We Believe in Automation

Mergify was founded in 2018 by a team of software engineers with a goal: making code merge seamless.

Genesis and Vision

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 team combines a strong expertise in open-source software development, software quality and digital innovation.
