it's part of our integrity first value
And this is the space where we celebrate it. We've learned from experience the value of a real "felt" culture. We knew from the start that there were things we would commit to, things we would do the same and things we would do differently.
Beliefs are nothing without action to support them. That's where the true test lies really isn't it?
When you choose to work with us as a team member or as a valued client, know this; we are committed to attaching actions to our beliefs. The following is a taste of what we've already put into place.
team stock option plan
We intend to share.
fourTheorem is a people based business which involves inclusion and participation in ownership. We want to ensure that in the event of a sale of the business in the future, those who work alongside us on that journey share in the rewards associated with an exit.
To that end, as part of our Founders Agreement, we have committed to the creation of an ‘Exit Only’ Share Option Scheme which will see 50% of the net sale proceeds shared amongst our team - employees and independent contractors, irrespective of where in the world they are situated.
This is a key pillar of our commitment to our team. When you talk to us about opportunities with fourTheorem, we have much more to share with you.
We've developed our own open source serverless tool for the community.
We are committed to being part of the growing Serverless community globally and have spoken at industry leading conferences as well as attended community-driven events.
SLIC (Serverless | Lean | Intelligent | Continuous)
Our most exciting commitment to Serverless is through the development of an open source project called SLIC Starter. SLIC Starter is a complete starter project for production-grade serverless applications on AWS. SLIC Starter uses an opinionated, pragmatic approach to structuring, developing and deploying a modern, serverless application with one simple, overarching goal:
Get your serverless application into production fast - first time and every time
This project will be free to use by enterprise, startups, students, educators, enthusiasts and sceptics alike. We actively encourage contributions, suggestions and questions from anyone. Contact us if you'd like to find out more...
It underpins every meaningful step forward in our industry.
We are in an age of unprecedented advances in software design and development. We know that this would not have been the case without the massive impact of open source. Open source projects like Linux, Git, Node.js, Ruby and Docker have had revolutionary effects. The cloud is built on open source.
What does Open Source mean to us?
Our team have a long track record in open source. We have sponsored and contributed actively to open source projects. We know that software development tools, frameworks and libraries are better off as open source projects. The collaboration and feedback of a larger community brings higher quality compared to internal projects with a limited audience.
What does Open Source mean to your business?
Open source is there to accelerate your technology journey. It is never about giving away your intellectual property. Your IP always remains yours. By consuming and contributing to open source, you are unlocking a global community of expertise. When you partner with fourTheorem, we use our open source software to get more done in less time.
future software systems architectures
Advancing the use of emerging technologies.
As part of our ongoing research agenda, fourTheorem is delighted to announce its strategic involvement in the Disruptive Technologies Innovation Fund (DTIF) focusing on Future Software Systems Architectures.
In conjunction with Lero researchers at Dublin City University and Fineos Corporation, the consortium has accumulated €2.1M in total funding to revolutionize how companies go about taking advantage of serverless computing infrastructure. The majority of the funding has been awarded by the DTIF, a fund established by the Irish government to promote disruptive technologies.
The project’s core goals are to advance the use of emerging technologies, including Machine Learning (ML), to automate the modernization of aging systems and convert them into modern serverless, cloud-native microservices.
“It will be about uncoupling the structures and dependencies within existing platforms, and automating a transformation into microservices”, said Peter Elger, CEO of fourTheroem. “
The FSSA project is directed by Dr. Paul Clarke and Prof. Rory O'Connor, both of DCU and Lero, the Irish Software Research Centre. Read more about the project here.
