Nexedis' free software is currently used by corporations (Airbus, Sanef, Mitsubishi, GKR) around the world (France, China, Ethiopia) as well as international financial institutions. We are primarily developing with Python and JavaScript and are idealistic regarding open-source and free software - even in daily operations. We follow the principles of reflexive programming, enforce strict unit testing and emphazise using the latest web technologies.

Our economic model requires each developer to fulfill R&D objectives aiming at deliverying short and medium solutions to customer requirements and progressing the evolution of our software stack. This way we try to be innovative and fund long term free software without the need for venture capital. Our team of engineers is still small and spread around the world. We work without meetings or paper and have a flat hierarchy expecting everyone to self-organize and contribute.
