We are the company behind Elixir

Elixir is a programming language created in 2012 as a research and development project at Plataformatec, led by José Valim (one of our founders).

We are co-creators of famous Elixir projects such as Ecto. We’re part of the Phoenix core team.

Besides creating the language and being part of core teams of big Elixir community projects, we also have famous Elixir open source projects of our own, such as Mox, Flow and Broadway.

Elixir is a dynamic, functional language designed for building scalable and maintainable applications. Elixir leverages the Erlang VM, known for running low-latency, distributed and fault-tolerant systems.

Logo Phoenix

We are part of the Core Team of Phoenix, a web development framework written in Elixir.

Elixir is a language aligned with current hardware and market trends. Multi-core support makes software scalable and, along with language tooling, offers productivity during development. Several frameworks expand Elixir to other domains, such as realtime web applications (Phoenix), embedded software (Nerves) and data processing (Flow).
