Culture

Our culture represents the set of ideas, knowledge and traditions that we stand for.

It’s not by chance that we have a strong culture based on specific values. When in 2011, amidst the financial crisis, we left our safe jobs at a big corp to create a place we’d love to work at, we knew how privileged we were.

We tirelessly work to put our skills and expertise to good use. In other words, we make sure we are playing an active role in building a better society.

We have very clear red lines.

Pursuing diversity or open source is smart; Honestly, even more important, we believe it's simply fair.

Our journey starts here

2011
July

In 2011 fourteen people decided to leave their well-paid secure jobs at a big corp and create a new company.

The first name of this company was Ars Code. Fortunately, it was short-lived and it was changed to Kaleidos.
