Strapi culture

    Strapi  Manifesto cover


    In the digital age, content rules. Production and distribution have shifted from the few to the many. We have all become the media, the media has been marginalized and brands are now broadcasters. Everyone has a story to tell or something to sell. A need to create and connect, post and publish, showcase and share.

    But most people and companies are being held back by an old stack. Stuck with software that’s proprietary, prescriptive and painful to use. Trapped by traditional systems that are slow, siloed and drowning in technical debt. So it's time we changed Content Management Systems (CMS) as we know it. And open up minds to the potential of Headless CMS.

    At Strapi, we believe that everyone should have the power to create content, digital products and user experiences that impact the world. We’re here to fuel the word’s creativity by unleashing the power of content.With the help of amazing open-source contributors, we’re on a mission to develop the most customizable CMS on the market, empowering developers to create millions of digital projects.Strapi enables content-rich experiences to be created, managed and exposed to any digital product, channel or device. It’s self-hosted. 100% Javascript. Headless. Community first. And open-source. And will stay that way forever.

    Strapi is vendor-agnostic, it is designed to work with all the JAMstack sites, static site generators such as React, Next.js, Nuxt.js, Vue.js, Gatsby or Angular, supports both SQL and NoSQL databases and can be hosted anywhere you want: AWS, Netlify, Heroku, a VPS, or a dedicated server.

    Get set up in minutes to build projects in hours instead of weeks without any unnecessary code, drama or lag.

    Our Values

    Stay Humble but Hungry.

    We have a healthy appetite for new ideas, opportunities, growth, and achievements. But we always keep things honest, fair, and down-to-earth. We have high expectations and low egos. We challenge each other to do better and cheer each other on, through the high times and the low. We work and play, learn and grow, win and lose – together.

    Preserve Trust, Pursue Autonomy.

    We trust each other to take ownership of our work, our relationships, our challenges, and our time. We trust each other to ask for support when it’s needed. We can always be trusted to do exactly as we say. No nonsense, no politics, no bullshit. We speak the truth and seek the truth. We’re confident and kind enough to challenge and be challenged; to offer help and to ask for it; to provide tough love, hard truths, and solid backup to everybody we work with.

    Keep Daring, Sharing and Caring.

    We believe that big ideas and breakthroughs come from being open. We keep open eyes, open minds, open hearts, and open-source ;) We work transparently with each other, our investors and our partners. We share knowledge, expertise, and experiences. We respect different viewpoints and working practices to find better ways to work, grow our people, and develop our product.

    Aim for Exceptional.

    We want to make a transformative impact on everything we do. From the biggest breakthrough to the smallest task. We never settle for the status quo. We seek out improvements, ask the big questions, and embrace new ideas to inspire progress and exceed expectations.
