Scientists, making better open tools, for scientists.

Our mission is to facilitate and promote Open Science with high-quality, minimal-cost tools.

We aim to do this by the following principles:

  1. Maintaining open practices and code ourselves, wherever feasible
  2. Generating sufficient revenue to allow our tools to be professionally maintained
  3. Doing right by our staff, by being a respectful and thoughtful employer
  4. Doing right by contributors to our open source code, by valuing their contributions and time
  5. Doing right by the larger community by creating high-quality, affordable tools, and nurturing a helpful, inclusive culture
