OpenCredo was founded in open source, with a vision of solving real-world business problems using emerging technology. Nine years on, our vision remains the same.
As technology evolves, so do we. While our team has grown, and our technical skills and experience has deepened, we retain an appetite for learning. The possibilities and solutions that emerging technologies offer never fails to inspire and excite us.
We’re well-known for our ability to partner and collaborate with our customers, to adapt and rise to their unique business challenges, ensuring we deliver sustainable solutions that really work for them.
In 2017 OpenCredo became a part of the Trifork group. We remain London-based and continue to serve the UK, Europe and US with our technical expertise and services.
