the prize pool website, where they select their desired gifts.
Further, Ambassadors receive gifts for every tenth referral, and the best Ambassador for each month of the program enters into a pool of 12 top ambassadors for the year. ACM selects the best Ambassador from this pool each year to win a grand prize.
