About Adaptavist

Transform your business 

We help organisations transform to continuous change being their business as usual. We do this by supplying technology, providing advice, and delivering change through modern, iterative approaches to development, deployment, and application lifecycle management.

Our story

Adaptavist was founded in 2005 by three engineers - Guy Fraser, Dan Hardiker, and Alain Moran who caught the attention of Atlassian with their out-of-the-box plug-ins for Atlassian products.  Simon Haighton-Williams joined Adaptavist as CEO in 2010. Today, Adaptavist employs over 300 people (employees and contractors) globally.

Everything we do is around our values - Trust, humility, teamwork, curiosity, and pragmatism.
