Coop IT Easy

Coop IT Easy is a worker cooperative with a social purpose. Our mission is to provide actors of the social economy with professional and open source IT management tools. Thanks to this cooperative, we support projects that work towards a fairer, more united and more sustainable world.

The idea of the cooperative was born from the BEES coop’s IT unit and then developed through COOPCITY’s Seeds program. The adventure started with four people: Virginie, Houssine, Robin and Rémy. The team then grew with the arrival of Vincent, Grégoire and Catherine.

Is this where you join the adventure?
