Overview

About Us

Flagsmith is an open-source feature flag and remote configuration tool. Flagsmith was built by developers who needed an open-source tool and couldn’t find one on GitHub. We’re a bootstrapped company that believes strongly in building a great product and making it easy for people to deploy and use the product.  Flagsmith had a record breaking 2023, growing 150% YoY and hitting 133% of our annual target. In 2024 we are planning to continue that growth and are excited to keep helping the world’s largest enterprises with feature management..

Flagsmith offers an open-source product plus hosted cloud, private cloud, and on-premise deployment options. This means that people can host the product however suits them. We focus on building a great product, making it widely accessible, and bootstrapping so that we can build consciously and without a predetermined path ahead of us.

We’re growing our Sales team to build on the foundation that we have, and are looking for an AE to join our ranks as we take the next step in our growth journey.
