About us





CODING THE WORLD

Zenika was established in France in 2006. It has grown rapidly since then, starting from a single office of five staff in Paris and flourishing into an international team of over 290 employees spread across seven offices in Europe and Asia.
The name “Zenika” is an anagram of “kaizen”, a Japanese business philosophy based on continuous improvement of working practices.
We are a software development company whose mission is to drive change via IT innovation. Our consultants are passionate developers who are always searching beyond the horizon of current trends. Many of them have written books, do open-source contributions, teach classes and speak at popular meet-ups and conferences.

Zenika entered the Asian market by opening its Singapore office in August 2016. Our Singapore team has expanded steadily and is currently working on several engagements in South East Asia involving Java/Spring, Angular, microservices, CI/CD, Elasticsearch…

Our activities in Singapore cross various industries. We are working with several Singaporean and international banks on their digital transformation to integrate technological solutions for both customers and staff. We also work with a leading global investment firm from the Singapore government to improve their software development practices.  Leveraging that same knowledge, we offer customised consulting services for startups in all sectors with particular involvement in the local fintech business.

In addition to our commercial engagements, we are active members of the Singapore Developers community. We have founded the Singapore Java User Group and are co-organisers of the first conference in Singapore for Java/JVM developers which will take place in June 2017 at Marina Bay Sands.

Our Values

When we set up Zenika, we had in mind the kind of company that we would have liked to work in when we were consultants – a community of experts sharing the following values:

  • Continuous improvement
  • Technological expertise
  • The spreading of knowledge
  • The 2.0 company: the consultant at the heart of the business
  • Quality after-sales service

Kaizen, or continuous improvement, written into our DNA

The word “kaizen” is the combination of two Japanese words “kai” and “zen” which mean respectively “change” and “good”. Kaizen is one of the 14 principles which are to be found in Lean methodology. By choosing the name “Zenika” – an anagram of “kaizen” – we firmly wrote this concept of continuous improvement into our genetic code.

At the cutting edge of technological expertise

Technical knowledge has a limited shelf life! With this in mind and still in keeping with the continuous improvement spirit, the Zenika expert is at the centre of three fundamental activities: consulting, development and training. This triple competence makes it possible to better master the multiple facets of a particular technology in order to adapt it to the client’s needs.

Zenika’s commitment to the spreading of knowledge

Constantly keeping knowledge up to date is one of the pillars of continuous improvement. This explains why Zenika invests in and is totally committed to the spreading of knowledge.

  • Since the end of 2008 we've organized conferences given by internationally-recognized speakers in the range of 20 conferences a year.
  • Our consultants benefit from time dedicated to R&D and the production of blogs or the creation of user groups.
  • We sponsor conferences and industry events.
  • We contribute to Open Source projects.
  • On the first Wednesday of each month we organize our ZenLabs during which our consultants share in-house their knowledge regarding technology and associated themes.

A 2.0 company model

Openness is an integral part of our relationship with our consultants. We involve them deeply in the logic of continuous improvement, in the relationship with our clients and in the amount of business that they generate as well as in their career development within the company.

Each one of our consultants enjoys:

  • performance-based bonuses
  • professional language training
  • a company iPhone with an unlimited internal call package
