About us

Camunda, based out of Berlin, Germany, was founded in March 2008 and currently employs more than 70 employees. The corporation is managed by the founders and owners and has not raised any external funding (venture capital, loans, etc.). It has been profitable since the founding date and has grown organically. This has led to remarkably stable leadership which, in both short and long term perspectives, benefits our customers.

Camunda has been focusing on the topic of business process management (BPM) since day one and, among other things, participated in defining the BPMN 2.0 standard. The book "Real-Life BPMN", which was published in 2009, has become one of the most successful publications on BPMN and is available in English, Spanish and German.

In 2014, Camunda Inc. was established in San Francisco, California.

The Story behind "Camunda"

Camunda comes from the latin verbs "capere" ("to comprehend") and "munda" ("clean"). It basically means that we want to deeply understand the world around us, and based on that understanding we want to act in a way that is both effective and ethically correct - to make the world a better place, for all of us. When founding Camunda we also chose this name, because we wanted to make a difference to those consulting enterprises mostly interested in their own shareholder value and offering their counsel based on dangerous half knowledge.

Started as a BPM consulting business, today we are primarily a BPM software vendor. But the spirit of those very first days persisted, and so we are still passionately "capering" the world around us and creating a software product in a way that is "munda" by any means...
