We believe in automation

Mergify was founded by a team of software engineers with a goal: making code merge seamless.

Founded in 2018

Mergify was built to scratch our own itch. We wanted to have our code merges to be faster, safer and more scalable. We got tired of spending hours typing git commands and clicking through the GitHub user-interface.

We're just getting started

We think development processes should be automated as much as possible to ease onboarding, foster creativity, and remove friction. We want to empower developers to leverage their development platform rather than endure it.

Meet the Team

Our founding team has more than 40 years of combined experience in open-source software development.

For the last 20 years, Julien has spent his career contributing to open-source projects — Debian, Python, OpenStack, and even Emacs. He built entire communities and projects from the ground up, and published books on the Python programming language.

Julien is listed among the top #100 French Software Developers and has code running on Mars.

Mehdi Abaakouk

Co-Founder & CTO

Mehdi has been involved in open-source software development his entire career. He made a significant impact and tremendous technical contribution to projects like OpenStack, Python, or Ceph.

Mehdi worked in multiple start-ups and helped them bootstrap from nothing to scale.
