Meet the Team

We believe in the unique combination of top-notch UX and the world-changing power of Open Source.

elementary was founded in 2007 by a small group of passionate volunteers. Over the years, we’ve been able to grow into a tiny company and fund the development of open source software. We’re a dedicated team of developers, designers, writers, and everyday computer users crafting an incredible open computing experience. We are elementary.
