The Citrix Technology Professionals (CTP) Program is an annual award that provides an opportunity for participants to gain deeper insight into Citrix strategies and technologies, including advance knowledge of planned projects. Awardees engage with Citrix leaders to help shape the future of Citrix technologies, providing valuable input on business needs and feedback on product strategy.

Whether it’s in a blog post, a webinar, presentations at Citrix user group meetings around the world, or in peer-to-peer discussions on support sites, their evangelism is invaluable to Citrix.

Benefits

  • Private NDA discussions with Citrix product teams for detailed discussions on current technologies and product roadmaps
  • Access to private forums for discussions with Citrix product teams about technologies, product updates, and product feedback
  • Access to demo licenses of current products and to early releases of future products
  • We are looking for passion, dedication, and selflessness in our CTP members, and, to be honest, a little bit of the star quality that makes them leaders in their respective fields. For 2021, we are looking for a few applicants with expertise in APIs, cloud services, and Citrix Endpoint Management.

If you feel you have what it takes to join this group of elite professionals, you should know a few things about the program.

  • We review our CTP class annually to make sure that we are constantly building out the program and showcasing all skills
  • All applications need to be filled out in full!
  • All applications are reviewed by the Citrix Community team as well as by current CTPs
  • The references provided are checked
  • The award is based on approximately 50% “community contribution” – giving to the technology community without expecting anything in return; and 50% technical expertise – just look at the activities of the current CTPs for guidance
  • The CTP Program Award is open to Citrix customers, independent Citrix experts, consultants and partners. The award is for individuals who best fit the CTP criteria and passion for community.
