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 they can leverage their development platform rather than enduring it.


Meet the Team

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

Julien Danjou

Co-Founder & CEO

Free Software hacker for the last 20 years, Julien spent all 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 was listed among the top #100 French Software Developers in 2014 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.

Erwan Simonetti

Software Engineer

Erwan fixed the Internet multiple times under the pseudonym of "Yves". This is probably why he also enjoys fixing bugs.

Mathieu Papazian

Software Engineer

When he's not busy winning Overcooked tournaments, Mathieu enjoys implementing new features on Mergify engine or refactor code on the dashboard.

Hugo Escafit

Marketing Coordinator

Always one step ahead in the game, Hugo always has many ideas on how to reach our users. If you heard about Mergify, it's probably because Hugo yelled loud enough.


We believe in open-source

Our founders have been doing open source for 20 years. We're not stopping here: our engine is also open-source.

Remote-first Company

Our team is spread across the globe since day #1. Inspired by open-source best practices, we work asynchronously and remotely.
