To those who laid the foundation of Matomo.
From the start, there was always something special driving this open-source project forward:
Our contributors from across the globe.
This spirit of people coming together with a shared goal of building a #1 open-source analytics tool has remained. Because of them we can proudly say we’re helping millions of people around the world achieve greater insights.
If you believe in our vision of building an outstanding (and open!) analytics platform, work alongside the Matomo team to continue this growth into the future! To learn more about how you can participate, see Get involved … or simply get in touch with us.
So, who are the Matomo contributors?
In 2005 it became apparent accurate data-driven decisions could now drive businesses … but this opened up questions like, where was data being stored? Who owned it?
Struggling to find answers to these questions, Matthieu Aubry formed Matomo (Piwik) back in 2007, an open-source alternative to Google Analytics. Many data conscious individuals and businesses also chose to follow by taking this alternative route to ensure their valuable data remained in their own hands.
Matthieu found a passionate and hardworking team who shared his vision for a safer web. Together they dedicated countless hours to make Matomo (formerly Piwik) a reality. With this team and help from businesses, including InnoCraft, Mayflower, OpenX and Catalyst to name a few; Matomo quickly grew to become the #1 open-source analytics platform in the world, now used on over 1.4 million websites around the globe.
This team laid the foundation of what Matomo is today.
We are forever grateful for the commitment, the time and the dedication they gave to this project, and for the passion each of them brought and continue bringing to the team.
