We take pride in being a locally owned New Zealand company, founded by three people passionate about the limitless possibilities of the web. They shared a vision: to reshape business through the web.
Twelve years on, it is critical that we continue to make great things that delight our clients. We hire the best of every field, and with a combination of innovative design and development, open source web tools, and Agile approaches to delivering software, we tailor cutting-edge web applications and websites that help people engage with the organisations we work with.
We are creative, by making clean design and innovative technology our forte. We offer fresh ideas and new perspectives on how your business can be better on the web.
We are open. We are open to new ideas and new technology. This drives the open source product and is why we embrace Agile software delivery. We focus on transparency, frank communication and proactive problem solving throughout projects.
And last but not least, we are committed. We are passionate about what we build, and we focus on delivering the best possible work. We are committed to earning your trust by repeatedly delivering beyond expectations, delighting both you and your customers, and to building relationships that last.
Create the web
Our slogan, create the web, speaks at two levels. At one level, we create pieces of the web: the innovative and valuable websites and products that we build. But beyond that, it points to something bigger: the desire to define the future of what the web can be, helping push it into new places.
We are strong advocates of open source software. We believe in - and have experienced firsthand - the power of an open developer community. The best way to encourage and create better software is to have people contribute back to the main code base and share their work with others.
In November 2006 we released the SilverStripe CMS as a free, open source download, followed by with SilverStripe Framework in 2012. We chose to release under the BSD license because we consider it the most business-friendly and developer-friendly license.
Open-sourcing our software has been a far bigger success for our company than we could have imagined. The global interest in SilverStripe the company and SilverStripe the product has been astounding. We have seen strong growth in adoption of our software around the globe. In addition, many of our larger customers are now developing unique and novel solutions on top of SilverStripe and are integrating our software deep into their own product offerings.
As the technology industry evolves and open source is increasingly becoming the default option for businesses, organisations and government, SilverStripe will remain at the centre of this evolution and help push awareness and adoption not only for open source, but related concepts such as open data.
