About Flox

We help teams focus on building fast by providing reproducible environments that span the entire software lifecycle. With Flox, developers can create environments that contain all of the tools and frameworks they need, binding them with the software they ship into the world.

Our Story

Flox was originally built to solve the problems the D. E. Shaw group's developers faced adopting Nix at scale. It quickly proved invaluable and became one of the largest and most impactful enterprise deployments of Nix. Flox is backed by a set of investors focused on open source including DESCOvery (the D. E. Shaw group's venture studio), NEA, Hetz Ventures, Addition Ventures, and angels including Thomas Dohmke (GitHub CEO), Guy Podjarny (Snyk founder), and James Turnbull (former VP Docker, CTO Sotheby's).

About Nix

Like many impactful open source software projects, Nix is driven by strong principles. Those principles support a lofty mission: to provide determinism and repeatability for software of all kinds.

This mission represents a new approach to building and managing software. These are fundamental behaviors, woven deeply into the fabric of today’s enterprise systems, and they affect everything the industry has built on top of them.

It has never been easy with software to know “what exactly made that happen?” and “how can I make exactly that happen again?”, but it is now approaching impossibility. Nix is a reimagining of the software stack, and all of our associated behaviors, to make sure we can always know the answers to those questions. We believe that Nix is needed, and that its time is now. However, Nix wasn’t designed for professional teams and organizations with existing software stacks. For these teams, it’s challenging to apply the principles of Nix incrementally. As expansive as the Nix ecosystem is, there is still something missing. We believe we know what enterprises need, and we want to do our part.

Flox exists to help organizations adopt these principles, and we’re in fantastic company. Working together with others in the Nix community, we can help teams everywhere build better software.
