Our Story

Work together better and enjoy life more

Meet the Gliffy Team

Gliffy was founded in 2005 in a San Francisco apartment by two software engineers who liked solving problems together, wanted a job that didn’t feel like one and thought an online diagramming tool would save time for their fellow engineers.

A growing team and millions of diagrams later, Gliffy is used by the likes of Twilio, Pixar, Netflix, Nike and Harvard.

While many things have changed, we still believe in the power of the visual to bridge communication gaps. We create tools that harness that power and help teams work better together.

A better life for all

At Gliffy, we not only believe in a better life for our users and our team, but the community at large. We’re a member of the 1% Pledge, a group of companies that donate 1% of their profits to charity, but we actually pledge 5%. We also have quarterly hands-on volunteer outings.
