Pantheon Heroes Advocacy Program

Making Magic Happen, Together

Score awesome perks for doing what you love most—sharing your love for Pantheon and giving back to the open web.

Who are Pantheon Heroes?

Pantheon Heroes are our most active, loyal, and enthusiastic customers, who devote their time to give back to open source projects both on and off the Pantheon Platform. When they are not contributing to the greater good of the open web, they are likely sharing their love for Pantheon at local WordPress and Drupal events, on social media, and much more.

From Developers to Directors and Community Managers to Educators, if you have a passion for Pantheon and open source, we have a place for you!
