Kitware was founded in 1998 by Lisa Avila, Bill Hoffman, Will Schroeder, Ken Martin, and Charles Law. They wanted to create a company built on the principles of open science, where collaboration was encouraged, and the primary objective was to make the world a better place through scientific innovation. They also wanted to create a culture where employees were encouraged to follow their passions and excited about coming to work every day. Now, more than 20 years later, Kitware continues to embody these values. These core values have allowed Kitware to flourish over the years, with more than 500 active projects worldwide and more than $39 million consolidated revenue. And we plan to uphold these standards in the coming years as we continue to grow as a company.
