Our culture of openness, curiosity, and continuous innovation is reflected in the software that we develop. We don’t stick to one idea, one technology or one domain but strive to combine the benefits of a commercially developed product—efficiency, reliability, and value—with the benefits of an open system—collaboration, flexibility, and customization.


We are deeply passionate about building an organization that puts employee development and learning at the heart of our strategy. In our high-velocity industry mastering, the process of evaluating, filtering and adopting new ideas is not an option, but a strategic necessity to stay on top.


We strive for excellence in what we do.  Our Team constantly proves through various data science competitions that it belongs to the best in the world.
