DataSift is built on open source software, from front to back. That's the way we work, because we feel the future lies in open source and we like Wikipedia's description: "a philosophy, or pragmatic methodology that promotes free redistribution and access to an end product's design and implementation details."

DataSift engineers contribute to and release a lot of open source software.
