About us

Who are we?

Plataformatec was founded in 2009 in São Paulo, Brazil. Our mission is to generate positive impact for our team, clients and the software industry through our products and services, whether paid or not.

For our clients, we have services for development, consulting and training, specialized in Elixir, Ruby and agile. We focus on digital companies.

For the software industry as a whole, we contribute in a number of unpaid ways. The ones that stand out are: open source, lectures, books, content and own events.

Open Source

Without open source, we would not be where we are.

In the first year of the company, we already created our first open source project: Devise. Years later, we created our own programming language, Elixir.

Over the years, members of our team have also made several contributions to Ruby on Rails. Three members or former members of Plataformatec even joined the Rails Core Team.

We are proud of our open source work and want to contribute even more.

These are our main projects. To see all of them, join our Github.

Publications and Content

We love sharing knowledge.

We believe that the content produced by our team helps the software industry as much as our services.
