About Kendraio
Kendraio is an independent nonprofit research project, building free open-source software. Our goals are to help individuals and groups save time on admin, reduce stress, and have complete ownership of their data and total control of how it is used.

We’re building Kendraio App, a highly customisable, no-code environment to explore how we could interact with technology with more personal control. Our focus is user centric design, portable data, privacy, interoperability, and enabling user configurable interfaces. We are designing this technology in collaboration with passionate people from a variety of sectors. We are building prototypes based on their real world challenges.

We are currently building working demos with partners, showcasing different use cases. If you dream of radically democratising how people use data, join our team. We’re a team working remotely, with very flexible hours and a purpose: empower people through their data.

Our team culture is very important. Humans first. Our goal is to build an inclusive and safe workplace. Healthy routines and not working overtime is encouraged. We are trying to build a diverse team that celebrates every team member’s individuality and values the different experience and viewpoint that each person brings.
