Who are we?

What drives us

Our mission is to bring all the advantages of static technology to developers while giving editors intuitive interfaces and workflows to update content. We believe most informational websites should be static. The reason they’re not is non-technical editors need to update content.

Our team

Founded in Dunedin, New Zealand and now serving customers from all over the world. Our team is passionate about doing our part in making static site generators mainstream.
